FBIC Exposes Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group For Illegal Widespread Fraud, Corruption And Bad Faith Insurance Practices That Go All The Way To The Topmost Berkshire Executives To Include Ajit Jain, Forrest Krutter, Warren Buffett

An FBIC Exclusive
Feb. 1, 2010 - Current


FBIC's five year investigation (with help from a Whistleblower) Exposes And Confirms Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group (BHICG) For Illegal Widespread Fraud, Corruption And Bad Faith Insurance Practices That Go All The Way To Include The Topmost Berkshire Executives Exec. V.P. Ajit Jain, General Counsel & Corp. Secretary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Forrest Krutter And Yes, Chairman & CEO Warren Buffett.
 
This is an exclusive ongoing investigation which FBIC started in 2005 and now published for the first time FBIC exposes and confirms the allegations as fact that were made and submitted to FBIC by a Whistleblower in 2005 and reveals Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group committing illegal bad faith insurance practices, complicated and convoluted systemically-driven schemes of frauds as a business-usual standard course of practices to this very day to intentionally avoid payment of claims while fraudulently maximizing cash flows and float ... but the illegal practices don't stop there, they just start there and per the Whistleblower the substantial number of illegal practices referenced herein are "just the tip of the iceberg" as there is widespread and an endless number more that accordingly are not covered herein ... read on and understand that the extent of the fraudulent practices behind the scenes are endless.

Some of the other illegal schemes and conspiracies to commit fraud covered herein include but are not limited to, for example, the looting and accelerating of depleting the treasuries of non-Berkshire-Hathaway owned companies leaving these companies that Berkshire Hathaway does/did business with under their control, deficient and lacking adequate funds to satisfy and pay policyholders claims ... and more. All-in-all the frauds could involve and total an estimated 50 billion dollars or more of illegally siphoned off funds, claims not paid, and/or payments delayed over the past 10 years.

Such frauds, being perpetrated by Berkshire Hathaway reinsurers-insurers companies, are ongoing, growing and presently only getting stronger to this very day and were/are illegal ill-gotten gains to the benefits of Berkshire Hathaway ... such repeated illegal acts were and are perpetrated by and involve the senior-most and top level executives at Berkshire Hathaway starting at the operational level with Tom Ryan, V.P. Berkshire Hathaway Group Of Insurance Companies, Vice-President National Indemnity Company of Mid-America, and President Resolute Management Inc. New England Division, V.P. of National Indemnity (reinsurance) and under and including a collaboration agreement with Cavell America and Ken Randall America as applicable in charge of handling insurance claims management for One Beacon Insurance Company f/k/a Commercial Union Insurance Company, Kemper and American Motorist Insurance Company a/k/a AMICO, Stonewall Insurance Company, Uniguard Insurance Company, Seaton and Transport Insurance Companies and many other Companies also to include formerly V.P. National Indemnity Company of Bank America, and presently to further include V.P. National Fire and Marine Insurance Company leading directly to Ajit Jain, Exec. V.P. insurance-reinsurance operations, and continuing all the way up the corporate level ladder to the top to include Forrest Krutter, General Counsel & Corp. Secretary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., and then leads to the top of of the corporate ladder up to and with the alleged direct knowledge of Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway's Chairman & CEO at the very least per Tom Ryan's alleged repeated admissions and exaltations of knowledge of their illicit actions internally to staff being knowingly and known to the "Chief" (Warren Buffett) and with his approval. (Notably: Is this the very reason why Warren Buffett constantly and repeatedly cites and praises Ajit Jain with his tiny staff 'solely' praises to ad-nausea for 'his' over-the-top, awe-inspiring, overwhelming outstanding company performance as if Ajit was a God, as very simply it is Ajit Jain that knows where all the following, foregoing and the rest of the "tip of the iceberg" that we don't know about reinsurance-insurance 'expose related' frauds and their bones are buried resulting in the company visibly [and fraudulently] increasing the company's float from $20 billion to an overwhelming $70+ billion in just the past five (5) years period?)

