Avtopodstava failed (auto-support)

The autostand failed

After the "blow", one of the scammers began to threaten the owner of the "Niva", and another struck the machine with sandpaper

On Monday in Moscow, car scammers were detained, who were engaged in organizing fake crashes and extorting money from drivers. They were detained by traffic police and MUR officers who found out one of them, already involved in such crimes.

Two natives of Georgia, engaged in organizing fake crashes and further extorting money from drivers, were caught during the last "case." With the victim, they claimed 6 thousand rubles. The driver of the "Niva" was thrown into the door of the potato to simulate a blow, and then was charged with allegedly colliding with a car of "supporters" - Mercedes of the executive class, Petrovka, 38 reported.

This happened on the Moscow Ring Road towards Shchelkovo Highway in the area of ​​100 km. After the "blow" one of the swindlers began to threaten the owner of the "Niva", demanding 6 thousand rubles, and another one struck the body of the car with sandpaper to simulate damage from the collision. On the scam machine, scratches on the front left wing had already been made in advance.

When the scammers were about to leave, the inspectors of the special mobile group of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate and the officers of the 11th Department of the Moscow Police Department, who were passing by the place of the "accident", recognized one of them, who was already being brought in for such crimes, and took the whole group red-handed.

As the operatives say, even without examination it was evident that the damage on the machines did not coincide, and when they searched one of the detainees found a skin with the remaining paint on it from the Niva. 24-year-old Gisher Iardalashvili named Djem and 26-year-old Levan Kotorashvili arranged accidents at the Moscow Ring Road. Officers of the Moscow Security Ministry believe that the account of this gang is not one dozen false accidents.

Previously, law enforcement agencies noted that recently in the Russian capital, there have been frequent cases of attacks on owners of expensive foreign cars. Similar crimes are common in St. Petersburg. "While one of the criminals is talking, the other skin is damaged in the right rear of the car, usually a wing and a door. Then they show him and they say - you see, you scratched us, "said Alexander Bendr, an operative officer of the 16th department of the Department of Internal Affairs at the Central Internal Affairs Directorate of St. Petersburg.

How often such substations occur, the traffic police and the Central Internal Affairs Directorate are not known. Scammers always offer to understand without waiting for the police, if the "victim" still calls the law enforcement agencies, the criminals immediately leave. According to some estimates, drivers of front cars earn up to 10 thousand dollars a month. Unfortunately, it is practically impossible to prove such crimes, and relatively low fines for fraud make auto-provision a very profitable business.
