Ariz. Man Indicted on Multiple Fraud Counts in Nev.

Nevada’s Clark County Grand Jury indicted Pavel Daniel Oprea, 37, 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.
