Gaston County woman charged with insurance fraud

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Cecila Monique Love, 35, of 2713 Westview St., Gastonia. Love was charged with felony insurance fraud.

Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Love of submitting fictitious invoices from Caromont Regional Hospital in the amount of $13,549 to State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. 

The offense occurred on Oct. 4, 2023. 

Commissioner Causey encourages North Carolinians to help keep insurance premiums low by reporting suspicious fraud.

“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.
