Watch Out for Fraud Taking Advantage of House Repair

Watch Out for Fraud Taking Advantage of House Repair
Warning! Suspicious!
"If you use the insurance, you can have your house repaired free of charge."

In the season of torrential rain or typhoon, you may be solicited "If you use the fire insurance, you can have your house repaired without the self-payment on your side." After making a contract, you make an application at the insurance company to find out the insurance money is not granted, and are charged a lot of money instead. This kind of trouble may increase in number.

  • Never make a contract on the spot, and talk with the insurance company or its agency.
  • If you make a false application, stating the damage by aging degradation as damage by natural disaster to receive an insurance money, you may be asked to return the insurance money or to cancel the contract, or even worse, you may be tried for fraud.
