Fraud Alert

Check scam details

We have learned that fraudulent checks purporting to be from Horace Mann are being used to try to purchase items listed on multiple websites. This is what we know:

  • Falsified checks from “Horace Mann Insurance” (with our correct address and bank account info) have been used to purchase an item on eBay or Craigslist.
  • In at least one instance, the check was in excess of the purchase amount, with the instruction to send some of the excess funds back to a third party "for shipping."  The seller was told to keep any remainder. 

Please note these are not legitimate Horace Mann checks.  If you receive one of these checks, please call us at 800-999-1030 as well as your state's Attorney General (Consumer Protection Division). We appreciate your assistance in stopping this scam.
