True Crime Stories of Insurance Fraud
Within seven days of the delivery of his policy, a “burglary” was reported. A total of $7,000,000.00 of specifically identified and scheduled personal property was reported stolen. He claimed an additional $2,000,000 in unscheduled diamonds were stolen from their hiding place in one of his 50 suit coats hanging in the closet.
Faced with a $7 million fraudulent claim an insurer conducted a thorough investigation only to fold when sued for bad faith.
Once an insurer gets a reputation for paying for fraudulent claims rather than fighting with all of its assets those who perpetrate fraudulent claims will gather like vultures over a rotting carcass ready to pick the bones clean. The reverse is also true: when an insurer makes it clear it will never pay a fraudulent claim, regardless of cost, those who earn their living by fraud will stay away.
Barry Zalma presents fictionalized True Crime Stories of Insurance Fraud from an Expert who explains why Insurance Fraud is a “Heads I Win, Tails You Lose” situation for Insurers.
The stories help to Understand How Insurance Fraud in America is Costing Everyone who Buys Insurance Thousands of Dollars Every year and Why Insurance Fraud is Safer and More Profitable for the Perpetrators than any Other Crime.
If the fraud succeeds the insurer must charge more premium to cover the expense of defending the fraud and payment of funds to the fraud perpetrator. If the fraud fails the insurer must charge more premium to cover the expense of defending the fraud. Everyone, except the lawyers, lose.
As you watch the videos I hope they help you understand the effect that insurance fraud has on the perpetrators, the insurers, the people who need insurance, the people who buy insurance, and the people who keep the promises made by insurance policies.Over the last 54 years Barry Zalma has dedicated his life to insurance, insurance claims and the need to defeat insurance fraud.
