AWC/2009017334901/June 2010
Cheeseman altered term life insurance policies in order to falsely represent that a husband and wife applying for insurance had life insurance coverage as set forth in the invalid policy contracts. Cheeseman sent the customers a policy that belonged to other customers, after falsifying the applicants’ names and dates of the policy. When the customers brought discrepancies to her attention, she provided them with another altered policy, and accepted a check from the customers for premium payments.

Bill Singer's Comment
If you really thing about this one, it's quite frightening.  Imagine that you and your spouse believe that you have insurance coverage, only to learn at the worst possible time -- the death of one of you -- that you had nothing more than a fabricated piece of paper.
