Prison time handed to fraudsters involved in Derbyshire Crash for Cash scam

Following a joint investigation between the IFB, its insurer members and Derbyshire Constabulary, eleven people have been sentenced for their role in a crash for cash scam which saw the gang of fraudsters staging collisions in order to make exaggerated or bogus insurance claims.

Discussing the sentencing, Jason Potter, Head of Investigations at the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB), said: “After a lengthy and thorough investigation between Derbyshire Constabulary, the IFB and our insurer members, we are extremely pleased with today’s result.

“This was a group of calculated individuals who abused the system to fill their own pockets, leaving honest policyholders to foot the £250,000 bill. Fraudsters who operate in this way are a drain on society and we will not tolerate this type of behaviour.

“Today’s sentencing demonstrates that crimes like this will not go unpunished and we are continuously working with police to ensure that justice is served.”
