What can be done regarding fraud and a life insurance policy?
Question Details: Someone in my family passed leaving an insurance policy for her kids and myself. She did not want her mother to know, however the funeral home not only called but went to the home of the mother and gave her the information. The mother was not, I repeat, was not on this policy as a beneficiary. The daughter who passed did not leave the mother anything. In fact, she obtained an attorney to draw up a Will and after she passed a cousin and the mother drew up fraudulent papers playing everything was left to the mother but which is totally separate from this policy. The mother and cousin, who works for another company, has called this policy holding company faking that they are the agents and wants to change the beneficiary and obtaining info, lying that they're another insurance agent. What can we do? This is so beyond anything I've ever seen.
Contact both the local police and the state attorney general's office; also the state agency regulating insurers. This is criminal and needs to be treated as a criminal act; it therefore needs to be reported to law enforcement and the other appropriate authorities.
