From the Department of Justice:
Suzanne Gannon-Anderson, 51, Dodgeville, Wis., is charged with six counts of wire fraud.
The indictment alleges that from May 2007 through April 2008, she devised a scheme to defraud insurance customers, her employer Associated Insurance Agency, Inc. (AIA) of McFarland, Wis., and premium finance lenders.
The indictment alleges that Gannon-Anderson sold her ownership interest in SGA Insurance Services LLC, operating in Dodgeville, to AIA in May 2007.
The indictment further alleges that she created false premium finance loan applications on behalf of customers who did not request or authorize financing applications, and on behalf of false customer identities she had created.
It is alleged that she directed the premium finance companies to deposit the proceeds of the loans into her personal operating account, and that she paid her personal expenses, credit card payments, car payments and wrote checks for personal purchases from her personal operating account.
If convicted, Gannon-Anderson faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison on each count.
The charges against her are the result of an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The prosecution of this case has been assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert A. Anderson.
