A: If someone is using your name to purchase property and attempting to claim a policy in your name without your consent, it's important to take action to protect your rights. To address this situation, you could gather evidence that shows you did not authorize the property purchase or the use of your name, then report the matter to local law enforcement and notify the relevant parties involved, such as the real estate agent or agency and the insurance companies connected to the policy. Seeking legal advice from an attorney who specializes in property law or identity theft can be beneficial in guiding you through the process and ensuring your rights are protected.
