If you have not committed fraud, don’t be alarmed. We have handled cases where the insurance company alleges fraud as a heavy handed tactic to get the beneficiary to drop the life insurance claim. If the insurance company knows of fraud that has take place they have to report said fraud to the State of Missouri. Often times they don’t do this because all they care about is scaring the beneficiary into thinking they don’t have a claim. The fraud regulation in Missouri reads:
