The APA uses donations to lobby and establish lines of communication with elected officials and Licensing Boards
In the aftermath of major storm events elected officials have the recovery of their constituents as their first priority.
APA Members are encouraged to report and provide evidence of fraud.
The APA complies evidence of specific cases of fraud committed by engineers, adjusters and insurers, makes formal fraud complaints directly to AG offices and state fraud units.
The APA also provides evidence of criminal and ethical violations to licensing boards of the engineer, adjuster or insurance company offender. The APA also arranges personal meetings with previously contacted State Senators, local Congressman and the Insurance Commissioner to advise them of the specific criminal acts against their constituent.
While the APA’s ultimate goal is to discourage all methods of lowballing in the claim process, the APA will choose acts that actually cross over from bad faith to the criminal act of fraud.
By identifying the worst conduct, the APA does not need to wait years for civil litigation, or legislative changes that may take a decade.
After the APA has identified criminal fraud, the APA can go immediately to the executive branch and request elected officials to take immediate action to help a consumer.
Membership affords an APA member the ability to report an act of fraud to the APA and request the deployment of APA’s 4 Part Strategy for fraud occurring in a member’s region or for a specific event. The APA cannot take on every cause reported and must responsibly allocate resources for maximum impact for members as a whole. However, the APA will set set the stage for the reception from complaint departments in each state and provide members with an efficient complaint portal for reporting of all fraud complaints.
