Police probe sick-note scam

Staff Reporter

Pulling a sickie over the long weekend with a fake doctor's note has led to fraud charges being laid against a Kempton Park employee and the arrest of the man allegedly selling the notes. The scam was uncovered when a manager at car rental company Avis in Croydon decided to check all the sick notes presented by employees too ill to work on April 28 and 29.
