53 Warrants Issued in Tampa Fraud Investigation

Months of investigating by the Hillsborough County police department resulted in warrants being issued for more than 50 people who are suspected of staging auto accident crashes, committing insurance fraud, racketeering as well as numerous other felony crimes.

The investigation uncovered several medical clinics as well as individual scams that were committing fraud in order to take advantage of Florida's personal injury protection insurance. An estimated total of $850 million in fraud related to the insurance occurred over several years starting in 2008 and ending in 2010. As the leading epicenter of insurance fraud and staged crashes, the investigation into Tampa accident claims was considered crucial when an emerging pattern was noticed in late 2009.
