Insurance industry fraud

One of the issues that plagues the insurance industry is fraud.  Nearly one in four U.S. adults say that overstating the value of claims to insurance companies is acceptable, and more than one in 10 say they approve of submitting insurance claims for items that were not lost or damaged or for treatments that were not provided, according to a survey released by Accenture. Two-thirds of respondents (66 percent) said that people are more likely to commit insurance fraud during an economic downturn than when the economy is strong. About half the respondents (49 percent) said that people commit insurance fraud because they can get away with it.
