Fraud Stories

Real Victims. Real Fraudsters. Real Experts.

Fraud Stories explores real stories of fraud and brings you expert-level guidance on avoiding, mitigating, and recovering from fraud. In Season One, host Mark Lurie talks to both victims and experts involved in disaster fraud, marriage fraud, elder fraud, art fraud and more.

If you have no experience with fraud, these stories will both scare and protect you. If you were a victim of fraud, we hope this series is cathartic and that you’ll know you aren’t alone. If you are a fraud professional, you’ll get a window into how experts deal with fraud across industries.
