Contents: The Fraud Defense Network (FDN) has strived to be the leading Internet link for the anti-fraud community. Founded by insurance companies committed to reducing the hundreds of billions of dollars lost each year to insurance fraud, this website is a commercial, subscription-based enterprise. Members have access to a multitude of database systems that assist in the investigation and reduction of fraudulent activities. For legal researchers who care to subscribe, this is a very powerful tool. Members can search the FDNís large database of filed claims, for information on a wide variety of coverage from companies insuring health, life, disability, and property and casualty. Coverage types range from accidents to workerís compensation. The FDN web site also offers information to non-members in the form of useful facts and figures on the cost of fraud to businesses and consumers, links to fraud-related news wire stories, and small articles written by and for fraud investigators. In keeping with its mission, the FDN website also contains a wealth of links to legal sites, public and private data sources, and other vendors of useful tools for the fraud investigator.
