Scam Alert - Detroit Woman Arrested for Selling Fake Auto Insurance Policies



DETROIT, Mich. - A 40-year-old woman has been arrested for selling more than 300 fake auto insurance policies to the people in metro Detroit.

The Wayne County sheriff’s office says Timmica Morton was arraigned on charges that she used a computer to commit a crime, possession and sale of stolen or counterfeit insurance certificates, and fraud involving insurance.

Authorities say she used Wayne State University computers to get access to car insurance policy applications and create false banking information. Morton works in Wayne State’s environmental health department.

Timmica Morton offered policies with a small down payment and small monthly payments for full coverage to attract the victims.

Morton accessed insurance policy applications from the Ameriprise website and filled out the applications with false banking information.  The university official said Morton mainly used her personal laptop but with their Wi-Fi.  

Morton collected anywhere from $30 to $300 dollars in cash from her victims.  One woman told police she paid Morton $175 for her son’s down payment.

Ameriprise figured out someone was ripping them off after their officials noticed a spike in new policies with false banking information.  Then authorities tracked her through her Wi-Fi usage.

Surprisingly, this is her second offense.  So if someone offers an insurance coverage that is too cheap to believe, call the insurance company to verify.
