Cathy Wrench Cashwell a Fayetteville, N.C. postal worker claimed she had an on-the-job injury which prevented her from lifting mail trays and putting them in the truck. She claimed, according to an article in the NY Times, the, "injury prevented her from reaching or grasping," because it caused her great pain to even move her arm.

Cashwell had been receiving workers compensation checks since 2004, the year she allegedly hurt herself until recently when she was caught spinning the big wheel on 'The Price is Right'. In the video Cashwell used one hand to spin the big wheel the first time and then both hands to spin the big wheel the second time...busted.

A fraud indictment initiated against Cashwell also mentions, "that Cashwell and her husband went on a cruise in 2010," according to the, "where they both went ziplining, Cashwell’s claim in 2011 stated that she couldn’t stand, sit, kneel, squat, climb, bend, reach or grasp.:

Cashwell is scheduled to be sentenced on the fraud charges in September.

The Bible says in Proverbs 20:17 ESV, "Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man (or woman in this case), but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel."

For Cashwell and others who seek to make money through fraudulent means there is a time when the money is sweet and the lifestyle seems good, but eventually there is an afterward, when the time comes for judgement.. This is the moment when as Proverbs states the,"mouth will be full of gravel."

The best course of action is to always remain honest or as Proverbs 24:25 puts it, "to those who rebuke the wicked will be delight, And a good blessing will come upon them." As the old saying goes, "honesty is always the best policy."
