Achievements

The Coalition was founded in 1993 as the nation’s only anti-fraud alliance speaking for consumers, insurance companies, government agencies and others.

We are helping to unify America’s fraud fight, serve as a leading voice of the anti-fraud community — and are a trusted source of information on all aspects of insurance fraud. Among our achievements...


Government affairs

Support prosecutions. Stronger state fraud prosecutions is a key Coalition goal. Staged-crash rings should not hide false claims for injury treatment amid legitimate claims, the Coalition said in a June 2016 amicus to the Texas Supreme Court. ... We also supported stronger state funding of fraud prosecutors in an amicus with the Massachusetts Supreme Court. Trial lawyers sought to undercut funding of fraud prosecutors. The court ruled for state funding, prominently citing text from the Coalition’s amicus brief.


Alerting the public

Offer consumer videos. Everyday consumers deciding about defrauding their insurer or being victimized are shown in eight 30-second video spots for member use.

Infographic.Insurance Fraud: Why Care?” tells an edgy, deterrent fraud story in an at-a-glance visual format.

Mobile app. Mobile users can conveniently access Coalition website material. The app is available free of charge via the Apple app store for IOS users, and via Google for Android users.

Social media. Daily blasts of anti-fraud messages, cases and trends via Facebook and Twitter keep consumers well-informed. The podcast FraudFeed warns consumers about scams — staged crashes, contractors, much more.


Alert consumers. We reveal fast-moving scams. Staged crashes ... swindles of seniors ... discount medical cards ... airbag cons ... insurance agents stealing your premiums ... and more. The Coalition was the first national group to alert America about fake health insurance plans being sold around the U.S. When potentially dangerous “Obamacare” identity-theft cons spread, the Coalition was a lead national voice in the news media.

Publish trends & news. The weekly insider e-publication Fraud News Weekly reveals the newest fraud cases, legislation and trends. It’s the nation’s leading outlet for breaking fraud news. ... Experts reveal new fraud trends in the online leadership quarterly Journal of Insurance Fraud in America.
