(Scroll down for video) A star of the popular television show The Real Housewives of New Jersey” was charged with bank fraud, according to police reports in New Jersey.

Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, were accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before her television debut in 2009, and then hiding income while filing for bankruptcy after the first season aired.

The couple, who live in Montville Township, New Jersey, were charged in an indictment with 39 counts of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. Each defendant faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of all charges.

"Everyone has the obligation to tell the truth when it comes to the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages," U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said. "That's the reality," he added.

Teresa Giudice, one of the five housewives, whose lifestyles and lavish rude behavior are chronicled in a TV series now in its fifth season, issued a statement through her lawyer shortly after the charges were filed.

"Today is a difficult day for our family," she said. "I support Joe and as a wonderful husband and a father, I know he only wanted the best for our lovely daughters and me. I’m committed to my family and I have the intention to maintain life in the best way possible, including continue my career. As a result, I have the hope that we will resolve this matter with the Government as soon as possible.”

According to the indictment, the couple filed fraudulent mortgages and other loan applications from 2001 to 2008, a year before the show made its debut on Bravo.

"Today's indictment alleges that the Giudices lied to the bankruptcy court, the IRS and to a number of banks," Fishman said.
Joe Giudice did not file tax returns for the years 2004 through 2008, when he reportedly earned nearly $1 million.
When his wife filed a mortgage application in 2001, she falsely claimed she worked as an executive assistant, submitted false W-2 forms and pay stubs, as part of the scheme, prosecutors said.

Christian leader warns: God will punish the U.S. for pressuring Israel to divide Jerusalem

(Scroll down for video) A popular Christian leader has warned the U.S. to stay out of the Israeli and Palestinian peace talks or face the full wrath of God, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Pat Robertson told his followers on Tuesday that he believes God will punish the United States with Natural disasters if it continues to push for an agreement on the peace talks in the Middle East.

"Whenever the United States is involved in some kind of pressure on Israel to divide their land, there is a natural disaster that happens here in the United States," Robertson said.

"If the United States pressures Israel to try to give up half of Jerusalem, God Himself will come against this nation. Be careful," he said.

In April, Robertson discussed the efforts of the Secretary of State John Kerry in Israel and Palestine, and made a similar warning against territorial concessions to the Palestinians.

"For the United States to reach an agreement in which they are trying to divide Jerusalem and take it from the Israelis, big mistake," he said several months ago. "You are asking Almighty God's wrath to fall on this nation. When it falls, it will not be fun," he added.

(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest and charge a man with armed robbery related charges after stealing $136 million in jewelry from an Israeli billionaire, according to police reports in France.

Police in France said that the jewelry was stolen from a luxury hotel in Cannes on Sunday by one-armed man with an automatic pistol. The theft is the largest ever theft in France.

A man entered the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel on the beach of the French Riviera resort through a terrace and a side window, which was supposedly locked, and stole 34 pieces of jewelry before fleeing, Philippe Vique, the deputy prosecutor of the nearby town of Grasse, and has authority over Cannes, said.

The heist stirred memories of Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 movie "To Catch a Thief" starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, in which expensive jewels disappeared from the same luxury hotel, which also appeared in many other movies.

The jewels stolen Sunday were part of an exhibition of works from the prestigious house of Leviev diamonds, owned by Russian-born Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev, who confirmed the robbery. Leviev employees based in London said the company is working with the police and insurance companies. The company refused to confirm the value of the stolen jewels.

Vique said the theft surpasses the previous French record of over $106 million, in a robbery carried out by several men in Paris in 2008.

Israel accuses Turkish Airlines of tax fraud

The feud between former allies Turkey and Israel seems to be widening.

The Israeli office of Turkish Airlines is being investigated for alleged tax evasion amounting to over 1.5 million shekels, a statement from the Ministry of Justice said Monday.

According to the statement, the Tel Aviv District Tax Office and the Department of Finance is considering filing criminal charges against the company as well as the head of the local office, Fatih Dogan, for not complying with the guidelines of the Tax Administration of Israel for foreign companies operating in Israel.

Turkish Airlines is considered one of the leading international players in the world, and was ranked seventh best airline in the world in 2012. It was also ranked the world's fastest growing airline in 2011. Dozens of Turkish citizens work in the Israeli office, whose wages are subject to the tax laws of both Turkey and Israel.

The Tel Aviv District Attorney’s office suspects that between 2006 and 2010 the airline filed false tax returns in Israel, and that wages paid to employees, which were deposited in their bank accounts in Istanbul, were higher than declared wages for tax purposes.

