Car insurer’s fraud effort drives good Mississauga customer away


mississauga-fraud

By

I’ve been driving for a long time, and my insurance company has never asked to visit my house to check that the car I say I own is in the driveway. Nor has it asked to see my hydro bill to prove I live at the address I list on the policy.

But it can. And it did, to Jacinta Kanakaratnam, 31, whose insurance with Allstate Canada was up for renewal. Her story is an interesting look at how insurers try to fight fraud, but sometimes catch a good customer in the net. The consequence in this case is that Allstate may still have the bad ones, but it has also lost a good one.

Kanakaratnam had been an Allstate customer for a year. She received a policy renewal letter in early July, which included the standard questionnaire that updates policy information and is approved by Ontario’s insurance regulator. But she also got a second one, generated internally by the company, asking for more information.

Kanakaratnam was told the supporting documents on the second form had to be delivered in person to the Scarborough East office on Kingston Rd., where she purchased the insurance policy a year ago. This was even though she lives 50 kilometres away in Mississauga, and Allstate has offices that are closer to her home.

Allstate also wanted a report from the Ministry of Transportation outlining the driving history of every licensed household member. She would have to pay for this. The insurer wanted to visit her home and inspect her car. It asked for a copy of the car’s ownership and a utility bill to prove she lived where she said she did.

“When I received the letter, I was shocked and offended,” says Kanakaratnam. “I’ve had no claims in 10 years of driving, no late payments. Why would they ask me for this?”

As it turns out, Kanakaratnam was caught up in a broader initiative, and her upset was made worse by customer service in which common sense did not prevail. She got different answers from different people, including the head office. The personal touch was completely absent and so, confused and angry, she came to The Star for help.

Her case now sits with the company’s ombud, but it’s a moot point. She’s taking her business elsewhere.

“We appreciate the customer’s concerns and confusion around the request and we apologize for that,” said Allstate Canada spokesman Nicole Watts. “The request is to protect our customers and ensure they have proper coverage.”

Kanakaratnam has never made an insurance claim and pays her premiums on time. She has owned the same car for a decade and has lived her entire life with her family in their Mississauga home. Why would she generate red flags on renewal?

Insurance companies are in the business of assessing risk; based on that, they set their prices. In the GTA, Brampton and Scarborough are higher-risk places to insure a car, because insurance companies have a higher claims experience there. So you pay more for car insurance if you live there.

One way people who live in high-risk areas try to beat this system is to claim that they live somewhere else. Another common fraud is to insure a very old car, which then has an accident and is written off.

To an Allstate database, Kanakaratnam’s file could cause concerns. She lives in Mississauga but insures in Scarborough. She drives a 2004 Nissan Altima.

But a little human intervention would have reached a different conclusion. Kanakaratnam bought her insurance in Scarborough because she met an Allstate broker who worked at the Scarborough East office at a social function. (He no longer works for the company, she says.) He convinced her to try Allstate and issued the policy there.

Kanakaratnam has lived at the same Mississauga address for more than 25 years, she said. She bought the Altima in 2007 and while it is getting older, she rarely uses it during the week, preferring public transit. She has been insured for a decade without a claim.

Allstate’s Watts said the company sends out the second request letters “when we have concerns based on trends or suspected instances so we can confirm the accuracy of our policies.”

She indicated the company had concerns about where some customers insuring through the Scarborough East agency actually lived. Many renewal letters sent via registered mail were coming back marked Return to Sender, indicating invalid addresses. So the company initiated a wider request for information. Kanakaratnam’s profile added her to the list.

“When we send these requests to a broad group, there are customers with good history and accurate records who receive them as well,” Watts said. “This may be the case for Jacinta. She was not targeted and was simply part of a broader verification exercise.”

Insurance fraud costs all of us, and is one reason why Ontario has the highest car insurance premiums in the country. Allstate, and other insurers, should rightly go after it.

But Allstate couldn’t seem to distinguish a good customer from a bad one. Nor did it seem to make much effort to find out the difference.

Toronto man arrested on fraud charges after allegedly selling fake Tragically Hip concert tickets

toronto-fraud

A Toronto man has been charged with fraud after allegedly selling fake tickets to the Tragically Hip concert in August.

