Special Agents charge Stanly County man with insurance fraud


North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced that Jeremy Ryan Boroski, 23, of 40966 Mountain View Church Road, Albemarle, was charged with insurance fraud and attempting to obtain property by false pretense, both felonies, along with misdemeanor making a false report to police.

According to the criminal summons, Boroski filed an auto insurance claim with Geico Insurance Co. saying that his vehicle was stolen, knowing that he had wrecked the vehicle and left it on the side of the road. Boroski also filed a stolen vehicle report with the Stanley County Sheriff’s office, according to the summons.

The offenses occurred between April 18 and May 20.

Special Agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division served Boroski with a criminal summons on Sept. 17. He is scheduled to appear in Stanly County District Court on Oct. 19.

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.
