Smoke and Ash Fraud – October 15th

Greetings and happy fall!

PSSI is hosting a virtual training on smoke and ash claims.  Below are the details.  We hope you will attend!

Smoke and Ash Fraud

With many states struggling with wildfires, comes the potential for some to attempt to commit insurance fraud. What kind of scams can we expect?  What are the indicators?  How can we investigate fraud when we can’t contact the persons involved?  In this webinar, Smoke and Ash Fraud, we will answer these questions and more.  In the end, the attendees will walk away with the proper information to conduct a thorough and complete investigation into smoke and ash claims. 

Date: Thursday, October 15th  | Time: 11AM – NOON (PST) | Location:  Virtual

Speakers: Melanie Gray (Liberty Mutual) & SA Mike McKee (NICB)
