July 6, 2006

Blanca Aparicio, manager of United Automobile Insurance Group’s Special Investigative Unit in North Miami Beach, Fla. was honored with the 2006 “Insurance Investigator of the Year Award” presented by the Florida Insurance Fraud Education Committee. The award is presented based on the candidates’ commitment and dedication to the insurance fraud investigation industry.

“Blanca has done a tremendous job overseeing our SIU department and its heavy caseload,” Sandra Iglesias, UAIG senior vice president of claims said. “She has received much deserved, award-winning news coverage for her investigative prowess and successful apprehension of several people who have committed insurance fraud, resulting in arrests and convictions.”

Aparicio joined UAIG in 1999 as an investigator in the anti-fraud SIU. She later became the manager of the unit where she oversees a staff of 27; including 17 investigators. Aparicio has opened and transferred cases to the Hialeah, Miami Beach, Coral Gables and City of Miami, Fla. police departments that have led to numerous arrests and convictions, not only in the area of insurance fraud, but all forms of crime.

She also holds a Private Investigator license and has invested thousands of dollars in state-of-the-art equipment for her surveillance vans as part of her investigative work.
