Italian police cited another person for collecting 235,000 euros in disability benefits over the course of eight years by falsely claiming she was totally blind.

The woman, 66, was photographed walking through markets in a town near Turin, crossing the street and looking in store
windows without any help.

Before issuing the citation, undercover investigators asked the suspect to sign a receipt, which they said she signed
without putting on glasses.

To guarantee reimbursement, police sequestered six properties belonging to the woman plus all the money in her bank
account.

In one week last month police in different parts of Italy discovered three fake blind people who were claiming benefits they were not entitled to, including one caught driving a car.
