FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 4, 2016

(LANSING) The Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) has issued a Cease and Desist Order against Angella Swain-Jones (alias Stacey or Sarah) and summarily suspended the insurance license of Cornell Jones and his agency Select Insurance Services of Flint. Swain-Jones has been found to be pocketing client premiums and issuing fraudulent insurance certificates. Jones has been found to be allowing illegal activity in his licensed agency.  Consumers who have purchased what they think is insurance from Swain-Jones should verify coverage with their insurer, and obtain valid insurance immediately. 
“Selling insurance in this state without a license is illegal,"said DIFS Director Patrick McPharlin. “Consumers who were sold coverage by Swain-Jones should call us immediately if they have questions.”

Background

Swain-Jones’ resident insurance producer license was revoked by DIFS on December 16, 2014, after DIFS found that she misappropriated client’s premium payments for personal use and was issuing fake insurance certificates.

After having her producer license revoked by DIFS, Swain-Jones began working at Select Insurance Services, located at 4385 Davison Rd, Burton, MI 48509. A joint review, conducted by insurers and DIFS, revealed Swain-Jones was again misappropriating client’s insurance payments and issuing fake insurance certificates.

DIFS has handed the results of its investigation over to the proper law enforcement agencies. Complete copies of all orders against Swain-Jones can be found by the following links, December 16, 2014, Case 14-942-L and November 12, 2013, Case 13-11834.
