Insurance fraud can be defined as knowingly presenting an insurance claim containing false or misleading information with the intent of obtaining benefit or compensation from an insurance company. Some examples of insurance fraud include such activities as faking auto accidents and/or participating in staged car accidents; falsifying a personal physical injury for insurance benefits; making false health care disability claims; and exaggerating property damage caused by a fire or natural disaster.
Insurance companies are specially protected by federal law. Many disputes between an insurance company and its claimants have become criminal prosecutions, and the law allows prosecution even if the insurance company never paid the disputed claim.
Even if you are just convicted of a paperwork mistake, you could face time in federal prison. Any felony conviction means you can never own a gun for the rest of your life.
