"Bad faith" insurance companies denial of unpaid claims are widespread, pervasive if not the norm, responsible for the greatest destruction and loss of U.S. and Americans wealth, assets, businesses, jobs and poverty, and ultimate maximum loss of human life. A 'legal' term, Bad Faith statutes and laws in each state are intentionally blindly overlooked and unenforced by states insurance regulatory agencies.

IT'S THE LAW
: Insurance companies are required to 'willingly' pay claims properly and promptly in "Good Faith". It is illegal to 'willingly' not pay, discount-lowball, delay, deny payment of legitimate claims in "Bad Faith". When claims go unpaid in bad faith, the associated wealth-assets-loss of jobs-businesses are lost forever

Bad Faith insurance companies have had decades to rig the American and in some cases worldwide systems in their favor. Bad faith (BF) insurers non-payment of CLAIMS practices are proven pervasive and widespread. Upwards of 85-95%+ are proven bad faith (BF) insurers that repeatedly and consistently break the law. There is a traditional quiet covert revolving door between the insurance industry employees and state regulator employees which contributes to the status quo of claims resolutions by state regulators being 99.9% anti-claimants and pro-insurers

FBIC struggles to identify the Good Faith (GF) insurance companies from the small number remaining as the outrageous and overwhelming number of Americans consumer complaints submitted to states insurance regulators exceed an astounding one million plus annually. Let there be no doubt that it is the insurance industry with their unlimited legal, financial resources and power that regulate the states insurance regulators-authorities and not the other way around which is the correct and way its supposed to be. Besides the states tiny insurance regulator agencies resources in comparison that neither have 1% of the necessary resources nor indicate or show any interest in doing anything about the "degree" of breach of contracts and/or the bad faith insurance payment claims status quo that is perpetrated and exists amongst 92.7% of ALL insurers, and which relativity FBIC uses in its ranking determinations. This is why it is essential that the U.S. Government have oversight control over state insurance regulators regarding interstate common ownership of the same bad faith insurance companies' non-payments and improper claims payments practices which commonly exist on a pervasive widespread basis

Americans Call For A BOYCOTT
Against Bad Faith Insurers!

(State governments regulate insurance companies that operate in their state. For decades the State Departments of Insurance have
covertly basically done nothing or when exposed the minimum to protect policyholders and claimants from 'bad faith' insurance companies, which comprise the overwhelming majority of today's insurers, which do not pay their claims in "good faith' as required by law. The insurance industry is among the top 3 industries out of the 50 largest industries to contribute the most $ amounts to political candidates campaigns.)

America asks you to join with All Americans' Boycott Movement against:
Auto-Home-P&C Insurers:  The Hartford(A,H), Allstate(A,H), State Farm(A,H)
Health-Life-Disability Insurers:
 Cigna(H), Unum(D), The Hartford(D,L)
Business & Annuity Insurers: The Hartford(B,A), CNA(B)
Reinsurers:
National Indemnity Company (aka NICO), CNA, ACE
to stop these worst ranked insurers illegal widespread Bad Faith Insurance claims practices, and pervasive fraudulent corrupt management cultures!

Why Boycott? The only action that will effectuate bad faith insurers to comply with the law and pay claims in good faith is to impact them in their wallets with an All-American boycott and for Americans to buy insurance from good faith insurers. Because bad faith insurers are widespread and pervasive, and good faith insurers so limited, we realize this may be difficult for some, which is why we ask for now that all Americans only boycott the insurers listed above (in red). Once these 'worst' of the bad faith insurers
(in red) commit to change and monitoring their bad faith practices and ways, we will then remove them from the bad side of the list and add other bad faith insurers to the red list. It's time for The American People to take back its present corporate and Wall Street controlled state and federal governments and our country. "If not for yourself, this Boycott is what you can do for your country". We ask you to be responsive and help spread the word to Boycott. You and all Americans are asked to help spread the word and demand that bad faith insurers stop preying on the American People imposing their widespread pervasive illegal bad faith insurance claims criminal culture and impunity denials poverty-driven practices on and against the American Public

(Note: This website chronicles the widespread criminal culture of the bad faith insurance industry by validation from the U.S. judicial system, mainstream print media, network TV broadcast and cable companies investigative videos, the insurance industry's trade print media, former insurance commissioners. Learn the BF practices of your insurer before disaster hits and your claim goes unpaid.)

