Today’s story is about an insurance agent who committed insurance fraud. Apparently, a Farmers Insurance agent was taking premium and not sending it to the company. Those insureds then had no policy. OOPS!
This is pretty blatant, but it is not unheard of. Insurance agents occassionally get greedy and take premiums. The insureds lose out since they are the ones who have no policy.
I am all for cracking down on insurance fraud. But the insurance companies need to do a better job of policing their own before they start attacking everyone else. In the last 6 months, we have had an insurance adjuster, and now an insurance agent, busted for fraud. Unbelievable.
