Insurance claim fraud is on the rise. In aggregate, fraudulent claims cost insurance companies in excess of $40 billion per year according to the FBI; a figure that means higher premiums for everyone.
Applying Digital Forensics to Reveal Fraudulent Claims for Insurance Companies Nationwide
Fortunately, increased use of digital forensics services by insurance companies along with technology advances and greater availability of digital information are contributing to exposing fraud in ever more claims related to fires, burglary, vehicular accidents, on-the-job injuries and wrongful death among others.
The digital forensics experts at Secure Data Recovery Services are well-acquainted with these types of cases. They are fully certified in the necessary computer and mobile device forensic tools and techniques to apply in order to uncover potential insurance fraud. Their skills have been crucial in disproving many of the untrue claims insurance companies deal with every day.
The Expertise and Tools to Uncover Hidden Evidence
In cases of questionable insurance claims, our teams quickly identify potential sources of evidence related to the claim or claimant, such as social media activity, browser history, system log files, DVR footage and any type of electronic equipment with persistent storage such as hard drives, memory cards, flash drives, optical disks, SIM cards, smartphones or computers.
They are experts in finding evidence hidden by insurance fraudsters in unused disk or file spaces or that has been deliberately encrypted, obfuscated or deleted. In many successful cases, those making false insurance claims are tripped up by their own photos or text messages about their own activities, but which our experts can detect and recover.
"Based on recent industry statistics, ten cents of every claims dollar paid goes to a fraudulent claim. Active fraud investigations can uncover proof of inflated damages, overstated injuries, or located property."
Complying to Legal and Ethical Standards
Any evidence gathered by our digital forensics staff is done according to strict protocols that maintain the admissibility of evidence in the eventuality that a court case ensues. Evidence authentication, integrity and chain-of-custody are all performed to current legal standards, which is integral to their advanced training.
Detailed analyses of discovered digital artifacts are matched with timelines of activity to paint a complete picture of a claimant’s behavior. Our experts’ final reports are founded in sound forensic and scientific principles, are thorough, unbiased, well-written and support their expert testimony when called upon to do so.
