CBS News reports that insurance investigators are increasingly utilizing online resources, particularly social media, to help find evidence of and expose fraud. The article outlines examples of people whose fraudulent claims have been discovered by investigators’ examinations of their Facebook, Twitter, online dating, and YouTube posts. CBS News notes that the “record number” of social media users is “revolutionizing fraud investigations and helping to solve some of the most difficult cases.”
