What is Insurance Fraud?
Insurance fraud artists steal billions of dollars each year from hardworking Americans. According to the Coalition on Insurance Fraud, it is estimated that each household pays approximately $1,000 extra in insurance premiums each year to offset the cost of insurance fraud.
Fraud takes many forms: completing a false document, making a false statement, an agent pockets a premium, selling unauthorized insurance, exaggerating a claim, making a fradulent claim. These actions are illegal and happen every day by organized criminals and everyday people alike.
