Re.: Contractor charged with insurance fraud
Joseph D. Sauro (DOB 8/19/70), of Malaga NJ, was charged today (12/4) by the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office with insurance fraud and forgery in connection with the submission of a certificate of insurance needed to obtain work for his business, JD Sauro Plumbing and Heating.
A GCPO investigation determined the certificate submitted to a prospective client was from Sauro’s former insurer, with which he had two policies that had been cancelled. It is alleged that a signature and date on the certificate had been altered and that Sauro made the changes knowing he did not have workers compensation and general liability insurance.
Sauro was processed at GCPO offices and released pending a 2/1/18 first appearance in court.
