Coalition Against Insurance Fraud – Arsonist to insurers: Check fire claims more closely

kenny_allen_fire

Closer look deters arsonists, discovers scams, benefits all policyholders

Kenny Allen was a likable fellow. He went to church, coached youth basketball in the Muncie, Ind. area, and was making his way through life with limitless potential ahead.

He also lived in a secret world: He was an insurance thief. Kenny was a driving force behind the largest home arson ring in Indiana history. And one of the largest ever in the U.S. His gang helped torch at least 73 buildings while he sang hymns of righteousness in pews.

Insurers were easy to defraud, Allen says. Their adjusters were so intent on making customers happy — he contends — that they rarely asked tough questions. Insurers could’ve quickly exposed the claims for burned homes as money grabs with a little more effort.

Kenny went straight after nearly five years in federal prison. He admits he screwed up, and today gives workshops for investigators to help make amends. He partners with Mike Vergon, the former ATF agent who arrested him. They’re friends and supporters in life — a touching story of Kenny’s redemption.

Yet his saga speaks to a bigger dilemma for insurers. If they investigate too many claims too closely, they risk policyholders thinking they’re cold and money-grubbing.

If insurers let too many suspect claims slide through too easily, they risk being prey for hunters like Kenny was. This slippery slope can grow fraud losses, help raise premiums and — yes — reinforce a belief among many consumers that insurers are cold and money-grubbing.

Life isn’t always fair when you’re an insurance company, no matter how many good deeds you perform. Corporations are targets of consumer upset simply because they’re big and make money.

Checking closely into suspicious claims can trigger a lot of emotions. Fair or not, people’s feelings of aggrievement or entitlement can quickly damage an insurer’s reputation. Especially when viral social posts can reach millions of sympathetic consumers in just hours.

Over the longterm, it’s a risk worth taking, and a story worth telling.

Insurers should do a far better job of telling people why they fight fraud — and why all policyholders benefit.

Being justifiably known for protecting policyholders from thieves seems like a pretty good way to build a business brand. And doing right by consumers.

If Kenny Allen’s right, taking the easy way out could’ve cost insurers more than millions in false arson claims. He’s the first to admit, it’s a miracle nobody died in his fires.

Insurance Fraud Advocacy : Inspector General in New York named “Fraud Fighter of the Year”

Award bestowed by New York Alliance Against Insurance Fraud

March 16, 2016, New York, NY — Cited for an aggressive campaign to counter workers-compensation scams throughout the state, New York Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott was honored with the “Fraud Fighter of the Year” award by the New York Alliance Against Insurance Fraud.

The award was presented during NYAAIF’s recent annual meeting held here.

NYAAIF Chair Jim Berrigan credited the IG’s leadership in compiling an impressive record of prosecuting wide-ranging workers-compensation cases. They included fraud by claimants, medical providers and businesses.

“The IG’s efforts put teeth behind our anti-fraud marketing campaigns in providing valuable deterrence though public awareness and vigorous prosecution,” Berrigan said in presenting the award. He also commended Scott for reaching out and working with insurers to identify fraud trends and develop strategies to counter them.

NYAAIF also previewed its 2016 consumer campaign. It will include TV & radio ads, billboards and a roaming “Fraud Squad” van plastered with anti-fraud messages. The campaign theme is “Insurance Fraud Hurts . . . Everyone.” It launches in May.

Frank Orlando, head of the fraud unit of the state Department of Financial Services, briefed fraud fighters on no-fault fraud trends in the state. The Massachusetts Insurance Fraud Bureau profiled a huge automobile rate- evasion ring that operated in New York and Massachusetts.

NYAAIF also elected four members to three-year board terms: Jim Potts (New York Central Mutual), Frank Sztuk (Hanover Insurance), Ken Jones (Travelers) and James Egner (Farmers Insurance).

NYAAIF is an alliance of 104 insurance companies in New York. NYAAIF was created in 1999 to educate consumers about the cost of insurance fraud and help consumers avoid becoming victims.

Haws Corporation Tempered Water Nevada USA, Singapore: Care and Repair

Here at Haws we are frequently asked if there are any periodic maintenance tips that we can offer for installed products. All Emergency Equipment is required to be activated weekly by ANSI. Purging the standing water out of the lines reduces buildup of stagnate water and helps remove rust from pipes in galvanized units.

In addition, purging helps guarantee that the water supply has not been inadvertently turned off, that there are not any missing or broken parts and most importantly that the units are working properly. Eyewash maintenance is especially important. In most units there is a SP509 inline screen strainer between the eyewash valve and bowl that must be periodically cleaned. The strainer cap must be removed by a 3/8” hex wrench and the screen can then be accessed and cleaned. During the weekly testing it is also crucial to check pathways leading to the unit to make sure there are not any obstructions that would hinder the access and use of the unit.

Drinking Fountains from 2003 to now have a front access 5874 push button valve which has a screen strainer under the cartridge that should be periodically cleaned depending on site conditions. In order to clean the strainer, water must be shut off to the unit and using the spanner wrench that comes with the unit, remove the push button, the inside ring nut and cartridge. The gasket screen should come out with the cartridge and should be cleaned thoroughly.

Water coolers also need periodic cleaning. The fan blows air over the condenser fins, so the condenser should be vacuumed every 6 months to remove lint and dust that builds up (cleaning may be need to occur more often if the unit is in a dirty environment). This is crucial to the proper functioning of the unit, because lint and dirt buildup causes the unit to overheat due to the restricted air flow. This overheating can lead to shortening the life of the unit, and even to damaging the compressor.

