The Easy Way to Get a New Car: Have Your Old One Stolen!


I don’t own a car. I swore off them after I left Los Angeles. Too much stress. I had driving and drivers. And Buenos Aires would be way worse than LA, which I didn’t think was possible.

Anyway, it turns out that there are services that will “steal” your car for you if you are tired of fixing it and want to make an insurance claim to get some cash for a new one. I now have 3 contacts who have had this done and they say it works like a charm.

Isn’t this insurance fraud? I ask them.

They laugh. Of course it is!

Ah the ways of Argentina.
