A Boston man pled guilty in a glass eating scheme. Apparently, he and his wife were going to different establishments, eating glass, and then making insurance claims.
How do people like this get caught? It really is quite easy. When you file an insurance claim, you go into the ISO Claims Index. They put in as much information as they have. If you file a subsequent claim, the insurance company then can pull all of your prior claims. They see a pattern and suddenly the Department of Insurance is called for an investigation.
Really, it is a bad idea to file false insurance claims.
