Can you imagine staging an accident to place blame on an innocent driver, and then abusing insurance policies to make a buck? Sounds like a lot of work for a not-so-quick payout, when there are plenty of available jobs in North Dakota! But sure enough, it’s insurance fraud and it’s happening in Fargo right under our noses.

That’s why it’s so nice to see our state Insurance Commissioner, Jon Godfread, going to work to hold these criminals accountable.

I just read about this scheme last week, and Godfread and the Cass County State’s Attorney’s office are filing charges against two individuals guilty of manipulating good citizens in the Fargo area and committing insurance fraud. It’s nice to see those who abuse the system meeting their day in court. It’s an even better feeling to see our elected officials like Commissioner Godfread working for the people!
