Police warn against ‘ghost broker’ scams

Police are urging young drivers to remain vigilant when purchasing car insurance following a number of fake policy scams.

The force is warning that ghost brokers are targeting drivers, especially those aged 17 to 30–years–old, selling fraudulent insurance policies with an offer that seems too good to miss.

The police say criminals set up fake websites and use social media and online classification advertising to promote bogus policies.
