Two-thirds of suspicious claims dropped once Gardaí get involved

Two-thirds of insurance claims ended up being withdrawn once the claimant discovered that the gardaí were investigating, new figures have revealed.

Insurance Ireland's fraud group alerted gardaí to a number of cases that they believed to be potentially fraudulent and after officers called to the home of each claimant, most of the claims were dropped.

Insurance Minister Michael D'Arcy says this is the correct way to tackle fraud.

"Two-thirds of the claims that they have chased up, that they have followed up, have been withdrawn," said Mr D'Arcy. "So that's something that I think is a very positive development.

"We shouldn't be trying to figure these out in the courts, at the last stage. We should be trying to deal with them earlier."
