Florida Peninsula Insurance Company’s cooperation with the Department of Insurance Fraud led to the arrest of two Orlando men suspected of filing a fraudulent water damage claim in 2011. Once Florida Peninsula became suspicious of the events of this claim a special investigation commenced and reported to the State of Florida. Both men were suspected of providing false statements and presenting fraudulent invoices. Upon further investigation, details and text messages surfaced which concluded the two worked at an Orlando restoration company in the past and attempted to defraud Florida Peninsula and their former employer out of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, insurance fraud is not a victimless crime as insurance premiums are adversely affected by the magnitude of fraudulent claims filed in the State of Florida. Insurance fraud is defined by any individual or business who intends to fraudulently obtain payment from an insurer.
