Background

Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (DAO) Insurance Fraud Unit arrested Angel Feliciano, Janice Rosario, Ana Torres, Lorenzo Santell , and Rudolph Savage and charged them with Insurance Fraud and Forgery. The DAO received a referral from the Pennsylvania Insurance Fraud Prevention Authority about posts on Facebook by Lorenzo Santell, who is not a licensed insurance agent, about selling fake financial responsibility cards.

Detectives from the Insurance Fraud Unit went to Santell’s home and found two vehicles in front of his home registered to Santell and Torres with fake financial responsibility cards from American Independent Insurance Company. Detectives also found the title history of 11 vehicles purchased by Mr. Santell between May 16, 2016, and March 24, 2017, were registered with fake insurance financial responsibility cards from various insurers. Further investigation confirmed the identities of the defendants after interviewing several tag agents and confirming that the licenses used to register the vehicles matched the defendants. It also confirmed that the financial responsibility cards presented by each of the defendants were fraudulent, and a copy of the cards was obtained from the tag agency with obvious spelling errors. For example, the heading of each of the cards misspelled responsibility as “RESPOSIBILITY”.

The above defendants were arrested between the months of November and December 2017.   They are next listed to appear for a status listing in courtroom 406 on February 2, 2018 at the Criminal Justice Center.
