Three Jacksonville Residents Charged with PIP fraud

Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater recently announced that three Jacksonville residents have been arrested for personal injury protection fraud. The suspects—Yolanda Vargas, Christian Vargas, and Willdelyn Rodgriguez—have each been charged with one count of committing a staged motor vehicle accident and one count of insurance fraud.

A fourth suspect by the name of Felix Vargas, who has not yet been located, is alleged to have recruited the three individuals to participate in the fraud scheme. He is believed to be connected to a New York identity theft ring, as well as to an IRS scam in which he directed payment of others’ tax refunds to himself.
