White Collar Crime: Insurance Fraud
The Dangerous Nature of Federal Charges
Are you being investigated for insurance fraud? Like all other
white collar crimes, insurance fraud gets zealous investigation and federal law enforcement
because these crimes are usually very high profile cases. The media attention
that insurance fraud receives puts a lot of pressure on law makers and
prosecutors to set an example, and suspected offenders are the ones who
take the hit. This means that anyone accused of insurance fraud needs
to act quickly in order to protect their interests.

Insurance Fraud Heavily Punished in Colorado
Insurance fraud occurs when individuals or non-licensed entities sell bogus
or illegal insurance. This crime has been on the rise because more and
more consumers are looking for affordable insurance solutions during this
time of economic hardship. Fraud can also occur when an insurance agent
deceives the insurance company and the consumer by issuing a false certificate
of insurance. This alleged certificate of insurance may be priced at a
much lower cost and may appear more affordable. The most common types
of this insurance fraud relate to auto and commercial policies, and many
consumers are reporting unpaid claims. A third kind of insurance fraud
occurs when someone deceives an insurance company with the aim of collecting
money that they do not fully need.
Depending on the type of fraud that you are alleged to have committed,
you may be facing misdemeanor or felony charges. You might be facing very
large fines and even prison time if you get convicted for an insurance
fraud charge. The defense you choose makes a difference, and our team
