PIP Fraud Featured on A&E American Takedown
The newest series on A&E, American Takedown, goes behind-the-scenes of a year-long undercover investigation into an accused insurance fraud ring in Palm Beach, Martin, and Miami-Dade counties. The show aired on A&E on Thursday, July 9, 2015, at 10 pm EST.
The episode followed the breakdown of the investigation of attorneys, chiropractors and clinic employees involved in recruiting, paying, and treating “patients” for injuries that did not exist following staged car accidents. The investigation was known as “Operation Cold Call” which targeted a network of attorneys, doctors, and clinic employees in Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, Hobe Sound, Stuart, and Homestead. Investigators from the state’s Department of Financial Services worked undercover and were embedded into the clinics that were accepting patients who were illegally solicited.
