Insurance Fraud Bureau

The Cheatline

The IFB's Cheatline is a free and confidential way for anyone to report insurance fraud.

Each month, around 500 reports are received by the IFB, via either the free-phone number, which is powered by Crimestoppers, or through the online form.

Information submitted to the Cheatline complements the wide array of data from the insurance industry and other agencies, giving us a unique insight into organised insurance fraud in the UK. Together, this information helps us identify fraudsters and work with others to bring them to justice, as well as help insurers avoid having to pay out fraudulent claims.
