You may encounter anti-semitism where you don’t expect it.
In the January issue of Angie’s List, New York City New Jersey edition, on p. 15, is an item about an insurance adjuster accused of fraud. (Angie’s List is an organization intended to help people find trustworthy repairmen, doctors, contractors, etc.)
A woman in West Park, Fla., hired Abraham Blumberg, CEO of National Loss Consultants in Miami, to negotiate her claim to fix a leaky roof after a storm.
The insurance company issued a check to Blumberg for $5,000, but the woman was not successful in getting her portion of the money from Blumberg,
Eventually Blumberg pleaded guilty to pocketing more than $360,000 in insurance claims from 82 victims, according to the Florida Department of Financial Services.
He was sentenced to 364 days in jail and 30 years of probation. The state revoked his license.
In case readers didn’t conclude that Blumberg was Jewish, Angie’s List ran a photograph of him.
With a full beard. And wearing a skullcap.
