Wanda Podgurski committed an insurance fraud for more than $650 000 on a false disability claim. She didn’t go to court to hear her sentence as she wisely predicted it would be imprisonment. Wanda decided to go to Mexico instead where she would probably still be if she hadn’t posted the following on her Tweeter account :
Wanda’s final tweet
Podgurski’s single follower on Tweeter was, ironically, the district attorney who happened to be prosecuting her case. He immediately alerted the Computer and Technology Crime Response Team and it took them just a month to locate and arrest Wanda. Her attempt to escape added another 10 years to the original 20 of her sentence.
