Michigan man charged in BP oil spill scam

A Michigan man who claimed the BP oil spill harmed sales at his ice-cream stand in Florida has been charged with fraud after investigators found the business never existed.

Kevin Hall of Davison was released on bond Wednesday during his first appearance in federal court in Flint.

In a court filing, investigators say Hall filed a claim for $9,000 in lost revenue from his ice cream business in Pensacola, Fla., 1,000 miles away. He listed an address at a resort called Portofino Spa. Resort officials say there is no K & B Ice Cream there.

A message seeking comment was left for Hall’s lawyer.

There is a BP claims office making payments to businesses that suffered because of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
