California Windshield Repairer Ordered To Pay Insurer $1.4M

August 11, 2014

The owner of a Sonoma County windshield repair business accused in a fraudulent billing scheme has been ordered to pay Allstate Insurance and the state of California more than $1.4 million.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported the judgment against Reshat Alkayisi was announced last week.

Court records allege Alkayisi engaged in an elaborate scheme to create multiple bogus auto-glass replacement businesses. He is accused of using fake names and identities and then deceiving insurers by submitting fraudulent claims. Several of his family members had their names used without their consent or knowledge.

Allstate charged in court that Alkayisi submitted at least 118 fraudulent claims to the company out of the 162 it examined.

Alkayisi could not be located for comment.

The newspaper says he is on probation for a felony check forgery in a separate case.
