The most commonly used technology is databases. The most popular databases
used were the National Insurance Crime Bureau, which offers insurance claim
information and the American Insurance Services Group, which allows searches
regarding bodily injury claims and property loss claims.
There has also been a new wave of software introduced that offers help
to investigators. Investigative linking software establishes connection
between organizations, events, activities, and locations. They are extremely
helpful when there are a large number of claims in one area. The software
can help identify patterns of fraud. Accident reconstruction software can
recreate the accident and determine if the physical evidence coincides with
the reported facts of the accident. This article provides the names of
