Arson Suspect Indicted in $120,050 Insurance Fraud Scheme

Phoenix, AZ The Arizona Department of Insurance (ADOI) Fraud Unit, in conjunction with the Phoenix Fire Department Investigations Unit, arrested Mohamed Abdulrahman on multiple felony charges, including arson of a structure, fraudulent insurance claim, and forgery. 

The fire occurred in a commercial storage building in the early hours of November 1st, 2017.  When Mr. Abdelrahman was interviewed by insurance adjusters, he misrepresented details and facts during the claim process, which is a violation of Arizona statutes.  During the claim process, Mr. Abdelrahman pushed for a fast settlement, and even filed complaints with the Arizona Department of Insurance Consumer Affairs Division, requesting assistance because the insurance companies were not paying him for his losses.

During the four-month investigation that would ensue, investigators learned that Mr. Abdelrahman had increased his insurance coverage on the unit a few days prior to the fire.  Mr. Abdelrahman was in the area of the storage facility when the fire was discovered and used his vehicle to block first responders from entering the location, alleging his vehicle broke down in-front of the facility entrance. The building security cameras were sabotaged hours before the fire was reported.

The claims Abdelrahman filed with insurance companies totaled $120,050.00.  The case is being prosecuted by the Arizona Attorney General’s Office for criminal charges.  If found guilty, Mr. Abdelrahman could receive up to 12 1/2 years in prison.