Read  "Justice For Sale" - "How Special-Interest Money Threatens The Integrity Of Our Courts" (November 15, 2007) written by the much revered and honorable former U.S. Supreme Court Justice SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR.  And Yes, "Special Interest" includes the insurance industry and our country's bad faith insurers. The title speaks for itself.

  • HEADLINE #4b: Insurance Industry Related Judicial Corruption. Bad Faith Insurance Is Supported By America's Courts! Many Of Our States' High Courts Systems Judges And Justices Decisions Are Corrupt, Biased And Influenced By Bad Faith Insurers, Conflicted In This Modern Day Of "Follow The Money Ethics"! Corruption And The Absence Of Ethics And Injustice Is Shamefully Inherent In Our Judicial System In Many Of Our State's Supreme Courts And Highest States Courts.  The Resulting Injustices Are More Common Than We Would Like To Believe Or Admit That It Is ... It's Outrageous And It's Got To Stop. Read "Justice For Sale" (March 22, 2008) .  Although we would like to think that our state and federal courts judges are honest and beyond reproach, in many cases nothing could be farther from the truth. Many of the freedoms and the constitutional rights of all Americans continues to be eroded by such actions and the veracity of our whole court system, esp. in our states highest courts, is in jeopardy!  Read about some of the behind the scenes examples of how insurer bad faith insurance practices are sustained, upheld in law, influenced and supported by corruption and conflicted special interests (which includes insurers as you will read) and dishonest biased court judges in your state.

Read Another Article entitled "Drive To Choose Texas Judges On Merit Intensifies" ... Does Money Rule State Supreme Courts. (March 2, 2009) ...  And Yes, money rules many of our state courts which includes insurance industry money, our country's bad faith insurers and their law firms.

  • HEADLINE #4e: Insurance Industry Related Judicial Corruption. More, Bad Faith Insurance Is Supported By Corrupt, Biased, And Dishonest Judges In Our States' Highest Courts. (February 3, 2010) Read Another Article entitled "Judge Price delivers State of the Judiciary address"  ... Does Money Rule State Supreme Courts. (February 3, 2010) ...  And Yes, money rules many of our state courts which includes insurance industry money, our country's bad faith insurers and their law firms. (FBIC Note: "Remember the Avery v. State Farm case from Illinois in which an Illinois Supreme Court justice cast the deciding vote in a $450 million case in favor of an insurance company . after receiving more than $1 million in campaign contributions from those connected to the company. Remember the Caperton v. Massey case from West Virginia in which a new West Virginia Supreme Court justice cast the deciding vote in a $50 million case after the CEO of that company spent approximately $3 million to defeat the new judge's opponent. Justice is a sacred but fragile concept. It depends upon the eye of the beholder, the trust and confidence of our people. It cannot be for sale to the richest bidder, the most powerful special interest group, or to the cleverest consultant."

  • HEADLINE #4g: Insurance Industry Related Judicial Corruption. (Current - Last Updated August 18, 2008, An FBIC Exclusive) Does Corruption Exist Between Our States' Highest Courts Justices And Judges, Bad Faith Insurance Companies And Their Law Firms? The Answer Is A Resounding, YES!  The Fact Of The Matter Is That Bias And Corruption Within Our States High Courts Judicial Systems By Justices And Judges Has Been Going On Quietly Behind The Scenes Away From Public View And Having A Cumulative Devastating Effect On The Increasing Injustices Against American Citizens, Businesses And Plaintiff Trial Lawyers, And Significantly Eroding Americans Freedoms And Constitutional Rights For The Past Two Decades.  Note That Bad Faith Insurers By Such Corrupt Activities, Their Widespread Fraudulent Actions And Criminal Activities, Being That They Operate And Influence All Segments Of U.S. Consumer And Business Services, Adversely Effects And Negatively Impacts The Lives Of All Americans Every Day ... And Then To Have Their Fraudulent And Corrupt Activities Supported And Sanctioned By Biased State High Court Justices Is Simply Outrageous And Unacceptable.

