The Oregon Insurance Division says that a large trucking company was tricked out of over $20,000 over four years after attempting to purchase insurance policies online. The trucking company believed that they were paying for insurance from Proactive Indemnity Corporation when in reality their premiums were being deposited into an account at a Pakistani bank.

If you have purchased insurance or done business with any of the following, you are asked to contact the Oregon Insurance Division immediately: Josh Capello, Ahmed Salam, Proactive Indemnity, Proactive Financial or ContingentCargo.
