CFO Atwater’s Fraud-Fighting Efforts Successful in First Quarter of 2017

Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater today announced that fraud-fighting efforts led by the Department of Financial Services took 322 law-breaking fraudsters off the streets during the first quarter of 2017. The Department’s anti-fraud efforts focus on the areas of public assistance and insurance fraud, arson, and the theft or abuse of state funds.
“Fraud of any form drives up costs for all Floridians, and I’m proud of the work we’ve done to hold the line on fraud in our state,” said CFO Atwater. “Our efforts are amplified by the partnerships we’ve forged with local law enforcement agencies, and I hope these results send a shockwave to other would-be criminals that they should think twice before committing a crime.”
