Hughson woman arrested on 33 charges of insurance fraud

HUGHSON, CA - State and Stanislaus County officials believe they stopped a Hughson woman's four year insurance scam.

On Friday, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced the arrest of Martha Jane Terry, 63, of Hughson Insurance Agency. Terry is charged with 33 felony counts of insurance fraud, including fiduciary theft, embezzlement, and grand theft.

"I was just in shock that she didn't get shut down back in 2008 when I made my complaint," said Brandy Hayes, an alleged victim of Terry's insurance fraud.

Hayes bought a six month car insurance policy from Terry. She said Terry gave her a insurance card that looked authentic and the DMV accepted.

"It looked completely real: all the markings were on it, the name of insurance company, all the right information. The insurance company just had never heard of me," said Hayes.

Hayes said she realized she was scammed when she was in a car accident and had to file a claim.
