Anson County woman charged with insurance fraud, attempting to obtain property by false pretense

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey announced today the arrest of Tammy Robbins Cox, 53, of 2073 Horne Town Road, Polkton, NC. Cox was charged with insurance fraud and attempting to obtain property by false pretense.

According to special agents with the NC Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division, Cox presented oral and written statements to Progressive Premier Insurance Company of Illinois to obtain additional coverage on a vehicle that had already been in an accident. 

According to the arrest warrant, the offense occurred on March 9.

Cox was released from custody under a $8,000 unsecured bond and ordered to appear in Anson County Court on May 28.

“Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime,” Commissioner Causey said. “Approximately 20 cents of every insurance premium dollar goes to covering the cost of fraud. I’m fighting this by aggressively pursuing and prosecuting insurance fraud in North Carolina.”

If you suspect insurance fraud or other white-collar crimes, please report it. You may anonymously report fraud by calling the N.C. Department of Insurance Criminal Investigations Division at 919-807-6840 or toll free from anywhere in North Carolina at 888-680-7684.
