Oklahoma City, Okla.
A former Tulsa insurance agent is back in hot water this week.
First, 57-year-old Cheryl Salmon was convicted of embezzlement.
Now, she faces 11 counts of obtaining money by false pretense and one count of violation of the Oklahoma Producer License Act.
Investigators from the Oklahoma Insurance Department say Salmon never stopped working as an agent despite having her license revoked. Instead, she's accused of collecting more than $150,000 in payments and then depositing the money into her personal account.
“It is critically important to protect every insurance-buying consumer in the state of Oklahoma,” Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak says. “This is a particularly egregious case and I compliment the OID’s Anti-Fraud Unit for, once again, putting a stop to Ms. Salmon’s scheme. I also want to thank the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and the Tulsa Police Department for its help on this case.”
She's currently in the Tulsa County Jail.
