If you drive a car, you have the risk of facing this type of scam....

A consumer approached me on this problem. He had a minor accident 8 months ago. He decided not to make any insurance claim and carried out his own repairs. He has now received a large claim from the other vehicle with a witness report that placed him in the wrong. The claim was inflated and the witness was probably ,making a false statement.

He is now in a dilemma and does not know how to handle the third party claim. His only recourse was to engage his own lawyer to fight the claim, but it would be costly.
