7 Accused Of Running Car Insurance Fraud Ring In Fargo

 Monday, April 26, 2021


Seven people face criminal charges in Fargo for allegedly running a car insurance fraud ring where they crashed into each other’s vehicles and collected insurance money for profit.

Cass County prosecutors filed last week felony charges of conspiracy to commit a fraudulent insurance act and illegally conducting an enterprise against Fargo residents Connor Del Marum, Jamal Dantrell Neita, Zachary Scott Norquist, Tarron Lashon Spragging, Emmanuel Essam, Elijah Darne Stone and Steven Stone.

Neita appeared Monday in court on the charges, and arrest warrants are out for the remaining defendants.

The North Dakota Insurance Fraud Division started investigating the group in June after receiving an online referral from Geico Insurance.

The company said Steven Stone bought a liability-only policy for a van he did not own but claimed he backed into Jamal Neita’s parked vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.
