Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit investigated Jaimier Washington for registering his vehicle with a fraudulent financial responsibility identification card. On April 29, 2015, Washington struck a parked vehicle with his 2003 Acura. When the Philadelphia Police came to file an accident report for this incident, Washington presented them with an American Independent financial responsibility identification card. Insurance Fraud Unit detectives later retrieved the Penndot title history for Washington’s 2003 Acura and learned that he used the same financial responsibility identification card which he presented to police to register his vehicle on February 23, 2015. Detectives then contacted a representative from American Independent and learned that the listed policy number was not valid. Washington was arrested for Forgery and Insurance Fraud on July 30, 2015. He is next scheduled to appear in Philadelphia Municipal Court for a status listing on August 7, 2015.
