The men behind what has been described as the biggest cash for crash scam in Britain have been jailed for a total of 11 years between them. Brothers, Rezwan and Rehan Javed were found guilty of conspiracy to defraud and possession of an article for use in fraud at an earlier trial. Rezwan received a jail sentence of 6 years, while his older brother Rehan was jailed for 5 years. It is understood that the duo paid drivers to drive around roundabouts and brake suddenly, causing the driver behind to smash into the rear of the car. The brothers would then make numerous claims from the insurance company, falsely claiming for vehicle write-offs, and for personal injury claims for at least three passengers travelling in the vehicle which was hit, netting £3,000 in compensation per passenger. It’s been reported that the two brothers made almost a £1 million pounds through their cash for crash scams. The pair ran a company which took a cut from the solicitors referral fees, courtesy car hire and storage and recovery of the vehicles. The two brothers were found guilty of defrauding the insurance companies at their trial at Manchester Crown court last week. In 2008 another member of the gang, Mohammed Patel, run by the Javed brothers was jailed after he admitted being the driver in over 90 cash for crash collisions.
