Former Claims Adjuster Sentenced for Embezzlement

LOS ANGELES — 48-year-old Elizabeth Louise Brown of Canyon County, a former claims adjuster, has pleaded guilty to two counts of insurance fraud with white collar crime enhancement for her scheme to defraud her employer out of more than $289,000. Brown is a former claims adjuster with Explorer Insurance.

According to Department of Insurance Detectives, Brown embezzled from the company between January 2013 and September 2015 by adding friends and family members to claims, resulting in the insurer issuing fraudulent payments to Brown’s co-conspirators.

Evidence first came to light when Explorer Insurance identified fraudulent checks issued in 87 of Brown’s claims. Brown was promptly terminated from employment and her suspected crimes were reported to the Department of Insurance, which launched an investigation.

Brown has been sentenced to four years in state prison and ordered to pay $289,999 in restitution.
