WHAT IS A TITLE AGENT?
A title insurance agent is a stock corporation or limited liability company authorized by a title insurer to solicit insurance and collect premiums for insurance that covers owners of real property or others with interest in the real property against loss or damage suffered by liens, encumbrances on, defects in or unmarketability of the title to the property. ARS § 20-1562.
We are aware of a phishing scam targeting insurance professionals claiming that the National Association of Insurance Commissioners received a complaint that the professional submitted a falsified claim. This fraudulent email displays the NAIC and CIPR logos, can originate from what appears to be an naic.org or gmail.com email account, and instructs the recipient to click on a link to download the complaint notification.
Certain antivirus products will detect this as a malicious email. If you receive a similar email and have any concerns, contact the NAIC Service Desk at (816) 783-8500 or [email protected].
