Rosa Bajdor of Miami was arrested today and charged with transacting insurance without a certificate after whe was discovered paying an accident claim without a license. Bajdor’s husband, Peter, was also implicated and is expected to surrender later this week. Additional charges are forthcoming.
In an investigation carried out by the Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud, the Bajdors were discovered to have sold fraudulent liability insurance certificates to local truck drivers. Both previously held licenses to sell insurance in Florida that were revoked pursuant to a prior agreement with the department.
The investigation uncovered a scheme in which the Bajdors would sell fraudulent insurance certificates to local truckers for $500 and would use the proceeds for personal gain. In one case, the suspects actually paid a claim without the requisite license.
