GoCompare Car Insurance has warned that victims of ghost broking lose £769 on average and face penalties for uninsured driving.

The price comparison website called on consumers to avoid heavily discounted car insurance deals they see advertised on social media.

A ghost broker is someone who poses as a legitimate insurance broker to sell forged or invalid car insurance policies to drivers, who are attracted by cheap, too-good-to-be-true premiums.
