‘Crash for Cash’ is about insurance fraud, which is as exciting as it sounds, ie, not very. Up in Durham, Officer Dave is trying to pin down Paul Jonathan Wright, a criminal ‘mastermind’ who owns a scrap yard and stages car accidents. Thus rinsing insurance companies for towing and junking costs on top of damage and whiplash claims.
But it’s not just him: 70 others – including seven from Wright’s family – have been arrested for crashing for cash. These scams have pushed Durham residents’ premiums up by £100! It’s outrageous, but what’s more so, is that anyone would want to spend an hour of their precious, recession-hit free time watching this rubbish.
