30-year-old Michael Charles Young was convicted of bilking over $500,000 from insurance companies through fraudulent claims.

Three other people also involved in the scam are still on the loose – 20-year-old Jazlyn Ladana Burrell, 26-year-old Lavina Louise Nunally and 22-year-old Desiree Patricia Vasquez.

The fraud ring was in operation from 2014 – 2016.  Dozens of false claims were filed, from $5,000 to $40,000.  The claims were filed with different insurance companies.

The CDI added, “In most cases, false identities were used to register and insure the vehicles used to file claims and accomplices were provided scripts to use when communicating with insurers. Some defendants allowed their identities to be used for compensation and then cashed checks issued in their names. The ring grew as friends and family members were recruited.”
