Tips and Tricks for Uncovering Premium Fraud – Premium Fraud occurs when an employer is not truthful about the number of employees to be covered by the insurance policy or is not truthful about the nature of the work the employees are doing (paying less due to a smaller risk of injury because the employer has not been truthful about the nature of the work). It also occurs when a person takes money from an employer under the pretense that the money will be used to purchase insurance to cover the employer’s employees.