  • HEADLINE #6: Taking Heat In The Media: Bad Faith Insurance Continues As Business Usual ... "Home Insurance 9-1-1".  View an investigative video exposé revealing some of the behind the scenes examples of controversial insurer bad faith home insurance practices. "In the fall of 2003, one of the largest recorded wildfires in California's history destroyed over 2,200 houses and killed fifteen people. Soon after, many who'd lost their homes had a rude awakening: their insurance did not nearly cover their losses as expected."
    PBS' NOW in collaboration with Bloomberg Markets Magazine investigate tactics some insurance companies may be using to reduce, avoid, or stall homeowners' claims in an effort to boost their own earnings. Two major insurers are referenced: State Farm and Allstate. To this day because of these dealings, many claimants have yet to be properly compensated.

  • HEADLINE #6a: More Taking Heat In The Media: Bad Faith Insurance Continues To Be Widespread, As Business Usual ... "The Insurance Hoax".  Read An investigative report illustrating some of the many ways "property insurers use secret tactics to cheat customers out of payments". "Property insurers systematically deny and reduce their policyholders claims, according to court records. The insurance companies routinely refuse to pay market prices for homes and replacement contents, they use computer programs to cut payouts, they change policy coverage with no clear explanation, they ignore or alter engineering reports, and they sometimes ask their adjusters to lie to customers". "Insurers make low offers--or refuse to pay at all--and then dare people to fight back."  Referenced insurers include Hartford, State Farm, Allstate Corp., Farmers Group Inc., Illinois Farmers owned by Farmers Group, Liberty Mutual, Meritplan Insurance part of Countrywide Financial Corp., Pacific Specialty Insurance, Allied Property & Casualty, AMCO Insurance ....

"Bribed Regulators Deceiving FBI Roil U.S. Insurance Customers".  Read An investigative report on the existence and some of the ways insurers bribes and inherent conflicts of interest within the system which make up the very foundation of the fragmented state insurance regulatory system. State government's regulatory agencies (Departments of Insurance) most often are found to be biased and extremely "favorable to insurance companies" and unjustly leave policyholders out in the cold. In addition, "regulators routinely come from industry jobs or go to them when they leave office" aka "the revolving door". The article references Departments of Insurance and identifies many such states insurance regulators/ commissioners.  Regarding "Bias Against Policyholders", "the conflicts that hinder state insurance oversight are also apparent at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). With the association and biased states insurance commissioners that make up the association, it's hard to expect consumers and policyholders can get an unbiased and fair shake.  Referenced insurers include Lovelace Sandia Health System Inc., State Farm, Safeway Insurance Co., Assurant Inc.  ...

  • HEADLINE #10:  FBIC Supports Washington State Insurance Fair Conduct Act Passed By The Legislature And Brought To The Public For A Vote. The WA State legislature passed (Senate: Yeas 31, Nays 18. / House: Yeas 59, Nays 38.) the "Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 5726 (ESSB 5726) concerning the Insurance Fair Conduct of Claims for coverage or benefits, and ordered it referred by Petition to the voters for a vote. The Bill makes it unlawful for insurers to unreasonably deny certain coverage and claims, and allows for payment of treble damages and attorney fees for violations. Some health insurance carriers are excluded. Presently, there is no penalty for delaying or denying policyholders valid claims. This Bill helps to make the insurance industry treat policyholders and consumers fairly and makes sure claims are handled fairly. The Bill has bipartisan officials and consumer groups support and as expected is opposed by the insurance industry and bad faith insurers. Washington is one of only 5 states with no penalty when the insurance industry intentionally denies a valid claim or when an insurer commits bad faith. FBIC recommends to the voters of Washington state that they vote "Yes" on Referendum 67 to pass the bill. Click here to view the official text of the bill. Tally of the results of Washington state voters on Referendum 67 on November 6, 2007: Congressional Bill ESSB 5726 was Passed into law by the voters.