The tickets are a hot item given that the upcoming tour is expected to be the Tragically Hip’s last after the band’s frontman, Gord Downie, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

A woman purchased tickets to the show from the man in Scarborough earlier this month, contacting the seller through a Kijiji ad. When the ad remained online after she purchased the tickets, she contacted the seller again using a different name and was shown a photo of tickets using the same section, row and set numbers.

The woman arranged another meeting with the seller and brought Durham Regional Police officers with her. When they arrived, the seller attempted to flee the scene and was arrested following a brief struggle.

Coleman Ward, 27, of North York has been charged with fraud under $5,000, escape custody, resisting arrest and possession of proceeds of crime. None of the charges have been proven in court.

Anyone who believes they may have purchased fraudulent tickets is asked to contact their local police department.

Mississauga company fined $266,000 for ‘campaign of abuse’ against deaf worker

mississauga-fraud

By

A Mississauga company found to have mocked, humiliated and launched a “campaign of abuse” designed to force a deaf employee’s resignation has been ordered by Ontario’s top court to pay her $266,000.

The stinging Ontario Court of Appeal decision amplified the original damages awarded to Vicky Strudwick by more than $100,000. The result comes after four years of legal proceedings against her former employer, Applied Consumer and Clinical Evaluations (ACCE), for wrongful dismissal, breach of the human rights code and intentional infliction of mental suffering. Her lawyer called the lawsuit the “worst employment case” he’s seen in 31 years of practising.

Less than a year after she suddenly became deaf, a condition doctors believe may have been caused by a virus, the 56-year-old was fired from the polling and research firm in May 2011. By that time, she had worked there for more than 15 years and was making $12.85 per hour in her latest position.

Leading up to her dismissal, Strudwick “was belittled, isolated, humiliated and made to suffer the effects of her disability to the greatest extent possible,” the three-judge panel wrote. “This conduct was deliberate, malicious and designed to force Ms. Strudwick to quit a job she had held for almost 16 years.”

In an email to the Star, ACCE CEO Raymond Berta said his company “has been part of the Mississauga community for 30 years, with a solid track record of performance coupled with an inspiring corporate culture.

“This case occurred several years ago. As a good corporate citizen we have taken corrective action as reported and we have implemented procedures to prevent any reoccurrences.”

Andrew Hoffman, an ACCE general manager at the time, was named in the decision as “the primary participant” in Strudwick’s workplace harassment. He declined to comment on the case when reached by the Star.

Also named was Strudwick’s immediate supervisor, Liz Camilleri, who “featured prominently in (her) despicable treatment” according to the judgment. Camilleri could not be reached by the Star for comment.

Both bosses“tormented (Strudwick) for the specific purpose of making the work environment intolerable,” the court noted in its sharply worded decision, citing evidence presented in court last summer.

This included advising co-workers not to talk to Strudwick and to telephone her with information she needed. Not hearing the phone — thereby missing the information — provided her superiors with an opportunity to chastise her.

Andrew Hoffman, an ACCE general manager at the time, was named in the decision as “the primary participant” in Strudwick’s workplace harassment.

When Strudwick requested workplace accommodations — including a Canadian Hearing Society assessment, visual fire alarm, a special telephone designed for hearing impaired people, and permission to turn her desk around so she could see people as they approached her — Hoffman denied them, taking the position they were “unnecessary,” the court decision stated.

In an interview, Strudwick told the Star she had mixed emotions about the judgment.

“It doesn’t put this to rest,” she said. “I have to continue to live through this ordeal.

“It was a nightmare, that part of my life, to wake up and dread going to work. But it’s a job, so you put up with it.”

The court noted Strudwick was fired after Hoffman called her a “goddamned fool” over a “stunt” she pulled at a workplace event. The reason for the termination was for “insubordination and wilful misconduct.”

Strudwick’s lawyer, Christopher Du Vernet, told the Star he believes the case puts Ontario employers on notice that disabled workers have to be treated fairly and with respect.

“This is a warning signal for any employer contemplating disregard of employees’ human rights and it will cost them dearly if they do so,” he said. “This is a woman who came in on weekends, came in early, stayed late — her work was her life. And then she’s fired when she became disabled.”

