Ohio Man Nabbed in Workers’ Comp Scam

March 30, 2005

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced a Nashport man was found guilty of a felony charge of workers’ compensation fraud.

Ronald Dillon is scheduled to be sentenced on April 19 in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas. It is estimated that Dillon defrauded BWC of $18,987.48.

BWC’s special investigations unit (SIU) learned of possible fraud by Dillon through his former employer. The investigation reportedly confirmed Dillon was employed as a real estate agent for Woeste Real Estate while receiving workers’ comp benefits.

Dillon suffered injuries to his right shoulder in April 2001 while working for Martinsbird Enterprises Inc. BWC awarded Dillon temporary total disability benefits and living maintenance for his injuries.
