Fraud is the Lie. The Lie is Fraud
Learn More
Mixing lies with the truth, victims of fraud are shaded from the crime’s deliberate deception. This means investigating fraud requires an awareness that goes beyond the reported crime. Very often revealing one deceit will unearth a history of criminal activity. That’s why at Ashbury our skill as fraud investigators arises from the way we anticipate associated criminal activity. We uncover the warning signs, then conduct and prepare each investigation as if it were going to trial.

We commit our talents to three distinct types of fraud:

  • Worker’s Compensation: Initially set up to protect the worker at time of injury and indemnify the employer from civil action. Our mission into worker’s compensation fraud is to restore parity between the premiums paid by lawful business owners and the benefits received by a truly injured person.
  • Premium Fraud: knowingly falsifies an accurate portrayal of a businesses in order to reduce insurance cost. An unfair and illegal business practice premium fraud can persist for years before it is discovered. At Ashbury we gather our information hygienically, building a foundation which both communicates a chronology of “what we know”  and demonstrates “how we know what we know.”
  • Investment Fraud: Victims of investment fraud tend to be shareholders or participants in a transaction where facts were concealed or misrepresented. Coming from diverse backgrounds our team can locate constructive evidence in innovative ways.
