    Henrietta
    Goldacre
    Ben Goldacre, a UK-based doctor and science journalist, wrote in 2004 of obtaining a diploma in nutrition from the American Association of Nutritional Consultants for his cat, Henrietta, while investigating allegations about the qualifications claimed by Gillian McKeith. Although the cat has passed away, Goldacre claims to have kept the certificate on display in a toilet.

    Many years ago I processed medical claims. One claimant submitted a claim for an office visit, radiology and lab services and prescription bills to be considered for payment for her cat! The cat had a common girl's name. When they were processed successfully, she began submitting claims for her other pets. HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHA!
    She eventually was caught, and had to reimburse the company. She was also terminated from her job for insurance fraud.
