Insurance fraud investigations

INSURANCE fraud is growing in frequency, global scope and sophistication as insurance companies expand their coverage to include more remote regions.

Case samples

Colombia: Following their alleged double murder, GlobalSource conducted an investigation in Colombia on a couple who were found to have 24 joint life insurance policies. Dozens of “red flags” were uncovered during our investigations and the insurance company ultimately denied what proved to be a thoroughly fraudulent claim.

Afghanistan: GlobalSource successfully conducted an investigation that spanned Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the war-torn Ghazni province of Afghanistan after a suspicious claim was received relating to a subject’s alleged death in a car accident.

Yemen: In Yemen, GlobalSource investigated a claim involving an alleged death in a car accident. Every document presented by the beneficiary to support his claim proved to have been forged, including the police report, the hospital records and even a phony criminal complaint alleged to have been filed against the driver of another vehicle involved in the non-existent accident.
