CEGA Deters Travel Insurance Fraudsters On BBC TV

CEGA Deters Travel Insurance Fraudsters On BBC TV

Over a million BBC viewers are expected to be glued to their screens this Thursday, to hear about the folly of travel insurance fraud from CEGA Special Investigations - in Series 10 of BBC1's Claimed and Shamed.

CEGA's Head of Technical Claims Simon Cook - a regular contributor to the programme - will educate viewers about the severity of submitting fraudulent travel insurance claims, and talk about the lengths to which insurers will go to detect dishonest claims, even in the most far-flung parts of the world; using real-life cases to make the point.

Just a day before the broadcast, CEGA Special Investigations will also be filming at its Chichester base for the next series of Claimed and Shamed - sharing more case studies of travel insurance fraudsters who have been stopped in their tracks.

Simon Cook comments, "Unearthing dishonest claims on behalf of our insurer clients helps clients remain competitive and ensures that honest claimants are paid as quickly as possible. But reducing travel insurance fraud is as much about deterring fraudsters as detecting fraud itself, and the BBC is a very effective channel through which to do this.

"Our long-running participation in BBC1's Claimed and Shamed series is just one example of our commitment to constantly find innovative new ways to support our insurer clients in the fight against fraud.

"Among other activities, we also identify emerging fraud trends, invest in cutting-edge training for front-end claims teams and work in collaboration with Charles Taylor Adjusting to add our fraud investigation services to Charles Taylor's loss adjusting offering. In addition, we stem insurer losses well beyond the travel insurance market, in the personal accident, household, health and life sectors."

 You can watch CEGA in Claimed and Shamed on Thursday October 18th, 11am on BBC1, or catch up on BBC iPlayer:
