Miami couple busted for selling fake insurance to truckers

| 7/27/2005

Florida authorities arrested a Miami woman on charges of selling fraudulent liability insurance certificates to local truckers. The woman’s husband was also implicated in the crime and is expected to surrender to authorities this week.

According to the Florida Department of Financial Services, Rosa Badjor was arrested after she was discovered paying an accident claim without a license. The state revoked the couple’s licenses several years ago following forgery charges.

An investigation by the department’s Division of Insurance Fraud found that the Badjors sold fake insurance policies to truckers at anywhere from $500 to $1,500 apiece, then pocketed the money.

The certificates purported to be from Canal Insurance, one of the largest insurers of trucks in the country, but the couple was not licensed to sell policies from Canal or any other company.
