North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced that Tilneshia Shuntovia Mobley, 34, of 7605 Holly Grove Court, Charlotte, was charged with insurance fraud, a felony.
Special Agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Mobley of filing a false automobile insurance claim with Liberty Mutual Insurance Co., saying she was injured in an accident when she was not in the vehicle at the time of the collision.
The offense occurred between Feb. 22 and March 18.
Mobley was served with a criminal summons on Sept. 30. She is due in Mecklenburg County District Court on Dec. 14.
Commissioner Causey estimates fraud costs North Carolinians between 15 and 20 cents on every dollar paid on insurance premiums, maybe more. That’s why he has cracked down on this white-collar crime by boosting the NCDOI Criminal Investigations Division.
Over the past two years, CID Special Agents recovered $7.5 million in damages – money that was returned to consumers and insurance companies. The restitution also helps preserve insurance rates.
To report suspected fraud, contact the N.C. Department of Insurance Criminal Investigations Division at 919-807-6840. Callers may remain anonymous. Information is also available at www.ncdoi.gov.
