    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

The name on the V5 is the person who is the registered Keeper, not the owner. When your friend took out the insurance policy though, they expect it to be in the name of the "main driver" which presumably is him (or at least you can justifiably state it is him). Now depending on how they phrased the question, they may have asked him who is the owner of the vehicle, which he could say is him, or they may have asked "is the car registered in your name", to which he would have had to tell them no.

thanks crem

 

so as you say "The name on the V5 is the person who is the registered Keeper, not the owner" but what if i am the owner but on my friends insurance policy he is down as the owner and i am registered to drive it at his address--have we commited fraud not that we have without knowing

 

thanks--i see the phase "fronting" on car insurance quite common is this what we are hopefully not commiting

Your friend has knowingly attempted to defraud the insurer by claiming to be the owner when establishing the policy, when clearly he is not

Confusion over owner and RK is not 'fronting'.

 

Fronting is when the policyholder is not the main driver. It is generally parents insuring a child's car to reduce the premiums who are the biggest group of culprits.

I'm not sure why a different name on the V5 and on the insurance policy will automatically constitute fraud allowing the insurance company to duck out of any payments.

 

If the name on the V5 is 1 of the 2 authorised drivers, and the car is owned by 1 of the 2 authorised drivers, and the name on the policy is 1 of the 2 authorised drivers, and the driver at the time of the accident was 1 of the 2 authorised drivers, where is the fraud?

 

blu ray, can you add some more info to this picture, coz there is obviously something more to this situation than you are telling us I think.

The insurance claim should be submitted and handled by the policy holder at all times. If the driver of the vehicle at the time was not the policy holder, but is a named driver I am not sure why any issue with the claim should arise. as you further state the accident was caused by a 3rd party going through a red light, then ultimately your insurance company should not be paying anything out.

It won't - in itself. What constitutes fraud is that the 'friend' told the insurer that he was the owner, when he patently was not.

Blu Ray,

If what you say is correct regarding the other person hitting you after passing a red light then you can claim directly from them. How clear is the other drivers liability in this matter? Did anyone else witness the accident? Do you have all the details? If the accident is clearly the other drivers fault then it is that drivers insurance which should be paying and with this in mind you can claim directly from them without going through your own insurance.

I'm guessing that the police have already checked both drivers documents and have deemed them in good order? The police don't generally get involved with matters regarding 'small print' on insurance policies so as long as they see your name on the document then they'll be happy.

In the longer term however you need to consider what others have already stated re fronting. If you were involved in an accident and you were held liable then your insurance might dispute liability if they thought that you'd provided them with incorrect answers when the policy was applied for.

Regardless of this; you have had an accident and the policyholder will be contractually bound to inform your insurance company of this - whether claiming or not.

This is clearly fronting.

 

This is your car which you use most if not all the time, I'm guessing your in your late teens and mum/dad has insured the car because its cheaper than you insuring it in your own name.

 

Your mum/dad commit offences of making false statement to obtain insurance under the road traffic act ("are you the owner and registered keeper of the vehicle Mrs Smith" . "yes I am" "will you be the main driver" "yes i will Little johny might drive it at weekends now and again" all of which has been recorded by the insurance company) and potentialy other criminal offences.

 

As far as your insurance is concerned if they find out they will drop your claim quicker than a quick thing leaving you open to all sorts of litigation. Being a newly qualified driver (Im guessing) you are a much greater risk than your parents and should pay a premium which reflects this.
