Today’s announcement by the Insurance Fraud Bureau that it is to look to extend its remit beyond “cash for crash” motor fraud, will come as little surprise to industry watchers. The good work that the IFB have done in tackling motor fraud has meant that the Bureau can afford to shift its focus away from that problem, to other types of fraud that occur in other categories of risk. Partly as a result of the Bureau’s hard work and also the government’s reforms in the area, organised criminals have started to move away from motor fraud and into other areas of organised liability fraud, including “slip and trip” claims and industrial deafness claims.
