Do you know your Nintendo Wii from your PSP? The range of games available to play on game consoles is vast.

But there is one particular game which is causing a furore among the industry's fraud detectives.

No, the IFB isn't learning how to detect fraud exag-geration by using computer simulation.

The exact opposite,in fact.

Forget racing in the virtual streets of Gran Turismo, a new game will earn points if you are able to rip off your insurance company.

The bigger financial rewards you are able to claim the more points you get.

With the prisons full perhaps training criminals is an ironic attempt at keeping fraudsters out of jail?
