Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal and the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor announced that four Mercer County men and six of their associated businesses were charged today with first-degree conspiracy and money laundering in connection with a bank scheme involving the deposit of nearly $1.4 million in phony or forged checks related to insurance claims. Trenton residents Wayne M. Bessant, Reyshauwn Barlow, Rayshawn Kelly, and Rashon Smith and their associated companies — Hoffman Restoration, LLC; Best Way Restoration, LLC; Wayne Enterprises Since 1981; Fast Cash Investments, LLC; JLaw & Investors, LLC; and Group of LJNMB&W, LLC — were charged in an indictment handed by a state Grand Jury in Trenton today. The defendants allegedly conspired in a scheme to set up several phony bank accounts in the name of People’s Property Adjusters (“PPA”), a West Deptford company that assists insureds in submitting claims against homeowner insurance policies.