FBIC announces the results of this continuing five (5) years investigation originating in 2005 from 'allegations' received and provided 'exclusively' to FBIC by a Whistleblower who provided extensive evidence and allegations exposing 'widespread bad faith insurance practices and extensive systemic frauds' committed and conducted on a daily business-as-usual basis by Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group specifically their 'Reinsurance' Company "National Indemnity Company" (NICO) perpetrated against both small and large-sized Companies which were left with no other choice but to bring lawsuits potentially involving thousands of people illegally denied, delayed and deprived on their insurance benefits and payment of their insurance claims.

The Whistleblower evidence provided FBIC alleges that Berkshire Hathaway broke an innumerable and inordinate number of laws of which the following represent "just the tip of the iceberg" and includes:

  • Pervasive and Repeated Non-payment Of Claims In Bad Faith
  • Widespread Systemic Use Of Bad Faith Insurance Claims Practices And Fraudulent Schemes
  • Falsify Financial Records
  • Defraud Policyholders, Claimants And Insureds
  • Lie And Defraud Insurance Commissions
  • Maintain Reserves In Cases As Low As 10% Of Established Minimum $$$ Amounts Required
  • Systemically Strip And Loot The Treasuries, Reserves, Premiums And Cash Flows Of Numerous Companies It Does Business With, Hastening If Not Responsible For The Insolvency And/Or Demise Of These Companies
  • Write Finite Insurance Plans That Were/Are Not Insurance But In Reality Loans
  • Commit Illegal Dealings And Become The Party Responsible To Satisfy The Obligations Of Other Companies Based On Surreptitious Transfer Of Assets And Other Conduct That Falsely Enriched Berkshire Hathaway Companies And Left These Other Companies Undercapitalized And Unable To Pay Their Claimants Obligations, And Causing Berkshire Hathaway Companies To Become In Control And Alter Egos And The Real Parties-In-Interest Under These Other Companies Policies
  • Commit Numerous Other Illegal Acts And Dealings Regarding Tortious Breach Of The Implied Covenant Of Good Faith And Fair Dealing

Regarding the "Widespread Systemic Use Of Bad Faith Insurance Claims Practices And Fraudulent Schemes", they all had one thing in common, to put-off and/or do whatever necessary, legally or illegally, not to pay claims ultimately benefiting parent corporation Berkshire, their own company and themselves personally. One such example of the many alleged examples of outrageous fraudulent schemes and activities committed included a wide and extremely diverse range of illegal acts which included looting the treasury(ies) of (non-Berkshire-owned insurance companies i.e. Kemper Companies [which includes American Motorists Insurance Company (AMICO)] div. Lumbermens Insurance Group in liquidation (a/k/a 'runoff') which had 'cap cover' reinsurance policies issued by Berkshire Hathaway reinsurance company "National Indemnity Company". 

In this case much if not most of Kemper Companies, which includes Parent Lumbermens Group and active entity American Motorists Insurance Company (AMICO), a non-owned Berkshire insurance company group originally with an estimated total upwards of some $7 billion in entirety in it's treasuries ultimately had a significant portion of upwards of some $6.7 billion paid out and/or transferred by/through Berkshire Companies entities (i.e. National Fire & Marine, NICO, NICO Mid-America, Columbia, Randall America the same "Randall" entity owned by Ken Randall America associated with the ownership of Randall & Quilter) and before allegedly selling it off to an entity of UK-based Randall & Quilter, leaving it with inadequate funds left to pay policyholders outstanding unpaid claims (see Santa Fe Braun court case details referenced herein).

