Mount Olive insurance agent facing fraud charges

MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. — A Mount Olive insurance agent is accused of using his clients’ personal information to get bigger commissions, authorities said Tuesday.

The North Carolina Department of Insurance said Manargo Victor Boykin, 52, of the 600 block of N.C. Highway West, used driver’s license numbers and dates of birth from several clients to write auto insurance coverage for other clients so they could obtain better rates.

Boykin, who worked for Sentry Insurance Company, received about $55,000 in commission from the fraudulent applications between 2010 and 2014, authorities said.
