Charlotte Man Accused of Hail Damage Insurance Claim Fraud

June 30, 2014

A North Carolina man was arrested and charged with 108 charges of obtaining property by false pretense.

After a year-long investigation, North Carolina Department of Insurance criminal investigators allege that Ronald Leonard Pierce was acting as a public adjuster without a license to provide those services for two of his businesses, Clear Choice Construction and Piedmont Disaster Services. Pierce is accused of providing inflated hail damage repair estimates to homeowners and receiving $450,000 in fraudulent claim payments from the insurance companies from 2012 to the beginning of 2013.

Pierce was arrested on June 21 in Mecklenburg County and was placed under a $540,000 bond.
