Following a joint investigation between the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB), its insurer members and the City of London Police’s Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED), Nigel Fox, 49, of Diadem Grove, Kingston Upon Hull, was sentenced at Hull Crown Court to 12 months in prison.

Jason Potter, IFB’s Head of Investigations, commented:

“Fox was a particularly manipulative individual who was willing to go to great lengths to deceive members of the public in order to line his own pockets. We are pleased that the collaborative work between IFB, IFED and our insurer members has been successful in bringing Fox’s criminal activities to light. 

“We hope that this sentencing sends a clear message to anyone considering carrying out an insurance fraud scam that the industry is committed to tackling this serious issue and we are dedicated to working together in order to ensure these fraudsters get the justice they deserve.”
