Don’t rule out anyone in a possible search for “stolen” items in a reported loss claim. We recently conducted a search for stolen items and it turns out the Claimant’s son had loaded items such as a lawn mower, tool box, air compressor, power tools, weed trimmer into the back of his dad’s truck and just took off. The Claimant initially stated that he put all these items in his truck on a regular basis and he had no idea who did it. We found it hard to believe that every power tool he owned was kept in his truck. The Claimant has an idea that his son may have been the one to steal his truck and all the tools but he wasn’t being open and honest about it. The fraud was discovered and we helped to deny the claim and the son was reported to the authorities.
