Report insurance fraud

Information for public


If you know anyone involved in committing insurance fraud, you are paying for this with increased insurance premiums. This money can then be used to fund other criminal activity. Please help the IFB in their fight to protect honest customers.

You can report insurance fraud to the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) in two free and confidential ways.

All information provided, by telephone or on-line, will be treated in the strictest confidence by the IFB Cheatline staff who will identify the affected insurer and work with them to ensure that the reported fraud is detected, investigated and prevented.

​Action Fraud

Action Fraud is the UK's national fraud and internet crime reporting centre.

They provide a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime. If you've been scammed, ripped-off or conned, there is something you can do about it. Report fraud to Action Fraud and receive a police crime reference number.

Remember: Action Fraud is not an emergency service - dial 999 if you are in immediate danger.​
