(PRWEB UK) 11 July 2014
According to the BBC News article, dated 17 June 2014: Warning over increase in 'crash for cash' cases, the number of fraudulent cash for crash claims had gone up significantly, with a 50% increase when compared to last year, according to one of UK’s largest car insurance companies, Aviva. Aviva is demanding more strict sentences, after the company had received over 6,000 motor injury claims, as part of organized fraud activities. The insurance company calculated the value of what they call “induced accidents”. The number added up to a total of 10 million pounds, which is why they are pushing for longer sentences for those who commit cash for crash frauds. As an example, they have released a video of one typical cash for crash video, shot by a dashboard camera, where a completely innocent driver crashed into fraudsters, unable to avoid them. Hopefully, new sentences will reduce the number of these cash for crash scams significantly.
After reading the article published by BBC News, Private Detective Sheffield (http://www.privatedetective-sheffield.com/) took the chance to express their concern about the state of today’s society, where innocent people going about their everyday lives become the victims of fraud. Police and private detective agencies, such as Private Detective Sheffield, are doing everything they can to raise awareness about this subject, as well as educate and help people who have encountered fraud. If fraud is taking place at your workplace, you need to report it immediately, and skilled private detectives at Private Detective Sheffield will do the rest. Also, if you have been a victim of fraud, it is important to react quickly and notify the authorities. Unfortunately, that is often not enough, and one needs to hire private investigators to either expose fraud, or locate the fraudsters, along with the money stolen from people whose trust they have abused. Sharing all the vital information will help private investigators set up an investigation, and proceed with the case immediately. Locating frauds is a time-sensitive affair, and the likelihood of catching fraud is much higher in the early stages of the investigation.
Chief investigator at Private Detective Sheffield, Tony Dixon, expressed outrage at the events portrayed in the articles, as he almost fell victim to one of the scams himself. It was his experience as private investigator that helped him spot the fraud. He also went on to say: “Nobody is safe from this type of fraud, and it can take place any time. People have a relaxed attitude towards fraud, which is something that fraud takes full advantage of. Schedule a meeting with us, and we will teach you how to deal with it.”
