The blog, called Nailed, contains information on major fraud convictions, surveillance video from investigations, and links to fraud-related news coverage.
"People tend to think fraud only involves workers cheating the workers' comp system, but it's much more than that," said Carl Hammersburg, fraud prevention and compliance program manager for the department and author of the blog. "Millions of dollars are lost when employers, medical providers and contractors commit fraud. The blog will show how my staff is working to fight fraud and also how we bring cheaters into compliance. I also hope Nailed will attract attention to workers' comp fraud and encourage more people to tip us off to fraudulent activities."
