May 24 - An Army vet bodybuilder scammed the VA for $245k by stating he couldn’t even lift
 

 
Prosecutors said a Florida veteran who used a cane and wore an adult diaper to his VA visits was actually a gym rat grifter who lied about being in battle and took years of disability benefits from taxpayers.

Zachary Barton, 36, admitted to lying on a mental health test by falsely stating to the VA that he had served in combat, so disqualifying him from receiving Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder benefits. Barton also said he couldn’t lift more than 10 to 20 pounds or walk without the use of a cane. Based on these lies, the VA determined that Barton was completely incapacitated. Barton used to do heavy weights on a regular basis, including 650-pound leg presses and 300-pound chest presses. He drove, walked his dog, and went shopping with ease.

Barton got roughly $245,286 in VA benefits that he was not entitled to as a result of his misrepresentations. Judge Aileen M. Cannon will sentence the defendant on August 11, 2022, in Fort Pierce.

Barton filed a VA claim in Florida in 2012 for anxiety disorder and Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare illness in which the immune system destroys nerve cells, potentially resulting in paralysis and death.

There’s no denying that Barton has the illness. The question is whether he should have told VA that his symptoms were improving, even if the underlying disease was not likely to improve.

The VA initially gave Barton a 30 percent disability rating after a series of appointments. After Barton indicated his problems were becoming worse and he couldn’t work, that number jumped to 70% in 2017. He also complained to the VA about memory loss, shoulder and arm pain, and insomnia.

I checked the whole article. Somebody snitched on dude and then he did himself in with social media. Posted on Facebook and then bragged about using steroids in a blog.

----------

However, in 2019, VA officials obtained information that Barton was a competitive weightlifter, prompting agents from the VA’s Office of Inspector General to look into his disability claims. Barton’s father said his son should have ignored retired soldiers’ pleas for higher compensation, which prompted the investigation.

Agents discovered images of Barton competing in a bodybuilding competition on Facebook in mid-2019. Other social media posts showed him lifting weights weighing more than 400 pounds. He wrote a blog under the name “Zach Ryan” on the website “Enhanced Gym Addicts,” where he talked about his exercises and recommended medications like Tamoxifen, Clomid, and T3 as part of his bodybuilding program.
