In December 1983, the New York Times reported that a man who posed as a medical doctor for a decade before being caught and convicted had received some commendations from the Army and had been hired by the National Institute of Health as a medial fellow. The native of Ghana had used at least three sets of fake credentials to carry out his deception. His odyssey of deceit came to an end when his mistakes in an operating room left a patient with irreparable brain damage, causing him to remain in a persistent vegetative state fore the rest of his life.
