Homeowners insurance fraud happens when a false, inflated or misrepresented claim is submitted on a homeowners or renters policy for financial gain. Just like auto insurance fraud, it can drive up the cost of insurance and repairs. It’s illegal and everyone can help fight it.
Home insurance fraud can take many forms, whether it’s a dishonest homeowner intentionally damaging their own house, contractors who inflate the cost of repairs or a homeowner reporting stolen items that didn’t exist in the first place. Plymouth Rock Assurance wants everyone to help recognize and report home insurance fraud.
