An insurance agency employee in the Zachary area has been issued
a cease and desist order and fine notice for acting as an agent
without a license, misappropriation of insurance premiums and
Shanon K. Brian, 41, was served with a C&D
and $5,000 fine notice by Department of Insurance Fraud Section
today for allegedly acting as an agent without a license, misappropriating
funds and forgery.
It is alleged that while working as a secretary in an insurance
agency, Brian manufactured insurance proof of loss, forged letters
and signatures, made false declaration pages and collected premiums
which she allocated to her own accounts.

to conduct the business of insurance.

insurance related transaction to call the Department of Insurance

not want their names used, they can request that their involvement
be kept confidential.
