The Insurance Crime Bureau was officially launched on 31 October 2008 to address organised fraud and crime through insurance fraud detection and prevention strategies in the short term insurance industry. Since then, The Insurance Crime Bureau has established itself not only as a valuable tool in the fight against insurance crime and related fraud, but has also brought the various agencies working in the broader fight against commercial crime closer together for the benefit of all.
While the main focus of The Insurance Crime Bureau is to address organised fraud and crime, The Insurance Crime Bureau also investigates repeat offenders and fraudsters that target multiple insurance companies. Our aim is not to replace the internal fraud investigation units of the insurance companies, but to specifically look at fraud and crime being committed across the industry and affecting multiple companies, i.e. syndicated crime and fraud.
The Insurance Crime Bureau aims to achieve its vision through the consolidation of multiple data sources, the deployment of relevant and specialised skills along with unique technology, all to promote collaboration and provide intelligence to detect and prevent insurance related fraud and crime…with the end goal of obtaining convictions and recoveries.