This method allowed the Israeli office to pay employees "under the table" and avoid the deduction of taxes that should have been paid to the Israeli tax authority.

Turkish Airlines denies all the allegations.

The number of Palestinians being treated in Israeli hospitals increased sharply, according to a report by the Tazpit News Agency.

A report published by The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit (COGAT) shows that 219,464 Palestinian patients received medical treatment in Israeli hospitals during 2012, 21,270 of them children. These numbers include the companions accompanying the patients in Israel.

These numbers constitutes a dramatic increase in Palestinians receiving treatment by Israelis medical professionals. 197,713 Palestinians received medical treatment in Israel in 2011, and in 2008 144,838 were cared for in Israel.

COGAT, a military unit which is responsible for implementing the Israeli Government's policy in Judea and Samaria, stated that: "The Civil Administration, through its health department (HDCA), works closely with the Palestinian Ministry of Health to support the medical needs of the Palestinian population throughout Judea and Samaria." The HDCA manages all issues relating to Israeli-Palestinian healthcare coordination, primarily the transfer of Palestinian patients to hospitals in Israel.

The HDCA further works to enable professional medical training for Palestinians by Israel through the encouragement of medical conferences and the training of Palestinian medical staff in Israeli hospitals. Training sessions take place several times a year, initiated by both the HDCA and the Palestinian Authority. In 2012, the Civil Administration paid 2 million NIS to send Palestinian doctors, nurses, and paramedics for training in Israel. The Civil Administration has also set aside a budget to finance critical medical procedures for patients who are not covered by Palestinian or UNRWA health insurance and are not able to pay privately.

Tazpit's Anav Silverman reported last year that Suhila Abd el-Salam, the sister of Hamas Prime Minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyah, accompanied her husband for treatment in Israel. Her husband was admitted to Beilinson Hospital, in Petach Tikva, for immediate medical treatment following a serious heart condition. Because Gaza hospitals could not properly treat the condition Haniyah’s sister and her husband requested permission to travel to Israel to receive the necessary medical treatment. This was not the only time that a Gaza resident was treated in Israel. This past March, a 15-year-old Palestinian boy was transported to the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot after suffering from severe burns and shrapnel injuries from an alleged rocket launching pad that was set up in Jabalya, a neighborhood in northern Gaza.

The Palestinian Minister of Health, Dr. Hanni Abadin, visited Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem at the beginning of this past May. This visit was a first of its kind. Dr. Yuval Weiss, director of the hospital, reported that at any given moment there are some 60 Palestinian medical personnel in training at the hospital. Dr. Abadin thanked Hadassah for the opportunity to visit and for its services, visited Palestinian children hospitalized at Hadassah and gave them gifts.

The Civil Administration Health Department declared that it will continue in 2013 to cooperate closely with their Palestinian counterparts and international organizations in Judea and Samaria to advance healthcare for the benefit of all residents in the region.

Man tricked into reporting own child pornography offenses through 'FBI Warning' computer virus

Jay Riley 
By: Debbi Gross

(Scroll down for video) A man received a message on his computer, which appeared to be from the FBI warning him to pay a fine or face jail.

Jay Riley, 21, of Woodmark, Virginia, went to his local precinct with his computer and asked if there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

He explained that a message appeared on his screen while he was watching child pornography, ordering him to pay a fine. It also warned him that he would be subject to a criminal investigation.

The message was actually a computer virus that has been infecting computers since early last year. On their website, the FBI actually talks about this type of computer virus.

When police officers searched Riley's computer they found inappropriate messages and photos of underage girls, one of which was a 13-year-old girl from Minnesota. Later, they seized several computers and other devices from his home.

Riley was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography and using a communication device to solicit children among other charges. He is being held without bond.

The virus, which affected Riley’s computer, is known as ‘Reveton ransomware’. It is designed to extort money from people after they visit compromised websites.

According to the FBI website, this virus can install itself when users click on a compromised website. Once infected, the victim’s computer immediately locks, and the monitor displays a screen stating there has been a violation of federal law.

The message says that the user's Internet address was identified by the FBI for being associated with child pornography sites or other illegal online activities.

To unlock their computers, users are required to pay a $200 fine using a prepaid money card. Otherwise, the warning states, they will be subject to an investigation.
The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), suggests to do the following if you become a victim of the Reveton virus:

Do not pay any money or provide any personal information.
Contact a computer professional to remove Reveton and Citadel from your computer.
Be aware, that even if you are able to unfreeze your computer on your own, the malware may still operate in the background. Certain types of malware have been known to capture personal information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers through embedded keystroke logging programs.

