Attorney General Paula T. Dow and Criminal Justice Director Stephen J. Taylor announced that an Ocean County woman has been indicted for allegedly submitting a phony “slip and fall” insurance claim. According to Acting Insurance Fraud Prosecutor Ronald Chillemi, Michelle Trapp, 40, of Mystic Island, was charged yesterday with third-degree insurance fraud and fourth-degree falsifying records. The Ocean County grand jury indictment alleges that on Nov. 4, 2009, Trapp falsely represented to Target Corporation that she had fallen in the parking lot of the Target store located in Stafford Township, Ocean County, and had sustained an injury. The indictment also alleges that Trapp signed a Guest Incident Report, dated Nov. 4, 2009, knowing that it contained false statements or information in order to deceive Target.
