TransAmerica Fraud Alert
TransAmerica name and logo are mostly misused for fraud. This can include announcements of false sweepstakes or lottery winners enclosing counterfeit checks with our name on them; offers for mystery shoppers, counterfeit loans or employment through online ads or listings; and even false websites that look like they are affiliated with TransAmerica.
We want users of our services to be confident that when you see our name and logos, that you are indeed doing business with the TransAmerica companies.
TransAmerica takes these matters seriously and works with the appropriate regulatory and law enforcement authorities to investigate and stop such scams when possible.
However, given the prevalence of the Internet and social media, all can’t be stopped.

So, be careful out there, if something smells fishy, or it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Please be aware that none of the TransAmerica companies makes personal or business loan offers over the Internet, and a counterfeit check purporting to be from TransAmerica will not be honored–your bank will require you to cover the loss if you deposit it.
If you get a message, telephone call, or see an offer on the web that appears suspicious, or you feel that you may have been a victim of a fraudulent scheme involving the TransAmerica name or logo, please contact us and forward the information.
We’ll investigate and get back to you.
