Beware of Fake Doctor Excuses
|Post by Stan Lacy|
One of the advantages to having a former police officer and private investigator as a paralegal in your office is you learn tidbits of very useful information you would not look up yourself. Example: Larry Nelson in our office told us about a website that sells false doctors’ excuses. What?!? Fake doctors’ excuses?!? This is information we need to share with our readers! Especially employers, investigators and adjusters!
The website is http://www.alibinetwork.com/printabledoctorsexcuses.jsp#signup and it is part of the Alibi Network. For a mere $75 per year, a person can receive unlimited printable doctor’s excuses for being absent, such as a doctor’s note or out of work letter. For an additional charge, the person can get a virtual doctor’s office with phone number and fax. That means that if the employer calls to confirm the excuse, they get an extension to a doctor or nurse. Talk about sophisticated operations! Does practicing medicine without a license sound familiar???
Most employees are honest and present legitimate excuses. Only a few would go to the trouble of paying $75 to a website for a single excuse, so this website isn’t for the occasional offender. However, if the employee is chronically out, needs multiple excuses, or is providing excuses to others, this is a useful site. Every employer and carrier needs to be aware of it.
