Idaho Insurance Agent Sentenced in Fraud Case

October 4, 2010

An Idaho judge has ordered an insurance agent from Rathdrum to spend 20 days in jail and pay more than $4,200 in restitution for insurance fraud.

Former Mutual of Omaha agent Wesley Bruce Thompson pleaded guilty to the crime in July.

The Idaho Attorney General’s office accused the 58-year-old Thompson of submitting an application for a life insurance policy without the client’s knowledge. Investigators say he scanned the client’s signature from another policy, then photocopied it on to the false application.

The judge also sentenced Thompson to 400 hours of community service.

Officials say the investigation was done at the request of Mutual of Omaha executives.
