White Collar Crime: Insurance Fraud
The Dangerous Nature of Federal Charges
Are you being investigated for insurance fraud? Like all other white collar crimes, insurance fraud gets zealous investigation and federal law enforcement because these crimes are usually very high profile cases. The media attention that insurance fraud receives puts a lot of pressure on law makers and prosecutors to set an example, and suspected offenders are the ones who take the hit.
Insurance fraud occurs when individuals or non-licensed entities sell bogus or illegal insurance. This crime has been on the rise because more and more consumers are looking for affordable insurance solutions during this time of economic hardship.
Fraud can also occur when an insurance agent deceives the insurance company and the consumer by issuing a false certificate of insurance. This alleged certificate of insurance may be priced at a much lower cost and may appear more affordable. The most common types of this insurance fraud relate to auto and commercial policies, and many consumers are reporting unpaid claims.
