North Carolina Body Shop Owner Charged with Insurance Fraud

The Gaston County man is accused of accepting insurance payments to use new parts on a repair, but not doing so.


A Gaston County, NC, man faces felony charges of insurance fraud, North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey announced.

Christopher Mark Rogers, 51, of Dallas, NC, is accused of compromising vehicle repair integrity. Rogers, who owns a body shop in Iredell County, allegedly engaged in deceptive practices by failing to use new parts for vehicle repairs despite receiving payments from National General Insurance Co. to do so. The alleged offense happened May 31, 2023.

Causey encourages North Carolinians to help keep insurance premiums low by reporting suspicious fraud.

“Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime,” Causey said. “It hits all of us in the pocket through higher premiums.”

Anyone who suspects insurance fraud or other white-collar crimes should report it anonymously by calling the N.C. Department of Insurance Criminal Investigations Division at 919-807-6840 or toll free from anywhere in North Carolina at 888-680-7684.
