KWAZULU-NATAL – Two suspects aged 33 and 45 are expected to appear in the Durban Regional Court, for insurance fraud which happened in Durban.

It is alleged that the 33-year-old suspect applied for R6.5 million life cover in one of the insurance companies in February 2020. Three months later, the 45-year-old beneficiary submitted a claim alleging that the insured person is dead. The insurance company ‘smelt the rat’ and investigated the matter. It was discovered that the supposed departed person was alive and a case of fraud was reported at Berea police station.

The case docket was allocated to the Hawks team from Durban Serious Commercial Crime Investigation for further handling. They were both served with summons yesterday, 10 May 2022 and are expected to appear in court on 5 July 2022.
