New York Superintendent Neil D. Levin announced that a joint undercover investigation conducted by the Department’s Frauds Bureau and the New York City Police Department’s Auto Crime Division has led to the arrest of Willie Fulmore for the sale of fraudulent automobile insurance cards.

It is alleged that, Fulmore, 56, of Richmond Hill, New York, supplied at least 56 fraudulent vehicle identification cards to his clients netting him $33,600 in illegal proceeds.

Fulmore was doing business as Sure Brokerage in Brooklyn when an undercover Frauds Bureau investigator visited Sure Brokerage and was quoted a price of $600 for a vehicle identification card. The investigator purchased the card and later it was confirmed that there was no policy supporting it. Fulmore was charged with insurance fraud, criminal possession of a forged instrument and forgery and faces up to 14 years in prison if convicted.
