Social media proves to be the downfall for fundamentally dishonest fraudster

09 Apr 2019

Insurance Times reviews our case where a fraudster has been found guilty of fundamental dishonesty and ordered to pay costs of £4,800 after claiming on a road traffic accident.

BLM, working with Allianz Insurance won the claim against Paulina Cieluszek after posts she shared on social media conflicted with the evidence she provided to support the claim.

Cieluszek claimed to have suffered from severe pain as a result of the accident which occurred in December 2016, but during cross examination, Allianz and BLM found she had been fundamentally dishonest when evidence of her social media activity was presented, painting a very different story of her mobility during the prognosis period.
