The Regulation of Public Adjusters – 4

Violation of any of the provisions of the Public Adjuster Act can be punished either as a misdemeanor, or if he or she falsifies his or her fingerprints or photographs which are required for the license, as a felony. The California statutes referred to above were enacted because of abuses by some  unscrupulous public adjusters who were known to be at the scene of a fire before the fire department, who would sign up clients while the house was burning, who would sell their services interminably until the early morning hours, and who would make false promises about the services they could give.
