Carlos Vandarryl Boston (56) was served by Department of Insurance Fraud
Section Investigators today with a $5,000 fine notice. Boston is alleged
to have created and issued a fraudulent identification card to a customer
to submit to the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles as proof of insurance.
The DMV contacted the insurance company listed on the card and was advised
that the customer was not covered by them during the time in question.
records show that Boston was issued a Life Insurance and Accident & Health
license in October 1997, a Property & Casualty and Vehicle Physical Damage
license in July 2006, and a Variable Contracts license in April 2007. All
licenses are currently valid.
Boston has 30 days from time of service to pay the $5,000 fine or his licenses
will be suspended until the fine is paid. He also has 30 days from today
to file a written demand for an administrative hearing to contest this action
taken by the Department of Insurance.
Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance
related transaction to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Section at
225-342-4956 or 1-800-259-5300. If callers do not want their names used,
they can request that their involvement be kept confidential.
