Insuralex (Insurance Law) Latin American Reports Series
One of the great challenges facing insurers today is to have effective tools against insurance fraud. To this purpose, some Latin American countries have opted to include this type of conduct as a crime in their criminal law. Others, on the other hand, have opted for a generic criminal offense, such as fraud, which could include insurance fraud.
The differential treatment could explain why in some countries there are convictions against the perpetrators of these conducts and why in others there is no history of prosecutions.
In this context, this report presents the conclusions of the review carried out by the LatAm members of Insuralex on the existing regulations in their countries regarding fraudulent conduct against insurance.
