After an accident, genuine motorists would appear shocked or scared and will not be concerned about the condition of their car and others involved in the crash.
Motorists who have already written down their insurance details before the accident happened is another red flag.
While seeing injuries which look at odds with the force of the impact could also be a warning sign for motorists.
However, the IFB says those who believe they have been a victim of a scam should contact officials as soon as possible to investigate.
As many details as possible should be opted and handed over to the police and the IFB’s Cheatline service.
Mr Dalton said: “Crucially if you think you’ve been a victim, you can report suspicions of insurance fraud to our Cheatline at insurancefraudbureau.org/cheatline.”
