Watch an auto shop commit insurance fraud

We won't say it's human nature to cheat, but humans and cheating go together often enough to make us consider it.

In another example of trying to make crime pay, Castilla y León television captured an auto shop in Spain that it says was intentionally damaging cars in order to get insurance money. The shop reportedly drove cars into walls, into lifts and even into other cars after the business was closed for the day. The fraud apparently benefits the shop because the more pieces it has to put back together, the more profit it earns per item. We're just glad a disgruntled employee who was fired and wanted revenge decided to tip the authorities, and for that we thank him.

The Spanish-language video is after the jump, and it includes sacrificial Audi, Renault, Mercedes-Benz and SEAT autos, among others. It ain't pretty.
