Auto Fraud is one of the worst
Each year, insurance fraud costs EVERY New Yorker millions of dollars in higher insurance premiums and higher prices for goods and services.
Auto-related fraud is one of the costliest and most dangerous forms. Dangerous because New Yorkers have been injured and killed by these scams. Staged auto accidents, inflated injury and damage claims, false registration, faulty air-bag or windshield replacement, towing scams and an owner falsely claiming their car was stolen or destroyed are examples of auto insurance fraud.

remember these points!
- If your auto mechanic charges for repairs you never received, or if this person tells you that he will inflate your bill to cover the cost of your deductible, he is involving you in insurance fraud.
- When you have a doctor's appointment, sign only one claim form per visit and make sure to date it. This makes it easier for your insurer to match bills with services.
- When you get a notice of payment from your insurance company, check it closely. If it is for a service you don't remember getting or something you're just not clear about, contact your insurer. It could be a mistake or fraud.
