Welcome to the Anti-Fraud Alliance Website

The Anti-Fraud Alliance (AFA) is dedicated to increasing the effectiveness of fraud investigation and prosecution by presenting the very best in continuing education and networking opportunities for fraud professionals in private industry and law enforcement. Comprised of peace officers; state and federal investigators; insurance company officers, directors, managers and employees, including dedicated SIU personnel; private investigators; experts; state and federal prosecutors; and civil attorneys engaged in the fight against fraud, the AFA is unquestionably a national leader in focusing on the ever-present and growing problem of fraud in the making of claims in a variety of contexts, including workers’ compensation, automobile liability, health care, disability and property.

The AFA is very pleased to present the 29th Annual Anti-Fraud Conference, which is slated to take place on April 11-13, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey in beautiful Monterey, California. Working in collaboration with the California Department of Insurance (CDI), the California District Attorneys Association (CDAA) and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), the annual Conference is generally regarded as one of the premier industry events in the nation. With attendees from throughout the United States, the Conference offers numerous classes ranging from the basics to cutting-edge issues taught by well-established leaders in the anti-fraud community along with a chance to network with others engaged in the fight against fraud. For most of us, it is essential that we attend – it is unquestionably the best anti-fraud conference anywhere.

In addition to presenting the Annual Anti-Fraud Conference, the AFA holds four quarterly meetings with each providing continuing education on fraud-related subjects, commentary on current legislation and case law and, as always, an opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues in the anti-fraud industry.
