A California Sonoma County Superior Court judge has entered a judgment against automotive glass replacement company owner Reshat Alkayisi for more than $1.4 million in favor of Allstate Insurance Co. The owner was accused of fraudulently inflating windshield replacement claims, according to a local report.
Allstate alleged Alkayisi created fake automotive glass replacement businesses to commit the fraud. The company accused him in of claiming he was using OEM windshields in replacements when instead he was using aftermarket automotive glass. Approximately 118 of the 162 claims reviewed by Allstate investigators were found to be fraudulently reported.
Investigators tracked the fraud by reviewing claim payments from 2007 to 2010 that were sent to Exchange Bank account controlled by Alkayisi in Rohnert Park, Calif.
