A man has been charged with insurance fraud and theft by deception in a bogus insurance claim.

Alexander Goldinsky, 57, of Randolph, was charged with one count of insurance fraud in the third degree and one count of theft by deception in the third degree for fraudulently filing an insurance claim in a fake slip and fall he orchestrated at a company in Woodbridge, according to information provided by Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey.

The prosecution of insurance fraud is part of the Attorney General’s statewide insurance fraud crackdown through its County Prosecutor Insurance Fraud Reimbursement Program.

Goldinsky is an independent contractor who operates under the company name All Gold Industries. When the incident occurred Goldinsky was subcontracted to perform work at a company in Woodbridge.

He was charged on Jan. 15 following an investigation by Detective Sean Sullivan of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. It was determined that between Sept. 1 and Nov. 1, 2018, Goldinsky reportedly filed a false insurance claim for the ambulance service and treatment he received at a local hospital for injuries he claimed he sustained at a business located in Woodbridge, according to the statement.

The investigation revealed that Goldinsky allegedly purposely threw the ice on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace, placed himself on the ground, and waited until he was discovered, according to the statement.

Goldinsky was released on a summons and his initial court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 7 in New Brunswick Superior Court.

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information should call Sullivan at 732-745-4060.
