ATTENTION - Featured Speaker Change: 
Unfortunately Jack Morgan, who was originally scheduled to be our Featured Speaker Monday morning, has advised he will not be able to attend. Our new Featured Speaker, Larry Lee, CFE, CFI, CFCI, CIFI, CCCI, CCS, CCP, SCLA, will be presenting The Keys to Unlocking the Truth Through Statement Analysis. Thanks to Mr. Lee's background in not only the private, but also the public sector, this presentation will engage all attendees.

Mr. Lee has been conducting interviews and supervising investigations for over 44 years. While serving in law enforcement, his roles included being Officer-In-Charge of Criminal Investigations as well as a part of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Fire Investigation Team.  While working at various property and casualty insurance carriers, Mr. Lee was instrumental in developing and implementing major case teams to investigate potential organized fraud rings. He has presented on such topics as Statement Taking, Statement Analysis and Medical Mill Investigations at several local, state, and national seminars, including IASIU, NSPII, ACFE, FIFEC, CLM, and LexisNexis. In recent years, Mr. Lee has analyzed statements for law enforcement and other professionals. He has also assisted in jury selections as a jury consultant.

His topic will cover the following:  We have all been taught how to look for lies in statements. We are not born liars; we have learned how to lie. However, understanding how to find the truth that people reveal when providing statements is a key element in resolving your investigations timely and accurately. Even when people try to shield the truth from you, they unknowingly provide it by the words they choose. By reviewing real-life insurance statements and statements obtained by law enforcement, this new and expanded course will show you how to identify keys to hidden truths that interviewees hope you never find.

Our Featured Speakers on Tuesday morning will be Zachary McCune and Richard "Shane" Otto, FCLS.  They will be speaking on a Case Study in Framing and Fraud:  How Spoofing and Masking Technologies Were Used to Frame an Innocent Mother and Perpetuate an Arson Fraud.  Case study regarding a unique arson fire where an unprecedented level of spoofing and masking technologies were used by an insured to frame the mother of his child, such that she would be thrown in jail for 20+ years and he would escape town with a $500,000 insurance recovery and custody of a shared child.  The presentation touches upon new technologies available to fraudsters, including custom made wearable masks derived from facial recognition technology, the use of SpoofCard and spoofing-type programs to conceal communications and frame others for communications they never participated in, the use of fake Google and Facebook profiles to commit crimes and communicate undetected with co-conspirators - and how to identify and discover these materials in insurance fraud investigations.  The claim touches on structure, contents, and ALE fraud, and how a team of insurance professionals, attorneys, and experts (origin and cause, forensic accounting, forensic locksmith, cell phone tower data, cell phone and computer forensics) uncovered the fraud and their lessons learned for future investigations.

Zachary McCune is a Partner in Rolfes Henry's Cincinnati office.  His practice primarily involves counseling and representing insurance companies of all sizes in fire science litigation, complex fraud and coverage investigations, and bad faith litigation.  Mr. McCune's fire science experience includes fire and explosion causation investigations, prosecution and defense of Daubert expert witness challenges, catastrophic burn litigation, complex arson investigations, and he has taken hundreds of Examinations Under Oath during first-party fraud investigations.  He is one of a relatively small number of attorneys across the country to receive a Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator designation from the National Association of Fire Investigators.

Richard "Shane" Otto, FCLS obtained his BS in International Business in 2000 and has been in the insurance industry since.  He is a member of numerous anti-fraud organizations including NSPII, IASIU and IAAI and has earned his Fraud Claims Law Specialist designation.  He currently works as an SIU Investigator for Allstate Insurance specializing in the investigation and deterrence of fraud in auto and property claims.
