Have you ever ‘tweaked the truth’ on an insurance claim?

Have you ever ‘tweaked the truth’ on an insurance claim?

Lying on an insurance claim is fraud. No question. Yet many people admit to ‘tweaking the truth’ (still fraud) like saying their mobile phone was taken from their bag when they know the bag was unzipped and it dropped out or claiming they had whiplash after only having a minor car prang.

We want you to be honest to see how widespread an issue this is.

Have you ever bent the truth? Please answer for each insurance policy you've ever claimed on:

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
