Car Insurance Quotes are Easy and Affordable Online

Car insurance quotes are the easiest way to find a policy that works for you and comes at a price that will fit your budget. Here are some tips for how to shop for quotes online.

As a driver in the United States, you are legally required to carry some type of car insurance. Car insurance helps protect people from the financial repercussions of being involved in a car accident, as well as from other types of car damage. While you might not mind being out of a car or having to figure out how to pay the repair bills for yourself, if you cause an accident you affect the lives of others. Therefore most states require you to carry liability insurance so that the other party involved can get their life back on track as soon as possible. Without insurance, you could potentially owe hundreds of thousands of dollars when you include property damage, medical bills, and other expenses.

Affordable Insurance Quotes Online

Although car insurance is important and necessary, it doesn’t have to be expensive. When you are looking for a car insurance policy, you will likely do so using quotes. These are free, no obligation estimates of how much you will pay for a certain amount of coverage through a specific company. Quotes are easy to find online. Here are some tips:

  • Find as many quotes as you can – the more quotes you get, the better your chances of finding the best deal available. This also allows you to get a feel for what a high, low, and average premium costs.
  • Compare coverage before price – many people jump at a low price without looking into it. If the policy doesn’t cover much, even the lowest price is a waste of money. Always make sure you are comparing quotes with similar coverage limits.
  • Research the company – only shop at reputable and legitimate companies. Research complaints and reviews online before committing to purchase.

Financial Fraud Report

FBI released in February 2012 its financial fraud report highlighting an increase in securities, corporate, and commodities fraud cases. The report was called “Financial Crimes Report to the Public.”

In fiscal year 2011, corporate fraud cases resulted in 242 indictments or informations and 241 convictions. The FBI’s securities and commodities fraud cases resulted in 520 indictments or informations and 394 convictions.  The report covers the period from October 1, 2009 to September 30, 2011. The report is available on the Department of Justice website, and details different types of fraud schemes.

On corporate fraud, the FBI “focused its efforts on cases which involve accounting schemes, self-dealing by corporate executives, and obstruction of justice.” The FBI noted the “majority of corporate fraud cases pursued by the FBI involve accounting schemes designed to deceive investors, auditors, and analysts about the true financial condition of a corporation or business entity.”

As to self-dealing by corporate insiders, such as officers and directors, the FBI investigated insider trading, kickbacks, the misuse of corporate property for personal gain, and tax violations. Corporate cases included the subprime-related corporate fraud investigation regarding Beazer Homes, a subprime-related conspiracy committed by senior executives at Colonial Bank and Taylor, Bean & Whitaker, and the Galleon Group insider trading cases, where a multibillionaire ended up being sentenced years in prison.

The FBI reported an increase in securities and commodities fraud cases, resulting from investors seeking investment opportunities ways to improve their returns. The FBI emphasized a rise of Ponzi schemes, and foreign-based reverse merger market manipulation schemes. The FBI identified investment fraud schemes, including affinity fraud, where the perpetrators and victim share similarities, such as religion or ethnic identity, pyramid schemes, Prime Bank investment fraud, advance fee fraud, promissory notes issued by unknown or nonexistent entities, Foreign Currency Exchange  fraud, and precious metals fraud. The FBI reported on broker embezzlement and late-day trading.

The financial fraud report also detailed fraud based on subjects other than financial, such health care and mortgage. The report gave tips on how the public could protect itself from the financial crimes.

Detailed in the report, also, were recent initiatives that would attempt to crack down on financial crimes. One such initiative would be the Financial Intelligence Center which would provide in depth analysis of intelligent data to identify potential scams or financial criminal systems.

Auto Insurance Quotes For High Risk Drivers Now Available At Insurance Panda

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 04, 2014, a website that is dedicated to helping its readers find the perfect car insurance quote, recently announced its decision to publish “Auto Insurance For High Risk Drivers,” an article that explains how high risk drivers can obtain car insurance policies. The article, which is available at, helps readers understand why high risk drivers could be refused car insurance, explains what to do if a driver is considered high risk, and teaches clients how to compare different policies.

According to the article, risky drivers can have a very hard time obtaining cheap coverage for many reasons, such as living in a high-crime area, owning a custom-built or high-performance car, or having a history of causing accidents or getting traffic tickets. Additionally, factors such as a driver’s age can be a determining factor, especially because teen drivers are notorious for driving fast and racking up traffic violations—and older drivers are likely to get into accidents with serious injury consequences. Some violations can automatically classify drivers as high risk, such as obtaining a DUI or DWI, and these tickets can stay on a person’s record for up to 10 years.

Drivers who have violations on their records can find a policy with the right company. To find a high risk car insurance policy, the article recommends using an insurance quote tool to find coverage options in a specific area. If one is a high risk driver, Insurance Panda recommends taking a break from driving, paying attention to common mistakes, and avoid drinking and driving at all costs.

“When you are a high risk driver, you are going to need to do extra homework when it comes to finding the cheapest plan available,” noted Insurance Panda’s article. “Make sure that you compare many different offers online because you can still find a discount when you realize that these insurance companies are fighting over each other to get your business. By sticking with insurance companies that focus on high risk coverage, you should be able to find a plan that does not break the bank.”

Individuals interested in learning more about Insurance Panda and its services can visit the company’s website for additional information. Clients are also welcome to subscribe to Insurance Panda on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ to obtain frequent updates about the company and its work.
