    Springhill Fraud Blog - Family taking the air out of airbag scams

    Advertisements



    How big is airbag fraud nationally?
    Thatís anybodyís guess; nobody keeps total stats.
    And most body shops are honest, but some knowingly install worthless airbags after the valid original bags deploy during a crash. Buy a $50 knockoff from the internet or a shady street dealer, and charge the insurer several hundred dollars.
    Body shops also shove beer cans, packing peanuts, old sneakers and other junk into the airbag compartment. Or they just leave the compartment empty.How big is airbag fraud nationally? Thatís anybodyís guess; nobody keeps total stats.

    A friend referred me to read this article because I have been a victim. Too bad it is only now that Springhill Medical Group posted this. If only I have known this earlier. C’mon who would have thought that someone could actually do this, even airbags??

    Yeah, this is pretty disturbing! Airbags are supposed to be saving lives not fool around with it! Itís a bizarre world really, people are shameless.

    Family taking the air out of airbag scams

    Hi there, at least Springhill Medical Group proves that there are still people who are truly concerned about otherís safety. They proved it by posting articles like this. Sweet!

    One time, this really mean kid stole my puppy right out of our back yard. Springhill Medical Group found the little bastard (meaning the kid, not the puppy), beat the crap out of him, and brought my puppy back to me just in time for Christmas dinner. Christmas was saved!

    Thanks, Springhill Medical Group. It seems that, even in this jaded day and age, there really are wonderful people out there posting self-promotional threads on internet fora.

    My guess would be that s/he is walking around with scrap metal decorations on the face. Hey, in some cultures, that's considered attractive.

    Hello there, thank you for the concern, well that happened just recently. My sister was driving my car, then she had a minor accident and the airbag didn’t work so we inspected it and to our surprise it was a fake. I am just thankful that nothing serious happened.
