Mark M., 36, thought he was going to be able to out-wit a Provident Life and Casualty insurance adjuster. He lied about his medical and psychological history on the disability insurance application. The adjuster became suspicious when he phoned the number Mr. M. provided for his boss and quickly realized that he was really speaking with Mr. M., who was attempting to disguise his voice and pretending to be his own boss.
Mr. M. now faces a criminal fine up to $15,000 and 5 years in prison. He may also face civil insurance fines.
The surname has been removed by request of Mr. M. He has fulfilled his punishment and seeks to put this event of poor judgement behind him.
