Two Wanted in Georgia After Creating Fake Insurance Company

January 13, 2022

Two women have been charged with insurance fraud in North Carolina after car crashes, and three men and a woman in Georgia are wanted for other types of fraud, including the creation of a fake insurance company.

The Georgia insurance commissioner said that arrest warrants had been issued for Deamarkis Barber, 31, of Conyers. The man created a fictitious company called Dirt-Cheap Insurance, then had more than eight people pay him through the Cash App on smartphones, Commissioner John King said in a news release.

Authorities also are looking for Kamaria Berry, 28, for allegedly facilitating the theft and exchange of funds.

A warrant also has been issued, King’s office said, for Christopher Jackson, 29, of Stockbridge, for falsely claiming that items were stolen from his car. In his claim to Farmers Insurance in 2021, Jackson allegedly submitted fraudulent receipts for $14,963 worth of items.

And a roofer who never finished the job but billed an insurance company also is on the lam, King said.

A warrant has been for Jarred Hosch, 38, of Ringgold, after he was hired to replace a roof in Whitfield County. He never finished the work and never intended to, King said, but sent an invoice to the homeowner’s insurer. The incomplete roof work caused further damage to the house.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call the Insurance Department’s Investigations Division at 404-463-6363.

In North Carolina, two women were charged in separate incidents involving automobiles.

Yolanda Edmonds, 40, of Oxford, let her auto insurance policy lapse last year. After a December accident, her Chevrolet was declared a total loss, but Edmonds falsely claimed that her policy had been reinstated, according to the state Department of Insurance and a local news report.

In Raleigh, Darihana Mejia, 32, told her insurer that her Ford Explorer was damaged in an accident. But authorities determined that the same damage had previously been claimed with another insurance company and was never repaired, officials said.

Last week, two other people were arrested for claiming injuries from an auto accident.

The North Carolina Insurance Department said in a news release that Timira Chiquita Glaspy, 31, and Dandre Lamar Morrison, 33, were both charged with felony insurance fraud and misdemeanor making false statements on applications for insurance.

Special agents with the department accused Morrison and Glaspy of telling insurance claim investigators with a Winston-Salem-based company that Glaspy was injured in a collision while driving her vehicle in May. Criminal summonses say Glaspy was not in her vehicle at the time and couldn’t have been injured, according to news reports.

Glaspy and Morrison were served with criminal summonses on Dec. 16.