Furthermore in this case through a number and a maze of collaboration agreements, Berkshire Hathaway (BH) actually assumed authority ("dominion") of Kemper Companies, [or Kemper Companies Group under the name American Motorists Insurance Company (aka AMICO)], thereby actually taking over Kemper Companies, a group of companies they reinsure as well as taking over (the reinsured's) Kemper Companies' AMICO daily operations and actually becoming 'in complete control' (an action referred to as 'alter ego') of Kemper Companies and AMICO, the Insured and Reinsured Company  ... in addition to (much more):

  • widespread and systemic illegal bad faith insurance practices and fraud committed regularly by Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group members (incl. National Indemnity Insurance Companies, Columbia Insurance Co., National Fire And Marine Insurance Co., National Liability & Fire Insurance Co., and other Berkshire Insurance and Reinsurance Companies, etc.) requiring companies with insurance and reinsurance policies issued by Berkshire Companies to bring never-ending lawsuits to collect on claims not paid;

  • pervasive frauds found within their reinsurance operations, including finite reinsurance policies written that in reality were loans;

  • systemic as business usual frauds perpetrated in collusion with third party claims management administrator companies both owned by Berkshire Insurance Companies Group to include Resolute Management Inc. (moreso The New England Division of which Tom Ryan is President) the Company formed in 2006, and Cavell America a/k/a Cavell U.S. owned by Randall & Quilter (R&Q), a UK-based headquartered Company not owned by Berkshire working under a collaboration agreement which put Cavell U.S. under Berkshire Hathaway's 'complete' (100%) control

  • utilizing the heavy usage of questionable finite and cap-cover reinsurance agreements written by Berkshire Hathaway with the other insurance companies they manage (i.e. Seaton, Stonewall, Transport Insurance Companies, etc. that in reality were loans.

  • along with numerous other frauds as indicated by the Whistleblower involving fraudulent policies written which were in reality loans, parties working in concert and collusion to commit improper, bad faith and/or fraudulent claims handling and other fraudulent acts inclusive in their normal and regular daily operating activities, and as well as inclusive in their liquidation and 'Runoff' operations

    ... all of the above effecting insured and reinsured companies with finite and/or cap cover reinsurance policies issued by "National Indemnity Insurance Companies". National Indemnity Company is a little known power-house Berkshire-owned reinsurance company based in Berkshire headquartered Omaha Nebraska where it can be closely controlled and monitored and where higher level money decisions can be and are made regularly related to these activities, by/between Berkshire's top-most corporate executives Ajit Jain, Forrest Krutter, whether to pay or not pay their reinsurance claims and thereby controlling and through aforementioned means maximizing the available $$$ float. Of Note: Warren Buffett admits to speaking with Ajit Jain at Stamford, CT-based General Reinsurance  routinely committing illicit whatever-it-takes systemic schemes to avoid payment of insurance-reinsurance claims and related expenses most all attributed to the illegal maneuvering and illicit management of Berkshire Hathaway's available $$$ float ...  all Berkshire Hathaway illicit acts represented by the Whistleblower as being just "the very tip of the iceberg".

    The following 2008 media article references and confirms much of FBIC's Whistleblower 2005 allegations and accusations of 'various frauds, bad faith improper claims handlings' being perpetrated along with confirming mudslinging and admissions of various wrongdoings by and between the actual parties involved in the Whistleblower's allegations as alleged in current ongoing litigation and arbitration proceedings brought and made by and between the actual involved parties themselves in their legal court complaints, "National Indemnity, Seaton and Stonewall Insurers, Cavell and Ken Randall America/Randall & Quilter Runoff deals gone bad spark complex legal war", by actual parties involved in this expose'. In addition, the following is 'one' of the referenced several lawsuits between the alleged guilty parties brought November 12, 2008 in the UK (away from the eyes of the U.S.) referencing and accusing the other of committing such "frauds" Cavell USA Inc. and Kenneth Edward Randall vs. Seaton Insurance, Stonewall Insurance Companies. (Note: There are pertinent accusations of illegal activities indicated in the referenced lawsuits, countersuits and counterclaims, some which are reflective and confirm the Whistleblower's earlier allegations between the parties involved.)

