Abstract
    Scuttling is one of the more spectacular instances of maritime fraud, yet it’s probably not very common. A sudden upsurge in scuttling cases off the Netherlands coast just after the first World War was at the time explained by pointing at the way ships were insured - a heavy reliance on trust, a taste for premium coupled with lack of control. Today, our perspective on scuttling is very much influenced by two notorious scuttling cases, the Lucona and the Salem. Analysis of these and other cases indicates that the practice of marine insurance still seems to contribute to the phenomenon of maritime fraud. Among the criminogenic circumstances the Netherlands marine insurance industry seems to feature, the reliance on trust relationships within the market stands out. Interestingly, insurance professionals underline that they trust.
