It is stuff like this that infuriates me.

OMAHA, Neb.Two wanted men are in custody after they were caught posing as Hurricane Katrina victims in Nebraska this week.

Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said the men were arrested after they claimed to be evacuees and tried to get aid at a state Health and Human Services office in Omaha earlier this week.

These idiots weren’t even from New Orleans - they are residents of Omaha. 

The patrol discovered that one man faced an arrest warrant for failure to appear in a felony forgery case. The other man faced a felony warrant for the unauthorized use of a financial transaction device.

Guess you can add "dumbass, stupid opportunist" to the list of charges as well.  Disgusting.

I'd heard that scam-type begging was on the rise. It always amazes me the time and energy such people will put into trying to con people out of money, but a day job that takes the same amount of time and less energy is out of the question.

Well, one good thing about it, the idiots got arrested for their outstanding warrants while they were committing yet another crime. Score one for the good guys!

OMG...what a couple of dorks. I don't know why, but this made me laugh -probably because everything we hear about NO is so sad and this turned out good. Good post Merri.

There was some idiot who got nailed for the same thing in Jersey the other day. He had obtained funds fraudulently and used the money to make a down payment on a car, I think, and he was caught out when they realized he had supplied either a Jersey area code or zip code. LOL!
Can anybody say, "moron"?
