Making a Claim

What is a Fraudulent Claim?

A fraudulent claim is when the person making the claim intentionally leaves out, misrepresents, alters or hides vital information relating to the claim. This is with the intention of getting payment under the policy that they would not be otherwise entitled to.

This can be in the form of exaggerating the amount of loss or creating a completely false version of events, to name a few.

If someone suspects an individual is making a fraudulent claim, they can report it by contacting Insurance Confidential by email at or by submitting a report online at their website here.
