Investigators say between January 2019 and December 2022, she submitted 48 claims under her pet’s health insurance and told them her dog went to several veterinarians in Atlanta.
The warrants charged Lindley with 48 counts of insurance fraud and forgery.
They later learned that he had changed the procedure dates and costs on his invoices, including visits that never took place. In total, he received about $45,000 for those claims.
He is also accused of running a campaign on an online crowdfunding website to solicit donations from sympathizers.
Warrants were issued against him on January 10. He has not been detained yet.
