North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin announced the arrest of five people accused of engaging in an insurance fraud scheme involving staged auto accidents.
Jaime Farrah Boxley, Christa Sharif Smith, Deanna Liles Smith and Lashaunnette Mary Smith was charged with one count of attempting to obtain property by false pretense.
Department of Insurance criminal investigators allege that during a 10-year period, each of the named individuals conspired to stage accidents in an attempt to collect money for claimed injuries. The Department was alerted after several insurance company representatives connected 16 automobile accidents where injuries and medical expenses were claimed but there was little or no damage to the vehicles.
