A Pottstown, Pa., man was accused of fabricating and submitting a false $1.39 million insurance claim for storm damage to a series of modular townhomes that he owned and allegedly hid in protective wrapping for nearly a year. Kevin Paul Kollar, 48, allegedly filed an insurance claim in 2008 for water and wind damage that allegedly involved eight modular townhomes in the Pottstown area, according to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Insurance Fraud Section. The vacant homes had been stored at an open lot in Pottstown and Kollar allegedly claimed they suffered extensive damage during a storm in March of that year.
