Man jailed for fabricating passenger victims in crash claims
17 September 2021
Martell Randall, 30, of Tangley Grove, Wandsworth, has been sentenced to six months imprisonment at Kingston Crown Court, for conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation. The outcome follows an investigation by City of London Police's Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED) which has been supported by the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB).
Randall had been linked to several false claims involving six collisions which had an estimated combined value of £25,000.
On Randall's phone which was seized during the investigation, personal details of associates who were involved in the fraud were found, which included names, addresses, bank details, telephone numbers and photographic identification - all of which were used to submit bogus car insurance claims.
Several insurers were affected by Randall's scams including LV= General Insurance.
Stephen Dalton, Head of Intelligence and Investigations at the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB), said:
“Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime. It comes at a great financial cost for honest consumers. We're pleased to hear that our work to help identify this fraudulent activity has supported the City of London Police in being able to bring this individual to justice. We hope this serves as a clear warning to anyone thinking of making fraudulent insurance claims that they will get caught.”
