What Counts as Fraud?
Many people don’t even realize that they are participating in insurance fraud. It’s important to understand that any false claim on your insurance, is fraud.
Insurance fraud is more than just false claims of injury or accident. Damaging insurance fraud can be as simple as lying about the mileage you drive each year on your vehicle, or including existing damage when reporting a claim. All of these small lies add up creating higher premiums for you and other consumers.