These allegations against Berkshire Hathaway (BH), prompting and resulting in a five (5) year investigation by FBIC, were leaked to FBIC by a Whistleblower starting in May 2005. The allegations in 2005 also involved a number of other non-Berkshire Hathaway owned conspiratorial companies working in concert to include Cavell U.S. (more on Cavell and Randall & Quilter from the Whistleblower later).  FBIC has spent the greater part of the five years investigation researching and trying to disprove the veracity of the allegations and was unable to find fault or invalidate the Whistleblower's BH allegations. FBIC pulled all of the dockets (Courts Register of Actions) of all the listed Whistleblower leaked cases, spoke to some of the court cases plaintiff attorneys, read key parties court testimonies and court complaints, etc. and to the best of FBIC's knowledge found the information to be true.

The Whistleblower communicated commissions of the alleged widespread bad faith insurance practices and outrageous fraudulent schemes and activities by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies executives especially in their Reinsurance and Runoff (liquidation) operations, are pervasive, systemic and ongoing to this very day and have been going on quietly for upwards of more than the past decade. Such commissions of alleged illicit and illegal acts and activities go all the way up the corporate executive ladder to the very senior and top-most level executives at Berkshire Hathaway. The Whistleblower’s allegations of committing and/or knowingly conspiring in such fraudulent schemes, unlawful business activities and bad faith insurance practices intended to defraud policyholders amongst the higher and highest-ups at B
erkshire Hathaway implicated include:

  • Thomas M. Ryan, Vice President National Liability and Fire Insurance Company, Vice President National Indemnity Company (NICO), President Resolute Management, Inc. New England Division, Vice President National Indemnity Company (NICO) of Mid-America, Vice President National Fire and Marine Insurance Company and Vice President of The Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group and others as previously referenced; (Whistleblower: Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies  Group intentionally and repeatedly did not pay and/or put-off paying claims to increase Berkshire Hathaway's cash flow and the float which decisions not to pay in many cases went all the way to the top at Berkshire Hathaway.

    You can read the admissions of illegal bad faith insurance practices committed in current confirming court allegations and testimonies as indicated in the ongoing 2009 litigation in the CELANESE INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION v. ONE BEACON INSURANCE COMPANY (formerly known as Commercial Union Insurance Company), ETALS., Case #SUCV2006-1625-BLS2 from the COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS SUFFOLK, SS Superior Court in confirming that the FBIC Whistleblower allegations of bad faith claims handling and fraudulent wrongdoings by the involved parties in 2005 and prior (going back to 1999), are in fact alive and well, ongoing and growing in this very 2009-2010 day.

    READ THE FOLLOWING
    (below) Berkshire's Tom Ryan's following court testimonies and the testimonies of members of his staff (which links follow below underlined links in blue), which confirm in agreement their company's inept excuses in their commission of not paying years overdue claims, repeatedly in many cases over multi-year periods up to 5 years and more negligently committing bad faith insurance practices by his Berkshire-owned insurance Group which the Whistleblower confirms was controlled by Ajit Jain and Forrest Krutter and which Ryan allegedly told his staff that Buffett was aware of and okayed:

  • Ajit Jain, located in Stamford, CT offices, is Executive Vice President of Berkshire Hathaway's Insurance Companies Group, President of Berkshire Hathaway's Reinsurance Companies. Jain also holds various senior executive-level titles at Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary insurers including Exec. Vice President of National Indemnity Co (NICO), a little known reinsurance powerhouse involved in much of the alleged illegal activities. NICO is listed as headquartered at Berkshire Hathaway corporate headquarters in Omaha, NE that is alleged to be the vehicle for much of the fraudulent activity. Jain is alleged to have various and overall direct knowledge and indirect involvement in the alleged Berkshire Hathaway fraudulent bad faith insurance companies practices and indirect knowledge of some of the operational fraudulent schemes ... and authority and say (per Tom Ryan, etc.) as to whether claims, and other larger decisions,  etc. were/are to be paid, and other larger payments i.e. legal expenses, etc. can be made; Warren Buffett has frequently and openly reiterated that Ajit Jain is the only executive at Berkshire that he religiously speaks to everyday 'without fail';
  • Forrest Krutter, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has various and overall direct knowledge and indirectly semi-active involvement in the alleged Berkshire Hathaway fraudulent bad faith insurance companies practices and fraudulent schemes ... and alleged authority and say as to whether claims, and other larger decisions,  etc. were/are to be paid, and other larger payments i.e. legal expenses, etc. can be made;
  • Warren Buffett, Chairman where there is strong evidence, (much of which is alleged by the Whistleblower), that conclude that through Ryan, Jain and Krutter, Buffett had direct knowledge as well as limited indirect involvement in his company's alleged committed systemic looting of customers treasuries, bad faith insurance practices and fraudulent schemes and activities that have reaped Berkshire Hathaway Inc. billions of dollars at the expense of many thousands of policyholders and claimants;
     
