After describing some of the maritime frauds that have been devised, the author notes that although suspicions of insurers may be aroused by certain peculiarities or by anonymous warnings, it is marine surveyors who of necessity are charged with carrying out initial inquiries. The purpose of this article is to recommend an approach that will enable surveyors to competently fulfill this responsibility. The approach involves careful attention to details and a cross-checking of all facts, with it borne in mind that inconsistencies point to irregularities.
