Raleigh man charged with insurance fraud involving vehicle he’d reported stolen

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Daniel Andres Guerra, 24, of 805 S. Meadow Road, Raleigh. Guerra was charged with insurance fraud, a felony.

Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Guerra of reporting his vehicle stolen after being involved in a collision and leaving the scene of the crash.

According to the arrest warrant, Guerra was making a claim with National General Insurance Co.

The offense occurred between Oct. 23, 2021, and Dec. 1, 2021.

Guerra was arrested Jan. 14. He was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.

“Insurance fraud hits consumers in the wallet,” Commissioner Causey said. “Approximately 20 cents of every insurance premium dollar go 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. Information is also available at www.ncdoi.gov.
