CANATICS was created to fight organized and premeditated fraud. This is where crime rings involving numerous people (e.g., recruiters, tow truck operators, shady medical facilities etc.) stage collisions and fraudulently bill insurance companies for services that were not performed or not needed. These crime rings are sophisticated and organized, and target multiple insurers over many years.
CANATICS is not involved with opportunistic fraud, in which a person has an actual accident, and then uses it as an opportunity to pad their claim and get more money than they were entitled to. These types of fraudulent claims are identified and investigated by individual insurers.
