Case study: Burned by false claims

CRI Group was contacted to investigate an insurance claim for a house that allegedly burned to the ground. When CRI Group’s investigator attempted to visit the reported address, he discovered an immediate problem: there was no such house number, and no such house.
With suspicions raised, further investigation led to a different location, claimed by the “victim” – indeed, a there had been a fire incident at a house in the “new” location, but there was one problem – the claimant actually lived in the house next door. For final confirmation that the incident was an attempted fraud, our investigators established that no police report supported the claimant’s story.
The client was informed of the results of the investigation, including evidence for possible use in court. In the end, CRI Group’s agents had used a list of resources including police reports, court filings, database records and other means to establish the truth.
