New Orleans/Metairie insurance agent shut down, Commissioner
Released: May 21, 2007
A New Orleans/Metairie insurance agent was issued a cease and desist order and summary
suspension of her license this morning for alleged misappropriation of insurance
Quiana Natosha Jones, 28, was served by Department of Insurance Fraud Section Investigators
with the papers suspending her right to engage in the business of insurance. The
suspension, served at her residence in New Orleans, was effective immediately.
The Department of Insurance action stemmed from a review of customer payment account
transactions which revealed two instances in which, allegedly, Jones illegally and
without authorization applied funds meant for two customer policies to her own personal
Department records show that Jones held a license to sell life and annuity insurance
from July 2003 until today's action.
Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who have any questions regarding policies Jones
sold or serviced to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Section 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.