For all products it is important to rinse and wipe off the unit regularly to prevent dirt build-up that could potentially hinder the effectiveness of the unit.

Fraud Labs Pro Fraud Detection and Fraud Detection Solutions: How is the sequence of execution of fraud validation rules?

FraudLabs Pro allows user to configure multiple fraud validation rules with multiple actions, such as Approve, Manual Review, and Reject. But, how is the sequence of execution if I had configured multiple validation rules with different actions? Below are the explanations of the execution logic.

FraudLabs Pro adopts an easy-to-understand sequential checking for the validation rules. It basically checks the validation rules starting from the 1st rule to the last one in the sequence. If the system found the match during the sequential check, it will stop the checking process and flag the transaction based on the action defined. However, if the system completed the sequential check with no match found, it will flag the transaction as Approve. It’s as simple as explained. Below is the summary of the validation logic:

  • If match found during the sequential check, stop the checking process and flag the transaction based on the action defined, such as Approve, Manual Reviewor Reject.
  • If sequential check completed with no match found, flag the transaction as Approve.

Example of validation scenarios.

Example of the fraud validation rules

Assuming you created 3 validation rules for Free Email, Email in Blacklist and Anonymous Proxy as above. (Note: to ease the explanation, this tutorial will not display the exact rule name but a short representation)

Scenario 1: User’s email address is a yahoo email.

The validation process will be stopped at Rule #1 and the transaction will be flagged as Manual Review.

Scenario 2: User’s email address is a company email but had been previously blacklisted by FraudLabs Pro.

Rule #1 pass the validation. However, the validation process will be stopped at Rule #2 and the transaction will be flagged as Reject.

Scenario 3: User’s email address is a company email with clean record, and not using Anonymous Proxy.

The validation process completed successfully and the transaction will be flagged as Approve.

Avon Wildlife Trust: All the latest news for Get Bristol Buzzing

  1. Green Treasure Hunt highlights pollinating insects

On 1st August a ‘Green Treasure Hunt’ around Bishopston, Cotham and Redland was launched as part of the Bristol Green Capital Neighbourhood Arts Programme. The trail takes you on a journey of discovery through treasured green spaces and independent shopping delights, woven through the quiet backstreets of the neighbourhoods. It is linked together via five ‘street pockets’ designed to inspire participants on green issues and 10 hidden art works en-route. The Nature-themed street pocket is a Mazda X5 sports car adorned with pollinator-friendly flowers to highlight the importance of pollinating insects for everyday life.

Do visit the Nature street pocket on the corner of Cotham Hill and Hampton Park and go to http://www.greentreasure.net to find a map of the whole route. A huge thank you to Cleeve Nursery for the beautiful pollinator-friendly flowers and planting assistance.

  1. Mini-meadows brighten up Bristol streets

Bristol City Council have been growing up mini-meadows in planters and have recently distributed these around the city to brighten up the city streets including Queens Road and the Bear Pit – keep an eye out and let us know if you find any!

  1. Getting St George Buzzing

Residents in Kensington Road, St George, Bristol have been busy enhancing the street and have planted pollinator friendly plants. These have been located around the 14 street trees, and all the residents have also set up colourful window boxes, hanging baskets and containers in their small front gardens. Kathryn Lwin, Founder and Director of River of Flowers, visited the street earlier this year to give advice, and she also produced a street planting plan. The residents were given a generous sponsorship donation from Natracare Ltd, and this enabled them to purchase the plants and complete the project. Grenville Johnson Chair of the residents group and Chair of St. George in Bloom commented ‘There has been a significant increase in the numbers of pollinating insects that are visiting the street. The street is really buzzing! ’St George in Bloom have been the first community group to take up the Get Bristol Buzzing challenge. For more information visit their website at: http://www.stgeorgeinbloom.org.uk

  1. Bristol selected for Defra research on pollinators

On 4th August Bristol residents gathered at Bristol East Allotments Association headquarters in St George for a pollinator-themed creativity workshop. This was held as part of a Defra research project that is exploring the social and cultural values of pollinators. The process used meditative walks through the allotments, discussion, visual art and the creation of short movement texts to help explore in depth the many ways that we can value and appreciate pollinators. The stunning setting at this allotment site together with spectacular views over the city of Bristol proved to be a stimulating and inspiring venue for all the attendees, and this was a successful and enjoyable day.

West of England B-Lines in Bristol

Buglife and Avon Wildlife Trust are working with project partner Bristol City Council to restore wildflower-rich habitats on two of their sites within the West of England B-Lines network in the Hengrove area of the Bristol – Hawkfield Meadow and Hengrove Mounds. Earlier this year contractors installed a gate and cleared an existing pathway to allow machinery access to Hawkfield Meadow. This grassland will now be cut on an annual basis which will help to improve the diversity of the sword.

Later this month AWTs Grassland Restoration Team and My Wild City volunteers will be meeting at nearby Hengrove Mounds to cut areas of the grassland which have become quite rank, with a dense thatch of vegetation forming underneath. Using traditional management methods such as scything we will cut the grassland and remove the cut material to a compost area. Again this is intended to improve the floral diversity of the grassland for the benefit of pollinating insects, other wildlife and those who visit the site.
