WOMAN USES FRUAUDLENT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IDENTIFICATION CARDS TO REGISTER AND RENEW HER 2003 ACURA

by

Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit investigated Uche Nwani after receiving a citizen referral alleging Nwani had fraudulent insurance. Detectives performed a Bureau of Motor Vehicle check on the license plate number included in the citizen referral and learned that the tag corresponded with a 2003 Acura owned by Nwani. The certified title history for the Acura shows that Nwani registered the vehicle with an American International Insurance Company policy number on November 6, 2010. The title history also shows that Nwani renewed her registration in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 with policy numbers allegedly corresponding to American International Insurance Company and American Independent Insurance Company. Detectives contacted a representative from American Independent Insurance Company who stated that the three policy numbers supposedly belonging to American Independent were not valid policies. Detectives also looked at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners index which lists assigned insurance company identification numbers. The number which Nwani used for her alleged American International Insurance Company policies actually belonged to 21st Century Insurance Company. Nwani was arrested on February 10, 2016 for five counts of Forgery, five counts of Insurance Fraud and five counts of Unsworn Falsification to Authorities. Nwani is next listed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas for arraignment on March 8, 2016.
