52-year-old Belinda Gail Fondren who previously worked for a local physician decided to forge the signature of her former employer and use the fake doctor notes for students to easily skip school, all done in exchange for $20.
We all have acted sick to skip classes at least once in our childhood, be it in front of our parents or our teachers. This Louisiana woman took the act way too seriously and has been providing students with fake doctor notes for $20 that will help them to get off from classes the 'official' way.
As reported, students looking to get out of class would make their way over to the house of 52-year-old Belinda Gail Fondren. Fondren had previously worked for a local physician and was forging doctor’s notes that appeared authentic. Fondren reportedly sold 14 of the $20 doctor’s notes – which comes out to $280 – before police discovered her.
Fondren's foul scheme was going all too well until the doctor who's signature she was forging started receiving complaints. Fondren's former employer started receiving calls from local Vernon Parish School Board inquiring about the sudden spike in kids calling out sick.
The confused doctor told the School that he has never issued the excuse absences nor he has treated the students.
The whole scenario then led to Fondren's arrest charged with filing or maintaining false public records.
