It has been brought to our attention that there is a potential  insurance fraud scam occurring in which  various individuals falsely claim to represent our company and to have authority to sell  various insurance products including commercial lines products, general liability coverage for contractors, and workers’ compensation insurance on our behalf.  It appears that these individuals are targeting small business owners such as painting, repair contractors, cleaning services, real estate and others; especially those who have recently started a business and registered for a license with the city they are located in.   They offer the potential victim a very large contract for new business and guaranty future work, as long as the business owner purchases “special insurance’ that only they can provide.  They guarantee a large job that will pay a lot of money and ask the business owner to contact them if they are interested.  They use a link to our company’s website to demonstrate they are a legitimate business.  They will issue you a quote for an annual policy for a premium of approximately $3200 and require you to deposit at least half of the money into a bank account, by either cash or a check – DO NOT DEPOSIT ANY FUNDS INTO THAT ACCOUNT.  Contact your bank to determine whether it is a commercial account or a personal account, as the perpetrators use a personal account.

These individuals are not authorized representatives of Nautilus Insurance Group and they are not licensed insurance agents of our company in any state where we are aware that they are operating and preying on the public.  You can easily verify whether anyone has an insurance agent’s license by contacting your state insurance department by phone or online. 

Additionally we have a link on our site to the agents that do represent us. 

Please also contact your local police department to file a report.
