The Cincinnati CPCU Society Chapter invites you to join us for the June Lunch & Learn sponsored by Cincinnati Insurance.
“The Changing Face of Insurance Fraud –Who commits insurance fraud and why?”
We are excited to welcome Matthew J. Smith, Esq. who currently serves as Director of Government Relations & General Counsel for The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. He will help us explore why we should care about insurance fraud. He will share about The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud and we will get to hear about who commits insurance fraud and why? We will also learn about the various ways that insurance claimants leave behind extensive "data trails" and the lawful tracking of this information. This presentation will wrap up by helping us to explore how we can change the culture of fraud and help us understand how we can make a difference as insurance professionals.
