"Insurance fraud is a serious crime that drives up the cost of insurance for all Ohioans and in order to bring offenders to justice we continue to work with our law enforcement partners at the local, state and federal level."

Consumers are also encouraged to call 1-800-686-1527 if they feel they have been deceived or suspect someone has committed insurance fraud.