  • HEADLINE #12:  Current Insurance Industry Events Includes Complete Coverage Of NY State Attorney General (AG) Eliot Spitzer's Office Investigation And Charges Of "Widespread Insurer Fraud And Corruption", Illegal Practices And Criminal Activities Amongst The Country's Largest Insurance Companies (Incl. Hartford, AIG, Etc.). The Investigation Focuses On Independent Insurance Agencies And Agents And Their Under The Table Behind The Scenes Kickbacks And Commissions Received From Insurers To Swing Sales Their Way. (State Farm And Allstate Use Their Own Agencies And Agents). Investigations Also Include: (a) Other States' Attorneys General (AG's) Although On A Much Lesser Basis; (b) Almost Non-existent Efforts By The States Departments Of Insurance (DOI's) And The National Association Of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC); (c) Also, Almost Non-Existent Investigations By Various Federal Government Agencies To Include Less Than A Half-hearted Effort By The Securities And Exchange Commissions (SEC) And The U.S. Department Of Justice (DOJ).

    How Well Or How Poorly Will This Scrutiny Of Our Country's Largest And More Well Known Insurers (i.e. Hartford, AIG, Etc.) Stand Up To Probes That At Best Just Scratch The Illegal Activities Surface Of These Insurers? The Answer: "Shamefully Poor, Reflecting An Industry Pervasive With Widespread Fraud And Criminal Activities" That Harbors Much More Criminal Activities, Fraud And Corruption Yet To Be Exposed.  FBIC Reports On Current Events Of These Select Investigations Of The Insurance Industry's Darker Sides And More, Exposing The Illegal Practices, Civil And Criminal Charges Brought (Or Lack Thereof) Against Hartford, AIG, Marsh & McLennan, And More Insurance Companies By:

    • States AG's
    • The SEC And DOJ Federal Agencies
    • States DOI's And The NAIC
    • Other Related Investigations And Lawsuits Against Insurers
    • Current Events And Goings-On In The Insurance Industry

    This FBIC Report Chronicles The Comprehensive And The Whole Story Covering Updates And News Breaks As AG Spitzer's Office And Other State AG's Investigations Only Look Into Fraudulent Activities In The 'Sales' End Of Companies Such As Hartford, AIG, Marsh & McLennan And Many More Insurers But Avoid The Criminally Intensive 'Claims' Area Where It Is Very Well Known And No Secret That Bad Faith Insurance Practices And Widespread Fraud And Corruption By Companies Such As State Farm, Allstate, Hartford And Many More Major Insurers As Reported To FBIC Are Far More Rampant And Pervasive And Subsequently Knows No Illegal Bounds. 

    The Investigations As They Play Out Indicate That The SEC (And DOJ) Primarily Limits Their Investigations Into Deceptive Finite Reinsurance Practices And Fraudulent Accounting Practices ... And Even Where There Is Evidence Of Criminality, The SEC Stays Clear Of Such Other Areas Where Insurance Companies Criminality Is Strongly Alleged To Exist.  Furthermore At Best, The States' Insurance Regulatory DOI's Agencies' And Insurance Commissioners Say One Thing But Do Just The Opposite And Intentionally Look The Other Way Shirking Their Responsibilities To Investigate On Behalf Of The American People And State Citizens.

    Of Note, This FBIC Report And Chronicle Reflects And Ultimately Indicates As You Can See By:

    (1) FBIC's "Introduction Sections" In Part Says It Like It Is As To Whether These Agencies' Investigations Are For Real Or Disingenuous And Just An Illusion To Deceive The American Public.

  • HEADLINE #13:  WHO IS REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR DENIED CLAIMS OR PAYING CLAIMS? This was the subject of a recent trial in Ohio whereby a jury found Centre Life Insurance and Disability Management Services, the defendants, guilty of breach of insurance contract awarding $429,400 in compensatory damages, guilty of bad faith insurance practices with an award of $1,130,000 and a punitive damages award of $3 million.

    FBIC researchers found three explosive 'legal' court documents from Stark County Ohio. The first document is brief and best describes one of the ways that an insurer Centre Life f/k/a Massachusetts Casualty, a third party claims management administrator Disability Management Services a/k/a DMS, and an affiliate reinsurer-Centre Reinsurance, which owns 40% of DMS, work in combination to intentionally evade payment of legitimate claims ... even going as far as falsifying information to an insurance commission. The second document is a more lengthy deposition, that of the President of Centre Life Insurance Company. The third document is the bad faith and punitive damages jury award.  A copy of these three must read eyebrow-raising court documents are contained herein.

