Cosmetic crooks spur surgeons to nip and tuck payment practices
You might call it a new wrinkle on the old dine-and-dash.
Last month, a woman waltzed into a cosmetic dermatology center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., spent two-and-a-half hours getting $3,300 worth of Botox and dermal fillers, then told staff she needed to duck out to a nearby ATM.
It was the last they saw of her.
