license, Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon announces
Released: May 18, 2006
Evangeline - An Evangeline producer was issued a cease and desist order and summary
suspension of her insurance license for alleged forgery and misappropriation of
Pamela Kate Blackwell-Hanks (a/k/a Pam or Pamela Blackwell, a/k/a Pamela B. Farrell,
a/k/a Pamela C. Trahan and a/k/a Pamela Kate Cart), 51, was served with a c&d
and summary suspension of her license today by Department of Insurance Fraud Unit
Investigators. Todays action results after the Department of Insurance Fraud
Section received complaints against Blackwell-Hanks alleging she had forged and
altered insurance documents. She is also alleged to have received premium payments
which she did not properly remit to authorized insurance companies, and to have
conducted the business of insurance with an unauthorized insurance entity. Previously,
Blackwell-Hanks was found to have participated in the solicitation of insurance
fraud in Louisiana's 15th Judicial District Court.
Department records list her residence address as 315 Bluff Loop, Evangeline, and
her mailing address as P.O. Box 72, Evangeline. Records show Blackwell-Hanks held
a Life, Health & Accident license from March 1988 until May 1, 2006.
Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance-related
transaction to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Unit at 225-342-4956 or 1-800-259-5300.
If callers dont want their names used, they can request that their involvement
be kept confidential.
