UK drivers are being warned about a new type of scam which is being adopted by fraudsters across the country. The tactic dubbed ‘hide and crash’ is an evolution of previous tactics and involves a fraudster hiding in a driver’s blind-spot before quickly moving in front to ‘slam on’ the brakes. According to anti-fraud experts, the tactic is being used to try and trap unsuspecting drivers in a ‘crash for cash’ scam. The warning comes from experts at AX, which has previously exposed ‘flash for crash’ scams.
