Georgia’s insurance commissioner is warning consumers to avoid Dirt-Cheap Insurance, an unlicensed outfit he says is selling fraudulent policies in the state.
Three people associated with Dirt-Cheap, Deamarkis Barber, Oluwatosin Oyediran, and Kamaria Berry, have been charged or sought in connection with the alleged scams, Commissioner John King said in a bulletin Wednesday.
“These individuals sell illegitimate policies to their victims, who are instructed to pay insurance premiums through money transfer services such as CashApp,” the statement said.
Barber was recently charged with insurance fraud and theft after defrauding victims out of $1,200. The victims were unaware of the alleged fraud until police stopped them, King said.
King encourages consumers to use the office’s license verification tool to check the credentials of insurance salespeople.
