Fake cancer victim jailed for insurance fraud

MCE Insurance

An 'out of control' woman has been jailed for 22 months after lying to insurance companies about having terminal cancer, losing a baby and suffering domestic violence.

Emma Fisher received 11 payouts from insurance companies over a four year period. She imputed case after case claiming nearly £8,500 and in one case a specially adapted house to help her cope with her fake disability.

Fisher impersonated doctors, police officers and other noted people of authority to support her claims. She also forged documents, one of which was a fake veterinary record for a dead Chihuahua created when she tried to claim on pet insurance.

She pleaded guilty to 22 counts of fraud at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Det Con Alex Cooley, of City of London police said, "over a number of years, devoted herself to the pursuit of making fraudulent claims in an ongoing quest to feather her own nest at the expense of others".
