The Illinois Department of Insurance is alerting consumers that David Griffith Morrow of Morrow Insurance of Decatur is continuing to act as an insurance producer although his license was revoked effective June 8, 2012.
The department said it has received receiving numerous calls from consumers, mostly of Decatur, about the illegal activity and has referred the case to the attorney general’s office.
The revocation has been reported to the Regulatory Information Retrieval System (RIRS) database and other states are notified through that database. Consumers who have been doing business with Morrow or have a policy issued by Morrow Insurance should immediately seek assistance about their life, health, fire or casualty insurance coverage, the department noted.
Morrow’s license revocation was part of the monthly disciplinary report issued on July 31, 2012:
Morrow Insurance and David Griffith Morrow, Decatur – The business entity and insurance producer licenses revoked effective June 8, 2012. Morrow Insurance and Mr. Morrow had been licensed to sell life, health, fire and casualty insurance since April 30, 2003 and February 3, 2003, respectively. The licenses were revoked as a result of an investigation, which revealed the issuance of a fraudulent certificate of insurance, a fraudulent insurance binder, fraudulent auto insurance cards to consumers, misappropriation of fiduciary monies, and record keeping violations in the Premium Fund Trust Account (PFTA.) The Order of Revocation includes a $28,500 civil penalty.