The decision notes the company argued its penalties be deflected onto Hoffman, whose employment was terminated after Berta returned from medical leave. The court rejected this argument, stating the company “cannot escape responsibility” for the actions of its employees.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Hoffman’s employment with ACCE ended in November 2014. A statement of claim obtained by the Star shows he has sued Berta, his former boss, for wrongful dismissal following a “negligent workplace investigation” into allegations that he had harassed someone within his workplace. Hoffman’s lawyer declined to comment but said the case is ongoing.

In response, Berta has counterclaimed for damages. A statement of defence and counterclaim alleges Hoffman stole from the company and mistreated employees. Neither Berta nor his lawyer could be reached by the Star on Wednesday.

For Strudwick, it “took a lot of prayer and support from friends, family, and the Canadian Hearing Society,” but she has since learned how to accept her hearing loss, work with it and move on from her workplace “nightmare.”

Still, she recalled listening to her CD collection as her hearing began to fade so many years ago, hoping in vain it would come back. Earlier this week, she recited a biblical passage from one of her favourite songs, a religious tune titled “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize.”

“At that time the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.”

Mississauga man facing 54 charges for online credit card fraud

Mississauga-Private-investigations

A Mississauga man is facing 54 criminal charges following a four-month investigation into a series of alleged online credit card scams that were carried out across the Greater Toronto Area.

Halton regional police allege that someone placed several online orders at Best Buy using stolen credit card data. The packages were later intercepted by the accused after they were delivered by Canada Post, police say.

Police allege that the accused sometimes posed as a mail courier, trying to pick up the items from people who were understandably confused as to why packages were being delivered to their homes.

York, Durham and Peel regional police helped Halton in the investigation. Together, investigators arrested the accused after two alleged victims took photos and videos of a man who came to their doors to retrieve packages.

The accused is facing charges connected to 14 incidents that are alleged to have happened from Oakville to Minden, Ont. It is alleged that he spent roughly $40,000 using stolen credit card information.

Officers are still investigating to see if there could be others affected by the scam.

Police are asking that anyone with information call them or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Private Investigators and Lawyers – Working Together

lawyer

Many may not be aware of this fact, but private investigators do have specializations just like lawyers do. These days, as a private investigator’s work involve more ways of getting information, some have specialized in digital research while some go for the more ‘traditional’ route of sleuthing involving tracking and surveillance, so how beneficial will working with a private investigator be for an lawyer?

Lawyers and Private Eyes

We’ll just get it out there that there is comparable and compatible PI for each type of lawyer. Whatever a lawyer’s specialty is, whether he or she is a Criminal Defense Lawyer, a Personal Injury Lawyer, or a Mississauga Family Lawyer, there is a PI that can work with the lawyer to catch a cheating spouse, confirm the validity of an insurance claim, or to find someone who’s dodging the arm of the law.

Working Together

It is no secret that facts and evidence play a huge role in background checks, validating a personal injury, or the application of family and criminal law. Uncovering facts and evidence that are not easily attainable are part of a private eye’s job. Below are some examples of how useful a good private investigator is for a lawyer.

  1. Research of Public Records and Depositions

Private Investigators are trained to sniff out the truth, even in the ever-changing world of how our society handles and stores information. Some private investigators specialize in interviewing witnesses and other creative ways of obtaining the information needed for a case, sifting through public records and leaving no stone unturned. In cases like this, PIs work with lawyers to uncover or discover a much-needed evidence.

  1. Surveillance and Digital Research

In instances where someone has been cheating on a spouse, or someone hiding assets, it is important that the person is caught in the act or enough undeniable evidence is gathered to build a case. This can be done either through surveillance or through digital research.

People who are cheating or hiding assets can be found out through digital research and/or surveillance. Of course, a private investigator will not hack someone’s financial records but the same PI can interview witnesses, photograph and/or the subject, or rummage through discarded bank statements to find out the truth.

As for digital research, the PI can go through publicly available data via social media to collect data about a subject. Self-incrimination happens quite frequently, and people oftentimes cannot stop themselves from posting vacation pictures when they claim that they have been at home recovering from an injury.

  1. Locating People, Background Checks, and Insurance Claims

Speaking of fake injuries, let’s also add in the people who do not want to be found and those who have a shady past. PIs have ways to get a comprehensive background information about a person. Information that can pinpoint the truth about someone’s current location, real life, and/or a possible faked injury.

