Wingate woman charged with insurance fraud


RALEIGH

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Margarita Rena Wall, 43, of 2819 Bobwhite Circle, Wingate. Wall was charged with insurance fraud, a felony.

Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Wall of providing fraudulent documents and giving a false statement to Travelers Indemnity Co. to support a personal property homeowners’ policy claim.

The offense occurred between Nov. 14, 2019, and Jan. 9, 2020.

Wall was arrested on June 23 and given a $10,000 unsecured bond. She is due in Union County District Court on July 16.

“Insurance fraud hurts consumers,” Commissioner Causey said. “Approximately 20% of your insurance premium goes to cover the cost of fraud. That’s why I’m aggressively pursuing and prosecuting insurance fraud in North Carolina.”

If you suspect insurance fraud or other white-collar crimes, please report it. You may report fraud anonymously by calling the N.C. Department of Insurance Criminal Investigations Division at 919-807-6840. Information is also available at www.ncdoi.gov.
