New York superintendent of Insurance Gregory Serio announced that an investigation into suspected sales of fake insurance ID cards has resulted in the arrest of Theresa Feliz, 49, of Bronx, New York. She is charged with Forgery, Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument, Scheme to Defraud, Falsifying Business Record and Insurance Fraud.

Complaints to the Insurance Department about potential sales of fraudulent insurance cards by Feliz initiated an investigation.

It was further revealed that Feliz, who was the owner of Ambarina Travel & Brokerage Inc. in Bronx, New York, had her broker license revoked in 1998.

On Aug. 7, 2002 Feliz was arrested. If convicted of these charges she faces up to 18 years in prison.
