Wilmington man charged with insurance fraud

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Shaquan Samir Walker, 31, of 1317 Buckingham Ave., Wilmington. Walker was charged with insurance fraud, a felony.

Special agents accuse Walker of altering hospital and doctor visit documents in an accidental health insurance claim with Voya Financial.

Walker was arrested May 3. He was released on $2,500 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 or toll free from anywhere in North Carolina at 888-680-7684.
