INSURANCE FRAUD ALLEGATIONS LANDS THREE FLORIDA WORKERS IN JAIL

PhotobucketORANGE COUNTY, FLORIDA – Three employees of an Orange County, Florida health clinic were arrested for allegedly scamming payments of more than $54,000 from Direct General Insurance. The trio, employed by Bethel Health and Rehabilitation Center, concocted a scheme of an intentional motor vehicle accident whereby an SUV of future patients rammed another vehicle. The scammers paid all vehicle passengers for their participation in the accident. Investigators also found that patients had been unaware of the insurance fraud because their signatures has been forged for supposed doctor visits.
Investigators are not certain as to whether or not more arrests will occur in the case as the investigation is ongoing. Presently all three initially-named defendants are free on bond.
