Wendell woman charged with insurance fraud


RALEIGH

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of April Denise Moore, 39, of 2960 N.C. 231, Wendell. Moore was charged with insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretense, both felonies.

Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Moore of obtaining $3,275 from Aflac by presenting medical documents that contained false information to the insurance company.

The offenses occurred between Dec. 1, 2016, and May 17, 2018.

Moore was arrested on March 29. She was given a $50,000 secured 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.
