57-year-old Alexander Goldinsky laid there until he was found by one of his coworkers.
He was subcontracted to work at a business in Woodbridge, New Jersey when he decided to attempt to scam them out of some money.
Goldinsky decided to perform the act in the break room, throwing a piece of ice on the floor, waiting a beat for it to melt, and faking a slip and fall. The thing is, he didn't even attempt a proper fall! he gingerly made his way down to the ground and waited there until he was disdovered by a coworker.
Luckily, security cameras captured this scam in the act.
Goldinsky was arrested and charged with insurance fraud, and theft by deception. He's due in court next Thursday.
