Anyway, he probably was just an anomaly and isn't even in the business anymore.

Another possible anomaly:
When I was renting apartments in my 20s in Dallas, I always bought renters' insurance. One of my brother's friends from grade school through h.s. was a State Farm agent in our hometown. Our mothers were close friends. I had known him almost 20 years and signed up for renters' insurance with him.

Imagine my surprise when a friend reported old P had just been hauled off to jail and, ultimately, prison for embezzling customer payments and not paying their premiums . . . for years.

That was not entirely State Farm's fault, but it definitely left me with a bad feeling that for quite a number of years I paid for and thought I had insurance and, apparently, didn't.
