Insurance agent loses license after alleged DNA fraud

DNA genetic insurance agent

The former employee of Mukilteo State Farm following a number of different ethical violations.

A former insurance agent named Jaime Sue Joyner, previously of Mukilteo State Farm, has now had her license revoked by Washington state after investigators discovered that she had been involved in a number of activities that are not permitted.

Joyner was allegedly involved in a number of different ethical violations while she was on the job.

Among the ethical violations of which she has been accused was submitting a sample of her own DNA in place of that of a client, pretending that it belonged to that individual, instead of herself. The thirty seven year old former insurance agent had previously left the industry in 2010 and allowed her license to lapse in the year that followed. Now, her license has been officially revoked, as the result of an investigation from the Office of the Washington Insurance Commissioner.

The insurance agent was investigated following a number of complaints from policyholders.

The office was responsible for looking into complaints regarding license violations by insurance professionals with respect to the laws of the state. A spokespDNA genetic insurance agenterson for the insurer, Kara Klotz, said that Joyner has not made any attempt to appeal the findings of the agency. The police did not take part in the proceedings of this case.

Klotz went on to explain that in 2012, Sean Joyner, the husband of the former insurance agent, had also been disciplined in connection with these ethical violations. That said, he continues to have an active license and has not faced any disciplinary action from Washington since that time.

Aside from submitting her own DNA in place of that of her customers, Joyner also allegedly filled in insurance applications and forged her clients’ signatures without either their consent or their awareness. In certain instances, Joyner was said to have taken her own oral swab tests in order to produce genetic samples that could be submitted under the name of a client, instead of as herself. These types of test are commonly requested by insurers in order to be able to look into the overall health of a potential customer.
