BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Life insurance agent enhances livelihood with 28 fake applications

An insurance agent in Utah used the identities of 22 people to falsely apply for 28 life insurance policies with upfront commissions, according to the Deseret News.

Michael Craig Nebeker of Santa Clara, Utah, was charged Thursday with 28 counts of identity fraud crimes, a third-degree felony, and is facing one count of pattern of unlawful activity and three counts of fraudulent insurance act, both second-degree felonies, and one forgery charge, a third-degree felony.

Mr. Nebeker, 38, was working at Farm Bureau Insurance in St. George, Utah, during the latter half of 2017 when police say he filed 28 applications for life insurance using stolen identities, according to the newspaper.

Mr. Nebeker received an upfront commission when he filed the applications, mostly of people he never met, according to the newspaper. The policies were then canceled when premiums weren't paid.
