Stupid Criminals: Woman Poses as a Doctor to Give Men Physicals
If this woman wanted to grab men’s packages, all she really had to do was ask.
According to The Smoking Gun, 56-year-old Joann Elizabeth Wingate of South Middleton Township, Pennsylvania was arrested over the weekend for posing as a doctor to give men physicals at her house.
Wingate was pretending to be a doctor from Philadelphia with the same last name, a psychiatrist named Barbara Wingate. She posted flyers in truck stops offering physicals to truckers that needed them for their licenses.
Police were notified when one of the truckers felt like the physical was a little off. Wingate picked him up from the truck stop in an old blue Ford Tempo, and took her to her house to perform the examination.
She charged him $65 and seemed very thorough, even taking a urine sample. But he just didn’t feel right about it and called the police.
They have two confirmed cases of Joann giving illegal physicals and think there could be dozens more victims. She is facing a lot of charges for felony forgery, fraud, and identity theft.
