IMA Webinar: FBI Quarterly: Exposed – FBI Case Studies of COVID-19 Fraud

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

The unique circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic provided fraudsters with ample opportunities to exploit people’s vulnerabilities and led to an increase in fraud schemes. Fraudsters capitalized on people’s fear by offering fake remedies, exploiting people’s desire for security and protection, and exploited Government Assistance Programs by submitting fraudulent claims for benefits, diverting funds intended for those in genuine need.

To combat the rise in fraud during the COVID-19 pandemic, various measures were undertaken including enhanced law enforcement efforts. Law enforcement agencies increased their focus on identifying and prosecuting individuals and groups engaged in COVID-19-related fraud schemes.

For this webinar, two FBI Special Agents will delve into the intricate details of two compelling case studies highlighting instances of COVID-19 fraud. These real-life scenarios will illustrate various forms of fraud that emerged during the pandemic, the depth of deception, and the profound impact such schemes have on individuals, businesses, and society. As we navigate the deceptions that occurred from COVID-19 fraud, each case study serves as a poignant reminder to bolster resilience and fortify defenses against those who seek to exploit vulnerabilities for personal gain.
