In life, fewer things are more despicable that someone trying to scam an innocent person. But this happens far more often than you might think. When it comes to scams, there are too many to mention. People with criminal minds have no problem finding ways to take advantage of others to get what they want.
But one particular type of scam has been a big deal…car accidents. If you watch videos online, there’s a good chance you’ve seen how some of them work. For instance, an individual will lightly bump into a vehicle and then claim serious injury.
But thanks to dash cams, automobile insurance scams are starting to decline. With advanced technology, people now have proof of what happens in front and in back of them while on the road. And since so many people now have dash cams installed, crooks should be wary of who they cross.
As mentioned, phony car accidents are among the biggest scams people pull today. Using a dash cam, people capture all kinds of things. Sometimes, the footage shows something horrific. And other times, it’s just too funny not to share.
For one woman, her dash cam caught a fake car accident as it unfolded. In a video that’s now been viewed around the world, she’s minding her business while driving down the road. Then out of nowhere, she sees a motorcyclist wearing a helmet push his bike directly in front of her vehicle.
Coming to a stop
With the motorcyclist now directly in front of her, she begins to slow down. But that’s when she notices a second man who’s standing off to the side. At first, it appears he’s simply watching the world go by but that changes.
What’s he doing?
By now, the motorcyclist has stopped right in the middle of the road, still in front of the female driver. Suddenly, he starts moving it backward towards her car until it finally makes contact. But he then does something she never expected.
You’ve got to be kidding
After lightly tapping his bike against the front end of her vehicle, the man hurls himself into the car’s windshield, followed by falling to the ground. That’s when the observer approaches saying he has the whole thing on video.
That’s right, the guy who looked like he didn’t have a care in the world was the motorcyclist’s accomplice. But this female driver has a dash came rolling and she’s not amused. So, she gets out of her car and begins to argue with the two idiots.
She figures it out
Quickly, the woman knows what’s going on. You can hear her say, “You guys are together.” But she has a lot more to say, including that she’s calling the police and has everything on a dash cam video. Keep in mind they didn’t seem too worried…until she mentioned the dash cam.
A turn of events
The minute she points to her vehicle letting them know they’re on camera, their attitude changes. The motorcyclist who just a minute before claimed to be seriously injured and his friend who had it all on tape? Well, they ran as fast as they could in opposite directions.
The moral of the story
As far as the two wanna-be criminals, we have no idea where they went. But here’s the deal. There’s an old saying, “Crime doesn’t pay” and this certainly proves that. To protect yourself when driving, either invest in a dash cam or learn about the most common types of scams so you can avoid becoming a victim.
