Fraud in the News 
In late May, the media in North Carolina began following an ominous story: a 44-year-old woman from a small town outside of Raleigh had disappeared without explanation while on a business trip. Her car was found abandoned in a restaurant parking lot, with no sign of the woman, which furthered the sense of foreboding that friends, families, and investigators must have been feeling as they began to search for her. 

However, for fraud examiners everywhere, there were more disturbing details about the story that would cause them to sit up and take notice. 

The woman, Sallie Rohrbach, was a field examiner for the North Carolina Department of Insurance.
