A former Axa employee has been jailed for 12 months after stealing over £10,000 in total from insurers including Aviva, RSA, Allianz and Direct Line Group.
Jack Burton, was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on 18 July for making nine fraudulent claims against several insurers.
He also pleaded guilty to abusing his position as an insurance claims handler at Axa, stealing £7,779.
Following an investigation by the City of London Police’s Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED), Burton was sentenced to 12 months in prison.
IFED stated it was alerted to Burton’s fraudulent activity in July 2017, when Aviva suspected fraudulent insurance claims had been made against a policy under his name and a company that was linked to him.
