  • Burning of property to collect insurance money
  • Claiming that property was damaged in an accident when it was not damaged
  • Faking an accident to receive money
  • Falsely stating that a vehicle was stolen to collect money
  • Falsifying a personal physical injury to collect money
  • Overstating the damage to property

California Penalties for Insurance Fraud
