Fighting fraud

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - While some people are struggling to find work in this economy, a local private investigator says others are cheating the system.  This is a story Molly Grantham is working on tonight's 11 o'clock news.

A local investigator tells Grantham he's being hired more and more to look into workman comp cases.  He says he's finding some of the injuries aren't as bad as employees claim.

He has videotape, he says, of people who say they're on total disability... but his tape shows differently.

It's a cost that's passed on to you and me.
