Mexico City: The Tactics Of The Crash Vehicle Scammers

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Video translation is as follows:

A video was disseminated on social networks. And in it you will see clearly how, I think we hadn’t seen this before, it shows how the so-called crash vehicle scammers operate. This happened on Eje 3 Oriente in the Iztacalco district. 

The persecution began at the corner of Avenida del Recreo and Eje 3 Oriente in the Itzacalco neighborhood of Mexico City.

The motorist turns and his camera captures the moment when a gray vehicle of the so-called crash vehicle scammers blocks his path to cause a collision. 

The driver notices and slows down. But once he’s nearing the Coyuya Metro, he passes them. They now start chasing him and are trying to hit him from behind. The driver turns into Calle Canela to try to lose them.

But there is a vehicle that doesn’t allow him to accelerate at the insistence of the crash vehicle scammers behind who accelerate their car towards him. He lets them pass and they slow down. It is there where 4 individuals initially descend from their vehicle, including a woman.

And they strike his car. Again the motorist reacts and goes into reverse to escape. As he backs away, it’s possible to see that in total there were 7 people who were trying to intimidate him.

The way these criminals operate is to simulate an accident. Braking sharply, crashing into the car to bring the driver to a stop. Once he descends, they intimidate and extort him for money. Demanding payments that according to the authorities range from fifteen hundred to thirty five thousand pesos.
