Hundreds, Thousands More Cases Suspected. Click here to view ABC News (GMA) investigative expose on The Hartford's fraudulently stopping payment of benefits, a bad faith insurance claim practice, against a disability claimant with other similar cases referenced that very possibly infers and makes many suspect that many other similar cases may also be involved ... FBIC, having collected many and the highest number of disability related claims complaints against The Hartford, more than any other insurer, leads FBIC to believe that this and other related disability bad faith insurance practices are among common practices that The Hartford repeatedly uses in order to curtail and stop having to pay 'legitimate' disability claims. FBIC's database of so many related insureds complaints warrants an investigation by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) into The Hartford's practices in such cases.

In this day and age of national if not international financial services insurance conglomerates and commerce by insurers, how can any reasonable person consider such behemoth insurers not to be interstate commerce? It's unthinkable, not possible if not unimaginable, that is except for this small group of politicians, 'House Panel' voters! With this decision today, is this déjà vu of earlier more arcane and corruptible times, ... a flashback of the 1945 McCarran-Ferguson Act all over again? A time when the insurance industry using all of it's unparalleled power (and as others would characterize as the insurance industry's all powerful corruptible might), had Congress successfully overturn The 1944 U.S. Supreme Court's Decision declaring insurance 'Interstate Commerce' against insurance industry wishes and interests, which would have resulted in the insurance industry having to answer to ultimately a much tougher and greater power with federal government authority overseeing it and losing it's archaic federal antitrust exemption powers granted it at the time. Such an overturn of the United States Supreme Court decision returned the industry's regulatory oversight back to what has become proven over the decades to be the lame, powerless and cozy authority of individual states! The same crumb left on the table seemingly granting the federal government authority to act in circumstances where situations fell in-between the states authorities cracks by today's vote is the same and no different as was granted in 1945 which FYI has never been acted upon or exercised by the federal government or any federal committee since 1945 ... and there have been many times when federal action was substantiated and badly needed but no action on behalf of Americans consumers has ever been taken by the U.S. Government up until now with federal government TARP funds temporarily and possibly saving AIG, The Hartford and Lincoln National from going under. "With so much widespread fraud and corruption proven to exist in the insurance industry in these times", with this vote today and with the administration being so vocal in support of federal oversight of the industry being critically needed in light of our country's recent near financial collapse at the hands and feet of these companies, badly begs and lends the question for an answer: did corruption play a role with any of the House Panel voters and was the fix in by the insurance industry to render this unexpected and surprising decision today taken by House Panel voters for no U.S. consumer agency?

    Resolving Healthcare's #1 Biggest Problem *
    Source: FBIC Complaints Markets Analysis
    September 16, 2009 (Last Updated September 20, 2009)

  • Status Of The Healthcare Reform Bill - Hoping that healthcare reform would assist FBIC in it's mission to stop pervasive bad faith (health) insurance companies practices and stop or curb growing consumer healthcare insurance costs escalating exclusively to the benefit of excessive, outrageous health insurers profits, FBIC skepticism grows at this time as to whether a meaningful healthcare reform bill with 'any' teeth in being able to lower costs, protecting insureds and decreasing the uninsureds roles can result. Instead FBIC sees more of the same shameful political shenanigans surfacing with the possibility of a Public or similar competitive option and/or other pro-consumer insureds healthcare insurance rights disappearing and being minimized. Unfortunately, FBIC more-and-more sees the formation of a Healthcare Reform Bill the result of which is more of the same which only adds many of the 46-48 million uninsureds to the same predatory broken healthcare system and the revenue roles only benefiting those same (bad faith) health insurers with little or no healthcare reform and nothing to offset, balance or prevent the same escalating consumers healthcare costs. (9/14) President Obama Today In A Statement Announced That In The (Remaining) Proposed Healthcare Reform Bill "Health, Insurers Will No Longer Be Allowed To Get In Between Doctors And Their Patients" ... Is That What The Proposed Healthcare Reform Bill Still Being Hammered Out Behind Closed Doors Now Has Come Down To (And Can We Really Believe That Even That Issue Will Be Sustained). When will our elected politicians realize that they are there to represent the people and do what's best for our country but instead, in contrast to their rhetoric, their actions solely reflect what's best for the biggest, greediest, most dishonest (bad faith) health insurance companies which are the winners again and is exactly why we find ourselves in our (health insurance) economic crisis in the first place ... and subsequently the people and our country lose again;
  • #1 Problem: Lack Of Competition in many if not most states, markets and areas where there is no competition or a lack of competition of health insurance companies. There is no competition or a lack of competition or alternatives in many if not most states and local areas and markets in the U.S. where just one or two large health insurers (i.e. United Healthcare, BlueCross Blue Shield, etc.) control 50%-60% up to 80% or more of the local area's health insurance market dollar revenues (a/k/a monopoly or duopoly);
  • #1 Solution: Creating Competition utilizing a U.S. Government Health Insurance Program Option with a built in trigger limited to selected areas where such health insurance companies' monopolies and duopolies exist now and may arise in the future should be the first step for implementation. Initially and for starters, the potentially national program can/should be started (tested) in one and/or several select local area(s) in predetermined existing monopoly and/or duopoly markets and areas. The program can then be expanded or rolled out nationally according to schedule as planned or as needed. Furthermore as desired in the selected areas, either or both the 'minimum' amount of market share that the private sector health insurers might lose along with the 'maximum' amount of share that the Public Government Program would be allowed to garner could be 'limited' as well as 'regulated' according to preferred rules and conditions. Accordingly, each local program at any time can be continued and maintained, or discontinued and transferred or spun-off depending upon its deemed success, failure or preference. (Alternatives such as local state or regional health insurance Co-ops and/or Exchanges structured programs in these same areas will not work as an initial structure for many proven reasons. One major and primary reason is the likelihood or possibility of not being able to reach critical mass which would require the success of many and other local states and market programs to be achieved, each requiring costly public subsidies, and limitations in ever being able to be cost effective on its own and/or lower healthcare costs);
    * As indicated, it should be of no surprise that an overwhelming share, number and majority of the many thousands of FBIC bad faith and other related insurance complaints and surveys received from consumers nationally, esp. those relating to health insurance problems, have a tendency to stem for the most part from states (and/or markets) where some major health insurers control and service predominantly monopolistic or duopolistic areas, where there is less or a lack of competition, and limited, little or no choice of other available and competitive health insurers.

