The nerve - or sheer stupidity - of some people!
A C7 Corvette owner told Geico he totaled it in a wreck on I-10 in Chandler, Ariz. Geico paid $61,465 to settle the claim, but then discovered a YouTube video (link below) showing how the Vette REALLY
got totaled - on a drag strip after he lost traction and smashed into a wall. Owner even had his own GoPro video of it.
The owner pleaded guilty to insurance fraud after the Arizona Department of Insurance Fraud Unit investigated, and after a plea agreement paid back the $61,465 to Geico, plus $1,560 in court costs. He will also serve two years of supervised probation for the insurance fraud.
