Insurance Fraud Investigators Group is a Members’ Organization dedicated to the detection and prevention of Insurance Fraud. It is a non-profit making organization created to tackle the growing problem of Insurance Fraud in the UK and disrupt insurance fraudsters.
Members include Insurers, Lawyers, Loss Adjusters, and Investigation Agencies all of whom are committed to preventing Insurance Fraud.
On 1st October 2008 IFIG became one of the first organisations in the UK to be acknowledged by the Government as a 'Specified Anti-Fraud Organisation' under the Serious Crime Act 2007.
Only six anti-fraud organisations have been awarded this status which allows public bodies to share intelligence with IFIG to prevent or detect fraud in general and insurance fraud in particular. IFIG Chairman Rob Smith-Wright states :
"We know fraudsters involve themselves in many aspects of criminality and we are very keen to disrupt them by working closely with organisations across the public and private sectors.
IFIG now has over 320 company members covering the vast majority of the insurance industry and insurance fraud investigators. The SAFO status awarded to IFIG by the Home Office in 2008 has enabled IFIG to build upon our relationships with the public sector and law enforcement agencies, and has supported our key aim of working together to detect, disrupt and prevent insurance fraud."
This website is designed to encourage anyone to report insurance fraud that has occurred or may occur within the UK. You can also find out more information about Insurance Fraud and IFIG as a counter fraud organisation.
