Welcome to the Anti-Fraud Alliance® Website


A Message From The President

The Anti-Fraud Alliance® (AFA) has a long and distinguished history and tradition as a premier association in noble cause of fraud investigations and prosecutions. We represent fraud professionals in the private industry and law enforcement throughout the country – from coast to coast. Our members’ mission includes tackling the expansive problem and challenges of fraud in both underwriting and submitting claims including workers’ compensation, automobile liability, health care, disability and property.

Our “value add” is comprehensive and relevant education and training, networking, and collaboration opportunities among various dedicated individuals and entities. Our membership includes peace officers; state and federal investigators; insurance company officers, directors, managers and employees, including dedicated SIU personnel; private investigators; experts; state and federal prosecutors; and civil attorneys engaged in the fight against fraud.

Please join us for the 35th Annual Anti-Fraud Conference in Monterey, CA , April 30 – May 2, 2025.

Additionally, we host quarterly training meetings on various continuing education fraud-related topics held online. Please check the events page for information on the next quarterly training meeting.

As a stakeholder in the anti-fraud community, please consider applying for AFA membership and becoming further involved in the association as board member, volunteer, or speaker. We welcome your active participation, involvement, and partnership.  Feel free to contact me or any board member for further information on the AFA and how you can participate.
