Nailing the fraudsters

29 Sep 2016

BLM partner David Spencer has been featured in a new series on Channel 5 which seeks to uncover the depths people will go to in order to commit insurance fraud.

David was interviewed for Undercover: Nailing the Fraudsters, discussing his part in defending the case of Summers v Fairclough Homes, which culminated in a change in the law relating to fundamental dishonesty.

The programme in which David featured also sees presenter Paul Connolly delve into the world of fraud, exposing fake death certificates obtained to cash in on lucrative life insurance policies, and as a case in which a man pretended to be in a coma to avoid conviction.
