Florida CFO Jeff Atwater said an ongoing insurance fraud investigation known as “Operation Leaky Pipes” has led to the arrests of 12 Miami residents. He said the investigation uncovered a scheme between a licensed public adjuster and a plumber to coach homeowners on how to file fraudulent insurance claims for pre-existing or non-existent water damage. The homeowners filed fraudulent claims in an attempt to claim money for home remodeling.
