    Man poses as mother for two years to get pension

    A Turkish man managed to get the pension of his mother for two years after her death, posing as an elderly woman to the local bank and neighbours.

    Disguised in his mother's coat, with a headscarf on his head and large glasses over his nose, 47-year-old Serafettin Gencel got caught only after he forgot to change his voice in response to a question by a bank clerk in his latest attempt to withdraw his mother's pension.

    He used to take walks in the neighborhood disguised as his mother so that her absence did not draw attention.

    Kind of reminds you of the 1960 movie "Psycho", with Janet Leigh in the shower scene.
