Insurance chief Dennis Funa warns public vs scammers using his name for solicitations
Don’t be fooled by these thieves!
The Insurance Commission has released a public advisory to warn the public against a reported scam perpetuated by still-unidentified individuals who are using the name of the agency and of Commissioner Dennis Funa for supposed “office-related activities.”
The requests for money donations are done by the fraudsters via phone calls, texts, e-mail, and even through social media.
“The Insurance Commission and Commissioner Dennis B. Funa has never authorized anyone to solicit or raise funds on its/his behalf nor it has allowed itself/himself to endorse or tolerate any money-making activity for the benefit of the office or any particular individual or group,” the agency said in a statement posted on its Web site.
