Miami man charged in fraud scheme against Citizens insurance

A Miami man has been charged with bilking South Florida’s largest insurer out of nearly $100,000 with the type of water damage claims fraud that officials warn will spur years of rate hikes without new state laws.

According to a news release from the state Department of Financial Services, Julian Garcia-Selleck acted as an unlicensed public insurance adjuster between March 2012 and January 2016 when he met with homeowners seeking help in handling their insurance claims against state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp.
