Law enforcement officials have issued subpoenas to the following companies as part of an investigation into the sale of force-placed insurance. Consumers who have outstanding loans for homes and other property are often required to buy force-placed coverage after allowing their own policies to lapse. Government officials suspect vendors may have gouged consumers in the sale of force-placed policies. Their main focus is mortgages, but investigators are also looking into auto and other types of force-placed loan coverage, according to a source familiar with the investigation.
