This dishonest woman planned to fake getting hit by a car, and perhaps ruin the life of the driver, all the while collecting a nice insurance settlement.

Fake auto-related accidents are more common than you may think. So common, in fact, that the DMV has put out a bit of information on how to deal with such a problem.
Here are a few common schemes:
The T-Bone: Someone will wait for you to enter an intersection, then hit the gas, nailing you with a “T-Bone.” Fake witnesses, called shady helpers, then appear to claim that you ran a stop sign or street light.
The Wave: People wave that they are allowing you to switch lanes, then accelerate, forcing an accident. When police arrive, they deny the courtesy wave.
Dual Turn Sideswipe: A driver in an out lane watches to see if you drift even the slightest bit out of your lane. If so, they allow the collision, or cause the collision, then pin the wreck on you. Again, phony witness sometimes participate.
Brake Slam: Some scammers simply hit their brakes, causing you to rear-end them. In the end, it is your fault.
Swoop and Stop: One car stops in front of you, suddenly and unexpectedly, while another blocks you in from the side. This is devious!
Don’t worry, most people are good and honest. While these scams have been attempted in the past, statistics are on your side, if you are good and honest yourself.
