Fraud Aware 5

AWARE||27/10/2016

We kick off our latest edition with some interesting statistics thrown up by this year’s Keoghs Fraud Index, which suggest, amongst other trends, that opportunistic fraud is on the rise.

Elsewhere we take a look at the ongoing issues surrounding Late Notified Claims and the award winning strategy we are employing to combat this prevalent type of fraud. There is also a follow up to last year’s LSI article, which hints at Nostradamus-like levels of foresight from Damian Ward...

Speaking of Damian, he examines the implications of the Supreme Court’s decision in the recent Hayward case while also taking time out to look back at our prosecution of 21 fraudsters, a trial which made the national press and has just been nominated for an award.

With important cases in mind, Nina Dayal gives us the latest take on the casualty fraud arena, analysing three ground-breaking Keoghs cases which resulted in findings of S57 Fundamental Dishonesty.

With our Credit Hire Fraud team evaluating storage and recovery heads of loss plus Louise Cruise embellishing on her recent ‘Collateral Lies’ blog post, this fifth edition of Fraud AWARE is packed full of content which we hope you’ll find useful. Don't forget to download a copy below!
