Inducting the year’s
old your noses; bolt your front doors; and hide your children. America’s most-brazen, cunning, or just plain dumb insurance criminals have earned election to America’s most notorious thiefdom, the 2011 Insurance Fraud Hall of Shame.

were either convicted or experienced other legal closure this year.
Showcasing these insurance mea-culprits serves a very serious and
valuable purpose. The Hall of Shame provides an up-close and personal
look at real-life crime dramas that illustrate how fraud damages innocent
people and insurers.
Publicly blaming and shaming these crooks helps stoke consumer
outrage, ultimately waking up more Americans to the realities of
insurance fraud’s destructive impact and underscoring the necessity of
adequate fraud detection and mitigation strategies. To fight this epidemic,
insurers, organizations, and the public must present a unified front. Let’s
begin the harrowing journey with America’s latest rank and vile.
