North Carolina Agent Charged with Embezzlement

February 5, 2015

Insurance agent Amneris Deleon, of Wilmington, N.C., was arrested and charged with one count each of embezzlement by an insurance agent and accessing a computer to defraud or obtain property.

Department of Insurance criminal investigators accuse Deleon—the owner and operator of ADE Multiservice in Wilmington—of collecting approximately $1,200 from a customer over the course of eight months for a worker’s compensation policy that did not exist. Investigators allege that Deleon created a fraudulent document to make it appear as if a valid policy existed.

Deleon was arrested on Jan. 30 in New Hanover County and released on a $2,500 bond.

The Department of Insurance employs 20 sworn state law enforcement officers dedicated to investigating and prosecuting claims of insurance and bail bonding fraud.
