Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit investigated Aadvon Pollitt for working while receiving worker’s compensation benefits after receiving a referral from the Delaware Department of Insurance Fraud. In November of 2013, Pollitt was injured while working as a maintenance mechanic at Cushman and Wakefield. Pollitt then stopped working and began to receive worker’s compensation benefits through AIG Property Insurance. Pollitt received in excess of fifteen thousand dollars in medical and lost wage benefits from AIG for the period of November of 2013 until April of 2014. However, the investigation revealed that two weeks after his injury at Cushman and Wakefield, Pollitt began to work as a maintenance clerk at the Sheraton Suites Hotel. Detectives spoke to supervisors at both Cushman and Wakefield and the Sheraton Suites Hotel and learned that Pollitt’s job responsibilities at both places of employment were identical. Pollitt therefore fraudulently received over ten thousand dollars in worker’s compensation benefits while he was simultaneously working full-time at a new place of employment. Pollitt was arrested on November 2, 2015 for receiving worker’s compensation benefits while working as a janitor at Sheraton Suites Hotel. He was charged with Insurance Fraud, Theft by Deception and a Violation of Worker’s Compensation Act and is next scheduled to appeal in the Philadelphia Municipal Court on November 10, 2015.
