Why is the FBI involved?
When you commit a crime against an insurance company, it is a Federal Offense!!!!

Criminal lives in NYS - Insurance company's main home office is in another State.

When the criminal submitted any type of paper documents, it had to cross state lines which automatically became a federal offense.

Scamming at 60 makes you that. What about the guy that goes to work everyday, sacrifices for his family, goes without so his kids have it better than he did ? That's a standup guy in my book.

You are simply wrong. There are more important things to some people than money. You can talk for yourself, but there are still people out there with good morals.