At very minimum, have any of these supposedly bright and talented, powerful/privileged positioned and "reportedly patriotic" business executives heard of the simplistic word "Recuse" when making decisions that involve their own conflicts of interest??????? Already knowing where many of the frauds-bodies are buried, We ask the American people and the U.S. Government to appropriate to it 'subpoena power' and the authority to investigate such questionable activities against the American People by (bad faith) insurers and financial services companies executives ... and FBIC will do it for $ nothing (zero dollars).

  • HEADLINE #1-151 (Rev. March 9, 2009) Insurance-Financial Services: NAIC Reports: Top 5 Reasons Insurance Consumers File Complaints Against Insurers. FBIC Note: As reported by the NAIC article, "The top three reasons consumers filed formal complaints against their insurance companies in 2008 were delays, denials of claims and unsatisfactory settlement offers." FBIC does not applaud the NAIC for finally coming clean on the nature of the substance of the most prevalent consumer insurance complaints. The report, as FBIC recognizes, comes better late than never as times have forced the NAIC to do so ... otherwise by not doing so would only subject them to more overwhelming shame and ridicule. In earlier days and up until now, the NAIC would indicate for example that one of the biggest if not the #1 consumer complaint was something of a lesser fraudulent nature for example something like a favorite previously used "insurers didn't respond to insureds complaints within the number of days, some 30 or 45 days, allowed for" under the individual states' statutes.

    Up until now, they would never have admitted to the fact as they did in this report that "The top three reasons consumers filed formal complaints against their insurance companies in 2008 were delays, denials of claims and unsatisfactory settlement offers" which FBIC has professed and fought for such illegal bad faith insurer practices to be exposed since it's 1998 inception and which has been going on we expect for 200 years and definitely moreso in the past 30 years. It's unfortunate that the NAIC report comes now at a time when the economy per Warren Buffett "is experiencing a Pearl Harbor" and is badly sinking to the point where many truths are being forced to out as heretofore many of such truths would have never been admitted to by the NAIC and insurance industry establishment. The NAIC recognizes that because of the persistent increasing pressures of FBIC, in concert with the press, plaintiff lawyers, and the mounting force of populism and consumerism, such truths being more frequently exposed are slowly starting to succeed and win out over the pervasive illegal and fraudulent practices being perpetrated by insurers although  law enforcement is badly behind. Furthermore, with the past and present movement of pervasive frauds of insurers being increasingly exposed picking up steam, which unfortunately and to the contrary the NAIC can not take a shred of credit for. In the past, the NAIC has quietly behind closed doors and under the sheets favored if not totally supported the fraudulent activities of insurers over policyholders, claimants and consumers ... it's proven so on this website. With exception of consumer advocates recently being allowed to play a larger role by the NAIC, don't expect this candor to continue on ad infinitum as the minute this focus of attention dwindles and brief period of exposure passes, we expect with the extreme money and power of the insurance industry being as strong as it is, so too will the holes in the insurance industry wall of silence to be plugged and the level and extent of the scrutiny and candor to diminish and/or return to more controlled industry maintained levels.

    In this report the NAIC states a total of 195,669 confirmed consumer complaints on insurance companies were reported in 2008 calendar year. (FBIC has reported from extensive research in previous years, that it estimates there being upwards of 1 million or more complaints annually against insurers and stands behind this number. Why the disparity? Many states, near half + or - of the state insurance departments do not report such complaint related information to the NAIC for their gathering. In addition, an overwhelming majority of complainants do not bother to submit their (claims related) insurance related complaints to their state insurance departments, something which FBIC has advocated complainants need to do since its inception moreso in order to help change the overwhelming imbalance of power between insurers and insureds. FBIC has advocated since inception the reporting of insureds complaints to their state insurance departments not that they would help with their claims denials but specifically in order to change this imbalance. The NAIC should have noted this information in it's report.

  • HEADLINE #1-84 (Jan. 13, 2009) Insurance-Financial Services: Insurance Industry Groups React In Opposition To GAO Regulatory Report In Support Of Federal Regulation. In this article, Roger Sevigny, NAIC president and New Hampshire insurance commissioner said the NAIC "is pleased to point out" that the study acknowledges that state regulators are positioned to "move more quickly and more flexibly to respond to activities causing harm to consumers" than federal regulators. In response and opposition, FBIC would like to point out that due to the overwhelming power and strength of the insurance industry and it's lobbying groups, the proven 'widespread fraud and corruption' insurance industry has experienced only two 'major' probes and investigations since the 1990's. One was of the life insurance industry in the mid-nineties by multiple class-action civil suits lawyers where the states Departments of Insurance hid behind the insurance industry wall of silence and were nowhere to be found to help consumers, policyholders and victims (for supporting proof, and more on the 100% absence of investigation by the NAIC into the widespread frauds in the life insurance industry, click here; and the other was in 2004-2006 by a state attorneys general investigation led by NY state AG Eliot Spitzer for supporting documentation on the total lack and absence, if not opposition, to there being any investigation by the NAIC, click here). In both cases the absence of any NAIC (National Association Of Insurance Commissioners) consumer action was completely (100%) nowhere to be found. In spite of their mild almost tongue-in-cheek half-hearted attempts and responses to the contrary, The NAIC actions have repeatedly been proven over the years to be 100% pro-insurers with little if any regard or interest for consumer rights but also indicative of the 100% active revolving door that exists between state insurance commissioners and the insurance industry.

