Fake healthinsurance entitytargets Ohioans
COLUMBUS - OhioLieutenant Governor andInsurance Director MaryTaylor has issued a cease anddesist order to United StatesContractors Trust (USCT) forselling fictitious health insur-ance coverage to at least fourOhioans. USCT is not licensedto sell insurance in Ohio andhas also recently been orderedto stop its unauthorizedinsurance business in SouthCarolina, North Carolina,Vermont, Florida and Maine.“Our mission at theDepartment is to protectOhioans and take action againstthose who prey on innocent con-sumers,” Taylor said. “We urgeOhio consumers with informa-tion about this scam to contactthe Department immediately.”USCT is targeting peopleover the Internet with pre-exist-ing health conditions that areexperiencing difficulty findinginsurance. Desperate to secureindividual or family healthinsurance, the Ohioans eagerlycompleted contact informationforms on innocuous-lookingwebsites. The victims were thencalled by a USCT representa-tive and eventually signed-upfor what they thought was insur-ance. The victims agreed to havethe monthly premium, rangingfrom $200 to $550, debited fromtheir bank accounts.The victims’ first few claimswere paid but thereafter theybegan to receive unpaid medi-cal bills and calls from medi-cal providers explaining theywere having difficulty pro-cessing the claim with USCT.When contacted by the victimsand medical providers, USCTblamed the mix-up on comput-er problems and explained thematter would be resolved soon.This back and forth continuedfor months while money con-tinued to be withdrawn fromthe victims’ checking accounts.The Ohio Department of Insurance advises potentialvictims of this scam to take thefollowing immediate steps:Contact your bank and havethe automatic premium with-drawals stopped. Then call theDepartment’s fraud hotline at1-800-686-1527.Avoiding Health InsuranceScams:• Fake insurance companiesand dishonest people often tryto sell coverage that is usu-ally difficult to secure and sellpolicies that are significantlycheaper. If it seems too good tobe true, it usually is.• Ask if the company andperson representing the prod-uct are licensed in Ohio. Thenconfirm the license status atwww.insurance.ohio.gov andby calling 1-800-686-1526.• Be cautious if there are notmany questions about your health.Ask your own hard questionsabout the coverage and company.• Be mindful that scammerswill make marketing materials,letterhead and websites appearlegitimate, including copyingand using official documen-tation from real companies.Always carefully read andscrutinize all materials, includ-ing information on websites.• Never provide your check-ing account number to haveyour premiums automaticallydeducted unless you are deal-ing with a reputable company.Be suspicious if you are beingpressured into using the directdeposit payment method.If you believe you’ve beenvictimized by this scam, call theDepartment’s fraud hotline at1-800-686-1527.
