Three people have been charged with stealing more than $300,000 from homeowners in an alleged insurance scam. PropertySpecial Investigations
The owner of Ace Public Adjusters in Philadelphia, 56-year-old Anthony J. Hoffman, and his two employees, 35-year-old Deborah L. Felix and 35-year-old Hartman J. Wismer, are accused of defrauding more than 30 people, many of which were elderly.
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said Wednesday the trio signed contracts to represent the victims during their insurance claim process but instead of properly overseeing the process and giving homeowners what was due to them, they kept the money for themselves.
Hoffman owned Ace and employed his stepdaughter, Felix, as an office manager and Wismer, Felixs fiancé, as a public adjuster.
