WARMINSTER, PA — A man from Warminster will pay $12,000 to resolve charges that he made fake insurance claims to the U.S. Postal Service.
David W. Miller, Jr., agreed to the settlement for fraudulent claims he was accused of making in 2017-18, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia announced.
A federal investigation revealed that Miller falsely claimed that packages he sent, or received, via Priority Mail arrived damage, when they did not, prosecutors say. As a result, Miller improperly received between $1,830 and $9,100 from the Postal Service, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
“Fraud should never pay, and we are committed to ensuring that it does not,” said U.S. Attorney William McSwain. “My office places a high priority on enforcement in all types of fraud against the government and works with its law enforcement partners to identify and investigate these matters. This case should serve as notice that we will come after anyone who steals from the United States government, with every tool we have.”
