Insurance Claims Fraud

What is Insurance Claims Fraud?

Insurance Claims Fraud is one of several Cifas Fraud Types, where false information and/or false documentation is supplied as part of an insurance claim.

Cifas members record and share information about suspected frauds between themselves to combat crime and to keep the cost of credit down for consumers.


Q: Will it appear on my Credit Report?

A: Insurance Claims Fraud will appear on your Credit File in the form of a Cifas marker, and it may be visible to prospecitve insurance companies. For example when you compare car insurance you will probably see new credit searches appearing on your file- this is exactly the kind of info they’re looking for.
