The fraud bill sets out provisions for general offence of fraud in 3 sections:

  • By false representation
  • By failing to disclose information
  • By abuse of position

Clause 2 makes it an offence to commit fraud by false representation, i.e. the intention of making a gain or causing a loss or risk of a loss to another. The gain or loss does not actually have to take place. Clause 3 makes it an offence to commit fraud by failing to disclose information to insurers in order to gain for him/herself. The bill complements the utmost good faith obligations of the insured/proposer per sections 18(1) and 20(1) of the Marine Insurance Act 1906. Fraud will be prosecuted as well as negating the claim. PLEASE NOTE - Insurers share claim information with each other to prevent fraudulent claims and in the event of a claim may search databases and registers to exchange claim details with participating insurers and services.

I/We declare that the whole of the statements made on this claim form are true in every respect and I/We agree that if any false or untrue statement or any supression or concealment of the material fact has been made, the right to recover under this policy shall be absolutely forfeited.