  • HEADLINE #14:  Attention All America's Workers:  Now, Upon Settlement Of Workers Compensation (WC)  Claims, Insurers Want You To Pay Them Back For All $$$ Amounts, Medical Bills And Healthcare Costs They Pay Out On Your WC Insurance Benefits Coverage, Leaving You With $ Zero Or Worse Yet $ Owing ... Outrageous! In Congress H.R. 2830, Sect. 307 and a similar bill in the Senate does just that. As part of the Pension Reform Bill, insurers have succeeded in having a provision quietly added to the House version and passed which ensures in all cases that the insurance company providing healthcare services will be paid back first in the event of a settlement. An attempt by insurers to add this same provision to the Senate version must be STOPPED NOW or The American Public Will Lose. Thanks to:  American Association for Justice (fmrly ATLA), FBIC,  FBIC's members and website audience, Congressional Bill H.R. 2830, SECT. 307 Was Defeated.

    View For Yourself Insurers Engaged In Incriminating Schemes, Deceptive Acts And Other Bad Faith Insurance Practices ... And You Be The Judge!


    The following investigative exposés and videos, produced and broadcasted by the network television and cable media, uncover numerous examples of common and widespread bad faith insurers fraudulent actions and unlawful schemes to deny claims. Representing just the tip of the iceberg, for years they have been suppressed and kept secret as much as possible to the point that they have been little known by many and unaware by much of the Public, that is until now and in recent years as they have become more pervasive. Today, breach of contract and bad faith insurance practices have become so common and widespread by so many of our country's leading insurers, that they plague the industry and have become a serious industrywide problem. Bear in mind that the activities by the insurers exposed in the following videos herein are highly illegal but yet no congressional or enforcement authority have acted on them. This is why we ask consumers to buy insurance from Good-Faith insurers and not to buy from Bad-Faith insurers as this is the only way the American Public can take back it's power and stop insurers from victimizing all Americans, policyholders and claimants.

    The following videos on this website are free for the public to view. They are made available by FBIC for non-commercial educational purposes only .... copying is strictly prohibited.

      (3) "Rigsby Sisters Adjusters Whistleblowers Say State Farm Cheated Hurricane Katrina Victims". An exclusive investigative report reveals State Farm Insurance supervisors systematically demanded that Hurricane Katrina damage reports be buried, replaced or changed so that the company would not have to pay policyholders' claims in Mississippi, say two State Farm whistleblowers. The two insiders, Kerri and Cori Rigsby, independent adjusters who had worked for State Farm exclusively for eight years, say they have turned over thousands of internal company documents and their own detailed statement to the FBI and Mississippi state investigators. The Rigsby sisters say they saw "widespread" fraud at the State Farm offices in Biloxi and Gulfport, Miss. The sisters say they saw State Farm supervisors go to great lengths to pressure outside engineers to prepare reports concluding that damage was caused by water, not covered under State Farm policies, rather than by wind. They say reports that concluded that damage was caused by wind, for which State Farm would have to pay, were hidden in a special file and new reports were ordered "caused by water" so that State Farm would not have to pay. The allegations, if proven, would support the suspicions of thousands of homeowners along the Mississippi Gulf Coast who have been unable to get paid or properly collect on their insurance claims to rebuild their homes.

Soon after, many who'd lost their homes had a rude awakening: their insurance did not nearly cover their losses as expected." PBS' NOW in collaboration with Bloomberg Markets Magazine investigate tactics some insurance companies may be using to reduce, avoid, or stall homeowners' claims in an effort to boost their own earnings. Two major insurers are referenced: State Farm and Allstate. To this day because of these such dealings, many claimants have yet to be properly compensated. (PBS/Bloomberg, Aug. 2007)



      (12) View "The Insurance Hoax", an investigative video exposé confirming and revealing more of the behind the scenes examples of controversial insurers bad faith home insurance practices". Bloomberg Markets Magazine investigated tactics some insurance companies are using to lowball-reduce, delay, deny and not pay homeowners' claims in an effort to boost their earnings. Property insurers use secret tactics to cheat customers out of payments as their profits break records. Paying out less or not paying out claims at all (zero) to victims of catastrophes has helped produce record profits. In the past 12 years, insurance companies net income have soared, even in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Property-casualty insurers, which cover damage to homes and cars, reported their highest-ever profit of $73 billion last year, up 49 percent from $49 billion in 2005. Companies mentioned: State Farm (the largest home insurer in the U.S.), Allstate Corp.(2nd largest), Farmers Group, (3rd largest), McKinsey & Co. Consulting, More. To this day because of these such dealings, many claimants have been wrongfully and illegally denied, not paid on their claim, are in litigation and/or yet to have been compensated.

