NICB Assist in Questionable Claim

NICB received a request for assistance from the RI State Police Auto Theft/Insurance Fraud Unit (RISP) following notification of a questionable claim concerning alleged application misrepresentation fraud by an insured who allegedly lowered her deductible, then subsequently attempted to gain coverage for a loss at the lower deductible amount that occurred when her deductible was at a higher amount. NICB obtained the claim file for RISP and conducted a file review as well as database checks. As a result of this investigation, RISP arrested and charged the insured with one count of insurance fraud.
