Warrants were issued for Edward Prater
Oxendine said Prater was not a licensed insurance agent in Georgia, but through his agency sold the policies with improper commissions in the state.
Oxendine said his department's investigation revealed that Prater
received $2.6 million in commissions by altering documents to deceive clients about their premium payments.
In 1996 Prater co-founded the U.S. Insurance Group agency he worked for, headquartered at 736 Market Street, Chattanooga.
earned the commissions primarily on group auto and workers compensation policies, according to officials.
"We'd like to hear from anyone who has done business with Prater
and who has reason to believe they paid too much."
