Keoghs’ clients in the insurance industry are increasingly concerned about the prevalence of fake adverts on search engines – one of the fastest growing aspects of online fraud. These fraudulent adverts have a significant knock-on effect on claimants and the insurance industry, but the Draft Online Safety Bill makes insufficient provision to tackle the problem.
