North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced that Keiyana Carson, 27, of 1827 Lookout Lane, Charlotte, was charged with insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretense, both felonies.
Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Carson of obtaining $1,000 from Geico in an automobile insurance policy claim by providing fraudulent medical invoices for chiropractic services from Body Care Chiropractor. According to the criminal summons, the business does not exist.
The offenses occurred between Jan. 12, 2021, and Jan. 21, 2022.
Carson was served with a criminal summons on July 11. She is due in Mecklenburg County District Court on Aug. 25.
“Property and casualty insurance fraud costs insurance customers an estimated $120 billion a year in increased premiums,” said Commissioner Causey. “The Department of Insurance has beefed up its fraud-fighting staff in an effort to make more arrests to keep fraud from driving up insurance costs.”
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.
