New Yorkers Advised to Stay Clear of Insurance Scams

We generally have an idea about how we are affected when someone else cheats a system we are all a part of but sometimes it doesn't seem too closely connected to us.

Frank is the Senior Vice President of Investigative Services at Delta Group and chair of the public outreach committee for the New York Alliance Against Insurance Fraud.

Sztuk says the scams are something we all ultimately wind up paying for.
