Insurance companies’ bogus claim clampdown

Auto Express has reported that the insurance industry will fund a Police unit and crook’s register to tackle claims fraud.

“Insurance cheats could now find their fraudulent days are numbered, as the industry launches a two-pronged attack to stop them in their tracks.

Fake claims, including imaginary whiplash, are responsible for racking up a whopping £2bn insurance bill every year – adding approximately £40 to every motorist’s premium, according to the Association of British Insurers (ABI). But a new dedicated police force, funded by the insurers themselves, has now been set up to tackle that. The ABI says a 35-strong City of London Police unit will investigate cases across the UK, including organized fraud involving teams of criminals working with doctors and solicitors. Suspected crooks will be brought to trial in a bid to recoup some of its losses.

This isn’t the only trick up the industry’s sleeve either. The ABI has announced it’s launching a national Insurance Fraud Register, too – again funded by members. Unlike existing insurance databases, it will contain details of all known cheats, who can then be easily identified if they fail to reveal their fraudulent past when making fresh claims.

ABI spokesman admitted: “At the moment, insurers rely on people being honest.” But that will all change with the new register, which insurers have agreed to fund for three years.
