More victims coming forward in alleged insurance fraud

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, MI (WNEM) -

Rebecca Westergard remembers the day 15 years ago she got the news.

After continuously making payments for her car insurance, she said Richard Creed at Evergreen Insurance in Auburn told her that her coverage didn't exist.

"I think he should pay all of us back," Westergard said.

At that point, Westergard was paying Evergreen Insurance $90 a month.

Westergard's not alone.

From Au Gres to Vassar, viewers have told TV5 they have similar stories.

On Friday, Creed spoke to TV5, denying the allegations.

Jeff Kelly, a State Farm agent in Bay County, said drivers who thought they were insured through Evergreen could have irreparable damage to their insurability.

"It was a broken record with him," Kelly said.

Drivers who can't show proof of prior recent insurance will now either have to pay hefty bills or won't be able to get coverage at all.

"If there isn't anything in place, regardless if they think something is in place or not, that's still up to to the consumer to make sure it's in place," Kelly said.

Westergard said she's still in shock over how many people are coming forward.

"I just couldn't believe it," Westergard said.
