IFB Welcomes Further Jail Time for Convicted Fraudsters
25 March 2014
The IFB has welcomed the further sentencing of three convicted insurance fraudsters, for failing to repay their ill-gotten gains. Originally sentenced to jail in 2010 for submitting over 100 fraudulent insurance claims, brothers Nadeem and Amer Dad and their father, Munsif Dad, were also required to repay almost £280,000. As Nadeem and Amer haven't repaid a penny, and Munsif has only funded a third of what was expected of him, all three have been sentenced to a total of almost four and a half more years in prison.
Ben Fletcher, Director of the Insurance Fraud Bureau, said: "This decision sends an important message to insurance fraudsters everywhere: if you expect your illegal profits to be waiting for you when you get out of jail you'll be back there quicker than you expect. We wholeheartedly support the actions of the Crown Prosecution Service and their pursuit of fraudsters who somehow think that they are entitled to keep their illegal nest-egg."
The IFB was formed in 2006 to spearhead the collective fight against organised insurance fraud. Since its inception, the IFB has assisted police with over 915 arrests and helped secure total jail terms of more than 235 years for organised fraudsters.
