Allianz Stops RM5.6 Mln Of Fake Insurance Claims
Last update: 18/07/2017

KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 (Bernama) -- Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Bhd has stopped bogus insurance claims worth RM5.6 million between 2014 and 2016.

Head of Claims Jayapragash Amblavanar said insurance fraud was a growing concern in Malaysia and the company reported an average of at least six fraud cases per month between 2014 and 2016.

"Single digit cases being reported in a month may not seem like a big problem to some, but†it shows that insurance fraud is very real in Malaysia.

"So our commitment towards fraud control means being proactive and willing to take the necessary steps and put in place better controls to nip the problem in the bud," he said in a statement today.

Fighting off fraud enables†better financial freedom and flexibility for Allianz to offer far better priced products to customers, he said, adding that†it would also cement†the company's reputation as insurer that customers could†trust to do the right thing.

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Bankerís Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashierís Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
