It is unlikely that you would eat a romantic dinner with a person who claimed to have stolen your car.
But that's what investigators in Cook County, Illinois did in a bizarre insurance fraud involving a former city of Chicago alderman, his love interest, an Audi, and a theft car report.
Previously Proco & # 39; Joe & # 39; Moreno has been charged with false allegations that he reported his luxury car stolen after lent it to his girlfriend and plans to take her to
Prosecutors reported that in January, Moreno urged a woman that he met his home and encouraged her To borrow the car, even send a text after she drove away to remind her not to smoke in the car.
The next day, he made two calls: one to report the car stolen and another to make dinner plans with the woman. He later left an insurance claim and demanded that the car be stolen and in a follow-up call to his insurer who was recorded, forwarded the story that he had left his key in the car and must have left his garage door open or someone encrypted a signal to automatically open the overport, according to news report.
