September 29, 2014: 30 year old Job Boatneg was charged with Insurance Fraud, Theft by Deception, False Reports and Conspiracy by Philadelphia Insurance Fraud Unit (IFU) detectives. Job Boateng was arrested in connection to an insurance fraud case in which his wife, Awura Boateng, was previously arrested. Awura Boateng filed a claim with Nationwide Insurance Company alleging that her husband had been driving her BMW when a phantom vehicle cut off their car and caused them to strike a tree. Awura Boateng reported to Nationwide Insurance Company that her car was inoperable and had sustained damages to the front bumper, lights and hood as a result of the accident. The investigation revealed that Job Boateng had repeatedly struck a pole with the BMW in order to create additional damages after the initial collision. Job Boateng was later joined by several other males who helped to strike the BMW with sticks. Job Boateng was arrested for Theft by Deception (F-3), Insurance Fraud (F-3), Conspiracy (F-3) and False Reports (M-2) on September 29, 2014. He is next scheduled for a status listing in Philadelphia Municipal Court on October 6, 2014.
