A Montana man was sentenced to 15 months in prison for his participation in an elaborate insurance fraud scheme. The defendant conspired to claim over $155,000 in insurance claims from Mountain West Bureau Mutual Insurance Company.
Fraud expert, Linda Webb, The Fraud Dog, says that a lot of people are talked into “opportunistic fraud”, thinking it is an easy opportunity to obtain money through filing a fraudulent insurance claim.
Buster, The Fraud Fighting Dog, and Linda’s side-kick, warns everyone: don’t let another fraudster offer to “throw you a bone”, because it just might be a trick that gets you in jail.
Filing inflated insurance claims, staging accidents, and even “cooking your house” by watering your house down for a mold claim in hot weather, are all easy to spot. The Fraud Dog’s team will be watching. There is “zero tolerance” for even the one-time opportunistic fraudster, so don’t let anyone talk you into it.
