One problem with that is that state insurance regulation is ineffective. An example of that is TIG Insurance. TIG Insurance is listed on the database of the State of Colorado Division of Insurance as being active and selling accident and health insurance as well as crop insurance, motor vehicle, and workmen's comp insurance. It gives as an address "2079 Hartwell Lane, Fort Mill, SC 29707". Google-maps shows that address as non-existent. The State of Colorado claims the phone number of TIG insurance is 469-426-4380. That is a Texas number. The State of South Carolina claims TIG's Insurance's "domicile" is California. The State of California lists TIG Insurance as being "active" with an address of "818 W 7th St Los Angeles, CA 90017?. Corporate Wiki lists about 500 corporations at that address. I called the Texas number and spoke to a "Keith Kingman". He said that TIG Insurance stopped selling insurance in 2002 and that all the insurance commissioners know that but they don't update their websites. He said I should call the state insurance commissioners and tell them that TIG Insurance is out of business. But I notified the Colorado Division of Insurance about TIG Insurance many times since 2004.
