La. Dept Shuts Down Second Blaisdell/Clarius Agency Partner for Reportedly Selling Bogus Insurance

March 28, 2003

Louisiana’s Department of Insurance Fraud Unit investigators served a cease and desist and summary suspension order to Vimmi Inabnet Clarius of Pineville, prohibiting her from conducting any kind of insurance business in Louisiana, acting Insurance Commissioner J. Robert Wooley announced.

Evidence presented to the Department of Insurance showed that Clarius allegedly misappropriated premium payments and issued bogus proofs of insurance statements to a number of individuals during the time she was a partner in the Blaisdell Clarius Insurance Agency in Alexandria. On several occasions, Clarius allegedly collected payments for insurance and pocketed the money while issuing a written statement saying there was insurance coverage with the designated insurance company.

Department of Insurance records show that Clarius has held a Property and Casualty insurance license with the Department of Insurance since 1993. However, the charges that prompted action stem from the time Clarius was at the Blaisdell Clarius Insurance Agency. In November of last year, the Department of Insurance issued c&d and summary suspension orders against Melisa Lynne Blaisdell and the Blaisdell Clarius insurance agency.
