Florida’s Department of Law Enforcement arrested eight people for posing as reporters to illegally obtain traffic accident reports from police departments in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties. A Florida law, aimed at insurance fraud schemes, restricts access for 60 days following an accident. The information was being used to solicit victims to go to medical clinics and auto body shops to collect money on fraudulent claims. (3-30-05)
