White collar crime seems to be on the rise everywhere.  I have seen this in my own practice here in New Jersey and it can be seen by reading just about any news  paper.  The Insurance Fraud Program of the Virginia State Police has released their 2008 Annual Report.  In 2008, state police special agents made 307 arrests for insurance fraud which is a 47 % increase over 2007. Convictions for insurance fraud in 2008 saw increased from 39 to 174, primarily due to two cases that resulted in more than 100 convictions.

The  program was established 10 years ago and it has expanded its marketing and public awareness efforts while arrests and convictions for insurance fraud have increased.  Besides having a website, they have also started a facebook fan page which I personally find fascinating.  They are clearly on the cutting edge as far as their marketing goes.