FBIC Reports that this change is a terrible train wreck waiting to happen ... as a result how many policyholders will come up short or wind up with life insurance policies that are worthless and have no value. FBIC goes on the record that it is strongly against this anti-consumer action to lower life insurance companies capital reserves.

  • HEADLINE #1-74 (Dec. 23, 2008) Insurance-Financial Services: Report Shows Drop In SEC Criminal Case Referrals. FBIC is not surprised by this as it proved in it's documented chronicles and diary on this website of then New York state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's and other state AG's enforcement activities that although there was much fraud, corruption and illegal wrongdoing found and exposed in the multistate AG's insurance industry investigations in 2004 - 2006, the SEC Chairman Christopher Cox (Aug. 3, 2005 - Jan. 20, 2009) did little or nothing to investigate and/or did not refer any of the many exposed frauds to the Department Of Justice (DOJ) for prosecution. To make it worse, AG Spitzer specifically and repeatedly asked for Federal intervention and help but yet the SEC still did nothing. FBIC blames this near 100% lack of action by the SEC to be completely due to SEC Chairman Cox's fault and laxity in not referring any of those that were found to have committed such frauds to the DOJ for prosecution. Did somehow SEC Chairman Cox feel that such actions by the SEC would be bad for American Business?  Another reason of note and why FBIC is not surprised by Cox's lack of action is because when President Bush in 2005 replaced former SEC Chief Donaldson with Christopher Cox, FBIC recalls President Bush saying, "Hopefully, the new SEC Chief Christopher Cox will be able to keep his mouth shut". You can see it for yourself if you wish to read and review the chronicle diary of the headlines and articles of this two year expose of widespread fraud and corruption found in the insurance industry by clicking here (this linked section includes a short introduction on the SEC's complete lack of action followed by a chronicle diary of the news media' headlines in regards to the "widespread fraud found in the insurance industry investigation". If you read the headlines, they reveal the story a complete lack of action by the SEC ... then if you read the text of all the headline articles, you can only scratch your head in amazement as to why Cox did not do anything. Recommended reading only if/when you have substantial available time).

  • HEADLINE #1a-The Hartford Upfront (FBIC Reports September 2008 - Current) Hartford Financial Services (HIG) aka The Hartford Insurance: As it relates to the viability and survival of some imperiled insurance companies as the U.S. works through its financial and economic crises, Hartford appears to be the next to fail. In addition to a serious cash-burning life insurance and variable annuity units which alone threaten the viability of the entire company, Hartford's investment portfolio has significant toxic negative exposures such as credit default swaps, derivatives, mortgage-backed securities and other financial securities-instruments not to mention a significant growing amount of 'unrealized losses' on it's books (their commercial real estate backed securities portfolio is reported April 26, 2009 to exceed 50% of their shareholders equity alone) and looming increasing losses in its variable annuities business.

    Allianz could be the white knight here if it were to acquire the remaining shares of Hartford that it does not already own but Allianz and some of it's subsidiaries have their own problems and have significant negative financial exposures and as Hartford's negative cash flow situation worsens that likelihood has proven to be diminished.  So as the domestic and international recession grows deeper, the longer Hartford puts off bankruptcy, the greater the likelihood that bankruptcy may not be an option should it delay and become insolvent.

    The Hartford (HIG) announced Nov. 14, 2008 that it 'is acquiring' a small Federal Savings Bank for $10 million so that it can borrow moneys from the Federal Government's 'TARP" Program. If this concept were to work although it might buy The Hartford (HIG) some time from having to declare bankruptcy sooner rather than put off bankruptcy until a few more months later, by that time and at that point, it's operating situation and status will have only worsened to the point of becoming insolvent. Unfortunately for The Hartford (HIG) Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson on Nov. 18, 2008 announced that it is very likely that those insurers recently buying a savings bank will not receive bailout funds from the U.S. Treasury Program. (Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson in testifying before Congress indicated that the Treasury Department would be selective about letting insurers participate in the CPP by creating a bank holding company or a thrift holding company. "I'm not sure that's going to be a successful strategy," Paulson said. "Using a bank or thrift holding company operation to apply for the CPP "may make sense" for insurers that have had bank holding companies for some time, Paulson said.)

    In March 2009 The Hartford tried unsuccessfully to attract any buyers for its 'Life' insurance unit. In April 2009 It is testing the waters and trying to sell it's flagship Property & Casualty Unit which result at this 26-April 2009 time remains to be seen. And then there's the potential for borrowing from the U.S. Treasury TARP (perceived as a negative), and/or ultimately their insurance units will/may have to go into receivership and the parent Hartford Financial Services Corporation will go into bankruptcy. So for each day that goes by, it looks worse for The Hartford's survival. If The Hartford delays and puts off filing for bankruptcy protection, chances only improve and are likely that it will be forced into conservatorship or worse yet be put into runoff and forced to liquidate whereby pieces of the remaining company could be picked up by others for cents on the dollar. Although further borrowing to cover losses appears to be unavailable to Hartford to cover it's negative cash flows as they deplete cash reserves, such actions if available would only just weaken and put the company in further jeopardy. .

