“By changing the date on your insurance card, you would be committing insurance fraud as well as forgery.
While insurance carriers require proof, they could still follow up with your prior insurance carrier to confirm. If they do that and find out that you lied, your policy will be cancelled. They could also report you to the Department of Financial Services for fraud. If reported, you can face fines and jail time.
Your car insurance
rates would also be significantly impacted. It may be hard to find an insurance company that would insure you after being charged with fraud.
While it may not seem like a big deal, what you may save isn’t worth the serious repercussions you may face.
If you can’t afford your new insurance policy without the prior insurance discount, you should continue to shop around.”
