clean sheeting

Definition

A fraudulent activity whereby a life insurance policy is purchased by a party with knowledge of a pre-existing condition. The agent selling the policy typically has knowledge of the condition. The goal is to sell the policy shortly thereafter to receive a portion of the face value, to avoid detection of the falsehood upon death.
