RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Joanne Tealoff, the owner of Eclipse Recreational Vehicles, pleaded not guilty last week to dozens of counts of insurance fraud based on accusations she and two others cheated insurance companies out of workers’ compensation insurance payments based on employees’ injuries and job classifications, the Press Enterprise reported.
She was arrested following an investigation involving the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, the California Department of Insurance, the California Employment Development Department and the Franchise Tax Board, the paper reported.
Tealoff is charged with two counts of making a false statement to reduce workers’ comp insurance premiums and 50 counts of failure to disclose facts related to insurance benefits. Warrants have been issued for her co-defendants, Syliva Leon and David Armando Torres.
