2 held for fake insurance claims
Two people were arrested in Pasig City on Friday for alleged falsification of documents for insurance claims.
Chief Superintendent Romulo Sapitula, Eastern Police District director, said Andres Fernandez and Sherwin John Amposta were apprehended after receiving a check for P400,000 during a sting in Barangay San Antonio at around 4:30 p.m.
The operation stemmed from a complaint by a representative of SCCI Insurance Co. that Fernandez and Amposta submitted falsified documents the same day.
The suspects were seeking insurance for the victims of a vehicular accident in San Andres, Quezon on April 29. The victims are taxi driver Arsenio Gumapac and his relative, identified as Marlo.
They are facing charges of estafa.
