"Maybe they did a photoshop of me."
There was a car accident in Bronx, New York. The participants said that one vehicle stopped short, causing three cars to get into accidents. Eight people filed insurance claims due to injuries.
Police were suspicious, however, because none of the cars had much damage, and every person involved said they had been injured.
Police had two more reasons to be doubtful of their claims:
First, everyone involved were friends before the accident.
And second, the incident was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.
The camera, which the fraudsters obviously did not notice, showed the the three cars slowly driving around the block, backing their cars into each other, getting out to look at the damage, and then smashing their cars into each other again to create more damage.
All have been charged with insurance fraud, grand larceny and falsifying business records.
