Police investigating alleged insurance scam

Police said on Friday they had received a report on an alleged insurance scam concerning fake claims for cars damaged in road accidents.

The case was reported by a shareholder in a Nicosia-based insurance company who sent a letter on Thursday to police saying he discovered that claims had been filed over the past decade for cars owned by the company that had been allegedly damaged either in road accidents or by malicious acts. The claims concern the company’s own cars in Paphos.

The man told police that after further enquiries, he learned from people using the cars for which claims had been filed and paid out by the company, that they were never involved in any road accidents.

The complainant – who also sent a letter to the Cyprus Stock Exchange – included in his report purported evidence pointing to the scam in which it is alleged company employees were involved.

Police said that the man has been called in to give testimony, so that investigations can begin.
