Former Insurance Claims Adjuster In Missouri Sentenced For Embezzling More Than $400K

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on 5/23/13:

A former claims adjuster for Allianz insurance company in O'Fallon was sentenced Thursday to 27 months in federal prison for defrauding the company of more than $400,000 that he diverted to himself.

Brian Behl pleaded guilty in February to mail fraud. After he serves his time, he will be under three years of supervised release.

Federal prosecutors said Behl worked for Allianz for about 10 years until Sept 2012, and the scheme occurred during the final 18 months.


Prosecutors said Behl set up a fictitious company called B&M Salvage Repair and registered a post office box in Illinois in its name, then sent more than $400,000 in supposed reimbursement checks to it, which he then used for personal items such as a car and a motorcycle.
