Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I don't participate in phone calls. So there won't be any. We will continue here.
Please tell me what are the circumstances? Are you concerned you will be charged with fraud on the current report?
In other words, did you make the claim on based on a falsehood?
Thank you. Of course I cannot tell you what to do. I can only provide the possible consequences in your scenarios.So if you continue with the claim as it is now you risk being charged with a fraudulent report. If you tell them you made a fraudulent claim, then you also risk a criminal charge because the claim was made with an intent to gain.If you drop the claim, chances of any charges are minimized. But if they wanted to investigate for potential fraud they could.In most states, the charge of insurance claim fraud is generally a felony. If you provide me with your state, I can be more specific as to possible criminal charge and penalty.
I hope this helps in your decision making process.
You may be asked why. And you can tell them you changed your mind for whatever reason.