Also implicated in the alleged fraudulent Berkshire Hathaway reinsurance runoff schemes higher-ups at other companies include:

  • Pam Hoelsken, Chief Operating Officer of Cavell America a/k/a Cavell USA (owned by Randall & Quilter headquartered in the U.K.), whose owners Ken E. Randall and Alan Kevin Quilter are also implicated as they are alleged to have direct knowledge if not involvement of the illicit activities. (As of 2005 - 2010), Cavell America aka Cavell USA (owned by UK-based Randall & Quilter aka R&Q entities) are alleged to either manage and/or have the same illegal questionable business claims management relationships, involved in many of the same and similar lawsuits and allegations against it include: Seaton Insurance, Stonewall Insurance, Transport Insurance, OneBeacon Insurance, Kemper Insurance or aka American Motorists Insurance Company (AMICO) div. Lumbermens Group, GEICO Insurance, Republic Insurance, Ken Randall America, ACE Brandywine (previously sold in 2006 to R&Q under major opposition and protest by other major U.S. insurers for the reason that R&Q was not adequately financed to handle the much larger run-off of ACE Brandywine), Equitas (UK) aka Equitas Management, Resolute Management, and other entities all have or are alleged to use or have such cap covers-finite reinsurance policies that (per the Whistleblower) are in reality "loans", and related business relationships with Berkshire Hathaway Insurance-Reinsurance Companies and/or are owned by Berkshire Hathaway (i.e. Resolute Management, formed o/a 2006 to expand and grow these same related illicit operations beyond the U.S. and UK to other countries) or may be/are under Berkshire Hathaway's control. Randall & Quilter entities and related other entities are defendants in several lawsuits alleging the same related business practices intended to defraud policyholders).

FYI, reinsurance is simply insurance for your insurance company in the event you make a claim or bring a lawsuit to be able to collect on a claim denied. It is important to note and for policyholders to know that it is primarily reinsurers that control and pay much if not most of all policyholders and third parties insurance claims (and not insurance companies that policyholders buy insurance from, send premiums to and have insurance policies with).

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has grown to be among the largest, if not the largest, reinsurers (i.e. General Reinsurance Company, National Indemnity Insurance Co., etc.), run-off and third party claims management administrators with significant operations (e.g. Resolute Management, etc.) in the United States and working in concert with other non-Berkshire-owned companies outside the U.S.. In addition, Berkshire Hathaway owns a multitude of insurance and reinsurance companies in the U.S. Berkshire Hathaway owns upwards of 40-50 insurance, reinsurance, runoff and third party claims administrator companies, many working 'very closely' together. Berkshire Hathaway is among the U.S. largest group insurers and insurance industry operators.

We realize that there is some redundancy in our expose' which is not intentional. In most cases it is because there are numerous cases where the same illegal activities are involved in many and such cases where the defendants and parties are repeated and the same defendants and parties are named in many cases and with the same allegations. As evident by the Whistleblower allegations which will be published and announced here on this website and which will follow, FBIC's ongoing investigation and expose includes a significant number of legal cases, legal testimony and involves many companies with questionable reinsurance and cap-covers reinsurance illegal activities which comprises a substantial amount (truck-loads) of information too much to publish here but that which we will expose and condense to take as little time as possible to put up here on the website and make as easily readable as possible. Yet with all FBIC has learned about Berkshire Hathaway's alleged illegal bad faith insurance, reinsurance, runoff and third party claims administrator operations and alleged illicit fraudulent schemes and activities, we know they "represent just the very tip of the iceberg".

