North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Tracie Michelle Famber, 59, of 1220 Echo Glen Road, Charlotte, and Terrance Antoine Hunter, 40, of 13505 Bryton Gap Blvd., Huntersville. Both were charged with four counts of felony embezzlement.
According to arrest warrants, the two embezzled insurance payments totaling $47,106.06 from four clients.
Special agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Famber, a public adjuster, and her son, Hunter, a contractor, of working together to obtain the insurance payments without repairing the clients’ roofs.
The offenses occurred on July 13, 2022.
Following their arrest, both were released on a written promise to appear in court.
Commissioner Causey encourages North Carolinians to help keep insurance premiums low by reporting suspicious activity.
