According to insurance fraud statistics, a large number of people are being scammed by various frauds. A large number of people who applied for policies later found out that they have paid bogus premium amounts. They have become the victim of health insurance frauds and other types of policy frauds.

At NSIU it our responsibility to ensure that our clients stay protected from all types of insurance frauds. As a leading private investigation firm, we are proud to have protected a number of different clients against insurance frauds and helped them secure their rights.

Coming in from our top surveillance experts, here are a few tips you can use to protect yourself against insurance frauds:

Know the insurance carrier

First things first, you need to know the company you are dealing with inside out. Many policy buyers are easily attracted to packages that are not just affordable but seem to offer more benefits. Unfortunately, many of them could be too good to be true.

Before you moving on to signing and making payments, make sure that you are dealing with a licensed service provider. Check whether the company is accredited by the state department of insurance. If it is not registered, you are most likely dealing with scammers.

Avoid paying cash

Always avoid paying in cash or expressing the fact that you can pay in cash. Especially if you have an agent, avoid making any payments in the form of cash. It is always better to pay through check and have the check named to the company you are dealing with. This practice will help you avoid instances where agents are looking to benefit personally from the policy buyer.




Ask for receipts and documents

Insurance documents can tell a lot about the company you are dealing with. Leading surveillance experts advise checking accreditation documents and verifying that they are issued from the state department. In cases where you have to make payments, ask for receipts as fake paperwork is easy to reproduce. You will find it noteworthy to avoid agents who cannot provide you the exact address and contact details of the company.

As a leading private investigation firm, we can ensure that you can stay away from policy fraud by observing quite simple practices. Stay on the lookout and you will thank yourself later.