Allegations made by the whistleblower to FBIC starting five years ago involve billions of dollars of illegal and ill-gotten bad faith insurance gains to Berkshire Hathaway and other co-conspirators at the expense of America's policyholders and claimants ... and even more importantly as a result the subsequent losses to "hundreds of thousands" moreso "millions" of Americans and victims, and the loss of their well-being, the loss of wealth and the annual loss of millions of U.S. jobs annually, FBIC submits this proposal for jobs creation and solution to Americans loss of wealth retention due to widespread bad faith insurance practices and claimants being denied and not being paid on their claims properly if at all ... and asks The President to consider and help.

The FBIC-Whistleblower story highlights in detail and summarizes when possible the real behind the scenes goings-on and illicit operations supported and confirmed with numerous court cases, documents and testimonies, contributing to further expose just how widespread the frauds and illegal bad faith insurance activities are within Berkshire Hathaway operations and the U.S. insurance and limitedly regulated but mostly unregulated reinsurance, third party claims administrators and runoff segments of the insurance industry today.

FBIC, which operates mainly on donations from the Public made on this website, with limited means knew it did not have the adequate resources to have undertaken such a daunting and enormous investigative task. Even though it has spent the better part of five years investigating the veracity of the Whistleblower's allegations being limited without having the benefit of subpoena power. FBIC's investigations are presently continuing and ongoing. FBIC has learned enough on its own investigations that it agrees with the Whistleblower that the many court cases and testimonies in FBIC's possession represent just "the very tip of the iceberg".

Note: FBIC are not lawyers ... FBIC is a non-profit consumer insurance advocacy and we let the American People be the judge and make their own decisions on related insurance issues esp. since we have learned over the years and gotten to the point not to expect the questionably corrupt as well as grossly understaffed state insurance regulatory agencies to do any meaningful investigations and the states' attorneys offices are understaffed to handle such investigations on their own ... in this case the federal investigative authorities are needed and essential to investigate the widespread bad faith insurance practices, fraud and corruption that exists 'herein' and is so pervasive and prevalent in our country today and for the past several decades. To the best of FBIC's knowledge and due-diligence, and limited without having subpoena power in its investigations toolbox, and with FBIC's ongoing investigations, FBIC has confirmed as much of the information as was possible and of note was unable to disprove any of the Whistleblower's allegations.

The Whistleblower's allegations will start and be cited here shortly followed by supporting court cases of illegal bad faith insurance practices and fraudulent activities. (Note: There will be frequent updates, many more exposed court cases and testimonies to follow in the weeks and months ahead).

(Attention Plaintiff Insurance Attorneys: FBIC's investigation into Berkshire Hathaway-National Indemnity-Cavell-Resolute Management bad faith insurance and fraudulent practices continues and is ongoing as there are many more cases being fought in court rooms. The investigation was initiated as a result of information received by FBIC from a Whistleblower. FBIC is a consumer insurance advocacy and not lawyers. FBIC requests whistleblowers and/or plaintiff lawyers to please send FBIC more related court cases, court case complaints, supporting documentation and court testimonies by clicking: FbicLawyerInquiry@badfaithinsurance.org, or Whistleblowers, ... (anonymously if you wish so as not to get involved or be referenced ... that is unless you and/or your law firm wish to be referenced and cited for your lawyerly contribution to the U.S. and help in this significant investigative expose 'mentioned' with your published materials which we are glad to do with your permission).

