Man’s Brother Dies Twice in Life Insurance Fraud Scheme

Over the course of fourteen months beginning in December 2016, Kellerman Jason Zheng took out at least twenty-four life insurance policies in his brother’s name with both Zheng and his parents listed as beneficiaries. His brother, however, died in April 2015 while on a trip to China. To assist with his ruse, Zheng opened and used bank accounts in his brother’s name and renewed his brother’s driver’s license. He ran into trouble when he used a false Chinese death certificate, which indicated his brother died in August 2018, to submit over five-million-dollars in life insurance claims.
