Here's The Hilarious Moment A Moped Rider Apparently Tries To Fake A Crash-For-Cash Scam

This astonishingly brazen attempt to set an innocent driver up for compensation claims is so astonishing that we're having trouble believing that it's actually real...

Remind me later

We know it wouldn’t be funny if it happened to us, but we can’t help but laugh at what seems to be a truly awful staged attempt at a crash-for-cash wheeze.

We join the action somewhere in the UK on a residential street. As the camera car – whose dash-cam may have just paid for itself many times over – drives down the street towards a junction, a rider emerges alongside a moped, stopping it in the road as the car approaches before running it backwards and smashing it into the car.

The scumbag then throws himself (we’re going by body shape to pick a gender) backwards onto the bonnet, at which point his mate on the pavement seems to start filming the event – presumably as ‘proof’ of the impending personal injuries claim.

But as the shocked driver gets out of the car to confront the idiots, she points out the dash-cam and the two maggots make as run for it when they realise they’re rumbled. It’s astonishing footage. So astonishing, in fact, that we’re not completely convinced this isn’t a setup – a fake designed to win clicks. We’ll keep an eye out.
