“Under no circumstances should you purposely set your car on fire for insurance money. This is insurance fraud. Depending on where you live, this is punishable by up to five years in prison, suspension of your driving privileges, and/or a hefty fine.
While trying to trick your insurance company may seem like a way to get money quick, it’s not worth the risk. Car insurance companies deal with countless claims and are experts at sniffing out lies. With a claims adjuster and police on the case, getting away with fraud is highly unlikely.
If you want to save some cash, you still have other alternatives, although you’re also going to need some patience. With the
