Facebook fighting NYPDFishing for marlin. Teaching karate. Flying helicopters.

Such are the activities you should not participate in – or at least brag about on Facebook – when fraudulently collecting disability payments from the government.

But that’s exactly what at least 106 New York City police officers, firefighters, and other civil servants had been doing for years, according to Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who indicted the alleged fraudsters in January.

A main source of evidence in Mr. Vance’s case were the brazen photos the suspects placed on their Facebook profiles – as well as their private messages and other personal info typically unavailable to the public. When investigators obtained a search warrant for the information from the social media site last summer, the company fought back, arguing that the search was “unreasonable” under the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution.
