North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Terry Allen Spivey, 57, of 4450 Whitestocking Road, Burgaw. Spivey was charged with insurance fraud, a felony.
Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Spivey of falsely telling Essentia Insurance Co. that his vehicle was stolen and then wrecked when he had been in an auto accident.
The offense occurred on Dec. 3, 2021.
“Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime,” Commissioner Causey said. “It hits all of us in the pocket through higher premiums.”
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.
