What Is Insurance Fraud?

White Collar Crime

Insurance fraud most often occurs when someone makes a false or exaggerated insurance claim, seeking compensation for an injury that wasn’t sustained, or a loss that wasn’t suffered. This crime can also be committed against customers through the sale of fake coverage, or theft of a customer’s premium by a broker.
