Samiha Guirguis, 59, was charged with insurance fraud Thursday, marking the third time she has been accused in a fur-related fraud in 11 years, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

In 2005, Guirguis put a mink coat in a storage facility in King of Prussia and was given a receipt indicating the coat was worth $1,000. She came back four years later and claimed the coat the company gave to her was not hers although her name was monogrammed inside.

She claimed the coat she put in the storage facility was worth $10,000 and filed a claim for the coat under her homeowner's policy. Guirguis attempted to run the same alleged scam on a different storage facility in 2001.

Guirguis has been charged with forgery, insurance fraud and theft.
