Guarding against home insurance fraud

Insurance fraud adds, on average, £50 to the annual insurance bill for every UK policyholder, according to the Association of British Insurers (ABI). In fact, ABI figures show that in 2016, insurers detected 125,000 dishonest insurance claims valued at £1.3 billion. Of these, bogus or exaggerated home insurance claims make up the largest proportion of frauds.
