ICW Group Investigator Speaks at Employer’s Fraud Conference

Prevention through education is a hallmark of ICW Group’s approach to the fight against insurance fraud.   

Teena Barton, a Major Case Investigator with ICW Group’s Special Investigation Unit, spoke to a crowd of over 200 people at the annual Big Fraud Fighting Conference in Cerritos, Calif., hosted by the Employer’s Fraud Task Force. Attendees included business owners, employers, defense attorneys, prosecutors, and local law enforcement officers interested in investigating fraud and mitigating exposure.
