Who’s The Fool Now? Insurance Scammer Lands On The Wrong Car

In an era where everyone and their mothers use smartphones to film everything they see and the streets are constantly monitored by surveillance cams, it’s getting increasingly difficult to pull off an insurance scam.

The life of the insurance scammers is also made harder by the fact that more and more drivers fit dashcams to their cars to be able to demonstrate their innocence in case of an accident. As it turns out, dashcams are also a good weapon against insurance scammers and the following video is solid proof.

Shot in Baltimore, Maryland, the footage reveals a lame attempt from a pedestrian to squeeze money from an unsuspecting driver whose only fault was to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fortunately, the driver had their car fitted with a dashcam and it’s safe to say the camera paid for itself by capturing this incident alone.

As the driver approaches a bus station, we see a man wearing a hoodie and sunglasses suddenly throw himself on the hood of the cammer’s car. Given how slow the car was moving at the time and the fact that the fraudster didn’t even take his hands out of his pockets during impact, we’re guessing the car was the only one to suffer any damage — the pedestrian left a sizeable dent in the hood.

We don’t know what happened next as the video cuts off right after the pedestrian lands on the asphalt. However, we imagine he had a big surprise when he realized his shenanigans were caught on camera. To add insult to injury, a police car was parked just across the street from the scene of the so-called accident.

    I’d make him pay for the dent repair…

      plus Treble damages. Toss a couple of criminal charges at him while you’re at it.

      • Howfarr

        Plus time wasted, plus police time wasted, plus insurance time wasted, plus criminal record to save the next person he tries it on

  • HOODIES…ENOUGH SAID.

    Dash-cam should come standard on every new car…

    • brn

      Both our vehicles have one, but it was a $60 post purchase option.

    Having gone to college in charm city, I can tell you that there’s nothing charming about it. “Bawlmer” is completely corrupt, and the streets are overrun by dirtbags like this. The driver of the car will have to pay for the damages to his own vehicle, and the POS trash won’t spend a minute in jail. Don’t even get me started on the window washers at intersections.

      You get that when you go full Mogadishu.

    • Eagle By Singer

      “Charm City”
      Yeah, I can see why.

  • Paulbe

    I think you’ll find he’s anything but.

    Gotta love life in a frivolous lawsuit society!!!

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Ugh, Baltimore.

    If Maryland didn’t have to claim it, we wouldn’t.
