My home burnt to the ground, deemed electrical fire. While in the hospital, my agent allowed a couple to befriend my 83 year old mother and convinced her I burned the house down and they were out for her best interests. The adjuster was told by my agent it was my mothers house and her policy, knowing that she lived elsewhere and never met her and I had been with him since 96 and stayed with him when I purchased the second home in 2006. The appraisals I had done several years earlier were lost, my address and whereabouts unknown, my mothers name, phone and address were changed to their address and it took several months and hiring a lawyer to get my checks back and other various documents. Every rule in the book has been broken and even after almost 3 years, I still have no reprieve. The story is one that Im sure is the first of its kind. I need help!
