Major schemes to divorce the two:
- The scammers hunt on the road in distress car offer the driver to take him to “your” service nearby, for services in which they, of course, waiting for a rollback. As a rule, from the despair of the drivers agree. And then in the service impose unnecessary work auto, complex diagnosis and other actions are not necessary.
- The wrecker organize the schema in which you intentionally spoil the car, and then it is rescued and brought to the same “your” service. For example, in a certain place on the highway dropped a homemade metal hedgehogs that damage wheel to the driver. Meanwhile, a tow truck pulls up, offers to help, calling the price is cheaper than market price: the average price for Moscow 3500-4500 rubles, announces the 2500. The driver, of course, agrees. The victim is being taken to address and is already in place, it appears that the price of 8000 rubles, because the 2500 is just feeding and loading a broken car.
The reaction of victims
First scenario: the driver starts to occur, then there are four or five accomplices and “convinced” to pay for services.
If the victim is a girl, she begins to call husband, friend. As a rule, a man advises to pay if there is a danger, and he promises then to understand. Later after the incident, a decision that should not be lifted all on ears due to three to four thousand. And the theme of disappearing.
— Hello, dear, here’s the thing… Hello, dear, here’s the thing…
The consequences of fraud are very serious. Ranging from causing damage to car and wallet of the owner (can unload the car on the lawn, unwind at a costly repair) to its health (in the process of “beliefs” you just simply can beat).

The places need to be especially careful
Most importantly, the place where drivers should be vigilant — track. But often, these fraudsters have accomplices: group power cover, the people in the car repair and gas stations, where you can, for example, instead of gasoline to pour another liquid.
