 Coalition Against Insurance Fraud

Nearly every state in the union has made insurance fraud a specific crime. Oregon and Virginia are the only states without a specific insurance fraud law. At least Virginia has a fraud unit, housed within the state police. There are robust investigations, and prosecutors use the state’s false pretense law to convict scammers. Oregon has little anti-fraud infrastructure to call on. The governor vetoed a bill back in 1997 because it wasn’t “good enough.” Efforts to make fraud a specific crime have been garaged ever since.