(Scroll down for video) Police are cracking down on people who steal and sell men’s private parts.

Police have arrested three men and one woman in Malawi's capital Lilongwe, after they were found with human male private parts.
Two of the people arrested were employees of a morgue.

Police identified the suspects as Sebita Mwale, 27, her fiance Erick Mwandira, 34, mortuary supervisor Lufeyo Mphimbi, 54, and his assistant Samalani Jabu, 58. According to police, Mwandira approached the mortuary supervisor at his work, and they agreed to divide the profits of the sale. Mwandira tried to sell private parts to a businesswoman for about $1,500.

Many locals believe that human body parts can bring wealth. Business people and healers pay a lot of money for men’s private parts. Sadly, some poor people looking for money kill and mutilate innocent men for their bodies parts.

Recently, police in the central district of Salima Lakeshore in Malawi, responded to a report of a man lying bleeding and unconscious near railroad tracks. The 45-year-old Malawian man was hospitalized. When he was admitted to the hospital, doctors were shocked to discover that his genitalia was missing.

Salima Police Chief Foster Mangani said that hours after the incident, police were called to a local motel where the owner reported that a guest had tried to sell her a man’s private part for $360.
Police have identified the suspect as Samuel Banda, whose picture was published next to a man’s severed private part on white paper.

Police said that Banda had admitted selling "many body parts to well-known business personalities".
According to reports, the victim was approached by Banda while he was walking home after a drinking spree. His condition is described as "serious" by the local hospital.

When she finally recovered from the second set of attacks, she managed to flee to her car. But O'Neill chased her and zapped her again with the stun gun before fleeing the scene.

Ironically, police who arrived at the house, found O'Neill’s wallet, which contained a metal pipe with burned marijuana residue inside.

They also discovered that O'Neill was on parole for a recent drug violation.
He was charged with domestic assault, armed criminal action, property damage and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $35,000.

(Scroll down for video) After she divorced her husband, a woman tried to return over one million dollars in valuable items to Neiman Marcus.

The woman tried to return $1.4 million in goods, which she received from her former husband while they were married.

After the company refused to give her a refund for the items, the woman filed a lawsuit against Neiman Marcus.

Patricia Walker, who lives in University Park, Texas, wanted to return the gifts after learning that her former husband, Robert Tennison, had been having an affair with her Neiman Marcus personal shopper, Favi Lo, who received a large commission on the purchases.

The store claimed that they had no obligation to accept the goods calling her suit "nothing more than the ventings of a scorned woman."
Walker received the collection of jewelry, clothing, accessories and artwork during the three years she had been recovering from a serious car accident.

During a hearing, Neiman's attorney, Walter Herring, told the judge that there was no written policy regarding in-store and catalog returns, saying that the decision is being made at individual stores at the manager's discretion.
The lawsuit has now reportedly been settled, but court documents related to the case have been sealed.

(Scroll down for video) A man was shot by police on his own property after police thought he broke into his mother’s car.

It was about 2:45 am on Saturday when the man went outside to his mother’s car to get a cigarette.

Roy Middleton, 60, was in his own driveway in Warrington, Florida, when a neighbor saw him searching his mother's car and called police.

Officers of the Escambia County Sheriff’s department came to the scene where they witnessed Middleton leaning into the car. The officers ordered him to get away from the car and put his hands where they can see them.

Middleton said that at first he thought it was a neighbor joking with him, until he turned his head and saw the deputies.
Middleton gradually walked away from the vehicle with his hands in the air, but claims that the police opened fire as soon as he turned around.

"It was like a firing squad, bullets were flying everywhere," Middleton said.
The deputies, Jeremiah Meeks and Matthew White, were placed on paid administrative leave while the Florida Police Department is investigating the shooting.

Middleton was shot in the leg. He is grateful that they did not shoot him in his head or chest. "My mother's car is full of bullet holes, we had to get a rental," Middleton said.
A teenager, who witnessed the incident, said Middleton never provoked the deputies. "He was not aggressive or anything," he said.

Middleton does not understand why he was shot. "Even if they thought the car was stolen, all they had to do was run the license plate and they would have seen that the car belonged there," Middleton said.
The man is in the hospital recovering from the gunshot wound.

By: Shifra Unger

McDonald’s is being criticized after an employee prohibited an old woman, who gets around with a mobility scooter from entering the drive-thru.

After the public outcry, a British McDonald’s branch has apologized to the woman, who was told not to use the drive-thru window while riding on her scooter.

