Talk to insurance fraud investigators about their careers. Ask your school counselor to help arrange a few information interviews. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners offers profiles of its members at http://www.acfe.com/member-profiles.aspx. Reading these Q&A features will provide you with a good introduction to the wide array of opportunities that are available to fraud investigators. Visit the Web sites of major insurance companies to learn more about their fraud investigative units. For example, the well-known insurance company Geico offers information on its investigative unit at https://www.geico.com/claims/claimsprocess/special-investigations-unit. The Web sites of state insurance fraud bureaus also feature useful information. Visit https://www.nhcaa.org/resources/health-care-anti-fraud-resources/state-insurance-fraud-bureau.aspx for a list of state organizations. Finally, learn the lingo of the insurance industry by checking out Geico’s glossary of insurance terms and definitions, https://www.geico.com/information/insurance-terms/#InsuranceFraud.
