Gwinnett County Woman Wanted for Insurance Fraud, Forgery
ATLANTA – Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced today that Sade Douay, 36, of Norcross, has been charged with insurance fraud and forgery.
On January 30th of 2021, Ms. Douay was the victim of a carjacking incident. She filed a claim with her insurance company for the loss of her vehicle, and a City of Atlanta Police Department (APD) incident report revealed that she only reported her cell phone and purse as lost due to the theft.
“Shortly after the incident, Ms. Douay initiated a homeowner’s insurance policy for her apartment,” said Commissioner King. “She then filed a claim nearing $23,000 for lost property as a result of the carjacking, which included an itemized list of high-end property not contained within the initial incident report. Upon investigation, agents from our Criminal Investigations Division determined that Ms. Douay altered her incident report to reflect a date after her homeowners policy went into effect.”
Warrants were issued against Ms. Douay on September 22nd, 2022, for one count each of Insurance Fraud and Forgery. She is still wanted at this time.
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.
