Liverpool Victoria Insurance v Samina Bashir and others: Admn 2012

The claimants, now defendants, had made a wholly fabricated claim for personal injury after a traffic accident. Frauds of that type were identified by the court as notoriously difficult to detect. The defendants were ‘footsoldiers in . . fraud by others on a considerable scale’. 6 weeks immediate custody and suspended terms of imprisonment were imposed to recognise admissions, information of assistance to the insurers and difficult personal circumstances.
