Wilson County man faces insurance fraud charge

RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) – State agents say a Wilson County man had a car crash, bought a new insurance policy, and then tried to collect on it.

Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey says Jason Osborne was charged with one count of insurance fraud, which is a felony.

Causey says the 47-year-old Elm City man got the $100,000 automobile policy after he was involved in the car crash.

An arrest warrant says the fake claim was filed on February 14th.

Osborne turned himself in on Monday and he was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond.
