Pro tip: Don’t appear on nationally televised game shows if you are claiming workers comp. Words of wisdom one North Carolina woman wishes she had thought of long before being filmed spinning the big wheel on “The Price Is Right.” The former postal carrier, at the time, had been collecting workers compensation for an on-the-job shoulder injury that prevented her from being able to pick up mail trays.

UPI.com reports that Cathy Wrench Cashwell pled guilty to charges of fraud. Federal investigators allege Cashwell intentionally lied about her ability to stand, sit, kneel, squat, climb, bend, reach and grasp when she filled out workers comp paperwork in September of 2011. Her claim stems from an on-the-job shoulder injury she sustained in 2004.

An indictment filed late last year uncovered telling evidence that rendered her workers comp claim fraudulent. In addition to her 2009 appearance on “The Price Is Right,” investigators claim that she had gone ziplining with her husband on a cruise in 2010 as well as being witnessed lifting furniture and carry groceries in both arms in 2011.
