Fraudulent Motor Claims
Insurers have launched a national database to fight motor insurance fraud. It will
hold the details of all vehicle that have been written off or reported stolen, along
with more than six million claims.
The database, which will be run by the vehicle information experts HPI, hopes to
make it easier for insurance companies to expose fraudulent claims. A common problem
that the database will tackle is people taking out the cover with more than one insurance
company and then trying to claim from them all. The system has already proved its
worth by picking out a man who insured his car with 11 different companies and attempted
to claim £34,000 after a crash he engineered himself.
