15 people now arrested in fraud ring

September 28, 2005

Albany - 46-year old Melvin Taylor of Sylvester turned himself in yesterday on one count of insurance fraud. Taylor is accused of filing a false personal injury claim with AFLAC while working at Equity Group, formerly Cagel, in Camilla.

Taylor is the 15th person charged in an insurance fraud ring. Seven city of Albany employees, six garbage men and one Water, Gas, and Light meter reader are also charged.

Investigators say Tim Hunt and his unemployed wife Kysheila are the ringleaders and even showed others how to rip off AFLAC in exchange for a percentage of their insurance checks.
