When it comes to fibbing to find lower home insurance rates when using price-comparison websites, two in three U.K. consumers say the practice is acceptable, according to a recent survey from LexisNexis Risks Solutions.

Further, around half of the survey respondents who had recently filed a home insurance claim were more likely to consider exaggerating or adjusting a future claim in order to get a higher payout. Those that have recently filed claims and saw a premium increase also are more likely to think it is OK to manipulate information on insurance forms.
