The insurance sector is made up of companies that offer risk management in the form of insurance contracts. As an industry, insurance is regarded as a slow-growing, safe sector for investors. Every type of insurance is vulnerable to insurance fraud. Insurance fraud cases are often committed by opportunists – such as claim fraud, where perpetrators invent or exaggerate a claim; or application fraud, where they deliberately or recklessly provide false information when applying for insurance. There are well-known cases of highly organised criminal gangs with money-making enterprises based on insurance fraud. In UK “Crash for Cash” is a dangerous insurance scam which includes criminals deliberately causing collisions with innocent drivers. It’s a nationwide problem, but check out the worst-affected areas here.
Insurance fraud cases cover a wide range of schemes and crimes, intended to enrich the fraudsters at the expense of insurance providers and other innocent victims.
