Man Gets £10k Of Car Insurance For Just £10

car insurance buryA conman from Liverpool was able to manipulate his way through a car insurance website to get himself £10,000 worth of cover for a measly £10. Callum Mullen, 33, from Merseyside (Parklands Way, Waterloo to be exact) managed to swindle the system to pay just 10 pounds to insure his Vauxhall Vectra. Mr Mullen has been charged with two counts of fraud at Liverpool Crown Court after the manipulation was discovered.

Mr Mullen was handed a suspended jail sentence last Friday along with 200 hours of unpaid work. The fraud took place in April 2012 when Mullen went online to sort out his car insurance. The insurer's anti-fraud system picked up the case shortly after. Mullen received his insurance certificate but the insurer has voided his policy and they referred the case to the IFED (City of London Police's Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department).

Mr Mullen was arrested at his home in December 2012 where the police found his laptop which contained the fraudulent insurance certificate. Police investigations showed that Mulled was in connection with 2 other men who were convicted in 2013 for similar activities. These 2 men were able to fiddle an insurer's website to obtain £187,000 worth of car insurance cover for just £30.

Mullen has been punished with an 18-month jail sentence, £500 court costs bill and a four month curfew on top of his 200 hours of unpaid work. Detective Constable Mark Reynolds of the IFED said: "Mullen manipulated an insurer's website to get a car insurance policy worth £10,000 for only a few pounds. He obtained this policy in an attempt to convince police and highway authorities that he was a legally insured driver so he could move around the country uninhibited. Thanks to our investigation and the insurer's fraud detection systems Mullen has been fully exposed as an insurance fraudster and made to pay for his crime."
