Editorial Reviews


"This book can be called the Encyclopedia of Insurance Fraud: so full and complete is its content. It is also very useful for universities which provide risk management and insurance courses." – Professor Igor Kotlobovsky, Chairman, Risk Management and Insurance Department, Moscow State University, Russia


"The authors provide all the information required to combat insurance fraud. It is examined in a number of different countries and lessons learned are clearly identified. The outstanding academic and practical experience and insights of the authors has enabled them to produce a, hands-on, forward thinking readable book on this highly complex topic." - Adrian Ladbury, Editor, Insurance Day, UK

"This book helps fill a gap in the literature by pulling together and distilling into one easily read volume a wide range of relevant and up to date information. I welcome this addition to our fraud-fighting tools." – Stefan Gussmann, Group Chief Security Officer, Zurich Financial Services, Switzerland


"This book provides clear guidance on how to better detect, defeat and deter fraudulent claims. Practitioners will find the indicators for identifying fraudulent behaviour especially helpful. The comparative approach makes it a must for organisations conducting business in international markets." - Terry G. Clarke, former CEO, Converium Ltd, Zurich, Switzerland

"This book presents a clear and comprehensive view of the problem of Insurance Fraud and how to deal with it. Of particular interest to companies and organisations expanding their markets is the analysis of the situations in other countries where the lessons to be learned are clearly identified. This will make the task of combating fraud in new markets much simpler" – Karl Wrumen, Editor, risControl, Austria

"This is a very well written book which will be extremely useful to insurers, reinsurers, regulators and investigators." – K. K. Srinivasan, Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA), India

"… the authors have provided an excellent reference guide which should be essential reading for anyone involved with claims settlements, assessment and loss adjusting." - Paul Ray, Managing Director, Africa Re, South Africa

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fundamental book for anyone interested in the topic of Insurance Fraud. It covers basic definitions, various areas of potential insurance fraud and presents an excellent review of how different countries deal with these issues. Most interestingly to me and my work, Dexter Morse tackles the issue of whether there is a 'typical' profile for such fraudsters - it is very useful to be reminded that fraud is committed by real people and is not limited to a questions of legal definition. The book is very well-written and easy to read - that's not always the case with books dealing with the law - and the format is pleasing and easy on the eye.
