The charges stem from Geczi’s work as an agent for American Senior Benefits, where he changed bank account information from his employer to his personal account, pocketing more than $74,000 in commission payments from a Columbus, Georgia-based Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield office, according to the press release.
Geczi was working in Maine at the time of the crime, according to the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner.
Insurance fraud is a felony punishable by imprisonment for 2 to 10 years, or by a fine of up to $10,000, or both in Georgia.
