Attorney General Pruitt Charges Chickasha Resident with Insurance Fraud
OKLAHOMA CITY –- Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s Workers’ Compensation and Insurance Fraud Unit has filed a charge against a Chickasha woman for allegedly filing a false insurance claim.
According to the charge filed in Grady County District Court, Sandra K. Johnson, 51, submitted a claim alleging that while she was out of town her car received hail damage. She said her car was damaged while it was parked at her sister-in-law’s residence and that there was no prior damage to the car. When the insurance company provided proof that Johnson had filed at least 10 previous claims on the same car, she withdrew her claim.
During an investigation by the AG’s Workers’ Compensation and Insurance Fraud Unit, Johnson admitted to lying about the location of the car and to filing multiple claims, but only getting the car repaired twice.
The Attorney General’s Workers’ Compensation and Insurance Fraud Unit is the only Oklahoma law enforcement agency dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of workers’ compensation fraud. The Unit also helps raise public awareness of fraud in Oklahoma.
