Ghost Brokers: who ya gonna call?

Just 15% of people have heard of a ‘ghost broker’, according to a YouGov survey commissioned by the IFB . It’s a scary figure, so what are they and who do you turn to if there's something weird and it don't look good?

‘Ghost brokers’ are fraudsters who sell fake or invalid car insurance policies, and they have been on the rise since the start of the pandemic. Victims are sold fake insurance documents for a policy that does not exist, or for a genuine policy that has been set up using false details to lower the price of the premium.
