A McCordsville man was sentenced to 47 months in prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

According to court documents, Wesley A. Smith, 31, was employed by Seven Corners, a travel insurance business located in Carmel. His duties included processing travel insurance claims of Seven Corners clients.

One of the clients is Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA). FMCA was an organization of RV owners whose members received travel insurance coverage for their RVs. Included in that coverage was reimbursement for necessary towing of a damaged RV.

Beginning December 2015 and continuing through December 2017, Smith devised a complex fraud scheme to steal money from his employer.

He recruited three of his friends, who were not employed by Seven Corners to participate in his scheme. Using his position in the company, Smith created and approved fraudulent travel insurance claims purportedly submitted by FMCA claimants.
