Examples of insurance fraud

Over the past few years, attention has been focused on cases known as ‘cash for crash’. In these situations, people make false claims following road traffic accidents, exaggerating the situation and the damage caused, or may claim in relation to accidents which did not actually happen.

Cases such as these are jointly investigated by the police and the Insurance Fraud Bureau. Figures published in August 2013 show that the bureau is currently investigating 49 rings responsible for fake claims worth a total of around £66 million.
