In this edition of NICB News we take a look at some very real car crashes that show claims experts how to spot possible fraudulent claims; we look at a VIN cloning case that caught an innocent buyer off guard; and we’ll hear about the latest efforts to tighten anti-fraud laws in Minnesota.
Earlier this month we reported on an alleged theft ring that exposed over $1.5 million in stolen heavy equipment in Evansville, IN. WEHT-TV in Henderson, KY has an update on this case with an interesting twist. According to reporter, Jordan Vandenberge, the county Fiscal Court ‘unknowingly’ purchased stolen equipment that was allegedly tied to the $1.5 million heavy equipment theft ring.
The video showcases some major warning signs the county missed when purchasing the items. This includes purchasing them from Habermel Equipment which was neither a company or a group.
