Tuesday, 06 June 2017 02:57:15 PM

Detectives investigating Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance fraud have charged a driver involved in a staged crash in Sydney’s south-west.

In August 2016, detectives from the State Crime Command’s Fraud and Cybercrime Squad established Strike Force Ravens to investigate syndicates targeting the CTP insurance scheme following recommendations of the CTP Task Force.

The CTP Task Force is a NSW Government initiative coordinated by the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), involving representatives from various government agencies and legal, health, and insurance sectors.

As part of ongoing investigations, Strike Force Ravens detectives arrested a 45-year-old man at a home on Elizabeth Drive, Liverpool, about 8am today (Tuesday 6 June 2017).

He was charged with two counts of fraud and refused bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court today.

Police will allege the man was the driver of a vehicle involved in a staged crash on Atkinson Street, Liverpool, on 6 May 2015, and submitted fraudulent property and CTP insurance claims.

The total value of the fraudulent claims was more than $150,000.

To date, Strike Raven investigators have arrested eight people and laid more than 70 charges in relation to a combined fraud of $6.2 million.
