Life Insurance fruad claim foiled by search engine
A Simple Google search may prove NRL fan Clint Elford’s undoing.
When the insurance company Allianz did an online check of a medical report supplied by the 27-year-old Goulburn man, in support of a life insurance cliam, it is alleged it found the names of some of the doctors mentioned in the document were misspelt.
Allianz contacted police who began an investigation. On Tuesday morning Elford was talking to a television crew about the $30,000 he had donated to the Cronulla Sharks when he was arrested.
It was a staggering reversal of fortune. A few months ago he was wealthy – insurance company, AIG Life, had paid a $525,000 life insurance claim.
But it is understood that Elford spent every cent and yesterday was unable to find anyone who could offer the $50,000 surety he needed to be released on bail from Silverwater Jail. Elford was charged with two counts of making a false statement to obtain money and another of making and using a false statutory declaration.
