Fraud
Kaikoura man Mike Gibson was today sentenced to 200 hours community service, after pleading guilty last year to six charges of making false statements to ACC.
Gibson misrepresented his physical condition over a number of years in order to continue receiving weekly compensation from ACC. His activities, including heavy lifting, were filmed by his neighbours.
Sue North, Business Manager Operations, said ACC will continue to investigate and prosecute fraud.
``Any sort of fraud against ACC is theft against every New Zealand levy-payer, and such actions will not be tolerated.
We will continue to investigate all allegations.’’
