Insurance fraud occurs when individuals deceive an insurance company, agent or another person to try to obtain money to which they are not entitled. It happens when someone puts false information on an insurance application and when false or misleading information is given or important information is omitted in an insurance transaction or claim.
Insurance fraud is committed by individuals from all walks of life. Efforts of the Insurance Fraud Unit have resulted in convictions of doctors, lawyers, chiropractors, car salesmen, insurance agents and others who have committed fraud.
Insurance fraud can be “hard” or “soft.”
Hard Fraud: Someone deliberately fakes an accident, injury, theft, arson or other loss to collect money illegally from insurance companies. Crooks often act alone, but increasingly, organized crime rings stage large schemes that steal millions of dollars.
Soft Fraud: Normally honest people often tell so-called “little white lies” to their insurance company. Many people think it’s just harmless fudging. But soft fraud is a crime and raises everyone’s insurance costs.
