Taskforce targets green slip fraud
THE NSW Government will establish a taskforce and hotline to crackdown on CTP fraud across the state.
Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation Victor Dominello said that the average green slip for a car in Sydney now costs more than $600, and prices had risen up to 70 per cent since 2008, with fraud being a contributing factor.
"The NSW Government has identified an alarming rise in suspected fraudulent CTP claims. This is unfair and cheats all motorists who end up paying higher green slip prices," he said.
"A dedicated fraud taskforce is being established to crack down on this issue.
"This is a very serious issue and I strongly urge anybody who suspects fraud to report it to the newly established CTP Fraud Hotline on 1800 600 444."
