West Monroe Agent Issued Cease and Desist Order, License Revocation and Fine Notices
A West Monroe agent was served by Department of Insurance Fraud Section Investigators today with a cease and desist order, license revocation and fine notice for alleged misappropriation.
Jennifer Dianne Jerkins, 30, was served by the Department of Insurance Fraud Section Investigators today with a cease and desist order, license revocation and $5,000 fine notice.
Jerkins was terminated from an insurance company in 2009 for allegedly misappropriating $1,800 in premiums. She also allegedly misappropriated approximately $1,200 from a previous employer.
Department records show that Jerkins was issued a Property and Casualty license in March 2001, which was valid until being summarily suspended today. Records show she also held a Life, Accident and Health license from April 2001 through April 2010. Her Property and Casualty license will be revoked in 30 days unless she requests a hearing with the Department of Insurance to contest the regulatory action taken against her.
Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance related transaction to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Section at 225-342-4956 or 1-800-259-5300. If callers do not want their names used, they can request that their involvement be kept confidential.
