A Gloucester County Woman was arrested and charged with insurance fraud after she allegedly filed a fictitious claim to a NJ cable company.
According to authorities, Kesha Gentry-Muhammad, 37, of Williamstown NJ was arrested by the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office on insurance fraud and tampering with records charges in connection with a falsified invoice for repair of water damage that was submitted to the Comcast Corporation, Prosecutor Charles A. Fiore announced.
Prosecutor Fiore said Gentry-Muhammad’s submission was to support a claim that a Comcast technician’s work in her home involved disconnection of a basement sump pump.
A subsequent rainstorm flooded the basement, causing $14,470 in damage that required $2,618.96 in water and mold removal work, the claim stated according to Prosecutor Fiore.
Authorities say Gentry-Muhammad submitted an invoice for that amount from a firm she identified as In Too Deep, of Kearny NJ.
Detectives investigating the case says no such firm exists.
The Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, the insurer for Comcast, referred the claim to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office, which investigated in partnership with the NJ Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor.
The investigation remains active and ongoing.
