Prevent Insurance Fraud

You can reduce the incidence of fraud -- the cost of fraud -- and its impact on the price you pay for car, home and other types of insurance.

  • Report all accidents and losses. If you are involved in an accident or witness one -- report it to authorities.
  • Maintain accurate records of accidents. Keep accurate records of what happened. Write down names, addresses and telephone numbers of those involved and get names of any witnesses.
  • Be alert to possible fraud schemes. If you think someone is trying to entice you into a fraudlent act, contact police.
  • If you suspect someone is committing insurance fraud -- report it. Call the National Insurance Crime Bureau at 1-800-TEL-NICB.