The McDonald's restaurant in Bedhampton, England, apologized after Kate Legg, 76, said they did not allow her to use the drive-thru while she was riding her scooter despite the fact that it is registered to travel on roads.

Legg said she gave her order at the drive-thru, but was told that she would not be allowed to use the lane again due to "health and safety".

"I told the employee that health and safety was implemented to protect people working in the mines and doing dangerous things, not to prevent children from playing or to prevent old ladies from purchasing a smoothie at a drive-thru," Legg said.

"Health and safety is used for all kinds of stupid reasons and it makes me very angry," she said.
A McDonald's spokesperson said that only small mobility scooters, which are not allowed on the roads, are banned from the drive-thru lanes.

"The health and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and for this reason we cannot serve pedestrians, cyclists and mobility scooters through our drive-thru lanes," the spokesperson said. "We however can serve customers on mobility scooters that are allowed to drive on the road, but unfortunately, in this case, the staff did not recognize the scooter as such. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused," the spokesperson also said.

A camp showed their zero love tolerance policy by kicking out a teen girl after she was kissed by a boy, according to a new lawsuit filed in court.

The parents of a 15-year-old Connecticut girl are suing a summer camp in Massachusetts, saying that their daughter was sent home after being kissed by a boy.

The lawsuit states that the girl was sent home from Camp Emerson located in Hinsdale, Massachusetts, last month after she was falsely accused by camp officials of sexually provocative behavior.
The lawsuit does not name the girl.

The father of the girl, Manhattan lawyer Jeff Miller, said that what the camp did is an outrage.

Rosemarie Arnold, the family attorney, who filed the suit on her client's behalf, appeared Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court. The lawsuit seeks more than $600,000 in damages, alleging negligent infliction of emotional distress, defamation and other claims.

Man covers his entire home using 50,000 beer cans

House covered in beer cans 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A home is now recognized as a landmark after it was covered with fifty thousand beer cans.

As a child, who grew up during the Great Depression, John Milkovisch did not throw away anything, not even empty beer cans he enjoyed each evening with his wife.

Thus, in the early 1970s, when aluminum siding on houses was all the rage, he crawled through the cans, which he stored in his attic for years, carefully cut open and flattened each one, and started covering his home with them.

"The funny thing is that he didn’t do it to get attention," Ruben Guevara, head of the restoration and conservation of the Beer Can House in the Houston Memorial Park area, said. "He said to himself that if there was a similar house one block away, he won’t take the time to go and look. He had no idea what the fascination was all about," he said.

Milkovisch died in the around 1985, but his wife, Mary, still lives there. Her children, from time to time, replace rusted steel cans with new ones.

Determined to preserve this piece of accidental folk art, a local nonprofit, Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, purchased the property about 10 years ago, and began a careful restoration of the house. They also opened it to the public.

"He drank a lot of beer, he and Mary, and he gathered all the cans of beer they were drinking. He saved them because he knew he would use them, but he did not exactly how," Guevara said.

Milkovisch used about 50,000 cans, which he collected by drinking a few beers a day in the span of 20 years. For 17 months, working from the bottom up, Milkovisch covered his house with cans of Budweiser, Texas Pride, Shiner, and any brand that was on sale.

(Scroll down for video) Thieves have managed to steal the air conditioner of a Michigan mayor, twice in recent months, according to police reports.

The mayor of a struggling Michigan city said the cuts in the police department is partly to blame for the theft of his air conditioning unit.

Darcel Brown, mayor of Ecorse, a city of 10,000 people 15 miles south of Detroit, said he woke up to a knocking sound on Sunday night and went to the window, where he saw his central air conditioning unit loaded into a van. Brown called the police and they arrived quickly, he said.

The mayor joined the officers in his own vehicle to search for the suspects. The truck was located in an alley, but no arrests were made. The air conditioning unit was temporarily seized as evidence in the case.
Brown also had his air conditioning unit stolen in January.

Ecorse, under the control of an emergency manager, has seen significant cuts in public services, including the police force of the city. Brown said the thieves brazenly stole the air conditioner of the mayor because of the cuts.

"Before our money problems, we would have four or five police officers on the streets at night, but now we only have two plus one on desk duty in a city of 10,000," he said. "We're telling the emergency manager and the state that we need help."

(Scroll down for video) A Florida police sergeant has resigned after she was caught posting nude pictures of herself on the internet, according to police reports in Daytona Beach.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said that Sergeant Penny Dane, an 18-year veteran of the police force, resigned after admitting to having used a service to post sexually explicit images of herself online as part of a game called "Red Light Center", which is designed to resemble a virtual sex club.

