Arizona Insurance Authorities Looking into 20 Additional Annuities Sold by Guess
Yet another 20 annuities sold by Guess are currently being reviewed, and it is yet to be determined how many were sold to customers and how many were fictitious, according to Arizona Department of Insurance documents currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
The insurance companies paid her the commissions after receiving the policies and checks from investors, but some checks were returned from accounts with insufficient funds, the Department of Insurance said.
Guess, who received her Arizona insurance license in April, was arrested on reported suspicion of two counts of fraudulent schemes, two counts of theft of property obtained by misrepresentation, two counts of forgery and two counts of aggravated taking the identity or another person or entity, according to the Department of Insurance.
