A flood insurance policy which exceeded federal requirements
A second flood insurance policy even though they were already covered by a condominium association or otherwise
A second flood insurance policy after an acceptable policy was refused
In some cases, banks that forced placed valueless flood insurance on mortgage holders received commissions for these purchases, according to allegations.
