Next Episode of Claimed and Shamed is
Documentary series that casts a covert eye over the ever-growing problem of insurance fraud, and sees outlandish claimers as they're caught out on camera.
A large-scale bogus injury scam is foiled as a group of football supporters fail to clock the CCTV cameras on board the bus, a motorist is caught in the act when he tries to repeat a previous claim by deliberately causing an accident, and social media is the undoing of a bride-to-be's claim for a lost engagement ring. A driver's attempt to exaggerate his claim backfires when he can't get his story straight and in America, a psychiatrist involved in diagnosing patients with false mental illnesses is exposed in one of the largest fake prescription scams in history.
A driver's personal injury claim is rumbled when CCTV footage reveals that he was never even in the car, while a woman's attempt to cash in at the expense of her travel insurer is exposed, thanks to her childish counterfeit skills. It is bad news for a burglary claim when a photo of one of the stolen items includes a newspaper from after the date of the burglary, and a party-loving claimant is caught out when his friends and family reveal that his accident was nobody's fault but his own. A claim for fire damage goes up in smoke when insurers prove the claimant didn't even own the house at the time, and an opportunistic bus passenger fails to spot the cameras recording his every move when he changes the sequence of events to suit his personal injury claim.
A gang that risked the lives of innocent motorists by deliberately causing crashes is brought to justice, while undercover filming catches out a budding entrepreneur who thinks he can claim on his income protection policy whilst running his own business. Metadata and a feeble attempt at forgery derail a fraudulent claim for possessions lost on a train, social media posts come back to haunt a woman trying to insure her mobile phone after she has lost it on a drunken night out, and a boxer's ham-fisted bid to cash in with a bogus personal injury claim is knocked back by his insurer.
The next stop is jail for a gang that made the mistake of thinking it could cash in by deliberately causing a collision with a bus, while a holidaymaker's claim for lost luggage is grounded thanks to forged documents. Information embedded in digital photos submitted to back up a burglary claim proves that the items were never even stolen, and a phone call comes back to haunt a motorist claiming for compensation two-and-a-half years after the accident took place. Time is called on a personal injury claim against a pub when CCTV shows the claimant wasn't even there, and in America a woman is found guilty of killing her husband for money.
