When Deceiving Insurance Companies
Becomes a Federal Offense
Fraudulent insurance claims generally involves the deceit by a policyholder of an insurance provider, a state or federal governmental agency, or another insured party in order to wrongfully obtain money. Such deceit can range from providing false information on policy applications, to making false claims in order to receive benefits, to large-scale criminal schemes. Illegal activities on the part of insurance companies and employees can also be considered insurance fraud. When fraudulent activity that amounts to insurance fraud crosses state lines, this activity, pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 1033, is considered a federal crime. This serious crime, if convicted, can result in a sentence of well over a decade in federal prison and hefty fines. Beyond this, being convicted of an insurance fraud crime can seriously impact a person’s future professional life. If you have been accused, it is imperative you contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Federal criminal defense attorney Allen Sawyer is familiar not only with the California laws related to insurance fraud but is also well-versed in federal laws and federal procedures surrounding insurance fraud. The crime of insurance fraud can include deceptive practices by individuals (or insurance companies) among several areas, including but not limited to the following:
- Health Care Insurance Fraud
- Life Insurance Fraud
- Dental Insurance Fraud
- Disability Fraud
- Workers’ Compensation Fraud
- Property Insurance Fraud
- Unemployment Insurance Fraud
- And More
Since a considerable amount of insurance industry activity involves interstate operations, the potential for insurance fraud to escalate from state to federal crimes is high. Private investigations can lead to the reporting of suspected fraudulent activity to the federal government; oftentimes, people are unaware of being investigated for fraudulent insurance crimes. Immediately contacting a federal criminal defense lawyer experienced in handling insurance fraud cases upon discovering you are the target of an investigation is imperative for allowing your attorney ample time to prepare a robust, effective defense.
