Georgia Man Charged with Fraud After Allegedly Lying About Contracting The Coronavirus

An Atlanta man is now facing charges after prosecutors say, he lied about contracting COVID-19 as an excuse to get out of work.

Santwon Antonio Davis, 34, allegedly left work back in March after claiming his mother had been exposed to the virus. The feds say he then submitted a falsified medical excuse letter to his Fortune 500 company—and that’s where things went left. There were no test results included in the document, and it didn’t even specify what he had been treated for or diagnosed with. Prosecutors say this is how they knew the letter was fake.

Davis has now admitted that he never contracted the virus, but not before his company shelled out $100K to sanitize his entire workplace and quarantine other employees. According to CBS News, Davis was arrested and charged for defrauding his employer. He had his first court appearance Thursday and is now out on bond.
