... for cleaning much of the Evening SubStandard's ugly little xenophobia out of the item.
An Indian call centre manager is under investigation over allegations he used the identities of Brits to run an insurance fraud scam. Edward Burn, 30, has reportedly confessed to using the details of 12 people to make fictitious insurance claims valued at £56,900 through insurance firm Aviva, whose brands include Norwich Union …
**A spokeswoman for Aviva told the London Evening Standard that policyholders' money was never at risk from the scam**
What may happen, though, is they could lose no claims bonuses that are given on many policies due to a claim being registered on their accounts, and when someone puts in an insurance claim in the future, it could be refused because they have >apparently< claimed too many times recently. Also, their insurance premiums may suddenly increase by a much higher amount than the rate of inflation.
I think that means that at least some policyholders' money may well be at risk.
