Time may be gold, but a man in Washington could get more than an application from him, claiming he was “lost” after being accused of making false insurance claims on a luxury Rolex timepiece.
Christopher Mitchell of Seattle was charged with felony criminal mischief for filing a false insurance claim for a ক্স 14,753 Rolex watch after an investigation by Washington Insurance Commissioner Mike Credler’s Criminal Investigation Unit (CIU).
According to the CIU, Mitchell bought a “valuable personal property” insurance rider from the USA in August 2019. The policy was to cover his Rolex submarine, which he bought in 2018 for, 14,753. On August 07, 2020, almost a year after buying Ryder, Mitchell filed a lawsuit in the USA claiming that he lost the watch three days ago when he woke up in Washington Lake.
But a USA investigator revealed evidence that Mitchell sold his watch to a jewelry store, Bellevue Rare Coins, in August, for 750 – just 21 days after the claim was made. The USAA denied the claim and referred the case to the CIU.
A statement from the Insurance Commissioner’s Washington office said Mitchell was scheduled to appear in court on October 25, 2021.
