Protect yourself from criminal activities. Here are tips to help you recognize, report and avoid falling victim to scams.
As society invents new ways to communicate and conduct business, consumers are targeted by scams through a variety of channels. Scam artists are getting more creative and sometimes use the names of large, reputable companies to make their cons convincing.
Consumers, including State Farm® customers, are randomly targeted by scam artists who have used our company name to lure their victims. State Farm is concerned about these scams, and whenever possible, we provide the information we receive about them to the proper authorities to help in their investigations.
Know this about State Farm:
- State Farm does not participate in lotteries or random mailings offering monetary prizes.
- State Farm representatives will not contact customers by phone to demand emergency payment of premium for a policy that is about to lapse.
- State Farm customers might occasionally receive a courtesy call from their agent. If you receive a call reminding you of an overdue payment, make sure it's your personal State Farm agent's office. If you're suspicious, hang up and call the agent's office back.
- State Farm uses regular billing periods and regularly scheduled premium notices to notify customers of any amounts they owe.
- State Farm may send additional notices by mail if a premium or other amount is overdue.