The role that a professional private investigator plays in the judicial process and helping lawyers speed up a case cannot be overlooked, especially in this day and age. If you’re a lawyer who’s interested in the services of a private investigator in Toronto, give the Haywood Hunt team a call today.

Social Media and Private Investigations: Public Data Exploitation?

Social-Media-Investigations

Anyone who’s done something that they are in trouble for has gone to great lengths to hide their whereabouts, activities, accomplices, and other important data such as their assets and properties. It is not a secret that uncovering these bits of information can be a challenge even for the most seasoned private investigators. Aren’t you glad most people in developed countries now have social media?

The Glaring Statistics

In the last 15 years, the use of social media has ushered in the biggest societal change in our recent history. In Facebook, over a billion active users update their profiles each month. The Pew Research says that social media use in the U.S. alone has shot up 356% as compared to 10 years ago. Currently, 90% of individuals aged 18 to 29 use social media and seniors are not to be left behind, with 35% of those who are over 65 years old having at least one social media account, bringing social media use in their demographics up 3x from 2010.

These days, almost every aspect of human interaction has some sort of internet footprint. Things have certainly changed in the way we connect with other people and do business with one another. How has this change affected the field of Private Investigation?

Social Media and Private Investigation

Just a few years ago, data that can be accessed at the click of a button now could have taken a private investigator hours upon hours of detailed investigation. Now, not only are a lot of information easier to access, they’re often time-stamped as well! Some are even sporting the location where a post originated or got posted, thus saving anyone doing some investigative work plenty of time.

The Richmond Journal of Law’s Justin P. Murphy says that social media has a significant effect on government litigation and investigation because it factors into a lot of cases. Let’s not forget that social media can provide evidence through status updates, photos, location, and messages.

Solving Cases, One Social Media Post at A Time

One recent case of private investigators getting help from publicly available information on social media (in the form of a photo) is the case of law-runaway John McAfee (yes, of the McAfee antivirus company) who was hiding from the law following investigation of a neighbour’s murder a few years ago. He’d been hiding from authorities but got discovered through a publicly published photo of him that was embedded with GPS metadata which gave up his exact location in Guatemala.

Sounds amazing? Yes, it is!

Social media has truly changed a huge part of our current society. We can no longer say that a full investigation of a business or an individual has been completed unless the full power of the publicly available information online has been harnessed for it. Individuals and companies can try to evade or hide the truth all they want, be it on paper or in person; however, it is the lure of the social media that almost always catches them bragging or sharing to their family, neighbours, and friends, and thus unwittingly exposing themselves to private investigators.

Workplace Investigation or Workplace Review?

workplace-investigations-toronto

In running a business, there will come a time when you just feel that something isn’t quite right, that some aspects of the organization just don’t make sense, or that an employee is behaving in a suspicious manner. As a business owner or a manager, you might have thought about conducting a workplace review, but then someone suggested that what ought to be done is a workplace investigation. While both aim to get to the root of whatever problem your workplace is experiencing, they are two different things, and we’ll tackle their differences as well as what might be best for your company in this post.

Workplace Review VS Workplace Investigation – The Differences

Generally speaking, workplace reviews are done even without any raised concern or even when you do not suspect that there is a problem. It is usually performed just to ensure that everything is just fine. In contrast to that, workplace investigations are conducted as a response when a concern was brought up by an employee or employees.

Below are some key features of workplace investigations:

  • There is a complaint that warrants a response.
  • The complaint should be specific and filed by a complainant in writing to be investigated upon.
  • The investigator will balance the facts and probabilities based on the complaint and submit a written report to the employer who will then use the report to make a decision.

As for workplace reviews, below are its key features:

  • Reviews are initiated by the employer with or without a complaint being made, because of this, a workplace review has no need for a named complainant or a specific complaint.
  • A consultant will look into the matter and speak to a larger group of employees.
  • Each employee will then have an opportunity to speak to the consultant in private and raise issues that may need to be looked upon if any.
  • Procedural fairness does not apply to workplace reviews because there are no complaints or allegations against particular employees.
  • The consultant simply submits a written report to the employer which summarizes the issues and concerns raised by the employees. This written report will contain notes of the consultant’s discussions with the employees. These notes, along with the consultant’s comments can be used by the employer for decision-making purposes.

