Released: May 23, 2005
A Grant Parish insurance producer was arrested and issued a cease and desist order
today for allegedly misappropriating insurance funds, Commissioner of Insurance
Robert Wooley has announced.
The Grant Parish Sheriffs office arrested Charles David Daniel (51) on 20
counts of bank fraud. Department of Insurance Fraud Unit investigators served Daniel
with a cease & desist order and summary suspension of his license when he was
extradited to Rapides Parish Jail in Alexandria.
Mr. Daniel, a debit agent, was responsible for securing life insurance for a client
in Deville whose monthly premium payment was automatically drafted from a checking
account. Daniel allegedly gained access to the clients account number and
caused the bank to transfer approximately $650 from the account to various entities
to which Daniel owed debts.
Department of Insurance records show that Daniel held a life and health insurance
license from May 2000 until todays action. His address is listed as 21459
Highway 167 Lot 5, Dry Prong, LA.
Wooley urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance-related transaction to
call the Department of Insurance Fraud Unit at 225-342-4956. If callers dont
want their names used, they can request that their involvement be kept confidential.
