Press Releases

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Division of Insurance Fraud today announced the arrest of Shane Kelley, 31, of Lantana on grand theft charges after he allegedly stole $145,000 from a client’s annuity account while working as an insurance agent for Metropolitan (MetLife) Insurance Company.
 
Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater today launched Florida’s “Learn to Save” Challenge, which recognizes the importance of encouraging children and young adults to save and learn the value of a dollar at an early age. Studies show that one in five 15-year-olds in Florida lack a basic understanding of financial literacy. The goal of Florida’s “Learn to Save” Challenge is to help curb this trend and to help Florida’s educators incorporate financial literacy lessons into their curriculum in a fun and dynamic way. The contest is open to public, private and home schooled students in Florida currently enrolled in the 6th through 12th grade.
MIAMI, Fla. – The Florida Division of Insurance Fraud today announced the arrest of Tania Michel, 41, for failing to notify the Department of Financial Services of a federal fraud conviction, continuing to work in the insurance industry after having her license expire, and knowingly misappropriated premium funds while working at an insurance agency.
