For many years, the public in general did not regard insurance fraud as a serious crime. Public opinion polls revealed that many believed insurers were only slightly harmed financially and often saw it as a way of recouping the many dollars in premiums they had paid. In a word, insurance fraud was considered a victimless crime.

However, during the late 1980s and early 1990s, insurers began to stress that insurance fraud was a real problem and, more importantly, that it was growing at an alarming rate. With help from the industry and government agencies, insurance companies created specialized units devoted to the detection and prevention of insurance fraud.
