The true policy of fighting fires not only seeks to detect and extinguish them early, but above all to prevent them from occurring, it recommends improving accesses, tracks and forest roads in poor condition, cleaning the vegetation cover on which power lines run or the prescribed burns to provide barriers to the spread of fire. Cheating the insurer means the immediate termination of the policy, losing the right to compensation and, in the most serious cases, facing prison sentences . This type of scam consists of "carrying out acts or conscious omissions that seek to deceive to obtain an economic benefit from a third party." Insurers devote considerable resources to investigating these cases, saving them a lot of money. Sometimes policyholders try to aggravate personal injury or damage from an accident. The explanation for the rise of this fraud is that the compensation for this cause is important. And the life and home insurance lines are not spared either: in this section we try to "strain" extra damages in the event of an electrical accident, if there is water damage or those derived from a theft.
