New Jersey Insurance Adjuster Gets Prison for Role in Fraud Scheme

January 12, 2015

The owner of an insurance adjusting company is headed to federal prison for his role in a scheme to defraud the New Jersey Turnpike Authority and several insurers out of at least $900,000.

Federal prosecutors say 55-year-old Robert Napolitano, of Clifton, recently received a 32-month prison term. He also will have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed.

Prosecutors say Napolitano instructed insurers whose motorists had damaged turnpike property to send checks made out to his firm, Dawn to Dusk. But instead of forwarding the money to the state authority, he kept some or all of it and gave a share to Gerardo Blasi, a former turnpike authority claims manager.

Blasi also pleaded guilty in the case and received a 45-month prison term last November.
