A caller posing as a staff member of the Connecticut Insurance Department has been trying to steal people's insurance information, according to the department. Two such incidents have occurred this week.
The Connecticut Insurance Department does not make unsolicited calls for insurance information and Insurance Commissioner Katherine L. Wade cautions individuals to be wary of these calls.
“Always be safe and never give out personal or financial information without verifying who the caller is,” Wade said in a statement. “If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the department or your local law enforcement agency.”
