BP mass tort fraud



As I've long warned, where there is a mass tort, there is mass tort fraud. Applications for Gulf of Mexico fishing licenses are up 60 percent. This is presumably not because of the economic incentive to fish in the Gulf of Mexico but rather because BP is asking for proof of a fishing license to pay claims for lost fishing income. A source tells the Daily Mail that 10% of the claims could be fraudulent; it's conceivably much more than that.
