Case Study: "The House Fire"
CRI Group was contacted to investigate an insurance claim for a house that had reportedly burned to the ground. When our investigator attempted to visit the reported address, he discovered an immediate problem: there was no such house number, and no such house.
With suspicions raised, further investigation led to the "victim" claiming a different location – indeed, a there had been a fire incident at a house in the new location, but there was one problem – the claimant actually lived in the house next door. For final confirmation that the incident was an attempted fraud, our investigators established that no police report supported the claimant's story.
- Claims should be verified with in-person visits and investigations.
- If something seems amiss, it probably is – heed the red flags of fraud.
