SCAM WARNING : related to accident

So I'm sure most of you have read about my accident on Tuesday. Well I have a massive story you want to read.

Bodyshop: Stoney Creek Collision
"Guy": Unnamed for now? (Black BMW X5)

I'm going to leave the doctor out of this. I don't know what the towing company was called.

Here we go:

I get rear ended on Barton st in Hamilton and the police tell us to go to the station and file a report. So the girl drives off and all I can get is the license plate. Then some guy in an X5 pulls up and starts saying he's going to help me out. He calls a tow truck for me and says hes bringing it to the police station for pictures. Then he drives me and my bud there too. We do the police report and the girl showed up too. We get out and he says we're going to a physio guy to get checked out. It was 8:00 and the office closed at 7:30 or something. So we get checked, get some free ice packs and the guy decides he's getting a rental brought to me. This happened, I did paperwork after finding it to look pretty legit. They wanted a credit card number and I said no way. They explained it was for if I got any tickets so I gave them a number that was maxed out so they couldn't do anything anyway.

Now the guy got us appointments for today but me and my bud canceled because we started getting suspicious. Guess who calls a few minutes after we cancel? The GUY. He asks why we canceled and said we have to go again. I bullshitted and said I had too much shit to do. He then went on about how good of a job the shop is going to fix the car blah blah. I finished the conversation and after hanging up wondering...how did this guy even get my number?

Confusing but I'm going to wrap up. Fast forward to today and I have discovered the same car that hit me is at the same shop, and she's booked at the physio place. My car was damaged after the accident so they must of smashed it up to get more money.

Now, I went to the shop today to pick the car up and the owner wouldn't back down when i told him it was coming home with me and going to another shop. So he says "Okay fine, i'll get your bill ready". I was confused and asked why. They want to charge me $1200 for tow and storage for two days. While it was sitting at the side of the shop...and the tow was probably 15 km.

So the insurance company knows all of this and is moving in tomorrow morning to take the car back. I don't know whats going to happen with the money though. It's bullshit.

So call me stupid for trusting the guy but keep in mind. I'm 20, first accident. I was in shock that my pride and joy was ruined and took anything I could get. I'm glad I caught on now atleast.

The police know who he is. He's actually banned from the station and they don't have enough on him to do anything about it.

STAY AWAY FROM (placeholder lol) AND STONEY CREEK COLLISION

I'm not some young guy trying to cause problems, this is serious.

I'll keep updating as I hear information.

Is it okay for me to post names or can I get into some sort of trouble?

In a nutshell, this guy is called a chaser. He tracks or plans crashes, takes advantage of the victims while they're vulnerable and gets to hook all his buddies and family up. The tow truck driver most likely took the car somewhere to beat up while I was in the physio place. I took the rental back, canceled the physio so now all I have left is to get the car back.
