Yes, insurance fraud exists. In 2011 there were 141 "orders and adjudications" on this issue. More than $900,000.00 in penalties were collected and $3.2 million in restitution recovered. From a review of the following article:

Web: http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/east/2012/02/01/233623.htm

it appears that these numbers are only referring to the people buying insurance or the people selling insurance.

That being said, take a look at the "Prosecution Blotter" in the Winter 2011/2012 News & Notes from the PA Department of Labor & Industry. This article deals specifically with WC fraud:

Web: http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt?open=18&objID=1225230&mode=2

and it documents the most recent fraud prosecutions. If you add up the numbers of employee vs. employer fraud, this is what you will see:

Employee fraud: 0

Employer fraud: 15.

So, the next time that you hear someone complaining about employee fraud in WC, what is it that we can take away from these two articles? That's right, maybe the problem is not with the employee.

If you have an article to indicate otherwise, please feel free to forward a copy to me.
