‘Ghost’ Brokers insurance investigation - have you concerns about your motor insurance?

A major investigation is underway

An Garda Síochána Special Investigations Unit is carrying out a comprehensive investigation into Fraud related Insurance Ghost Brokering activities throughout the State.

If anyone has concerns about the bona fide of their Insurance Broker they should check with The Insurance Brokers Federation at www.centralbank.ie
