Enservio to Present "Best Practices for Spotting Counterfeit Items"

Enservio webinar helps insurers identify "fakes" and specific value factors across the most popular counterfeit consumer items

NEEDHAM, Mass. – September 8, 2014Enservio, Inc., the leading provider of software and services across the entire value chain of contents claims processing, today announced a webinar to be held Thursday Sept. 11 on best practices for flagging counterfeit items. The complimentary webinar will be presented by Jay Straughan, Enservio Vice President of Claims, who has 24 years of property claims experience. To register please click here.

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICCWBO.org) reports a minimum of $200 billion in revenue and 750,000 jobs are lost every year from counterfeit sales. What's more, replicas and knock-offs have grown over 10,000% in the past two decades. The increased prevalence in counterfeit items means that adjusters and claims pros will encounter them in the field. Paying top dollar for items that are actually counterfeit can seriously hurt a carrier's bottom line.

The webinar is ideal for claims adjusters, reps and managers as well as others who process homeowner and commercial contents claims. The material presented will help insurance firms address the growing prevalence of counterfeit contents with an eye toward identifying the key value factors across the most commonly counterfeited consumer items such as electronics, watches, jewelry, handbags, footwear, apparel and accessories.

"During the webinar, we will provide attendees with the specific value factors for designer handbags, Rolex watches and consumer electronics such as smart phones, tablet computers and DVD players," says Straughan. "We will also teach attendees how to distinguish the differences among authentic items, and common mistakes that are an indication of replicas, knock-offs, and counterfeit items."
