The Birmingham mail last week reported on a Mercedes owner who was involved in a £30,000 crash for cash scam. This is also known as Crash for Instant Cash, where by the fraudster demands a cash sum from the victim for not calling the insurance company. This is all part of a national sting worth £400m a year, where organised criminals commit car crashes to cash in on the insurance money.
Crash for Cash scams is not a victimless crime. Honest car drivers pick up the bill from the fraud through increased premiums. Ask yourself this, would you give fraudsters £50 of your money each and every year?
