Have you ever secretly worried about filing false insurance claims sometime down the road because of whatever financial situation you are in? There are reasons why you should never do something like that, and not just because your pants would burst into flames.
Fraudulent insurance claims are not as rare as you may think. People try to file for crazy things all the time, even faking accidents, just to get more money. For as common as they are however, there are just as many ways to figure out if someone is telling the truth, or if they are just a desperate liar.
A person who files elephant insurance claims brings to mind perhaps a circus trainer or a zookeeper? What about someone who has never even seen an elephant? It has probably happened, and maybe the person has even succeeded. Funny insurance claims usually have at least a small percentage of being valid, but even so, ways to prevent someone who is lying is necessary.
One of these ways is by completing checks on all the claims someone has filed for in their life. If there are multiple claims and none of them are for an elephant, that may be cause for worry. The number of claims filed can help the discover of someone who is telling the truth versus someone who is making up some ridiculous elephant owning story.
Another way to see through false insurance claims is to scrutinize who is filing the claim, and scrutinize until their very soul becomes visible. This is no understatement. Private investigators may be called in, handwriting specialists used, to determine whether or not the person is telling the truth.
Something else to look at are the false insurance claims dealing with personal injuries or even death. Yes, some people fake their own death just to claim insurance. With injuries it has become very easy to tell whether or not they were self inflicted.
Television shows may be a bit exaggerated, but the things they can do with technology will decide if the person was assaulted, or if they broke their own arm. Silly and ridiculous things like this do exist, which is why there are so many different ways to figure out if a claim is valid.
