Florida Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal Jeff Atwater is urging Floridians to celebrate safely during upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations.
The Department of Financial Services’ Division of Investigative and Forensic Services (DIFS), which operates under the direction of CFO Jeff Atwater, today announced the arrest of Orlando resident Ricardo Aponte on workers’ compensation fraud charges following an elaborate scam involving an alleged on-the-job injury. Aponte claimed to have suffered a work-related neck injury that prevented him from bending his body and prohibited him from working. As a result, Aponte’s employer paid more than $500,000 in medical and lost-wage costs related to the supposed injury.
