MASON CITY | A Mason City woman is accused of falsifying 20 insurance documents and stealing $6,245 as a result of the insurance fraud.
Amber Marie Griffin, 34, was charged with four counts of felony insurance fraud - presenting false information and one count of felony second-degree theft following an investigation by the Iowa Insurance Division’s Fraud Bureau.
The charges against Griffin stem from an investigation that began in February 2018 over claims seeking reimbursement through an insurance policy, according to a news release from the Iowa Insurance Division.
Griffin is accused of submitting claims and fabricated medical records to AFLAC, alleging family members had been treated at local medical facilities on multiple occasions.
A review of medical records found no treatment on the times and dates that she submitted, court documents said.
Griffin turned herself into the Cerro Gordo County Jail Oct. 30 and was released the same day after posting a $25,000 bond.

She is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court Nov. 14.
