Manitobans taking action against Auto Insurance Fraud

Manitoba Public Insurance is committed to reducing auto insurance fraud and earlier this year a public awareness campaign was launched called “Fraud: We All Pay” which focused on how auto insurance fraud in Manitoba affects rate payers, about $50 a year per person. The campaign was successful in creating more awareness about auto insurance fraud.

 

A recent survey reported that more than 50 percent of respondents stated that they are more likely to report a fraud after seeing the Fraud We all pay ad and more than 50 percent of respondents had a heightened awareness about MPI’s TIPS line

 

For the first five months of this year MPI”S TIPS line has received a 63 per cent increase in calls. A total of 290 calls were handled resulting in 52 investigations being opened by MPI’s Special Investigation unit.

 

The Tips line is a resource for unearthing fraud claims and the increase in calls is attributed to a heighted awareness about auto insurance fraud.

 

If you know of someone that has committed auto insurance fraud you are asked to call the tips line at 204-985-8477.
