NEW YORK STATE INSURANCE DEPT. - INSURANCE FRAUDS BUREAU:
The mission of the Insurance Frauds Bureau (IFB) is to detect, investigate and prevent insurance fraud. The IFB is headquartered in New York City, with seven other offices across the State, including a new satellite office in Brooklyn. The Bureau underwent a restructuring in mid-2003, with special attention given to curbing no-fault fraud. At year-end, a team of no-fault investigators was relocated from our Manhattan headquarters to the new Brooklyn office. The Bureau is now organized into six specialized investigative units: Arson, General, Medical, Organized/No-Fault/Auto, Upstate and Workers’ Compensation. In addition, a Supervising Investigator was named to the position of Statewide Auto Unit Coordinator to track and monitor auto insurance fraud trends and coordinate fraud-fighting efforts throughout the State.
Every report of suspected insurance fraud is carefully reviewed and those with the greatest potential for prosecution and conviction are assigned to one of the specialty units for investigation. Investigators are seasoned professionals with years of law enforcement and insurance fraud investigation experience. And they are committed to the pursuit of those who commit insurance fraud.
