Escrow Fraud

"GEICO Trust" — A Fraudulent Escrow Scam

An entity calling itself "GEICO Trust" has been contacting individuals using the official GEICO name and/or logo. These fraudsters offer to act as an escrow company, taking money from individuals for various scams ranging from payments on eBay auctions to “warranty deposits” on vehicles shipped overseas. This is not a legitimate escrow service and the money is not returned.

Emails or any other contact from "GEICO Trust," no matter how official they may appear, are not legitimate and do not originate from GEICO. GEICO does not operate any escrow service.

Note: GEICO has won an action that has allowed us to take control of the domain,, which had previously been used in conjunction with the scam.
