Palmetto Man Charged With Fraud, Forgery
ATLANTA – Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced today that Shrone Hayes, 45, of Palmetto, has been charged with Insurance Fraud and Forgery in connection with a Fulton County case.
“Mr. Hayes was involved in a motor vehicle accident in February of last year,” said Commissioner King. “During the claims process, he is alleged to have provided his insurance company with a “lost wages” document that contained false information and a forged signature in order to attempt to secure additional compensation.”
Commissioner King’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID) conducted a thorough investigation into this matter, which resulted in arrest warrants issued from a Fulton County judge for one count of Insurance Fraud and one Count of Forgery in the 1st Degree.
The mission of the Office Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire is to protect Georgia families by providing access to vital insurance products and safe buildings through fair regulation that creates economic opportunities for all Georgians.
