Prick and run? Botox bandits rip off wrinkle shots

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.

Poor thing. She would have been a lot prettier if she had just washed her face and combed her hair.
