Brothers convicted of £12m cash for crash insurance scam

A pair of brothers have been convicted of masterminding a £12m scam that saw them deliberately stage car crashes in order to swindle insurance companies.

Rezwan and Rehan Javed paid drivers up to £500 a time to stage accidents that would then lead to a series of bogus insurance claims. Their company, North West Claims Centre, would create invoices for such things as car recovery, salvage and car hire, which they would then pass onto the motorist.
