In the last seven odd years, there have been over 22 000 fraudulent “car accidents” resulting in payouts of up to £30 000 a time.
Innocent drivers are targeted and involved in deliberate collisions with scheming con men/women with insurance companies having to cough for the damage.
This actually happened to one of wifey's friends- a male driver goaded her into a speed chase and then stood on his brakes with her ploughing into the back of his car. In the eyes of the law, she was at fault and so her insurance paid out on the damage, plus compensation etc.
Lovely world we live in, eh?
