FRESNO, Calif. — Christina Mejia, 31, was arraigned today on nine felony counts of insurance fraud and identity theft after she allegedly stole multiple victims’ identities to purchase an insurance policy and filed a fraudulent claim involving a 2020 Cadillac. These additional charges are the result of a California Department of Insurance investigation intended to protect both consumers and businesses from fraud.
 
The Department began an investigation after an insurance company suspected one of their customers had misrepresented the date of an accident involving a 2020 Cadillac. The investigation revealed the customer involved in the claim was actually a victim of identity theft and Mejia filed the claim under the victim’s name.
