A claims register must be established as a matter of urgency to out ‘trip and trick’ claimants, Insuremyshop.ie insurance brokers has urged.
CFM Group says it will campaign for a register to curb the activities of “professional insurance claimants”.
It believes some people are making a substantial living from falsifying multiple insurance claims.
“There is a relatively small, but very active and dangerous cohort of people out there who engage in the practice of falsifying insurance claims,” said CFM Group managing director Jonathan Hehir.
Mr Hehir is concerned that shop owners are increasingly becoming the target of insurance fraudsters.
