TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty issued an Order to American Fidelity Services, LLC (AFS) to cease and desist engaging in the unauthorized and unlicensed business of a home warranty association in the state of Florida. AFS is a limited liability company registered in the state of Maryland.

The Office conducted an investigation and determined that AFS is offering its American Fidelity Home Warranty program without a license through its online website: www.afhwarranty.com. The plan offers coverage for all common household appliances and systems. AFS has 21 days to respond to the Order.

Consumers should research companies before they buy insurance. The Office has an online "company search" tool that allows consumers to determine whether a company is authorized to sell insurance products in Florida.
