    Are you alluding to the story you linked to being a farce/scam? Why would you assume something like that? He even said he lost thousands due to modifications he made to his vehicle that aren't going to be recouped.

    It wouldn't be insurance fraud. I'd just only charge it in the car.

    I would hope it isn't, and if that is the case for any of the victims that is a tough thing having my parents having their house burned down 5-6 years ago (the house I grew up in).

    But I know that we have people who see other people's tragedies and see an opportunity to try and cash in via scams.

    I can see a lot of people trying to get pay days off this.

    I don't think he meant that this was an intentional blame of Samsung for a fire that started else wise. However in the article it does say that it was not conclusively determined to be the phone that caused it;

    "It’s still not confirmed whether the new smartphone was truly at the epicenter of this vehicular catastrophe, but it’s definitely giving more than a few Note 7 owners some pause."

    My home too, December 12, 2015. Burned to the ground, lost virtually everything. We managed to recover some non-flammable items (jewelry, kitchen utensils, bake pans and such, hard drive from our home computer, etc.) but minimal in the grand scheme.

    [​IMG]

    Exterior and interior walls are still standing because the entire structure to the roof line was cement block, however the full pitched roof was wood, and the attic floor was the original flat roof covered in tar pitch. Once that pitch caught fire it was essentially an oil fire. It burned for almost 5 hours.

    You really think in today's world someone wouldn't?......I wanna live where ever it is you do since apparently everyone is honest as can be lol. I'm not saying for sure every case is a fraud but to say there aren't people trying to exploit this trying to cash in on millions is bonkers.

    Unfortunately there are opportunists in every society and the lure of larger compensation is too hard for some to resist, even the most honest in other regards. The entitlement mentality feeds into this as well. During a bad economy the best people will sometimes revert to doing things they would otherwise never consider. Sometimes it's simply to survive. Also sometimes people just get caught up in the moment. Looting is a prime example.

    What part of MI? I'm in West and have to always tell myself that 99% of the people here are in their job solely for a paycheck. They don't care about the job or knowledge of that job. So when the first reports came out about it being a 3rd party charger that's all the further research they did.

    So someone's house burns down and your immediate reaction is "they must be trying to scam their insurance!" Someone's vehicle goes up in flames..."look at them trying to cash in!" Really??? I'm glad I don't share your world views.

    Maybe we missed the part where I said "I'm not saying for sure every case is a fraud" You're making it seem like it would be impossible that someone is crazy enough to try and do fraud. I'm just simply pointing out that it's not such a crazy idea. Like FoxKat said it could be the desperate parent trying to better their family's life, or the actual piece of trash just doing trash things. I like that you would rather see the honest person, but you have to also acknowledge it could very well be the opposite.

    My point is: assuming someone is doing something shady with no proof is just irresponsible. Why even bring up that kind of talk when nothing is pointing to it?
