Coalition Against Insurance Fraud: Dodging auto premiums should be crime

Lying about garaging vehicles burdens honest drivers

 

Summer driving season is in full swing. It’s a reminder that dishonest drivers are illicitly registering their vehicles in states where premiums are lower. The Coalition is calling for states to go after these drivers.

 

Using out-of-state addresses to insure a car illegally reduces the driver’s auto premiums. It also burden honest insurance consumers who insure their vehicles with their real address. They may pay higher auto premiums thanks to drivers who cheat the system.

 

North Carolina was the first state to tackle this issue by requiring new insureds to show proof of residence before an insurer could write a policy. Out-of-staters were registering their vehicles in North Carolina for the lower auto premiums.

 

North Carolina recently went a step further and put more teeth in the existing law. Trucking firms are falsely registering their fleets in the state yet have no operations there. The new law requires businesses to prove they ply the roads in the Tar Heel state.

 

Falsely registering vehicles in New Jersey is a specific insurance crime.

 

The Coalition seeks a similar law in New York. Bills have stalled, though we and our partners there are planning to reboot in 2017.

 

A Maryland bill would’ve let insurers rescind policies of drivers who falsely registered their vehicles in the state. The state held a public meeting. An insurer told about a claimed loss in Maryland by an insured who lived in New York — where the insurer doesn’t write coverage. The insurer paid the claim to avoid a baseless yet potentially costly bad-faith suit.

 

The statehouse will revisit legislation in 2017.

 

The Coalition strongly supports targeting auto rate evasion. Tough state laws can remove a driver’s incentive to take the risk.  Consumers who lie about where they drive to lower their auto premiums add burdens to the many thousands of honest drivers. This undermines the integrity of the auto-insurance system.

 

Fraud fighters have taken the forefront on this issue. Stay alert to auto-premium evasion in your state. Tell the Coalition and your state insurance department. Falsely registering a vehicle should be a ticket to jail, not an easy source of summer spending money.

Bacall Conniff and Associates Review - Simplicity Applied in Sophisticated Accounting Services

One should achieve ease of movement and simplicity of technique to master an approach (e.g. accounting). However, all great achievements take time and it often needs years of practice to reach great levels of expertise and proficiency. This applies to almost all things in life because one doesn't need to rush things that need time to grow.

 

Bacall Conniff and Associates is using three basic principles in providing trustworthy accounting and financial services to their clients. Those principles include simplified accounting, increased controls, and zero-tolerance to redundancy. The firm makes sure to establish the right simplified accounting from the very beginning and doesn't forget to maintain simplicity throughout the entire process. The staff also gives great importance to small details and sees each of their tasks crucial for their business - from the daily tasks to the weekly and monthly financial statements and corporate year-end work.

 

Clients can identify possible risks and opportunities during the process and then perform necessary adjustments. This is because Bacall Conniff and Associates maintains awareness of the projected targets and recognize where they are at the present based on the plan.

 

The firm always does regular inventories, obtains prompt financial statements, and goes to the process of comparing actual figures with the budget. It would be better to hire dependable experts who have experience in the industry and have the necessary knowledge to see the bigger picture without losing sight of the important minor details.

 

In order to avoid redundancy on their work, the members of Bacall Conniff handle paperwork only once because real work is usually forgotten due to a lot of paperwork. It would also be nice to provide incentive schemes and to expect responsibility both to duty and performance from workers. The staff would want to be engaged in its success as long as something is simple.

 

Bacall Conniff and Associates strongly believes that their simple approach in doing their job is what made them a renowned company today. For them, simplicity is the foundation of their known efficiency and success.

Sally Caverly – the Heart of Hawkfield Gallery by Hawkfield Gallery Review

Sally Caverly is the heart, soul and spirit of the Hawkfield Gallery, to put it simply or matter-off-factly. The gallery would not have existed without Sally Caverly, owner and curator of the gallery.  As an art lover brought up by parents who were artists themselves, Sally had grown to appreciate the value of preserving and enhancing valuable products of inspired human imagination.  As a growing kid, she learned to appreciate the beauty of nature, of wildlife and of the breathtaking landscapes of New Hampshire's Lakes Region, thus, developing her keen taste for and understanding of human art as well. Art collecting and her great interest in research came about as natural products of interacting with family members, from her formal education and from her versatile work involvement.

 

Sally obtained a degree in B.A.in Marketing from Simmons College as well as another diploma from Phillips Academy in Andover.  She also has a Master’s Degree in Education. She worked as Market Research Department Head at Houghton Mifflin Company and ran online retail store. She now serves as a Director at the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, aside from pursuing her passion for art through managing Hawkfield Gallery and mentoring children with special needs.

 

Sally started quite early in the art gallery business during her teens when she was tasked at times to serve as auctioneer for her parents’ collection of American impressionist paintings and sculptures. We can say that she was not only literally born into the art scene but trained so early on to take up the joys and challenges of running a gallery. Later on in her twenties, she bought a pastel drawing of wild ducks William Henry Chandler, her first in a growing collection that has led to what she now has. It seems she has not lost that first love, as many of the paintings and sculptures in her present collection include ducks, geese and other wild birds and animals.

 

The attachment to her home environment in the East Coast, in general, is quite apparent in Sally Caverly’s art collection. Her experiences and her insights into the life and sensibilities of the people she grew up with and with those she continues to interact with has helped Hawkfield Gallery maintain its charming, rustic quality which attracts many customers who wish to experience the American life even if it is only through art works.  

  

Hawkfield Gallery’s fine arts consultants have helped Sally Caverly maintain quality service and assistance to many satisfied art buyers and collectors. Sally believes in leading others “by experience”; and by her own vast experience, she has proven that it works all the time.
