14 people arrested in alleged $528,000 auto insurance scam for accidents that never happened

More than a dozen people were arrested in connection with an “organized auto insurance fraud scam,” which included reporting auto accidents that never happened, according to WFOR-TV.
On Tuesday, WFOR reported that the scam forced Geico to pay out about $528,000 in bogus auto insurance claims.

Florida State Attorney Kathy Fernandez Rundle held a news conference Tuesday to discuss the 14 people reportedly involved, and arrested in connection with the case.
“These fourteen individuals are allegedly in an auto insurance scam with an unusual twist,” Rundle said. “That twist involves fake auto damage claims with the same car from accidents that never happened.”
