The Virginia State Police Insurance Fraud Program (IFP) was established in 1999. The IFP works to Stamp Out Fraud by providing training to law enforcement and teaching citizens how to identify and report insurance fraud. Insurance fraud is any act committed with the intent to obtain benefits or advantages where they are not entitled, usually through a sum of money. According to statistics, insurance fraud costs American consumers more than $80 billion dollars each year. Three categories of insurance fraud are property fraud, casualty fraud and workers’ compensation fraud. The Stamp Out Fraud program asks citizens who have information regarding acts of insurance fraud to report file a report via our online form. Tips leading to arrests are eligible for rewards of up to $25,000. To view fraud legislation, training presentations or to download educational materials, please visit our resources section.
