What are the fraud consequences for not having auto insurance and saying you do?

I do not have insurance, however I told a police officer that I did and gave him someone else's information.

The rules for this vary from state to state. However, generally speaking, lying to a police officer is a crime that is much more serious than not having insurance. In some states, it can even be a felony. Sadly, you have already done the action and really can't do anything to cure it.

Driving without insurance is a ticket in all states and can result in losing the car in some states. Lying to a police officer can land you in jail.