    Comparison The Hartford vs. AIG: Although Hartford is a small if not tiny fraction of the size of AIG, it has a similar model. Hartford's model and 52-week $ decline from a high of $99+ to its recent November 2008 low of $4+ similarly and to a very close degree correlates and mirrors that of AIG, with it's 52 week high $62+ to recent Nov low $1+ ... one big difference is that AIG is considered too big to fail and subsequently is now 79% owned by the U.S. Government on behalf of American taxpayers and has already burnt as of Nov. 18 through $150 billion ... The Hartford is not considered too big to fail. (In doing the following comparison of AIG vs. The Hartford for recent years, note that such industry information made available has been diligently researched by FBIC over the past 11 years with significant and great challenges as such information is generally unattainable if not impossible to secure due to the intentional 'opaqueness' and complete lack of 'transparency' which historically up to present day is known to be the norm for the insurance industry aka "industry wall of silence")

    The following are the 'market share ranks' by lines of insurance for AIG (A) vs. The Hartford (H), respectively: (1) Health & Accident: A=12, H=41; (2) Life: A=1, H=12; (3) Property & Casualty (Auto, Home, Bus.): A=2, H=9; (4) Workmen's Comp.: A=2, H=6; (5) Group Disability: A=15, H=2; (6) Variable Annuity: A=11+, H=3.  [Further Note: Being a much smaller company than AIG with a much lower market share in the larger numerous lines of insurance that it participates, has helped Hartford operate under the radar and shield it's extreme bad faith insurance claims denials practices from the Public while it's much larger insurance competitors (i.e. State Farm, Allstate, Etc.) receive the focus of the media's attention in such bad faith insurance matters. The Hartford's complaint ratio of bad faith related complaints by policyholders, consumers and businesses when correlated to their smaller size and market shares on average earns them the #1 bad faith position by far in the lines of their insurance businesses with exception of the Group Disability line of insurance where it holds the #2 bad faith insurer position to #1 bad faith insurer Unum Insurance formerly known as Unum-Provident].

    The Hartford Insurance should not be bailed out by the Federal Government and U.S. taxpayers who are the very same people that the insurer routinely and illegally denied their legitimate claims ... without first requiring The Hartford to 'settle' in 'utmost' good faith including all and it's excessive number of its 'unsettled' seemingly legitimate claims that previously were denied and went unsettled and those with their hired lawyers considered legitimate by average Americans (per the law) and/or U.S. Government attorneys. Furthermore, and in going forward, not without direct 'independent' oversight (hopefully by FBIC and it's membership, and not by the former and existing CT state Dept. of Insurance 'proven' fraudulent in 2006) to guarantee that Hartford won't resort to the same inherent criminal bad faith actions in the future against the same very U.S. taxpayers that hopefully won't be asked to bail them out. (FBIC as always is pleased to provide well-intentioned acceptable authorities confirming evidence to support allegations as might be requested if not already provided on this website.)

    More on The Hartford to Fail ... The personal and business environment for most lines of insurance (including and esp. P&C) during the economic downturn starting in 2008 as announced by the Industry rating companies and credit analysts (i.e. Fitch, S&P, Moody's, etc.) has been extremely soft especially in the personal and business lines of insurance that The Hartford operates. Experts agree that Hartford will not be able to sell the company and/or sell its insurance products out of harms way and it's worsening day-by-day deteriorating problem situation. Accordingly, Hartford's growing reputation as a bad faith insurer has negatively impacted and also contributed to its sales slump and shrinking market share in its lines of insurance due not only based on overwhelming amounts of fraudulent and criminal activities exposed by prosecutions of a small handful of states attorneys generals over the recent 2-year period (2004-2006) but also the excessive number and overwhelming amounts of bad faith insurance related evidence and complaints collected from countless policyholders complaints, other complainants, whistleblowers, (held in strictest confidence by FBIC) and many other sources by FBIC and states Departments of Insurance over the past years.

    Ramani Ayer, Present Chairman & CEO Including Formerly President (1991 - Present)  and Thomas M. Marra, President & COO need to be immediately removed and investigated by The U.S. Department Of Justice, The U.S. Congress and The FBI for admittedly running a criminal enterprise and for their company's widespread fraudulent practices and illegal activities committed against the American People. ... Investors, Policyholders, Taxpayers And The American Public are demanding to have such illegal activities stopped, NOW.

    The Hartford's Repeated Fraudulent Practices Like It Was Just Yesterday: (FBIC Reports On The Biggest Insurance Companies Frauds Employing Illegal Bad Faith Insurance Practices Ever Perpetrated In Modern Times By Life Insurance Companies Against Their Own Customers And Policyholders. Such life insurance bad faith practices were exposed in the mid-1990s stemming from fraudulent activities by life insurers which practices allegedly started in the mid 1980s and went through to the mid 1990s and that affected upwards of 50 million life insurance policyholder victims (not a typo). Although Hartford Life was a smaller player in life insurance than some of the other named life insurance notables at the time, The Hartford and Hartford Life was implicated and relatively speaking alleged to be a significant player in the frauds along with the others. FYI, many life insurance experts agree and allege that many of these same fraudulent practices are still commonly practiced today).

    For those of you that don't know or don't remember what pervasive bad faith life insurance practices commonly occurred in the 1980s - mid 1990s involving the life insurance and annuities industry, it included upwards of some 30 life insurance and annuities companies being accused and exposed for bad faith insurance practices against their own customers in the largest expose ever to hit the life insurance industry in modern times if not up to that point ... and FBIC may be the only source to have it in it's archives. It was estimated that less than 10% of those victimized would actually be made whole by class action suits. Assuming another 5% "opted out" or chose not to participate in the class action suits, this left approximately upwards of 85% of life insurance policyholder victims that were hanging onto policies that were of no value and would never benefit anyone. The states Departments of Insurance hid behind the insurance industry wall of silence and were nowhere to be found to help policyholders and victims. more.

