New York Man Charged in No-Fault Fraud Scheme

April 13, 2010

An upstate New York man has been charged with fraudulently collecting $6,000 in no-fault lost wage benefits, the New York State Insurance Department said.

State police arrested Daniel J. Weisenburger, of Rome, following an investigation by the Insurance Department’s Frauds Bureau into a no-fault insurance claim Weisenburger submitted after a December 8 car accident.

Investigators found that Weisenburger gave false information to Nationwide Insurance Company stating that he was going to start a new job at a Rome tavern and that injuries he suffered in the accident prevented him from doing so.

Weisenburger was charged with insurance fraud and falsifying business records. He could be sentenced to seven years in prison if he is convicted.
