Q: Is it legal in New Jersey for an insurance company to remove the mortgage company's name from the scope of loss?

This is the second scope of loss on the same property. The first one was sent to the mortgage company and repairs were done. The second scope of loss was never reported to the mortgage company and the contractors took the money and left the state. And the home was never repaired fully.

Not sure what your question is you may want to repost. But if the question is can they still charge you after they let you go, that would be yes as most criminal charges have a 1 or 5 year statute of limitations.
