IN A PRESS RELEASE THURSDAY, the N. Carolina Dept. of Insurance said that 68-year-old Martha Jeffries Inman lied when she said various animals struck her vehicles multiple times.
Her son, Cecil Dwayne Robertson, 43, is being accused of submitting a false statement supporting the fraudulent claims.
Investigators said, as a result, Inman received $10,635.00 from Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance.
The pair lied about damage to her vehicles to collect insurance payouts, the state insurance commissioner said. https://t.co/MImAgy7gng— The News & Observer (@newsobserver) September 20, 2021
