TORONTO, Feb. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Insurance Bureau of Canada congratulates
Niagara Regional Police, Toronto Police Service, and OPP on news this
week of an auto-fraud bust called "Project Enterprise."
Rick Dubin, IBC's Vice President of Investigative Services says, "The
police continue to do great work to strike down these criminal
networks. Police will be working with IBC to identify insurers that
have policies in place on these cars not knowing that the vehicles may
well be stolen and or unsafe to be on the road. IBC will be working
with law enforcement and insurers to locate and identify these vehicles
to ensure the safety of the public."
IBC's Investigative Services works with insurers and law enforcement to
bring to justice the criminals who defraud the system and threaten the
safety of innocent drivers. Everyone has a responsibility to fight
fraud: insurance companies, the government and individual consumers.
To help catch fraudsters, IBC encourages people with any information
about insurance crime to call our anonymous TIPS line (1-877-IBC TIPS).
