These overseas credit card fraud stints have proven to have little penalty for the international credit card thieves because of the US law enforcement that has encountered difficulties with the laws on white-collar crimes in other countries, jurisdictional questions, the indifference of some governments, and the investigations of credit card fraud being a time consuming and expensive process.

Paying For Nonexistent Insurance, June 4, 2002
Considered one of the biggest insurance fraud scams within the last ten years by James Quiggle of the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, more and more Americans are finding they have been sold nonexistent insurance plans. The insurance fraud plans are in operation in every state and leaves the victims with countless medical bills and debt. The insurance fraud is affecting more than individual patients, it also affects doctors and hospitals that are left in financial distress because state and federal authorities often do not discover that they are involved in a scam until it is too late.

Florida has been so badly affected by the insurance fraud the state has launched an ad campaign to warn people to check their insurance companies to make sure they are licensed. The fake insurance plans usually target the self-employed because they have the hardest time finding affordable health insurance, so the unlicensed companies can offer cheaper rates than the larger, well-known insurance companies. The insurance fraud victims do not find out they have been scammed until they need to use the insurance and then it is too late.
