BAKERSFIELD– An auto accident occurred in September of 2016 that apparently became the basis for an attempt at insurance fraud.
At first Singh stated that he was driving, although he was not covered on the auto policy. He then changed that statement and asserted that his wife was the driver.
Progressive, their insurance provider, paid $11,600 to the lien holder in response to the accident.
As the investigation progressed, the claims adjuster heard from the driver of the other car, who stated that in fact it was Singh who was driving the Camry.
It was then established that the couple provided false statements to Progressive in their attempt to collect on their insurance policy.
The CDI press release states that the couple “surrendered to authorities and were charged with multiple felony counts for allegedly conspiring to defraud their insurance company into paying for a collision that was not covered under their policy.”
