When looking to protect your home or personal property from dangers such as theft, fires or floods, homeowners insurance can provide the peace of mind you need. Insurance companies provide these services in good faith to allow their clients financial support when things go awry. However, there are many instances where people will take advantage of this protection for their own reasons.
Homeowners insurance fraud occurs when a policyholder makes a false claim on their insurance policy for an amount that is greater than their alleged loss. The action of submitting a false or questionable claim to acquire unwarranted monetary compensation can also be considered homeowners insurance fraud. Some of the most common instances of this fraudulent action include:
- Increasing the value of a stolen possession after a burglary
- Falsifying the extent, date, cause or location of real damage
- Purposely damaging property to file a claim
- Staging accidents or injuries
- Creating false medical bills and increasing their amounts
- Fabricating any sort of evidence to support a claim
