Imani was charged in connection with a fraudulent health insurance claim after an investigation by Kreidler’s Criminal Investigations Unit (CIU).

According to the investigation, Imani hit a pole in a parking lot while driving a 1990 Honda Prelude in August 2014, two days after she purchased an auto insurance policy from GEICO.

Imani sought medical treatment at Valley Medical Center after the accident, which was paid by her health insurance. She submitted forged medical documents to GEICO for reimbursement, telling the company she paid the bills out of her own pocket. She is accused of fraudulently collecting $3,657 in personal injury protection and medical expenses.

If you have information that may lead to the arrest of Imani or anyone wanted for insurance fraud, please contact your local law enforcement agency or contact CIU.

Kreidler’s CIU investigates insurance fraud and works with the Attorney General’s Office and local prosecutors to prosecute criminal cases. Insurance fraud costs the average family $400 to $700 per year in increased premiums. Consumers can report suspected insurance fraud on the Insurance Commissioner’s website.
