Lies lead to felony indictment

“The reportee in this case made several fictitious and misleading statements in support of an insurance claim for payment. Specifically stating that the vehicle was burglarized, in which numerous items were stolen from inside the vehicle by an unknown individual. Thanks to LeadsOnline, nearly one year later the reportee was identified selling items reported stolen to the police and insurance company. The transactions also revealed that the reportee inflated the initial loss value by claiming full retail value on items previously purchased at the businesses. The reportee subsequently faced felony indictment for insurance fraud.”
