Travel insurance fraudster sentenced

Convicted travel insurance fraudster Sam Carr of Bolton has received a suspended sentence for two years, and must also complete 200 hours of unpaid work and a 30-day rehabilitation activity. He had previously plead guilty to 10 counts of fraud by false representation in making bogus travel insurance claims worth an estimated total of £75,000.

The case was referred to the City of London Police’s Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department in February 2020 by LV= General Insurance.

Ben Fletcher, director of financial crime at LV= General Insurance, said: “This is a fantastic result and I’m proud of the investigation led by my team with the police to bring another fraudster to justice.

“Our range of tactics and intel help us find these criminals and ensure they’re stopped, and we continue to fight against all types of insurance fraud such as travel, car and home fake claims.”
