Crash For Cash Fraudsters Jailed – Claims Management Company Caught Organising Collisions

Wo fraudsters have been jailed and a claims management company closed after the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) and Metropolitan Police exposed a crash for cash fraud ring.

The Met Police Traffic Unit launched an investigation in November 2011 after receiving information that Kami Claims Management was organising accidents across London.

On 1 February, at Southwark Crown Court, Andre Malagiac was sentenced to 12 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to defraud and Ion Vaduva received a four-month prison sentence and had his car seized for his role as a stooge driver who deliberately caused collisions.

Malagiac, Kami’s company secretary, helped to orchestrate the scams in collusion with stooge drivers, who were sent out to cause crashes with motorists, typically on slip roads or roundabouts.

IFB head of operations Ben Fletcher said: “A joint investigation by the Metropolitan Police and IFB exposed a potentially multi-million pound fraud production line, which was masked behind the seemingly legitimate front of a claims management company. Guilty pleas demonstrate the quality of evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police, Ministry of Justice and insurance industry, while the convictions should send a clear message to fraudsters”.
