A 38-year-old Scarborough, Ontario man has pleaded guilty to his role in an elaborate insurance scam that defrauded insurance companies out of $1.5 million.

Insurance fraudster pleads guilty to bilking insurers out of $1.5 million - whole article (http://www.ilstv.com/insurance-fraudster-pleads-guilty-to-bilking-insurers-out-of-1-5-million/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=DailyNewsletter)

Coles notes:

Uthayakanthan 'Max/Mano' Thirunavukkarasu admitted to participating in a criminal organization which controlled several physio clinics. They would stage accidents, over state the injuries, and bill the insurance companies for the rehab.

$1.5 mil for 13 staged accidents.

If 1 group of people can bleed the system for that much, is it that hard to believe the estimated fraud losses for the whole province would reach $1.5 billion?

Yup. Funny enough, most I've met in my life have been shady con artists on some level. Lol.

I review hundreds if not thousands of claims reports each year. I see injury claims for hundreds of thousands of dollars when the damage to the car was under $500, not a credible combo. I can assure you, there is not one race that is entirely innocent.....or guilty.

I wonder what will be the punishment...a slap on the wrist
maybe South will send him for rehabitation.. cant be too harsh on the punishment...

With all the bad press the insurance industry is getting, rates going up, more fraud, no control on costs.... I wouldn't be surprised if they try to make an example out of him. After all, through the botched arrangement of an accident, he did brain damage one of his 'victims'.

...fraud is much higher in the USA ...

How much higher is it in the states? Can you post the numbers or even just a link to the source? I'm interested to know what they were comparing, exactly. *th-up* Thanks!

I think the government should actually do the opposite... GET out of mandating any kind of insurance. No insurance? then your car isn't covered to be fixed.

Everyone gets basic medical coverage if you are in an accident, or hit in an accident, and what should be the responsibility of everyone to have is a life insurance policy that covers accidental injuries.

Unless there is a criminal charge then there should be no claims for damages. A pure accident is just that an accident, extra financial coverage can come from your own life insurance. If I'm hit by a car, a train, or a small space object I'm covered, and it doesn't cost anyone's insurance to go up.

So what if an innocent kid is hit? Well #1 that kid should have some life insurance. This way they get a cash settlement for permanent injuries #2 If it was criminal (DUI) then they can sue guilty parties for further damages. In any case the kid goes to the hospital and gets medical care, regardless if he has insurance or not or if it was an accident or not.

That means auto insurance will simply cover the auto... and not a bunch of other crap that auto insurance has adopted over the years. If you want your auto insurance to cover other 'CRAP' then that should be optional... not mandatory.

Whenever the government gets involved with minimums or setting what should be mandatory then prices go up.

I own a small p.i. firm in Ottawa and we investigate Insurance Fraud all the time. It's quite satisfying to personally be responsible for nailing these shysters - rarely are criminal charges brought forward, but their claims are denied. They try to fight it but once their lawyer sees the incriminating video that I collect, they have no case.

Why don't they just hire more people like you? I guess they haven't been mandated to do so yet. :rolleyes:

So your basically saying reduce auto insurance coverage and increase life insurance coverage.

Do you somehow believe that the life insurance industry is somehow immune to fraud and at the same time stupid enough to not increase premiums while assuming the additional risk that the auto insurance company is no longer responsible for?

its a good thing that guy and his team got caught but i dont see why there is a race card being pulled here...

how many russians, italians etcc have committed fraud on a level that shocked our society? How many caucasian canadian males rape, molest, killed kids? how many black people sell drugs???

its one thing to state a crime committed by an individual but another when anyone/race can do the same if they were given or had the oppertunity to take it...

as for dbworld pretty sad that you keeping meeting these low lifes your entire life....makes me wonder how shady you yourself might be.
