Carmel travel agent sentenced to federal prison for wire fraud


INDIANAPOLIS — A woman was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for committing wire fraud while working as a travel insurance employee in Hamilton County, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana .

According to prosecutors, between May 2011 and September 2016, Maria Caceres, 56, of Coral Springs, Florida, submitted 30 fraudulent insurance claims to her employer: Seven Corners in Carmel, Indiana. These claims totaled more than $650,000.

Court documents show that Caceres, along with accomplices, invented false names and purchased insurance policies from Seven Corners.

The group also created fake email addresses on behalf of a hospital in Venezuela and submitted claims to Seven Corners for alleged emergency medical services provided to fictitious people while traveling internationally. Caceres also created fake accounts for these “clients” and fabricated fake documents.

Due to the fraud, Seven Corners paid over $588,000 into accounts controlled by Caceres’ accomplices.

U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young also ordered Caceres to pay more than $496,000.00 in restitution.

She will be supervised by the US Probation Office for a year after her release from federal prison.
