Insurance cheater ‘who couldn’t exercise after car accident’ surprised by photos of herself after climbing Sydney Harbor Bridge

AN INSURANCE cheater who claimed a car accident left her unable to exercise has been caught posting photos after climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge.

Insurance Lois Cartridge, 24, even completed a 5k obstacle course the same day she was examined by a doctor.

She suffered minor soft tissue injuries as a rear passenger in a road accident in November 2018.

But she exaggerated her symptoms to bolster her claim for compensation – claiming ‘restricted movement’ prevented her from cleaning, cooking, driving or swimming.

Alarm bells rang when Liverpool Victoria, the other motorist’s insurer, scoured his social media.

He found an article about her shopping and at a dinner party the day after the prang, and she posted photos of her swimming with dolphins a month later.

Paul Higgins, for LV, told Judge Richard Pearce: “On June 1, 2019, including the same day she was medically examined, she posted an update that read, ‘Soo…we’ve completed the inflatable run of 5 miles this morning.

“On June 16, she posted an update on Bridge Climb Sydney saying ‘Time to climb the bridge’ and was tagged in another saying ‘Cool night doing the Sydney Bridge climbing’.”

Bournemouth Cartridge, admitted to exaggerating his symptoms.

She was given a suspended 16-week prison sentence and ordered to pay £20,000 court costs for contempt of court at the High Court in London.

Judge Pearce said: ‘It’s an exaggeration, not an invention.

“I was impressed by her apology in court and take into account that this discovery will have serious financial consequences for her.”
