HANNIBAL, Mo. -- The Iowa Insurance Division has issued a cease and desist order for John A. McAfee of Hannibal, and McAfee & Associates, citing mailers and envelopes the division ruled could create a false impression the items were sent by the government.

McAfee & Associates is subject to a one year monitoring period and is ordered to pay a total of $10,000 in civil penalties and $1,800 in costs of investigation.

McAfee, the owner and registered agent of McAfee & Associates, sent mailers to Iowa consumers for the purpose of generating marketing leads for life insurance, even though that information was not disclosed on the mailers.

McAfee & Associates was previously barred on Feb. 4, 2019, from sending mailers to Iowa residents or any location in Iowa that "create a false impression that the mailer is sent from any government entity or department" and ordered to pay $5,000 to the Iowa Attorney General to be deposited in the Consumer Education and Litigation Fund.
