SUSPECT INSURANCE FRAUD? REPORT IT.

Montana law requires agents, brokers, or anyone with reason to believe fraud has occurred to report the suspected fraud to our office.

COMMON TYPES OF INSURANCE FRAUD
Fake insurance companies defraud consumers by selling bogus policies with no intention of paying claims. Often, fake insurance companies draw in consumers with products that cost significantly less than those offered by competitors.
Agents and brokers who aren’t properly licensed with the state may deceive customers for personal gain. If you do not receive an insurance ID card or a copy of your policy in a timely manner, this could be a sign your agent or broker is scamming you.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau estimates that ten percent of all insurance claims filed are fraudulent, adding $200 to $300 a year in higher insurance premiums for the average household. Reporting suspected insurance fraud can help keep everyone’s premiums from rising.
