A Brief History of The ANTI-FRAUD Unit:

The Anti-Fraud Unit is the law enforcement arm of the Oklahoma Insurance Department.

The Unit is responsible for the investigation of white-collar financial crimes related to the insurance industry. The Unit is also responsible for the investigation of administrative rule violations committed by licensed providers that fall under the authority of the Oklahoma Insurance Department. The Anti-Fraud Unit was first established in 1999 as a civilian component of the Oklahoma Insurance Department. In 2005, the Oklahoma legislature invested the Anti-Fraud Unit with full law enforcement powers, as per Title 36, Section 361(C) of the Oklahoma Statutes.

Operating under the authority of the state Insurance Commissioner, the Anti-Fraud Unit is made up of both CLEET certified peace officers and civilian support staff. Anti-Fraud Unit investigators possess specialized investigative expertise and, typically, numerous years of law enforcement experience obtained from previous careers with other state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies. Civilian support staff also have numerous years of experience with the State of Oklahoma and provide valuable administrative and technical assistance to Unit investigators and leadership.

The Anti-Fraud Unit maintains offices in OKC and Tulsa, but serves all 77 counties of Oklahoma. To report fraud, click the red button below or contact us in person, by mail, phone, or email at fraudstoppers@oid.ok.gov.