"In my 26 years in law enforcement I've never seen this," Chitwood said.
Investigators said Dane turned off her GPS tracking device on her patrol car to access the game while she was supposed to be supervising other employees.

Police said she uploaded 177 sexually explicit images on her office desktop computer, 97 images were found on the laptop in her patrol car and at least 23 of the images were of her.

Chitwood said the photos were "extremely pornographic in nature, and in several of the photos we've discovered, she was in his uniform."

Police said that her activities were discovered when she accused another officer of sexual harassment and investigators looked over her emails.

(Scroll down for video) A drunk teacher attempted to wiggle herself out of a hit and run arrest by offering a police officer oral sex, according to police reports in Florida.

Palm Beach County Police said that middle school math teacher Mary Maloney allegedly offered oral sex to a police officer after being captured for a hit-and-run.

Maloney, 53, was arrested Sunday after her truck crashed into a pickup truck around 8:35 pm. After crashing her truck she fled from the scene. A witness of the crash tracked down Maloney’s car to a parking spot and called police.

The arresting officer said he found an empty wine bottle behind the driver's seat and "immediately smelled the strong odor of alcoholic on Maloney.” The report noted that her eyes were glassy, bloodshot and partially closed.

The officer, who took Maloney to the police station, said that she asked him: "How much do I have to pay for you to let me go? Don’t you understand that I am a school teacher?"

Then, she offered to perform oral sex on him and allow him to fondle her breasts.
Maloney was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident with damage, resisting arrest without violence, driving with a suspended license and attempting to bribe a public official.

A spokesperson for the school district of Palm Beach County said that the teacher could potentially be suspended or fired, depending on her case.

Maloney was convicted of a DUI in 2009, and was arrested on a battery charge, and later on a charge of violation of parole, in 2010.

Teens set police station on fire so they can visit their friend in jail

Canadian police car on fire 
By: John Roberts

Two teens were arrested and charged with arson related charges after they set a police station on fire, according to police reports in Canada.

St. Theresa Point Police said that two teenagers in a remote Manitoba, Canada community set fire to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police station in a plan to be arrested and taken to a juvenile jail in Winnipeg so they could visit their friend, who is also facing arson charges.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers said that a gang of young people have been going on crime sprees on Sunday, dubbing the ritual "Bad Ass Sunday.”

The boys, 13 and 14-years-old, were arrested after what is known locally as the justice building caught fire and was destroyed in the early morning.

The boys allegedly picked the lock of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police station with a clip and then used a lighter to set paper on fire.

The younger child, who had no history or other pending charges, admitted the fire was an attempt to leave the community and the Youth Centre of Manitoba.

Prosecutor Courtney St. Croix argued against bail for the younger teen, saying: "Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the area are particularly concerned that a group of young people seem to have established some kind of a gang."

"If they were willing to set fire to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police station in order to hang out with their friend, I'm worried about what else they will be willing to do to get back to jail," St. Croix said.

Judge Rocky Pollack, legally bound by the Youth Criminal Justice Act, gave the boy his freedom.

A Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesperson could not provide a complete damage estimate, but said the damage to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police building totaled about $20,000.

The friend of the two teens is already in jail for his alleged involvement in burning a Royal Canadian Mounted Police truck, supposedly as part of Bad Ass Sunday.

Girl, 10, catches baby from burning building

(Scroll down for video) A baby is lucky to be alive after a little girl caught her after she was thrown from a burning house, according to emergency workers in Georgia.

Zna Gresham, 10, does not see herself as a hero, but in the eyes of others she is definitely a hero after saving the baby thrown from the burning apartment.

Gresham caught the baby, who was thrown from the second floor of her apartment complex in Decatur, after the building caught fire.
The family, who lives on the second floor of the building, was trapped by the fire, which had started on the first floor. Christopher Morrison, the Fire Chief of Dekalb County Fire, said the mother had no choice but to throw her three children out the window to their safety.

Morrison said: "The smoke quickly travelled to the upper floors. They could not make their way out of their apartment with all the smoke. They just went to a window and the mother threw the children out to people, neighbors, on the ground below."

As Gresham and her sister were standing outside the building, Gresham happened to see the 1 month old baby falling from the second floor window. She managed to catch the baby before he hit the ground, however, the other two children were not so fortunate as the baby. They suffered minor injuries, but they are doing well. However, the whole family was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Although Gresham was the one who saved the baby, she is giving credit to her family for saving the family, while the apartment building was burning.
