Man Indicted for Multiple Frauds

March 19, 2003

Nevada Attorney General Brian Sandoval announced that a Clark County Grand Jury recently indicted Pavel Daniel Oprea on nine felony counts of insurance fraud including three counts each of the following: false application to insurer, false claim for insurance benefits, and obtaining money by false pretenses. Oprea’s permanent residence is believed to be in Arizona.

Oprea is alleged to have applied for automobile insurance benefits from four different insurance companies and made identical claims for property damage to three of these companies. He also allegedly reported his vehicle stolen to one insurance company and was paid for the automobile at a much higher rate than the actual mileage on the car would dictate. In his three claims for identical damage to his vehicle he was paid $3177.09, $3297.87 and $3220.17 respectively.

A grand jury indictment is not a conviction of guilt, rather it establishes that probable cause exists that the crimes alleged have been committed.

Insurance fraud is a felony in Nevada, punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine of up to $5000.00.
