  • The dumbest insurance fraud cases of all time
  • March 19, 2014
  • “These people get caught for various reasons. Maybe they get greedy and then sloppy, or they just didn’t plan very well to begin with,” said Quiggle. “But some schemes are very well-constructed and insurance companies need to do very detailed investigations to uncover a well-concealed crime.”

    how to avoid insurance fraudSo how do you protect yourself from being a victim of an insurance fraudster?

    Quiggle underscores the need for insurance consumers to be on the alert.

    “Is the price too low and the coverage too generous? Did you sign up too easily? Is the seller too pushy and demanding that you buy now without giving you a chance to review or even see the policy? A legitimate insurance provider will give you access to the policy and give you all the time you need to review it. They will also be willing to answer questions,” Quiggle said.

    He added, “But some people are so financially distressed, they’re willing to jump into anything for coverage and they think this is too good to pass up. Maybe they were told it’s a limited-time offer. But one simple call to the insurance department to find out if this is a reputable business is all it really takes.”

    But insurance companies and investigators are not just sitting back and letting people steal money. According to Quiggle and the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, these crimes are becoming harder to get away with because investigators have better tools to catch fraud suspects. Investigators are even going as far as monitoring social networking sites like Facebook to catch crooks in their lies.

    Unfortunately, the courts are not always consistent when it comes to the punishment of insurance swindlers. Sometimes, people are allowed to plead guilty in exchange for no jail time. Other times, when the claimant seems to be an upstanding citizen who did something drastic in a moment of weakness, the punishment will not be as severe.

    “The courts have tried to balance the need for justice against the fact that someone did wrong,” said Quiggle. “The more violent the crime, the more risk to public safety, and the more money stolen, the more likely the person will receive a harsher sentence.”
