Forsyth County man charged with insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretense

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey announced today the arrest of Voderick Delain Springs Jr., 30, of 1914 E. Third Street, Winston-Salem, NC. Springs Jr.  is charged with one count of insurance fraud and one count of obtaining property by false pretense, both felonies.

Special agents with the NC Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division found that Springs Jr. submitted a claim for funds from Allstate that he had earlier filed with Liberty Mutual to twice collect $9,100 in coverage for stolen items.

According to the arrest document, the offenses occurred on Nov. 14, 2023.

“Insurance fraud hits consumers in the wallet,” 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.