    FBIC Contact Information, Who We Are And What We Represent.
      FBIC (Fight Bad-faith Insurance Companies) comprise a cross-section of successful business people, professionals and other individuals networked throughout the United States and developed international countries who have one thing in common ... they all have or have had legitimate claims that were either denied by bad faith insurers, experienced or were exposed to most of the U.S.' biggest insurers' widespread bad faith insurance practices to include major insurers, such as Hartford, State Farm, Allstate and most others, who started them on the most abusive, deceptive, ruthless and illegal merry-go-round rides of their lives. Many such claims are in the courts for up to and more than ten years, many collecting interest on bad faith cases that were already decided by the trial courts years ago but the bad faith insurers just don't want to pay-up ... it's very profitable for bad faith insurers which comprise up to 93% of all U.S. insurers and reinsurers to willingly not pay claims.  So the insurers lawyers have been given the task to intentionally delay and drag out the cases, putting off payment for as long as possible .

    FBIC wants to help Policyholders and Insureds in every way possible but unfortunately the costs associated with telephone support and regular mail support are just too costly. The FBIC website has been developed and is still very much an expanding work-in-progress many years after it's inception in 1998.  FBIC is prudent and cost conscious. By making online resources and email available helps to keep our operation costs low and efficiency high, makes it so we can be more responsive, help and do our best to serve the U.S. Bad Faith Insurance Community's needs.

    For a number of our earlier years, there were those few that expressed concerns that this site might be something other than what it appears, such as some sort of cover for an insurance company or the insurance industry. Be assured that there is no hidden agenda and that no individuals from FBIC are connected either with the insurance industry, an insurance company, brokerage, agency or agent, a company that legally represents an insurance company or a business entity of the insurance industry. FBIC does not sell insurance or certify, endorse or warrant insurance products, companies, brokers, agents or vendors and is not a referral service.

    FBIC'S MISSION: Is to educate the American People and Others that to Insurance Companies, insurance is a business first. That Insurance Companies are no longer fiduciaries which is the way they were looked at many decades ago. That the overwhelming majority if not all insurers are to some degree or another bad faith insurers.  Whether it be one claimant's claim willingly and intentionally illegally denied, many or most as a percent of claims that are illegally denied or where claimants are forced to go through other illegal bad faith insurance practices, is what separates insurers from being ranked Good Faith or Bad Faith insurers. FBIC's mission is to educate all of the Public as to Bad Faith Insurance Practices and in regards to their perception of Insurers and the Insurance Industry. FBIC looks to take the rose-colored glasses off of the People and help to make a very uneven playing field between Insurers-Policyholders-Claimants less dishonest, more honest and more level. FBIC recognizes that this will not be done or through legislation or regulation who for 200+ years are solidly in the pockets of insurers and the insurance industry.

    FBIC members are mostly Americans with some international members anywhere and everywhere where large U.S. and international insurers sell insurance. Our members are a diverse group and among the greatest people in the U.S. FBIC members are males and females, both young and senior, rich and poor, some with professional and others non-professional backgrounds, white and blue collar, and of all ethnic colors, races and creeds that want and believe in working towards a "true" "honest" and corruption-free and bad faith-free insurance industry (not to exclude the same for a democratic system of government, a justice system built on equality and accessibility for all, an honest, corruption-free and prosperous system of business and capitalism, and a social system that is based upon "equality and fairness" for all such as the founding forefathers of this great country would have wanted ... and hopefully one that would believe in "The Real American Way" as a way of life at the very least had no children living in poverty and where all Americans knew both self-respect and respect for others) and that this site is exactly what it honestly represents it is ...
