Brooklyn Underwriter Arrested for Submitting Fraudulent Claims

July 27, 2000

New York Superintendent of Insurance Neil D. Levin said that Camille Sautner, 26, was arrested on various charges for defrauding Chubb Insurance Company out of $45,000. The arrest is the result of a joint investigation conducted by the Insurance Department’s Frauds Bureau, the New York City Police Department and Travelers Insurance Company.

The charges allege that Sautner, a senior underwriter at Chubb Insurance Company, submitted a fraudulent claim in connection with a burglary on November 9, 1998, at her former residence. She received a settlement of $45,000 from Chubb Insurance for that claim. Sautner submitted a separate claim to Travelers Insurance Company alleging a second burglary on March 29, 1999, in which she claimed the same items stolen.

The investigation is continuing and an additional arrest is pending. Sautner’s employment has since been terminated at Chubb Insurance. Camille Sautner was charged with insurance fraud in the 3rd degree, grand larceny in the 3rd degree, scheme to defraud, offering a false instrument for filing and falsely reporting an incident. If convicted of these charges, she faces up to 19 years in prison.
