Alarming healthcare news: taking the air out of airbag scams

Post by anikaj »

Imagine you’re driving home after a pleasant dinner with friends one night. An oncoming vehicle veers and slams into your car. Glass flies and metal buckles in that terrifying split second, but your airbag doesn’t open.

It’s unbelievable, not only financial and medical insurance, even airbags has been a tool for scam.

Zhensong flooded the U.S. market with tens of thousands of counterfeit bags made at his plant in China. A suspected cohort named Igor Borodin allegedly sold 7,000 of the knockoffs. All told, some 250,000 bags could be out there, either installed or waiting to be installed, the feds say. Zhensong has 37 months in federal prison to rethink his career choice.

How big is airbag fraud nationally? That’s anybody’s guess; nobody keeps total stats.
