One of them, Scott Bobrow, 40 is presumably held responsible for listing the others as mock claimants in accident claims they were not actually involved in. For all their help Bobrow had paid a total of $15000 to each of his co-conspirators.
Now, Bobrow could be bailed out for $60,000 where as his co-conspirators are heading a bail plea worth $35000. This case has been brought to the court by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. Bobrow the prime suspect had been an employee with the Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.

I would love to convey my best wishes to all the people in this community!
Though I am from Swansea, UK, I had been looking for a community like yours for quite sometime. In the recent times, the UK motor insurance industry is estimated to have expended worth a billion pounds every year for meeting up fraudulent claims. This is high time that people should come to realize the consequences of filing fake claims.
With the introduction of a new set of medical scanners it has become a lot easier to detect false claims, since the latest technology enables us to scan even the soft tissues in the neck. Incase the UK motor insurance law is defied, the offender might face a penalty worth a sizeable fine or he might even end up in prison. Anyone trying to help such an offender can also face an identical dilemma. A policy owner has to ensure that if he has head supports at all, they need to be regulated properly.
Thanking All Of You,

After being in a legal profession for almost a decade, I have come across a couple of interesting cases revealing the plight of insurance companies in terms of sheer unprofessional behavior and poor understanding. Even though its not possible for me to share many of these cases, but I'm sure the burglary with the Simpsons would generate considerable interest.
One early autumn evening, the Worcestershire couple returned home to find to their dismay that they had been robbed off their most precious possessions only hours before. As a normal course of action the couple contacted the police and conveyed an estimation of their loss to their insurer. Their claim depicted 63 stolen items worth over twenty thousand pounds. The insurance firm opted for an investigation of the entire event, which turned out to be a slackening process for almost a year.
Once the investigation made its way, the couples' claim got rejected by their insurer stating how the couple had enhanced the list of missing items during the course of the investigation. It also stated how the couple had failed to support their cause with proper information and help from their side.
A prompt investigation revealed the fact, that the Simpsons had the receipts of all the lost items. Contrary to the belief, the verdict ensured that its natural and quite normal that the victims would not be able to obtain the total worth of their loss before a considerable period of time. Consequently, the insurance firm involved in the case got convicted of being unprofessional to the victims and was forced to settle the claim along a 500 pounds compensation for its poor administration.
I am sure that the insurance companies in UK would look to manage their administration in a better way before they get entangled in such legal cases.