Most Americans don't believe for a minute and suspect that the 2008-2009 felony convictions of five (5) top and senior level Berkshire Hathaway owned General Reinsurance executives which includes Ron Ferguson, Christopher Garand, Elizabeth Monrad, Robert Graham, John Houldsworth, and one (1) AIG executive Christian Milton could not possibly represent a one-off solo occurrence of fraudulent activity by Berkshire Hathaway and General Re ... rather Berkshire Hathaway Insurance-Reinsurance Companies Group appear to be consumed with systemic fraud practices perpetrated by bad faith insurance, reinsurance and related by Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies (and AIG). In addition, in spite of committing a $500 million fraud, these convicted felons not only received extremely light beyond the court sentencing guidelines, but they are not in prison for various reasons ... which this decade pretty much follows the usual court leniency and non-prison legal chicanery which occurs when white-collared top level insurance executives are found guilty of committing fraudulent crimes ... which should be a real embarrassment by the U.S. to the rest of the world. There's more, much more ... and just the tip of the iceberg.
 
Berkshire Hathaway has shown more and more to be overwhelmingly consumed with pervasive and widespread fraudulent activities as Americans grow to learn, now with the FBIC-Whistleblower expose', that the GenRe-AIG case is not just a one-off but is part of a pattern of a larger number of many other similar and various other illegal and criminal insurance-reinsurance based activities as supported by the further fraudulent activities such as in the 2009 former Ex-Chief of GenRe British Unit, Milan Vukelic, whose illegal activities put him in prison in the U.S. for 18 months in 2000, then got him fired at GenRe in the U.S. in 2005 and now in 2009 got him banned from ever holding a position of trust in the financial-services industry in Britain and Australia after he was found to have helped companies illegally conceal losses. The pervasive frauds and widespread bad faith insurance companies practices destroys hundreds of thousands companies and individuals victims and the loss of ultimately upwards of millions of jobs annually throughout all industries ... lost forever and never to be regained to the sole benefit of the bad faith insurance companies and their executives ... just the tip of the iceberg.

The following mainstream media articles about Berkshire Hathaway Insurance-Reinsurance Companies related crimes internationally (and it's Chairman Warren Buffett), specifically selected now to recap in retrospect as written previously. Since the U.S. insurance industry is so powerful and among the U.S. largest advertisers, most of the time their illegal activities don't reach the U.S. mainstream media but have to be read via international mainstream media. Even though these criminal, illegal and illicit insurance activities have proven to be widespread, state regulators, as recently proven, repeatedly do little and repeatedly decline to investigate. Federal investigatory authorities, such as The U.S. Justice Department and the FBI although they say they are very much interested, need someone in charge to order and focus on a sweeping investigation ... (see following selective pertinent articles of the time which illegal activities are unaffected and still widespread now such just as they were back in 2004 and 2005):

Insurance companies illegal activities destroy companies, jobs and kill people. There are many more cases supporting Berkshire Hathaway Insurance Companies Group primarily reinsurance related bad faith insurance practices and other related activities of fraud that will follow along with supporting court testimonies, to name a few to include with Whistleblower comments as may be indicated ... just the tip of the iceberg:

  • Continental Casualty Etal v. Borg Warner 04CH01708 (IL-Circuit Court Cook Cty) (WB Comment: The complaint sets the total claim value at $50M, but Ms. Hoelsken has only set up a reserve of $5M because of the effect that a full reserve would have on the financials. If the reserves were set at prudent levels there would be no justification for a dividend to shareholders. As an example, in the case of Borg Warner the total claim value is $50 million. Ms. Hoelsken will not post that number in reserve, and has instead posted $5 million. She has stated that she would rather "stairstep" the reserve in order to keep the financial position where it was planned. This allows the shareholders of these three companies to take dividends, as they are reported as having a surplus of $15 million. This effectively defrauds the policy holders of the funds necessary to pay the claims and will cause the companies to go insolvent sooner than necessary. That is the principal reason they have redomesticated these companies to Rhode Island, as they can take advantage of the State's schemes of insolvency to then walk away from any remaining liability. Another example of this reserving practice is the Occidental Petroleum case. Continental Casualty Etal v. Borg Warner Complaint
