Fraud Prevention

 

How you can help

Fraud Affects Us All

Fraud affects us all by driving up the cost of insurance premiums. California Casualty has an effective anti-fraud program. We work with State Departments of Insurance, state and local law enforcement, as well as organizations such as the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). 

Fraud awareness and prevention is an important part of this effort. The NICB helps California Casualty employees and customers with training on this important topic.

A few examples of insurance fraud to look out for and report are:

  • Faked or inflated auto or home losses
  • Phony injuries or inflated medical bills
  • Faked or inflated repair bills