    The Hartford Recently And Now, More Repeated Fraudulent Practices. Hartford is ranked the country's #1 bad faith insurer by consumers and FBIC's national membership based on FBIC's extensive collection of data, research, investigations and findings.  On a separate but related note, it is not surprising that the following are but just a few of the many articles highlighting several of the many more illegal activities inherent in The Hartford's criminal corporate culture as exposed, investigated and prosecuted by that of just a few states' attorneys generals in just a recent short 2 years span (2004-2006) as to Hartford's widespread and pervasive fraudulent activities. Even though what FBIC says about The Hartford is completely true and substantiated, if you don't believe FBIC for what we say and have said since our inception in 1998, about The Hartford over the years acting as a criminal enterprise, if you don't believe FBIC when we reference and tell you about The Hartford's widespread illicit and pervasive fraudulent activities, excessive number of bad faith and breach of contract related consumer complaints, widespread denials and non-payment of claims, trickery, deception, extensive whistleblower information and evidence collected over 11 years on Hartford's illegal activities ... then read the following recent mainstream media articles by the country's own media establishment over a 2-year period limited investigation by a handful of states attorneys general which are but a few and just scratch the surface confirming some of Hartford's illegal and criminal activities regarding their sales department alone:

    It has further been noted and reported that Hartford Financial Services aka Hartford Insurance aka The Hartford received substantially more subpoenas during the coordinated handful of states Attorneys Generals (AGs) investigations in the 2 years 2004 - 2006 significantly more than any other insurance company ... and these few aforementioned referenced articles regarding states' attorney generals investigations into "widespread fraudulent activities found in the insurance industry" and the AG's actions which don't come close to reflecting the inordinate many more numbers of individuals and businesses lawsuits against "The Hartford" for not paying claims of policyholders and claimants, including widespread allegations of committing illegal, criminal and fraudulent practices and bad faith activities. Read much more on The Hartford's leading role that they reluctantly had to face up to in the investigations and other bad faith insurers widespread illegal and fraudulent activities exposed by clicking here (recommended reading only if/when you have substantial available time).

    We ask the Board of Directors of The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. to recognize what represents a small sampling of numerous events and articles reflecting serious repeated criminal infractions of fraudulent and bad faith insurance practices and recurring illegal activities by The Hartford while under the guise of Ramani Ayer and Thomas M. Marra ... while under your directorship, stewardship and supervision. On behalf of Hartford's Investors, Shareholders, Policyholders, Denied Claimants And Unnecessarily Victimized Plaintiff Litigants formerly insured with The Hartford as well as All Americans who deserve better, FBIC accordingly request that you take the necessary steps to immediately remove Ramani Ayer and Thomas Marra from their corporate and operations positions of responsibility and release them immediately from any and all association with The Hartford without delay and before it's too late. [Feb. 25, 2009 Update:  The Hartford announced Thomas Marra's (50), President & COO resignation from The Hartford's Board of Directors effective immediately, and retirement July 3, 2009.  FBIC reiterates it's Call for Ramani Ayer (61), Chairman & CEO to immediately be removed from his operating office and immediately be unseated from The Hartford's Board of Directors, and before he can do/does further damage to shareholders, policyholders and the American Public.]

    As it relates to Ramani Ayer, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of The Board and Thomas M. Marra, President and Chief Operating Officer and member of the Board of Directors respectively of The Hartford, on behalf of Hartford Investors, Shareholders, Policyholders and Litigants who have lost all confidence in the corporate governance, integrity and ethics, financial and fiduciary responsibilities and duties of these two officers of the Corporation, we direct this appeal to the remaining non-executive members of the Board of Directors, to exercise their corporate responsibilities and immediately remove these two individuals from their operating offices and unseat them from the Board of Directors. The non-executive members of The Board of Directors of 'The Hartford' to whom this request is made include:


    Ramani Ayer became President & COO of The Hartford's P&C Operations in 1991. Ayer has been Chairman and CEO of The Hartford since 1997. During this time while serving in his capacity, The Hartford under Ayer's regime has adversely and negatively effected many hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans because of The Hartford's illegally denying and not paying legitimate claims, and/or not paying claims properly and promptly as required by law. Subsequently, Ramani Ayer's (and Thomas M. Marra's, President & COO) removal is not only necessary but would positively impact Hartford's ranking as the country's #1 worst bad faith insurer but also turnaround its diminishing lack of confidence in it's business would be an important first step ... and with professional management installed (such as Allianz), would restore investor and policyholder confidence and dramatically improve its low ranking-rating possibly (to emulate Allianz's present #3 U.S. good faith insurer). Otherwise, if the U.S. market maintains its expected deteriorating economic conditions at least for the next 6-9 months or longer, it is expected that under Ramani Ayer's fraudulent, corrupt and illegitimate leadership, The Hartford Will Fail And/Or Go Into Bankruptcy. more early on indicators.

    More than 90% of Hartford's shareholders and investors are institutional. As 'The Hartford' has been shown, proven and/or has admittedly indicated their company's involvement in fraudulent, criminal and/or illegal activities against The American Public, The American People and U.S. Businesses nationwide at everyone's expense but to Hartford's executives own personal benefit. This is a critical problem that has accumulated over time and has reached the point whereby it has come back to roost and haunt the Company and which won't leave without action being taken to resolve this very critical and serious problem. [The following mainstream media articles below are a small sampling of current activities that are symptomatic evidence reflecting the inherent problems that exist at The Hartford which continue to grow, be exposed and which won't go away until Ramani Ayer and Thomas Marra are removed from their positions. The fact that Hartford's share price within the past recent year has gone from it's high of $100 (one-hundred) to it's recent November 21, 2008 $4+ share price low and going lower to zero speaks for itself].

    Americans as well as businesses have grown intolerant and are sick and tired of being taken advantage of by insurance companies acting badly in their own company's and executives' exclusive interests, so until Ramani Ayer Chairman & CEO and Thomas M. Marra, President & COO are removed from Hartford's Board and The Hartford's operating positions, and Hartford changes it's fraudulent and illegal anti-American ways and activities, FBIC asks all institutional and personal investors of The Hartford (HIG) to sell all of their stock and investment holdings in Hartford Financial Services aka The Hartford ... and when you sell your holdings in The Hartford to please click here to contact FBIC by email and at your discretion we will list you in green and/or remove you from the Hartford (HIG) institutional investors list. The following are Hartford Financial Services (HIG: NYSE) largest institutional investors with the largest investor company listed first in descending order by $ amounts invested (to view click here) for The list of Hartford's largest institutional investors, addresses and telephone numbers ... call and ask them to sell their shares in good faith before they fail).

  • HEADLINE #1a-The Hartford On Direct Recall aka Hartford Financial Services aka Hartford Insurance (NYSE: HIG): (FBIC Reports September 2008 - Current) In current retrospect: "The Hartford is financially strong and well capitalized," Hartford Chief Executive Ramani Ayer said in a statement Nov. 3, 2008. Counting the companies in recent weeks who have used the "financially strong and well capitalized" line are Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, IndyMac, Washington Mutual, Merrill-Lynch, Wachovia, Etal.  (FBIC Note: The Hartford public relations blast November 3 probably wouldn't have mattered for Fitch Ratings and Moody's Investor Services, as each some 72 hours earlier on Oct. 31 downgraded Hartford.  Moody's cut Hartford's unsecured debt rating one notch to A3 while Fitch downgraded Hartford to A from A+ (indicating that it's not strong enough for a AA). On Dec. 5 "Ayer reiterated that The Hartford is well capitalized and has ample liquidity".

    Ramani Ayer's represents projections for The Hartford are optimistic for their P&C and Life operations even when the industries' experts consensus for the P&C, Life and other insurance related Industries are for a decline as the P&C, Life and the other insurance markets that Hartford operates continue to worsen for 2008 and 2009 ... these are the real facts:


    Is The Hartford's Chairman & CEO Ramani Ayer 'knowingly' misrepresenting, misstating and distorting the true Hartford operating divisions performances facts and projections for it's P&C Insurance, Life Insurance, Annuities, Workers Compensation and Group Disability facts to investors? FBIC believes unambiguously and definitively, YES!  The truth will out within the next 3-6 months. The facts by industry experts and mainstream media say otherwise. Is Hartford's financial and communications departments at Ayer's command intentionally misstating the facts and providing misinformation and/or more false statements and untruths (aka lies) to the Public and not telling Americans, investors and concerned policyholders the truth and the real way it is?

    The following articles with our notes for emphasis address all of the ambiguities from Hartford statements on all of their operations. In spite of The Hartford's less than forthright ambiguously positive statements, insurance industry overseers and authorities cite the following: the 2008 and projected 2009 P&C insurance business to be down, soft at best; Life insurance sales are down; All of The Hartford's major life insurer competitors mortgage related investments are down and unrealized losses are up according to their 'legitimate' evaluations; Hartford's variable annuity business is a source of negative cash flow and risk; as employers layoffs increase FBIC projects Hartford's smaller workmen's compensation and group disability division's insurance sales to also be down. These account for most all of Hartford's operations and businesses which prospects at best are anything but positive.

    ... With The Hartford Being Less Than Forthright, Ambiguous And Lack Of Transparency In Their Forward Looking Statements As Followed And With No Transparency To One-Time Events Write-offs, Let There Be No Doubt That It's Only A Matter Of Short Time That Hartford Is A Train Wreck Waiting To Happen. The Hartford Will Fail, File For Bankruptcy Protection Or Become Insolvent And Wipe Out Investors ... And Hartford Will Probably Say Like Bear Stearns And All The Others That It Was The 4 Days Prior Market Downturn Which Caused It's Demise When All Along The Underlying Causes Can Be Read In Between The Lines Of Their Ambiguous And Less Than Forthcoming Investors Meeting Forward Statements And Press Releases Which FBIC Presents To You.

As indicated, there are 'many' questions regarding Ramani Ayer's parsed and vague statements and double-talking in Hartford's investors conference held this day Some of the ambiguous statements are incorporated in The Hartford's forward looking statements many of which can be caught by reading this Bloomberg News article as well as other mainstream media articles of which many are cited herein. For just a couple of investor questions which are prompted in their investors conference and indicated in the article are the statements "exclude investment results", "exclude one-time and special items" especially as Ayer stated, "some of the insurer's holdings have been hammered way beyond what we believe is the intrinsic value". Even more questionable are The Hartford's projections in the article being optimistic for their P&C operations when the consensus for the P&C industry is for a decline as the P&C insurance and life insurance markets continue and are projected to worsen for 2008 and 2009. Ramani Ayer's represents projections for The Hartford are optimistic for their P&C and Life operations even when the industries' experts consensus for the P&C, Life and other insurance related Industries are for a decline as the P&C insurance market continues to worsen for 2008 and 2009 are the real facts for P&C insurance industry says sales are down, soft at best, Life insurance industry says sales are down and expected to go down further to say the least, More Down For 'Life' Industry, More Down For 'P&C' ('Auto', 'Homeowner') Industry. Is Hartford Chairman & CEO Ramani Ayer knowingly misrepresenting and misstating the true Hartford P&C Insurance, Life Insurance, And Annuity facts to investors? The facts by industry experts and mainstream media say otherwise. Is Hartford's financial and communications departments at Ayer's command intentionally misstating the facts and providing misinformation and/or more false statements and untruths (aka lies) to the Public and not telling Americans, investors and concerned policyholders the truth?

    Among further questions include the reference that "Hartford has $3.5 billion of existing additional capital resources", is this the same collateral referred to which are otherwise not liquid and to be used as collateral as referenced earlier with The U.S. Treasury TARP should Paulson change his mind and allow them to borrow? Also, they have repeatedly referenced this year to "a $1.9 billion revolving credit facility" but in such a deteriorating market as this is, The Hartford fails to identify the source and at very least indicate if/when the credit facility expires. "They further indicate that Hartford may face further losses as commercial mortgage delinquencies rise and securities backed by the loans plummet. The company is "overweight" CMBS, with a $11.2 billion portfolio, according to a slide presentation today" further adds to potential for serious one-time charges not presently reflected esp. when "Top-rated commercial-mortgage bonds, the largest part of the market, tumbled about 10 percent last month, according to Merrill Lynch & Co.'s CMBS Fixed-Rate AAA-Rated index.

