Sheyla Veronica White

A South Florida woman was convicted of committing workman compensation fraud by hitting herself with a sprinkler head that fell from the ceiling and landed on her desk.

Sheyla Veronica White was an employee at Cinque Terre Energy Partners when she claimed she was injured by a falling sprinkler head on Oct. 1, 2015.

Surveillance video footage shows White pick up the sprinkler head, examine it, then look around to see if anyone was watching.

White then hit herself in the forehead with the sprinkler. She told a co-worker the sprinkler fell from the ceiling, bounced off her desk and hit her in the forehead.

Her employer, Cinque Terre Energy Partners, LLC, filed a workman’s compensation claim.

But the firm’s insurance company was suspicious of the claim and referred the case to the Division of Investigative and Forensic Services to investigate.

DIFS detectives requested surveillance video from Cinque Terre’s security cameras, which revealed White’s deception.

She was arrested on Aug. 5, 2016 and faced 5 years in prison.

White was subsequently convicted of fraud and sentenced to 18 months’ probation.

It wasn’t the first time White was convicted of committing fraud.

She was also arrested in 2010 and charged with stealing a students’ ID information while working as a teacher in Coconut Creek, WPTV reported.

In 2016, former President Obama ordered federal agencies to stop asking job applicants about prior criminal histories. The law made it harder for potential employers to deny employment to criminal-minded job applicants.

    She probably didn’t see those cameras.

  • GuestSTAR

    Dayum she is dumb. She worked for the company and didn’t know she was up under a camera. Now she focked, cause nobody’s gonna hire her.

  • Lolalao

    She sits there everyday ? She’s definitely getting the donkey of the day.

    I give her credit for coming up with a scheme so quickly, but like with most dishonest people, she didn’t think it all the way through?.

  • Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Well I guess she can fake it until she makes it from prison.

    She got her feet up, plotting the next lick. Probation? Honestly. Truly. Get out of her caucasian home.

  • Ruby Taylor

    Looking around instead of looking up for a camera. She could’ve cut a looking azz co-worker a piece of the pie.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So, did she not know there are cameras in her work place?

  • Ms. Cree

    LOL!!!!!! Dumb Dummy!!

  • bhavana

    All businesses have cameras these days. Even if you can’t see them, they are there. She’s an idiot for thinking she could get away with that.

    I guess she doesn’t understand basic physics and gravity and such. An object falling will lose speed once it intercepts (a. desk) and then (b. her forehead). Dummy.

    F’in idiot. And this ain’t gone be the last time she plots/schemes.

  • Ryan

    Why didn’t the company check their own surveillance footage BEFORE entertaining this mess?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Yep…., had she said it just fell and hit her head it would have been better. In her mind she didn’t want to be obvious so she added a detail to detract which attracted attention. I worked in insurance claims in my twenties and saw all types of nonsense .
    Like the man who he ankle surgery and could work. He couldn’t work because he couldn’t walk around the machine he was in charge of running . They took him out of work . Someone reported that he was playing pick-up basketball . Investigators watched him , took pics , reported their findings and fired him. He lost his benefits, 50,000 a year job pension all that. The union fought for him bought he lost.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Only safe place is the bathroom ( I hope ) ???.

  • SandraRose

    I agree. She messed up when she said it hit the desk and “bounced”.

  • dontgetblocked

    Obama was just… he was just awful. It’s going to take years to fix his mess. The worst president in modern day history.

  • Rahab

    Where were you understand Bush Jr?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    It’s called doing too much . Like Saline injections and lip shots ( allegedly ) . Maybe it’s for the experience , I was swollen everywhere though including my face and feet but you have me scratching my head. ?

  • Samantha G.

    LMAO I laughed so hard at this write up. Why was a sprinkler falling from the ceiling anyway? That’s an unsafe environment. She should have built a case from the truth. But hey, she tried

  • Tlowe89

    Lmao she tried it.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Her game is all the way off. Then the sprinkler n a whole different area if anything she should have said it hit the computer which the computer then fell on her lmbo

    white women like this go great with dusty black men

  • Yetunde

    She seems mentally disturbed.



  • Faux Gibbler

    Ok. Who thinks of something like this? Seriously. You at work and something falls FROM the ceiling then you pick up it hit yourself with it and then file for comp?

  • ArDnAhC45

    Classic…I guess they don’t know his name was Skillet. I watch all of those over and over again.

  • Dee

    Her dumb ass should have known they had surveillance at that company SMDH.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Same happened with my aunties ex…. Ninja got hurt off the job, went to work “got hurt”, immediately they tested him for drugs/alcohol and found drugs in his system, got fired for use of drugs, no claim no job end of story. SMH

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Working on how not to get caught next time.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They test bus drivers or anyone using heavy machinery too . It’s in the small print . They do not or will not want to pay benefits if they think the worker could be liable .

  • mela.reign77

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around her hitting herself in the head. I’m guessing she was going to eventually try and file a lawsuit. I bet her bat crazy behind is somewhere now thinking of another stupid idea. KMSL! In the words of the late Redd Foxx…. ” Sheyla, you big DUMMY!”

  • SpiceGirl

    she gets the BIG dummy of the day award! doo-doo
