fraud costs you money
You may believe only insurance companies should be worried about
insurance fraud. But it's a crime that costs you money, too. According
to the Pennsylvania Insurance Fraud Prevention Authority, insurance
fraud costs the nation $160 billion annually � that's $600 per
year for every man, woman, and child in the United States. Fraud
inflates the cost of each consumer's insurance premium by $200
to $300 per year.
Insurance fraud is intentionally lying to or misleading an insurance
company about a claim by providing false estimates for repairs,
submitting "doctored" receipts, intentionally creating damage,
or faking an injury.