(Because of so many previous untruths and misleading statements issued by The Hartford in the past, FBIC questioned this "Hartford Company News" brief 6-sentence article released from The Hartford's Ramani investor conference which indicates: "The Hartford noted that it is well capitalized and has ample liquidity" along with "The Company's statutory surplus exceeded $13 billion as of September 30, 2008 and the company held more than $12 billion in cash, short-term investments and Treasuries, as of November 30, 2008". Attention: These two sentences are misleading investors as they are not related. The Hartford should immediately apologize and clarify for investors and the Public that the "well capitalized and ample liquidity" statement here has nothing to do with the referenced statement "statutory $13 billion surplus and $12 billion" figures. The Company's referenced "statutory surplus exceeded $13 billion as of September 30, 2008 and the company held more than $12 billion in cash, short-term investments and Treasuries, as of November 30, 2008" are FYI, The Hartford's statutory figures which are The Hartford's reserves held by state insurance statute regulatory authority and according to all state laws are required (along with all insurance companies) to be held for all policyholders and to cover claims, etc. and as such Hartford knows these moneys by law cannot be touched or used for operations or liquidity purposes and subsequently has nothing to do with the Company's liquidity ... This stated and knowing this, the "well capitalized and ample liquidity" statement in actuality leaves Hartford with a shrinking smaller and marginally at best amount of cash remaining for liquidity and operations.

    FBIC calls again for these reserves to be constantly monitored and verified for their quality and existence by the states Departments of Insurance ... Policyholders Demand And Deserve This! ... (Note: It became further obvious to FBIC that the $13 billion in cash and short-term related securities held by regulatory authority of which reserves are required to be held by law, as obviously why would Hartford sell a 26% stake in the Company to Allianz as it did on October 6 in order to raise a small $2.5 billion to stay afloat if it has $12 billion in cash? At least it's good to know that The Hartford in this regard is bringing attention to the fact that it's observing the law. No other insurance company refers to statutory dollars held in reserve and to top it off refers to it regarding 'liquidity' in the same sentence or paragraph. The Hartford should apologize for issuing two such misleading inappropriate and ambiguous statements in such ambiguous context let alone the same Company article. In addition, and as indicated, we should be cautious and wary as to "Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items" statement as Company's forecasts such as was involved here always excludes unrealized losses, investment results, one-time and many potential special items which should be expected to be negative, and possibly a very big negative. Also note that the article references that "Prudential Financial Inc. disclosed that 'unrealized losses' on fixed-income securities more than doubled to $13.4 billion on Nov. 21 from $5.9 billion at the end of September. And furthermore there's the mention that "Mortgage bonds posted a record decline in November" along with properties bundled into bonds and other one-time items pose very substantial negative exposures for the life insurers industry. ...

  • HEADLINE #1b2 - AIG Upfront (FBIC Reports September 2008 - Current) American International Group aka AIG Insurance (NYSE: AIG): Hard-nosed Super-connected Ed Liddy, Former CEO Of Allstate Insurance, Was Appointed CEO At AIG, By The U.S. Government September 21, 2008 ... AIG, Being The Recipient Of A Huge 'Too Big Too Fail' Government Bailout!  OH NO, The Selection Of Ed Liddy In This Case Will Also Bear Itself Out To Be An Enormous Mistake! FYI, Edward Liddy Was Former Allstate Insurance' President, CEO and/or Chairman from Jan. 1995 - retired April 2008 During Which Years Allstate Adversely And Negatively Impacted 'Millions of Americans' In Denying And Not Paying Claims, Significantly  Underpaying And Inclusively Not Paying Claims Properly And Promptly.

    Allstate has always been ranked and held one of the top 3 bad faith insurers positions, been proven to commit widespread fraudulent activities against policyholders and claimants, and to be one of the leading criminal enterprises (along with Hartford, State Farm and many others) in many cases since 1998 when such rankings were initiated by the FBIC organization. In the people's quest for candor and transparency in our American world of mostly non-transparency, Ed Liddy only knows the insurance industry's opaqueness better known as the "Wall of Silence and Secrecy". In FBIC's world of increased outrage, growing candor and effort for a change to transparency, and in FBIC's educated, experienced and knowledgeable estimation, the U.S. Government in appointing Ed Liddy to this position possibly unknowingly has made a huge mistake. In addition to that already cited herein, Edward Liddy has repeatedly been proven to be one who readily deceives, misrepresents, and makes false statements when he feels it necessary and/or when it suits his agenda as known from his former powerful position as CEO of Allstate insurance. As such, Ed Liddy must assume responsibility for the fraudulent and illegal goings-on during his tenure at the Allstate helm many and much of which are cited by FBIC and referenced by mainstream media throughout this website. Many other illegal goings-on and evidence have been and are held in strict confidence by FBIC since 1998.

    Knowing this, does this suggest that Ed Liddy is a compulsive liar and a person not to be trusted? Ed Liddy learned early on that in his former powerful position and tenure as CEO of Allstate and being among the very top of the leaders responsible for the secretive illegal goings on at Allstate and in the powerful insurance industry, that there is one way of doing business, "his way according to his law" aka "the Allstate way and the Allstate law", which include illegal and fraudulent activities committed repeatedly and "willingly" and which have been proven to have been/are widespread.

    He, along with many other top level bad faith insurers executives, repeatedly have been shown to couch, parse and be vague in his wording and misrepresentations which ultimately have proven to be false statements, untruths or not to be true. How can one person be so consistently wrong or does all of this make Edward Liddy a liar in FBIC's and the rest of Americans eyes or at this point maybe he no longer knows the difference between a true statement and a false statement? No entities lie or give the endless number of excuses like the insurance industry ... they wrote the book.  Edward Liddy to say the least is not the type of person Americans want running their taxpayer owned insurance Company.
     
