Jean Mari Lindor was found guilty of filing more than 400 fake damage claims, The Miami Herald reported Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Homestead man faces a long prison sentence after being found guilty in federal court in Miami of 40 counts of fraud, identity theft and other charges.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Watts-Fitzgerald said Lindor charged a $300 fee to file fraudulent claims for low-income workers in South Florida.
The claims were paid by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, which BP set up under federal government supervision after the Deepwater Horizon spill.
