 Monday, November 17, 2014

Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman and the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor (OIFP) today announced that a Perth Amboy man was indicted for allegedly faking an accident at his job site to get his insurance to cover the half-million dollar cost of medical treatment for injuries he had suffered prior to his employment. In addition, the defendant accepted approximately $55,803 in temporary disability payments for two years following the faked accident, though he was working under-the-table at a Keyport auto body shop.
