DFR misrepresented in phone survey

The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation is not conducting any surveys of any kind at this time.
DFR has received reports of someone conducting a telephone survey claiming to represent DFR’s Insurance Division.
The caller is a woman with an accent who states her affiliation as the “State of Vermont Insurance Division” and caller ID shows the originating phone number as 802-321-8055.
Eight questions are posed to insurance producers regarding their opinions about the insurance industry.
The questions seem to be general inquiries and do not ask for any personal information.
If you have received one of these calls and/or have given out any information, please e-mail dale.schaft@vermont.gov or call 802-828-4872.
