A collaborative operation between state and local law enforcement agencies, known as "Operation Flames and Floods" made 30 arrests in their efforts to crack down on insurance fraud. The investigation, led by CFO and State Fire Marshal Jeff Atwater, and Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, uncovered an extensive scheme in which a public adjuster from Miami recruited homeowners to stage water and fire damage in their homes to defraud several insurance companies. Starting in 2012, "Operation Flames and Floods" has uncovered more than $6.7 million in fraudulent claims, paid out by several insurance companies in the state, including Florida Peninsula. 

We applaud the efforts of the operation and encourage anyone with information on those committing insurance fraud to report it. At the end of the day, insurance fraud is not a victimless crime; it affects the innocent and honest policyholders who are left with higher premiums.