Choosing Between a Workplace Review and a Workplace Investigation

Although Haywood Hunt and Associates Inc. undertakes both workplace investigations and workplace reviews, we usually speak first with the business to determine what’s needed.

We suggest a workplace investigation when there is a serious complaint, when a disciplinary action may need to be taken against an accused employee, when the employer senses that something very wrong is going on, when an employer needs a third party point of view to help with decision-making, or when some matters may necessitate legal action.

A workplace review is suggested when the employer simply wants to have an understanding of the workplace’s current state of affairs, any issues and concerns, or just have a feeler or to see if there is a future need for a workplace investigation.

As professional private investigators, we do not recommend that a workplace review and a workplace investigation be carried out at the same time because this can lead to confusion and other issues. If you want to know more or need our help, feel free to contact us at Haywood Hunt for an obligation-free initial consultation.

 

Protecting Your Interests with Corporate Private Investigations

Corporate-Investigations-Toronto

How often have you met someone who might be able to help your business but you were just not sure if doing business with that person would be a smart move? How can you propose to do business with someone who you don’t really know anything about, right?

There are so many ifs and buts in business. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to make decisions knowing that whoever you are dealing with is trustworthy?

Who Needs Corporate Private Investigations?

The best candidates for corporate private investigations are those who have already been taken advantage of. They know what is at stake and how painful it is to be duped, especially after finding out how easy to prevent being taken advantage of is, if only they knew better earlier.

Doing your homework on people is of the utmost importance more so when you’re putting everything on the line just by dealing with them. Remember that in some cases, merely being business partners with unscrupulous individuals or businesses can mean that you or your business can be held responsible from whatever consequence connecting with such persons or companies may bring. One false move can mean losing everything you’ve worked hard for, and yes, even for something that you are not directly involved in.

End point is, whoever you are dealing with, be it just a nanny or a high-stake business deal, you need to know such things as:

  • Any record of bankruptcies
  • Blogs and other written records online
  • Possible criminal history
  • Evictions, if any
  • Foreclosures
  • Finances, especially business related
  • General reputation and/or community standing
  • Judgments
  • Liens
  • Media reports

The Corporate Private Investigation Advantage

The private investigator that you hire should be able to give you a comprehensive spot-on report. He/she should be able to find out if someone is vulnerable and what their vulnerabilities are because human nature dictates that someone will almost always use their vulnerabilities as a motive to do something which they will not normally do or indulge in. For instance, if someone is financially weak, that person may use an opportunity to address that vulnerability even if it means hurting your company or you financially. The person may not be a bad person but due to the perceived needs, was driven to be someone else at that moment.

At Haywood Hunt & Associates Investigation Services, we’ve dealt with small businesses, law firms, real estate firms, and big corporations to help them with their corporate private investigation needs such as doing background checks for new hires, potential business partners, and even possible recurring clients.

Background checks for new hires as well as choosing which employee to promote can help you make better decisions about running your business. As for checking on your possible long-term clients and potential business partners, think of it as an investment or a part of the cost of doing business.

You might be surprised at how much a basic corporate investigation can do for you and your business. Contact us for an obligation-free initial consultation today or whenever you need private investigators in Toronto!

Human Error and the Information Security Breach Link

data-breach

How would you feel if you find out that your most loyal employees could be responsible for information security breaches in your company? What will you think if we tell you that even you could be leaking your business’s secrets without you intending to do so?

Canadian Survey Says Human Error is the Primary Cause of Information Security Breaches

To err is human – you’ve probably heard of this saying so many times, and yet it cannot be truer especially when dealing with information. How many times have you simply dumped out receipts at a regular bin without shredding the receipts first? How many times have someone in your business answered the phone and simply gave away your company’s bank details without verifying if there is indeed a real reason for the caller to know such details?

It is not surprising that Shred-it’s 2016 Security Tracker Survey found out that the number one cause of information security breaches for small businesses is human error. Shred-it is a business specializing in destroying information sources to protect a business’s private information.

Truth be told, establishing protocols and implementing training programs are often far below the list of priorities for many small businesses despite the fact that staff errors and lack of awareness being the biggest threats to any business’s security.

