Tomblin to Head Texas Mutual Organized Fraud Unit

April 12, 2004

Texas Mutual Insurance Company announced that Terre Tomblin has joined the company as its new supervisor for the Organized Fraud Unit.

Tomblin brings over 20 years experience in fraud investigation supervision for the United States Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI). The OSI is the civilian agency that investigates major fraud against the Air Force.

Elliott Flood, Texas Mutual vice president of special investigations, says that the types of cases Tomblin handled for the Air Force have a lot of similarities to organized workers’ compensation fraud. Unlike an isolated fraud crime committed by an individual, organized fraud cases usually require detailed investigations, intense record reviews, and an in-depth understanding of Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission rules.

“We are very excited about adding Terre to our fraud-fighting team,” Flood said. “We brought in several of our investigators to share their favorite fraud cases with her to help her learn some of the nuances of investigating workers’ compensation insurance fraud, and she has already demonstrated a quick grasp of the key elements.”