  • HEADLINE #1b - AIG On Direct Recall (FBIC Reports September 2008 - Current) American International Group aka AIG Insurance (NYSE: AIG): Edward Liddy Has Got To Go And Be Replaced With Someone Who Is Honest, Trustworthy And Forthright! (As Previously Cited By This FBIC Note In Reference To Edward Liddy's Being Appointed CEO of AIG Sept. 21, 2008 By The U.S. Government: OH NO! Edward Liddy was former Allstate Insurance' President, CEO and/or Chairman from Jan. 1995 - retirement in April 2008 during which years Allstate adversely and negatively impacted (screwed) 'millions of Americans' in denying and not paying legitimate claims, and/or not paying legitimate claims properly, promptly or as required by law. Allstate has consistently been ranked 1, 2 or 3 worst bad faith insurers by Americans and FBIC. The insurer Allstate is believed by those in the insurance-know and has proven to be greatly lacking in proper insurance ethics, credibility, honesty and truthfulness by claimants and many of Allstate's former staff and agents ... especially if not moreso during the controversial years that Edward Liddy was at the helm of Allstate as President, CEO and Chairman (1995-2008). [When asked off-the-record by an insurance industry expert in the know if FBIC thought Edward Liddy could be "The Devil", FBIC responded that we thought the following FBIC nominees could potentially earn what they probably considered to be that distinction:

    • Allstate President-CEO-Chmn. Edward Liddy (1995 - April 2008) *
    • The Hartford President-CEO-Chmn. Ramani Ayer (1991-Present) *
    • State Farm President-CEO-Chmn. Edward B. Rust Jr (1987 - Present) *
    • SEC Chairman Christopher Cox (Aug. 3, 2005 - Jan. 20, 2009) (1)

    * Combined, these three men it is believed are responsible for the demise of upwards of maybe 10 million or more individuals (over the years they were/are still in power) and insured Americans who were 'illegally' denied on their legitimate claims to the benefit of these three notorious individuals' and their companies during their tenures in office.]
    (1) FBIC proved in it's chronicles of NYS Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's and other state AG's investigations and enforcement activities which bore out the fact that there was much corruption, wrongdoing and fraudulent activity exposed in the insurance industry found in 2004 - 2006. FBIC's chronology of the investigations exposed that the SEC (and the SEC Commissioner Cox) did next to nothing and/or did not refer one of the many frauds exposed to the Justice Department for prosecution. FBIC blames that close to 100% of this is due to SEC Commissioner Cox's fault and laxity to take action against those that commit fraud and for his somehow considering that it would be bad for American Business?). Another reason for this is because when President Bush replaced SEC Chief Donaldson (who had done a much better job) with Christopher Cox, which at the time FBIC recalls President Bush in reference saying, "Hopefully, Christopher Cox will be able to keep his mouth shut". You can see it for yourself if you wish to review this two year expose of widespread fraud and corruption found in the insurance industry by clicking here (recommended reading only if/when you have substantial available time).

    FBIC is neither surprised or shocked by the appointment as there are none or few if any business people more politically connected to the Federal Government and the administration than Edward Liddy. The selection of Edward Liddy instead should have been someone that is beyond and above reproach and Edward Liddy certainly is not one of them. Edward Liddy Has Got To Go And Be Replaced With Someone Who Is Honest, Trustworthy And Forthright! This is a disaster waiting to happen. The Congress and The Public need to keep an extra very sharp vigilant eye on the goings-on at AIG with the enormous and loose taxpayers dollars funding AIG during Liddy's tenure. Watch and keep an eye on the following headlines here as they happen, question them and be the judge for yourself if Edward Liddy is who you want representing the U.S. and Taxpayers?

The insurer Allstate is believed by those in the insurance-know and has proven to be greatly lacking in proper insurance ethics, credibility, honesty and truthfulness by claimants and many of Allstate's former staff and agents ... especially if not moreso during the controversial years that Edward Liddy was at the helm of Allstate as President and moreso as CEO. FBIC is neither surprised or shocked by the appointment as there are none or few if any business people more politically connected to the government and the administration than Edward Liddy. The selection of Edward Liddy instead should have been someone that is beyond and above reproach and Edward Liddy certainly is not one of them. This is another disaster waiting to happen. The Congress and The Public need to keep an extra very sharp eye on the goings-on at AIG with the enormous and loose taxpayers dollars funding AIG during Liddy's tenure).

Such Life Insurance Bad Faith Practices Were Exposed In The Mid-1990s Stemming From Fraudulent Activities By Life Insurers Which Practices Allegedly Began In The Mid 1980s - Mid 1990s And That Impacted Upwards of 50 Million Life Insurance 'Policyholder-Victims' (not a typo) Led By Metlife (10.7 million policyholder-victims), Prudential (11.5 million policyholder-victims), John Hancock, New York Life, Hartford Life, And A Host Of Other Insurers ... And Which Life Insurance Experts Confirm That Many Of These Same Fraudulent Practices Are Still Commonly Practiced Today).

    Metropolitan Life aka Metlife Insurance (NYSE: MET): For those of you that don't know or don't remember what pervasive bad faith life insurance practices commonly occurred in the 1980s - mid 1990s when the life insurance and annuities industry, including upwards of some 30 life insurance and annuities companies led by Metlife, Prudential, Hartford Life, and other named life insurance companies were accused and exposed for bad faith insurance practices against their own customers in the largest expose ever to hit the life insurance industry up to that point ... and FBIC may be the only source to have it in it's archives. Specific to Metlife, in August 1999, The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (Metlife), the nation's second-largest life insurer at the time, agreed to pay $1.7 billion dollars to settle lawsuits and claims accusing the company of cheating an estimated 10.7 million policies sold to 9 million of their own policyholders and potential fraud victim customers through deceptive sales practices during the years 1982-1995. Involved in a class action suit(s), it was determined that potential fraud victims/policyholders which existed from the sale of such life insurance policies and annuities, it was estimated and determined that less than 10% of those victimized would actually be made whole by this class action suit. Assuming another 5% "opted out" or chose not to participate in the class, this left approximately 85% from Metropolitan life insurance policies that were hanging onto policies that were of no value and would never benefit anyone. The states Departments of Insurance hid behind the insurance industry wall of silence and were nowhere to be found to help policyholders and victims ......... more
