Deterrents Provided by Photo Inspection

Vehicle Inspection programs that include photographic and/or digital image evidence provide the strongest deterrents to a spectrum of costly frauds.

Typical Schemes:

Non-existent or “phantom” vehicles using phoney VINs.

Claims for damage that existed when vehicle was purchased.

"Paper Car" and counterfeit title frauds using falsified documents.

Salvage schemes involving titles and VIN plates from salvaged vehicles.

Duplicate car frauds using same VIN plate and documentation.

Duplicate title frauds (or clones): to collect claims from sale of vehicle; theft claims.

Increasing claim value by adding items not in vehicle.

Import/Export frauds using authentic documentation for vehicles residing in another country.

Staging accidents or claiming accidents that never occurred.

Multiple policy frauds to collect on multiple claims.
