This is the story of a major scam. A 24-year-old man, apparently influenced by social media, is accused of being sold by many fake green car insurance vignettes.
He thought he had found the right vein to fool law enforcement. An influential 24-year-old man on the internet was driving a green car insurance vignette.
As revealed by Le Parisien, the accused worked with three accomplices to produce and sell more than a thousand dummy certificates for about fifty euros each. Among them was an employee of an insurance group who had managed to steal insurance certificates.
A widespread phenomenon
“It is a much more important phenomenon than one might think, a police officer told our colleagues. Many young people drive with these stamps on their windshields and manage to escape roadside checks. “
As Moneyvox points out, the Compulsory Damage Insurance Guarantee Fund (FGAO) estimates that more than 750,000 cars (excluding two-wheelers), or 2% of the car fleet, run without insurance.
