January 18, 2012

A Virginia man has been charged with faking his death to collect on a $750,000 life insurance policy.

A federal grand jury indicted 38-year-old Jamie Dwayne Long of Lunenberg on three mail fraud counts last week. U.S . Attorney Neil H. MacBride said that Long was arrested last Thursday.

Long is accused of buying equipment to create a false death certificate and other documents so he could collect on the policy. He also is accused of posing as his brother-in-law and reporting his death to the insurance company. He allegedly asked the insurer to send paperwork for the claim to his wife.
