Metairie Insurance Agent Arrested and Served with a Notice of Proposed Action, License Suspension and Fine Notice
A Metairie insurance agent was arrested by the Louisiana State Police Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit and served by Louisiana Department of Insurance Fraud Section Investigators on September 23 with a Notice of Proposed Action, License Suspension and Civil Fine Notice for alleged insurance fraud.
Angela Bodenheimer, 49, was arrested by the Louisiana State Police Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit today on one count of insurance fraud. She was also served by the Department of Insurance Fraud Section Investigators with a six month license suspension and a $1000 fine notice for alleged insurance fraud.
It is alleged that Bodenheimer, realizing that the insurance policy on her vehicle had lapsed after the vehicle was involved in a wreck, fraudulently manipulated an insurance company upload system in order to create an application for insurance and a declaration page that showed the effective date and time of the policy as being prior to the accident. She then filed a fraudulent claim with the company for the accident.
According to Department records, Bodenheimer was issued a Property & Casualty and Fidelity & Surety license in May 1986, which is active until the six month suspension becomes effective on October 24, 2011. Bodenheimer has 30 days from time of service to appeal this action.
Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance related transaction to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Section at 225-342-4956 or 1-800-259-5300. If callers do not want their names used, they can request that their involvement be kept confidential.
