NJ Woman Pleads Guilty To Theft By Deception For Pilfering $40K+ From Two Homeowners By Falsely Posing As Rep For Home Improvement Outfits & Pocketing Upfront Deposits For Repair Work

From the Office of the New Jersey Attorney General:
  • Acting Attorney General Robert Lougy and the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor (OIFP) announced that a woman pleaded guilty [] to stealing more than $40,000 from two home improvement customers, including an elderly woman who hired her to repair roof damage caused by Superstorm Sandy.

    Dorian Leigh Dammer, 56, whose last known address was in Easton, Pennsylvania pleaded guilty to two counts of theft by deception in the third degree in a hearing before Superior Court Judge Robert B. Reed in Somerset County.

    Under the terms of the plea agreement, Dammer agreed to pay a total of $37,500 in restitution to the two homeowners. Additionally, the State will recommend a probationary sentence when Dammer is sentenced. Her sentence is scheduled for August 25, 2016.

    In pleading guilty, Dammer admitted that on two occasions she stole money from homeowners by posing as a representative authorized to bid jobs for two improvement companies that in reality she didn’t work for.

    Dammer admitted that in October 2013 she stole money from a Bridgewater widow who had hired her to repair roof damage caused by Superstorm Sandy. Dammer admitted she posed as an employee of Vanguard Construction and cashed three checks totaling $28,770 but never had the repairs done.

    Dammer also admitted that in December 2015, she posed as an employee of Majestic Exteriors to solicit a job to install windows in a Bridgewater home. Dammer admitted she cashed three checks totaling $15,000 but never had the work done.
