Upstate New York Man Arrested for Auto Insurance Fraud

An upstate New York man who filed a $3,900 insurance claim to cover damages that occurred before he bought an automobile insurance policy has been charged with insurance fraud, the New York State Insurance Department said.

Investigators said Frederick Kalie Cutcher, of Pittsford, bought a policy from Progressive a day after his car was damaged in a traffic accident. He filed a claim several days later and told the insurer the accident occurred after he bought the policy.
