Turning to outrageous stories of fraud. People who claim they had injuries collecting workers compensation. Living high until they got caught. Cathy Caswell, come on down. Reporter: A fortune in cash and prices isn't the only thing Ka Cathy collected. She was claiming an on-the-job shoulder injury made her unable to stand, run, reach or grasp. Good luck. Reporter: But there she is, spinning that big, heavy wheel. Not once, but twice. Caswell is one of the countless people accused of faking an injury to collect on disability payments. Experts estimate bogus claims cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. And questionable claims, up 24%. People like Valerie, a bus driver who claimed a severe shoulder injury prevented her from getting behind the wheel. Investigators caught her on camera, behind the drums.

Reporter: For "Good morning America," Cecilia Vega, ABC news, Los Angeles.
