While suffering from a work-related injury in October 2010, 29-year-old Siti Arrayyan Hashim decided to make the most of it - by telling an insurer it had been caused by a "traffic accident".

Following her friend's instructions in a bid to benefit from a motor insurance scam he was masterminding at the time, she lodged a $5,241 claim with NTUC Income Insurance Cooperative.

This was for personal injuries caused by the "negligent driving" of one of its clients, who was purportedly involved in the accident.

Yesterday Siti Arrayyan, now 32, was sentenced to three months' jail for her connection to the staging of a multi-vehicle collision more than three years ago.