What You Do Matters

The survey actually showed that 41% of Canadian C-suite executives and 47% of small business owners are aware that the biggest threat to their companies’ futures is the lack of employee knowledge regarding protocols and safety measures when it comes to handling information, but not many are doing something about this.

To illustrate the above, 39% of small business owners don’t ever conduct compliance training and only 31% of surveyed C-suite executives admit to facilitating a once-a-year training and mostly just for compliance requirements. More so, 47% of SBOs only audit their policies every few years if they do at all.

To safeguard your information, it is recommended that training should be an ongoing process and protocols should be audited and reviewed often. When employees are not trained properly, they often make crucial decisions as they see fit or whatever is convenient for them – actions that can lead to a serious security breach plus increased risk of fraud.

Failing to audit and revise policies, train employees, and keep abreast with information security trends can cause your business to lose or expose important employee, customer, and business data. This can ruin your business or severely affect your business depending on how critical the information leak is when it happens.

Correcting employee behaviour can take time because you will need to have professional help to train them and devise a sound system for protecting your data. In the meantime, you can start with the following:

  • Start shredding all documents that leave your office for the bin.
  • Have employees clear their desks each time they have to leave their workstation for longer periods.
  • Wipe out hard drives when cleaning data stored electronically. Better yet, destroy wiped-out hard drives before throwing them away if they are no longer needed.

6 Mobile Risk Management Tips

toronto-pi-tips

How much data do you keep on your phone? Do you have your passwords stored in a nifty note app? Do you have your phone’s browser on auto-fill mode to save you time when you’re trying to log-in on websites? Do you often jot down important tasks, personal details, and other information on your phone? Do you have personal photos that are ‘too’ personal?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, then you may also have a dread of losing your phone or have experienced worrying about identity theft and data leak when you thought that you’ve lost it when you’ve simply misplaced it.

Truth is, we all carry sensitive information in our pockets these days. There is no avoiding using your phone because with the convenience offered by smartphones, we use our phones for more than just calling and texting. Most of us use our phones for all manners of communication. Chat, emails, voice messages, photo messages, data storage, calls, you name it. While this makes modern messaging and communication a lot easier, this also presents a huge risk if you lose your phone or if it gets stolen. Below are some fail safes you can implement to reduce your mobile risks.

Do Not Use Auto-Fill in Browsers

If your phone gets compromised or stolen, there is no telling what type of persons will get their hands on your phone. Unauthorized users will have no problem logging-in at your accounts if all they have to do is go to a website and voila! Your phone logs them in! An unscrupulous individual can then access your personal details and even clean out your bank account before you can file a report. Make sure all passwords are not in auto-fill mode and use a secure password manager if you must store them on your phone.

Encrypt Data That You Save

First of all, refrain from saving information that you won’t need in the future, more so if it a sensitive one that can be used against you (such as ‘very’ personal photos). As for data that you want to save, make sure that it is encrypted from downloading, storing, or uploading it.

Refrain from Using Public Wi-fi

Information that you send out and receive via public wi-fi can be accessed by other individuals who are also connected to the network. If you must, such as when you are at an airport, use a VPN (virtual private network) and use https on your browser when browsing websites.

Have a Passcode for Your Device(s)

A unique password or a PIN for your phone is a must. The data you have stored on your phone is far more valuable than what you probably have on your laptop or office computer so be sure to have it safe.  Speaking of passwords, also have one for your computer or tablet to be on the safe side.

Activate Two-Factor Authentication

2FA is one of the best security adaptations developed recently. With this, signing-in on some online accounts would require codes that will be sent to your email and phone (or another device). If you lose your phone, other people won’t be able to access your saved accounts even if they have the password because you have another layer of security on.

Find Out How to Wipe Your Devices Clean Remotely

Both Android and Apple now support a remote wiping feature. This allows you, as the administrator, to send a command from another device that will wipe the data on your stolen phone or lost phone.

Whether you are a business or an individual, safeguarding your data is of utmost importance. If you need more information on mobile safety or would like some help with it, feel free to contact Haywood Hunt. We’re not just the premier private investigators in Toronto, we also help individuals and companies with data security and internet safety.
