Jamar Marlyn Jones of Baltimore, MarylandBetween February 2013 and December 2013, Jamar Jones filed more than 25 fictitious damage claims with 14 different insurers. Jones recruited family members and friends to file claims with the various insurers claiming that they struck his vehicle and they were at fault. The accomplices would tell the insurers that their vehicles were not damaged but Jones’ vehicle did sustain damage resulting in insurance company payouts for the alleged damage. Jones would then keep the monies paid and not have his vehicle repaired. On November 28, 2017, Jones was indicted, in Harford County Circuit Court, and charged with multiple counts of Insurance Fraud, Theft-Scheme, Theft-Felony, and Conspiracy to Commit Theft. Jones pled guilty to one count of Theft-Scheme and he was sentenced to 10 years of incarceration and given 5 years of supervised probation. As a special condition of his probation, the court ordered Jones to pay restitution in the amount of $85,761 to the insurers impacted by his fictitious claims.
