Albany - Nine people have been arrested, so far, in this huge insurance scam. But many more will likely be picked up before it's over. They're charged with filing bogus claims with AFLAC, the insurance carrier for the city of Albany and Dougherty County.
The ring leaders are believed to be city of Albany sanitation worker Tim Hunt and his unemployed wife, Kysheila. Dozens of others are believed to be involved.
Dougherty Sheriff's Investigators say the Hunts even had a business on the side ripping off AFLAC, that once they figured out how to fraudulently fill out medical forms, they went to work.
Dougherty Sheriff's Investigators say they got caught because they got greedy. A red flag that now has Sheriff's And AFLAC Investigators digging deep to determine how many people were involved and how much money was ripped off.
