Investigation into Misleading Wildfire Mailers Results in Ban from Industry

LOS ANGELES — A California Department of Insurance investigation into misleading mailers on insurance claims following wildfires has resulted in the ban of public adjuster and California Recovery Group owner/director, Argen Youssefi, 32, of Glendale. 

The investigation found California Recovery Group (CRG) and its owner, Youssefi, were soliciting business at consumers’ homes and sending mass mailers in an effort to file insurance claims related to damage caused by wildfires. The mailers prompted consumers to visit the website or call a number in order to receive wildfire smoke settlement information.
