On 10/4/17, the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) issued the following media release:
Salem — The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services, Division of Financial Regulation issued a cease-and-desist order against Gilliam County Title of Clackamas, Ore., for attempting to sell title insurance without a license.
Oregonians should beware that Gilliam County Title continues to attempt to sell insurance illegally. Anyone who has been contacted by, or purchased title insurance from, Gilliam County Title is urged to call division investigators as soon as possible at888-877-4894 (toll-free).
In July 2017, the division received a call from someone whose elderly parents had received sales pitches for title insurance from Gilliam County Title. The caller checked if Gilliam County Title was licensed and became suspicious when there was no record of the company being licensed. Gillam County Title was not then, and is not now, licensed to sell insurance in the state of Oregon.
The final order can be found online at http://dfr.oregon.gov/AdminOrders/enf-orders-2017/Gilliam%20Final%20Order%20with%20SSIG.pdf.
