Wyatt Green of Storm Restoration Specialists charged with forgery, grand theft
According to News4Jax, “a Jacksonville contractor accused of forging signatures of homeowners and mortgage lenders in order to pocket insurance checks told the I-TEAM, “I take full responsibility for any wrongdoing that I’ve done.”
News4Jax confronted Wyatt Green of Storm Restoration Specialists LLC at his business off Sunbeam Road on Tuesday after state investigators accused him of taking $40,000 in an insurance fraud scheme, charging him with forgery, organized scheme to defraud and grand theft.
Investigators said employees of Green also admitted to allegedly forging customer signatures on construction documents required by counties and municipalities. In some cases, construction work was never completed, and in others, the work never even began.”
This is not the first, and it is certainly not the last time we will have to report on Insurance Fraud.
Over the past few years, we have written a lot about the Florida roofing scams and the Assignment of Benefits abuse that continues to plague homeowners.
We care about our local communities and want to protect our neighbors, friends, and clients from these criminals. A growing number of individuals are trying to profit from unsuspecting homeowners. Unfortunately, Florida insurance scams continue.
Plain and simple… Floridians need to fight!
Some shady contractors and lawyers who advertise on TV are teaming up to push Assignment of Benefits (AOB) schemes on Florida consumers. They radically inflate repair costs to line their pockets and leave Floridians stuck with the bill.
