ERLANGER BUSINESS OWNER UNDER FRAUD INVESTIGATION
Company not authorized to sell insurance in Kentucky
 
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 14, 2007) – Northern Kentucky residents are being alerted that an Erlanger business owner is under investigation for selling bogus auto insurance policies.
According to the Kentucky Office of Insurance (KOI), Michael Fleckinger of Amtrek Two Insurance Company has marketed and sold auto insurance to at least 60 individuals during the past 18 months. The company is not authorized to sell insurance in Kentucky and Fleckinger is not a licensed agent.
“Although the investigation is ongoing, we wanted to warn consumers that coverage purchased through this individual or company is not valid,” said KOI Executive Director Julie Mix McPeak. “These individuals should obtain valid auto insurance as quickly as possible.”
McPeak said KOI is in the process of contacting affected consumers by mail. But she cautioned that the list obtained from the company may not be complete.
Consumers who have purchased an insurance policy with Amtrek Two should contact the KOI Insurance Fraud Investigation division at 502-564-1461 or 800-595-6053, ext. 4446. The e-mail address for inquiries is Gene.Sherrard@ky.gov.
