Pennsylvania announced the arrest of a daughter and mother from Jefferson County charged with defrauding the Victims Compensation Assistance Program, a state program created to provide financial assistance to crime victims. The arrests of Monica Greene, 26, and Melissa L. Greene-Balbo, 46, are the result of an investigation by the Office of Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigations. According to investigators, Greene was physically assaulted and subsequently received $3,792 for moving expenses and lost wages that she was not entitled to by submitting false documentation to VCAP. Greene-Balbo, Greene’s mother, is accused of conspiring with her daughter to carry out the fraud, in part by providing false documentation, according to investigators. PA
