Digital Fraud Detection
We specialise in Digital Investigation of Motor Insurance Fraud. We are experts in the analysis of “staged collisions” where a vehicle has been reported as crashed, however the collision never happened. We deploy digital forensic methods to undercover the traces stored in vehicle modules. We recover the last events such as any collisions and can identify the vehicle's engine temperature at the time of the collision, the KM reading and the time and date the collision took place. These parameters often assist claims handlers to solve or verify claims. In some cases a fraudulent claim can be detected.
Keyless Theft Investigation
KEYLESS entry car theft is gaining proliferation across Europe and Asia as more criminals are using radio transmitters to perform ‘relay’ car hacks to steal high end vehicles. Car Crime Criminals are exploiting the vulnerabilities of keyless entry system using pairs of radio transmitters by capturing the signal from the car’s fob. The crime can happen close to the owner without their knowledge or by a relay attack.
Keyless entry allows drivers to open and start the vehicle without even touching the fob or even removing it from their pocket. Fraudulent claims whereby the owner provides a non-original key to the insurance company are growing. To verify the key, Digitpol can check if the key belonged to the reported stolen vehicle. In some cases the key was not from the reported vehicle.
Keyless Theft Investigation – “The vehicle's owner hands a key to the insurance of a reported stolen motor vehicle – We can check if the key belonged to the reported stolen vehicle”.
