Man throws himself onto car near Golden Mile Complex in latest please-hit-me scam

5734

A man has been caught on camera running towards then throwing himself onto a car which clearly came to a stop before he fell upon it. The man subsequently fell back onto the road, whereupon a supposed bystander rushed forward, from the direction the man was coming from, coming to the aid of the collapsed man.

The incident reportedly occurred around 5.45am on 5 Nov.

The videos, posted by Facebook user Jacky Ang, has gone viral with over half a million views in total.

The man who rushed toward the car appeared to be launching a please-hit-me scam – an insurance scam where a pedestrian deliberately vaults themselves onto a moving vehicle and fakes injuries in order to claim compensation.

This is not the first time a please-hit-me scam has been captured on tape in Singapore. Two different elderly men were captured attempting the stunt on two separate car in 2015 and 2016.

A driver moving along Farmway also fell victim to the audacious scam in June this year:
