Michigan Regulators Say Fake Auto Insurance Sold in Metro Detroit

November 15, 2012

The Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation (OFIR) recently announced that some Detroit-area drivers may have unknowingly purchased fraudulent automobile insurance policies from unlicensed insurance agent.

According to the OFIR, Shaker Uddin Sadeak, through an unlicensed insurance agency named Al Baraka Enterprise in Southfield, was selling bogus certificates purporting to have coverage through a legitimate insurance company.

A concerned Detroit-area driver who purchased insurance from Sadeak notified OFIR after discovering misspellings and other discrepancies on an insurance certificate.

OFIR ordered Sadeak and Al Baraka to cease and desist from conducting unlicensed and fraudulent insurance activity, and handed the results of its investigation over to law enforcement agencies.

A copy of OFIR’s cease and desist order can also be found on OFIR’s website.

    Fortunately, most criminals aren't too smart. In this case, the guy should have at least learned how to spell before he decided to print false insurance certificates.

    Photoshop makes ID card manufacturing pretty easy. Its getting worse by the day. Just find a buddy with a current ID card and scan it. Then work your magic with Photoshop.
