March 22, 2016. Lake Mary, Florida – Based upon the reporting data provided by the Florida Department of Financial Services and the Division of Insurance Fraud/Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Fraud 2014-2015 Annual Report, Lion Insurance Company and Packard Claims, in conjunction with their SIU partner, Command Investigations, are credited with the following statistics:
- 7% of all claimant fraud arrests
- 7% of all ID theft arrests
- 5% of all claimant convictions
- 6% of all ID theft convictions
“We are committed to a national SIU program and believe our anti-fraud programming works,” said John Porreca, Chairman of Lion Insurance Company.
“With insurance fraud costing billions, our job is to protect our clients from such matters, and ensure we investigate and report suspect claims. We are equally committed to our other markets, and will be seeing similar SIU results in the future.”
Command Investigations works very closely with the claims staff to identify, investigate and report suspect claim activities. Command provides additional investigative services, including surveillance, CAT response field investigations and a robust restitution management program responsible for more than $32,000 of ordered restitution during this period.
“Our partnership goes back many years with Lion Insurance Company, but remains predicated on consistently delivering the finest SIU & Anti-Fraud investigations available in the market,” said Steve Cassell, President and CEO of Command Investigations.
“These arrest and conviction statistics are incredibly impressive, and we are fortunate to work with the team at Lion and Packard. Everything starts and finishes with them.”
