On 17 October 2014, the Insurance Fraud Bureau in the UK (IFB) issued a press release stating that, from 2015, it will broaden its areas of focus to other insurance products besides motor insurance. These other areas will include fraudulent injury claims and organised liability fraud, including so-called 'slip and trip' scams. The IFB intends to become a central intelligence management hub for the industry in relation to fraud data and intelligence, following on from the June 2014 IFB consultation regarding its future strategic direction.
