Questionable Checks Should Be Verified or Reported

The California Department of Insurance (CDI) today announced that some checks bearing the name of the Department and purportedly signed by the Insurance Commissioner are fraudulent.

Recently, checks have been circulated and presented as a “payment” or “refund” from the CDI; however, the Department does not issue checks such as these and is warning consumers and businesses to be on alert if they are presented with a check of this type.

Investigators report that the fraudulent checks have been found in Southern California and five other states, with values between $2,000 and $5,000.

Any consumer or business that questions the validity of a check, or persons with information about this fraudulent activity, should contact the CDI at (909) 919-2200.
