Reports Suggest Fraudsters Accepting Jobs To Fake Accidents At Work
Recent reports suggest that fraudsters are accepting jobs in order to later stage fake accidents at work in order to make accident claims. It’s thought that the rise in this type of fraud is largely due to the recent clamp down on fraudulent car accident claims as many crash-for-cash rackets have recently been foiled.
Its thought that gangs have now started to take on part-time or short-term contracts in order to make fake accident claims.
HSE Has Not Confirmed
When asked the Health and Safety Executive said that it was not aware of any examples of this type of fraud. However a representative from the Association of British Insurers made it clear that they are constantly watching out for new scams like this one.
