Beware of COVID-19 Car Insurance Scams

The Utah Insurance Department’s Fraud Division is cautioning Utah drivers about potential car insurance fraud that may take place during the current health crisis.

Staged Accidents: Scammers set you up for an accident to make an insurance claim. Fewer drivers mean fewer witnesses.

Auto Repair Fraud: Scammers charge excessive fees for disinfecting & cleaning vehicles due to COVID-19. Be suspicious of high fees for cleaning and storage.

Phantom Victims: People not in the car during the accident attempt to file injury claims, hoping for a quick settlement with no investigation. Make sure to exchange ALL relevant information after an accident.

Be vigilant, and contact the Fraud Division if you believe you may have been a victim of insurance fraud.
