A former insurance producer was arrested and issued a cease and desist order today
for allegedly misappropriating insurance funds, Commissioner of Insurance Robert
Wooley has announced.
Gordon Mark Scallan, 39, was arrested by the State Police Fraud Unit and booked
into the Avoyelles Parish Jail on charges of forgery, unfair trade practices and
theft. At the same time, Department of Insurance Fraud Unit investigators served
Scallan with a cease and desist order and summary suspension of his license. The
c&d states that he misappropriated funds in the amount of $23,980.84, which
he received from a client for the purchase of two life insurance policies.

from May 23, 1993, until todays action. Department records list his address
as P.O. Box 342, Mansura.
