11 Arrested for Multi-Million Shekel Defrauding of Insurance Companies


Investigators for the central district's Fraud Unit yesterday (Monday) placed 11 suspects under arrest for allegedly participating in a scam which defrauded insurance companies of millions of shekels through submitting false claims on the day of a supposed accident.

The investigation revealed that three body and paint shops in Tel Aviv, Nes Tziyona and Petah Tikva, respectively, orchestrated accidents for their customers who would then submit the false insurance claims.

Six of the accused will be brought to the Rishon Letziyon District Court to determine their continued remand into custody.
