Protecting Yourself Against Insurance Scams
Insurance scams can take many forms. Here are a few tips on how to avoid them:
- Beware of any email message that claims to be from your insurance company and that asks you to confirm or give certain personal information. This could be a scam to obtain information about your personal finances and could lead to identity theft.
- Do not pay your premiums through a money transfer or money wiring service. This is not a normal practice and could be a scam to get you to buy fake insurance.
