The Protective Group, a leading security company on Long Island, responds to an October 11th article published by Ocala.com titled “Man, 55, sent to prison for insurance fraud scheme.”
The article discusses how Rocky Williams was convicted of several charges involving the insurance fraud in Florida, including “first-degree felony count of organized fraud and four third-degree felony counts of burning to defraud the insurer.”
According to the article, Williams planned the incineration of four residential homes and the collection of $185,000 in insurance payouts from insurance companies. Police believe he may have been working with the homeowners to burn down the homes and split the insurance proceeds. There are five co-defendants in the case, but their cases are still pending.In addition to his jail sentence and probation, Williams must pay $25,000 in restitution money to compensate several insurance companies affected. The article lists American Bankers Insurance, Geovera Insurance Co. and Universal Property and Casualty Insurance as the insurance companies that would receive these funds.
John Monderine, CEO of the Protective Group, a leading insurance investigator provider, believes that justice was served in this case. “It seems to me that Williams received an appropriate sentence given the information available. Insurance fraud is a serious crime, and in this case it would have endangered the lives of other individuals as well. Insurance fraud can also lead to increased rates for everyone else. Insurance companies must be wary of such scams.”
