Fraud

Assupol life is waiting for the verdict in the Nomia Ndlovu case before acting.

JOHANNESBURG, South AfricaAssupol Life, an insurance firm, said on Thursday that it was awaiting the outcome of a trial involving a former Tembisa constable before taking further action against her.

After several of her relatives were murdered, Nomia Ndlovu is accused of receiving over R1.4 million in burial and life insurance policies over a six-year period.

Her boyfriend, Maurice Mabasa, who was insured by Assupol, was one of her victims.

The harrowing story of Ndlovu has brought attention to insurance fraud. She is suspected of acquiring insurance policies and then murdering six individuals to collect the proceeds.

Last month, life insurers in South Africa recorded 3,186 occurrences of fraudulent and dishonest claims totalling more than R5 million.

Assupol senior executive manager Jacques Erasmus noted that while insurance fraud was becoming more prevalent in the country, the type of insurance fraud allegedly involving the former Tembisa cop was extremely exceptional.

“With the exception of the current case in court, Assupol Life has had no such cases in the last two years. He stated, "This is the only one we are aware of."

Erasmus has advised people to be cautious and avoid disclosing personal information.
