    In the day and age of social media this went viral after the guy twittered it.

    What happened:

    Lady is driving in Baltimore, a guy runs a red light, hits and kills her.

    The lady had progressive

    Her brother tries to get progressive to pay the 75k her progressive policy was for

    Progressive informed him for them to pay, he had to sue the other driver and prove other driver was at fault

    The brother filed suit, the guy came with a lawyer and the lawyer accidently mentioned he worked for progressive.

    Progressive actually sent one of their lawyers to defend the other driver to make their driver look at fault so they didn't have to pay

    Technically it isn't fraud, it is just unethical and they got caught and instead of letting it go the guy was a comedian with a small number of followers, because of that and their retweets it went viral. Major news caught wind of it and then it really blew up. It used to be if you got fucked, it died with you, now with social media this guy blew it up in their face.

    tomtom never posted a picture in my thread.

    I actually haven't seen him post here in quite a few days.
