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. With the enormous liability presented by insurance fraud, every organisation should address the risk in their due diligence and fraud prevention programs. The experts at CRI® Group are positioned to help any organisation, including captive insurance companies, domestic, alien, Lloyds of London, mutual and stock companies implement this as part of a risk management plan.
