    I had a claim just like this.

    The first involve to claim for replacement cost predated the date of loss.
    The second invoice was from a non-existent roofing contractor.
    The third invoice was from an electrician in a town 200 miles away.
    When I advised the insured of all the discrepancies, plus the fact the field adjuster went to the contractor’s office and found an vacant building owned by the insured, the phone number shown on the receipt was a fax machine in the insured’s office, and reminded the crook that the penalty for insurance fraud was pretty severe, I never heard from him again.

    The client would not agree to turning the matter over to TDI for investigation, and the file was closed.
