Ethos lives on the edge... the cutting edge

Ethos Risk Services has built its reputation on a nose-to-the-grindstone mentality. That doesn't mean we're still using blacksmiths from medieval times, though. 


Far from it.


Recently, Ethos reached into its cutting edge technology cache and withdrew a lightning bolt that 
would've shamed King Arthur's Excalibur.  After searching for a claimant who had disappeared from the grid for over three weeks, Ethos employed its Vehicle Spotter program.

THE ETHOS GUIDE TO FIGHTING FRAUD: From Suspicion to Submission

Greetings. I am Ed Cotilla, President of Ethos Risk Services and author of the publication "The Ethos Guide to Fighting Fraud: From Suspicion to Submission." The following is an excerpt:

 

In order to significantly impact fraud, it is essential to formulate a solid, comprehensive approach. After all, you don't bring a knife to a gun fight. If you're smart, you bring a bigger gun and maybe a hand grenade. When it comes to fighting fraud, we really need all the weapons we can gather.

 

Friends, we in this industry know what a tremendous problem insurance fraud is in our society. For as long as there has been insurance, unscrupulous folks have schemed to obtain financial gain through false claims, staged accidents, intentional damage to insured property, and a host of other illegal methods. Truly, fraudulent activity costs every single one of us through increases to insurance rates and premiums.  

 

Through my decades of experience in this industry, I have compiled numerous strategies that have proven to be successful in helping clients detect fraud and improve their bottom line.  

 

As a service to my fellow risk mitigation professionals, I have assembled "The Ethos Guide to Fighting Fraud: From Suspicion to Submission." to help others navigate these treacherous waters. The guide is free of charge and available in hardcopy or pdf forms. Please click on the following link for the latter, or call 866-783-0525 for your print edition. (electronic version)

I thought that all surveillance companies did social media investigations the same way, but you guys really take it to the next level. Great job! My cases are now coming your way." - Jim,  Risk Manager Read more
