“The SID staff really gets into this event every year and it keeps growing as other special investigations units around the state do their own collection” says Director of Special Investigations Tom Wersell.

For those in the Columbus area, you still have an opportunity to contribute. Join Director Wersell at the NBC4 Firefighters 4 Kids Toy Drive on Saturday, December 10th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. All Columbus fire stations also accept toy donations until December 24th. Visit https://www.firefighters4kids.com/donations.html more details.

Intro to Our New Fraud Awareness Series

SID Badge and SealBy Tom Wersell, Director of Investigations

We are starting a series of articles to highlight our team’s activities. These articles will contain common fraud schemes, red flags, examples of cases we’ve investigated and special projects. For the month of August, we will focus on employer fraud, followed by claimant fraud in September and health care fraud in October.

Our department is comprised of several types of teams:

  • Three regional claimant fraud special investigation teams operate in most customer service offices;
  • The health care provider team (HCPT), employer team and safety violations investigation unit (SVIU) are each comprised of team members located throughout the state;
  • The intelligence unit; digital forensics unit (DFU); and BWC security services operate through BWC’s central office.

We intend for these articles to be educational and interactive, so we welcome your comments and feedback. We hope others will share their knowledge and experience, as well as, report fraud if they know a person or business is doing something similar.
