Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin and his criminal investigators allege that Moore substantially misrepresented her actual loss when she submitted claims documentation to Allstate Insurance after a June 2008 fire at her Wilkes County home. Security personnel at a retail store in Hickory became suspicious and notified the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division after observing Moore returning merchandise shortly after its purchase on several occasions according to officials.
