Albany-- If a hurricane causes damage in south Georgia, you may depend on your insurance company to help you recover. If you're not careful, you could get taken for a ride.

Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine wants to help you get smart about your auto, home, life and health insurance plans. He launched a public education program called Insure U.

You can attend Insure U University online to learn how to avoid being scammed by the growing threat of fake insurance companies. Reputable agents say the free service is a good way to protect your most valuable assets.  

"With any financial decision, you need to be educated so you know what you're buying, why you're buying it and hopefully that you're going to get the results out of it or the protection that you really need," says Insurance Agent Lydia Livingston.

You can also contact the Insurance Commissioners office to make sure a company is legit before you buy a policy.

You can visit the Insure U site at  http://www.gainsurance.org/CONSUMERS/InsureU/home.aspx.
