The National Insurance Crime Prevention Bureau in the United States along with the Los Angeles Police Department has created a series of videos showing the common methods used to stage accidents.

“Staged or deliberately caused accidents continue to be a problem across the country,” said Joe Wehrle, NICB president and CEO. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the LAPD to make the public aware of these schemes and to let them know what to look for.”

This is also a major problem in Canada where auto insurance fraud adds an estimated $1.6 billion to auto insurance premiums according to the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

The following videos illustrate four staged accident scenarios and are available to view:

Curb Drive Down

Four Vehicles Fraud

Swoop and Squat

Left Lane Fraud
