Title: Vehicle Finance Fraud

Speaker: Missy Coyne, Regional Learning and Development Facilitator Mid Atlantic for NICB (National Insurance Crime Bureau)

Description: This course will provide the attendee with an overview of the rapidly growing trend of Auto Finance Fraud. We will discuss how Auto finance fraud occurs, what some of the various schemes are, and utilize a case to study to show how these cases might evolve once they are identified. There are some hurdles to overcome with regard to investigating these schemes and participants. We’ll refer to an actual case and discuss the hurdles we experienced and talk about various ways to work together to counter this type of fraud.

Bio:  Missy Coyne has been employed with NICB as a Field Agent since March of 2016 working in the Northern District of WV, Western MD and Northern VA conducting insurance fraud investigations. In 2019, Missy was assigned to the NICB Training Task force to update the existing training programs and as a regional trainer. She was recently promoted to Regional Learning and Development Facilitator for the Mid Atlantic Region.

Missy retired from the Baltimore County Police Department after 27 years of service in December of 2015. She was a Detective in the Financial Crimes Unit for the last 14 years of her career, 10 of which she was assigned to the United States Secret Service Federal Fraud Task Force. As a Detective, her area of expertise involved investigations pertaining to identity theft and credit card fraud.  As a member of that unit, she conducted numerous presentations to area community groups, businesses, and financial institutions concerning the various fraud related crimes and created several programs for the Baltimore County Police Department to teach Officers about how to investigate fraud related crimes as well as teaching Identity Theft and Credit Card basics to the Baltimore County Police Recruits.  In 2008 SA Coyne was the first local Law Enforcement Officer to receive a Certificate of Recognition from the US Attorney’s office in Baltimore for her outstanding service to the investigation and prosecution of financial crimes. 

SA Coyne was the Mid Atlantic Chapter President of IAFCI from 2012 to 2019 where she was committed to building the Chapter membership and providing quality training programs to educate members as well as non-members on topics that they felt were important to them in the fraud arena. Missy was also an instructor teaching law enforcement around the country about Identity Theft and credit card fraud as part of the Lifelock/FBI LEEDA partnership from 2016-2018.
