Mercer County Man Charged With Submitting Fraudulent Disability Insurance Claims March 15, 2010

Posted by jefhenninger in News.

Emeka Iheukwumere, 53, of Ewing, Mercer County, was charged Friday (March 12) with second-degree insurance fraud, third-degree theft by deception and fourth-degree falsifying records.

The Mercer County grand jury indictment alleges that between July 7, 2003, and March 30, 2005, Iheukwumere submitted fraudulent accidental disability claim forms and continuing disability claim forms. The indictment charges that Iheukwumere allegedly submitted claims containing fraudulent employee statements and attending physician statements to American Family Life Insurance Company (AFLAC) in connection with claims for disability payments. Iheukwumere allegedly claimed he was employed by the Council for Airport Opportunities, even though he was not employed by that entity and therefore was not entitled to disability benefits. The indictment also alleges that, as a result of his fraudulent actions, Iheukwumere obtained 12 insurance disability claim checks totaling $39,337.50 from AFLAC to which he was not entitled.
