Industry employees don't like to pay for tube tickets

More likely to don pocket protectors (it’s a Canadian thing) than handcuffs, Backchat was surprised to learn that seemingly innocuous insurance workers break the law with some frequency.

According to research by TV Licensing, insurers are joined by others in the finance and legal sectors as the unlikely culprits behind some common white-collar crimes, including speeding and travelling on public transport without a valid ticket.

Insurers were also the most likely to admit they personally knew a lawbreaker.

They weren’t so tolerant, however, with crimes that hit them in their own pockets, with 55% of those surveyed saying they would turn someone in to the police for stealing or committing fraud.
