Montgomery County Man Indicted for Insurance Fraud

BALTIMORE, MD (March 4, 2009) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Alpha Mamadou Bah, also known as Elhadj Mamadou Bah, of Burtonsville, was indicted on charges of insurance fraud by a grand jury in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County.

The charges allege that on February 27, 2001, Bah made false statements with reference to an application for mortgage life insurance to Minnesota Life Insurance Company and that on June 6, 2002, he then made a false claim against the policy. The value of the fraud alleged is $127,935. A trial date of May 18, 2009, has been set.

Insurance fraud of $300 or greater is a felony punishable by a maximum sentence of 15 years incarceration and a $10,000 fine.

The indictment follows a joint investigation by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration, the Maryland State Police and the Office of the Attorney General. A criminal charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and the defendant is presumed innocent unless the State proves his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
