Insurance Fraud Reporting Checklist

Be Prepared. It's better to have more information than needed then to have less. Keep in mind fees are incurred when you have to have more meetings than necessary to resolve your case. Someone get's paid and therefore someone pays.  Your first defense when reporting insurance fraud is going to the state fraud bureau and the National Insurance Fraud Crime Bureau.
1.  Full details of the suspected scam - Less is not more when reporting fraud. More details are better than less in all cases so rport all that you know or that time and form space will allow.

2.  Dates, names - Date of fraudelent transactions

3.  Organizations involved, including phone numbers and addresses (if relevant)
4.  Insurance company or companies that were defrauded or did the defrauding (if relevant)

5.  Amount of money you think was lost - Provide payment statements

6.  Documents and other written material -  Provide application approval letters and any policy information

7.  Other information you think is helpful
