Fraudster jailed for Insurance Scam and Stealing £18,000 f

"Aumran is a wholly deceitful person."

Fraudster Mohammed Aumran, aged 42, of Pudsey, Leeds, has been jailed for three years and one month after he made several false insurance claims.

Not only did he con a number of insurance companies but he also scammed his employer. Aumran lied to them about his poor insurance history.

Leeds Crown Court heard he stole approximately £18,000 while he was working at a claims management company. Aumran attempted to transfer a further £17,000 into his own account.

His crimes came to light after AXA Insurance raised a concern, leading to an investigation by the City of London Police’s Insurance Enforcement Fraud Department (IFED).

AXA had found that Aumran had lied when he purchased a home insurance policy. He had failed to disclose that he had been refused insurance.

He also bought car insurance and had submitted a false five-year no-claims discount letter.

IFED found out that Aumran had policies with several other insurers by using alias names in an attempt to avoid being caught.

In one case, he even changed his name by deed poll in order to scam NFU Mutual.

Whenever Aumran successfully obtained a policy, he made high-value claims for theft, burglary, and property damage, including several for escapes of water.

Aumran stole money from his employer by providing insurers with his own bank details instead of the ones from the companies to pay into.

He was subsequently fired from the company. They found that he had “inflated his position in the company to provide a reference for his niece, falsely claiming she worked there too, in order to help her get a job at another company”.

The serial fraudster admitted six counts of fraud by false representation and one count of fraud by abuse of position.

Detective Sergeant Andy Thomas led the investigation. He said:

“It’s clear from this case that Aumran is a wholly deceitful person.

“He was continually dishonest to insurers over many years in order to make numerous fraudulent claims against them and he not only defrauded his employer to initially get a job but also abused that position to steal tens of thousands of pounds.

“His fraudulent actions and lies have eventually caught up with him.”

“And thanks to the continued support from AXA, RSA, Aviva, Allianz and NFU Mutual throughout our investigation, we have been able to bring this serial offender to justice.”

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that Mohammed Aumran was jailed for three years and one month.
