Fraud, integrity the focus of recent conference

Two of our investigators at the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Special Investigations Department attended the two-day Targeting Fraud: Safeguarding Integrity conference in Columbus. During the conference, they gleaned ideas from the latest information on specialized investigative topics, such as deception, organizing complex cases into electronic files, examining dangers and repercussions of counterfeit products and the increasing use of virtual currencies in illegal and fraudulent activities.

“My favorite speaker spoke about exploring the scientific truths and lies about telling truths and lies,” one fraud analyst said afterward. “He gave us the opportunity to test our skills at spotting lies, and he also taught us clues to look for that may be related to deception.”

The investigators will share what they’ve learned with their colleagues, and use those strategies while conducting joint investigations with other law enforcement professionals, some of whom also attended last week’s conference.

Ultimately, using what they learned at this and other training seminars, the BWC investigators seek to secure even more results than the $60.1 million in savings they identified last year, as outlined in our FY 2014 annual report.
