Jeffrey Leon Webb
RIVERSIDE — In 3 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL, 34-year-old Jeffrey Leon Webb caught one touchdown. One wonders if he anticipated success after his football career by trying to elude police the same way he had attempted to elude gridiron defenders.
Webb and eight other “teammates” staged four collisions for the purpose of collecting fraudulent claims to the tune of $70,000.
The scam involved both privately owned vehicles and rental vehicles. Damage to the vehicles was minor, after collisions with poles or curbs. However, the participants requested medical assistance each time in their attempt to file the fraudulent claims.
Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones remarked on this case, “California is ground zero for staged auto collisions. Organized crime rings are responsible for the majority of staged collisions, which are costly to insurers and consumers. The multi-agency Urban Grant Task Force is one of our most effective weapons in eradicating these crimes.”
