Chicago Tow Truck Scammers Hold Vehicles Hostage for Thousands of Dollars

According to Chicago Police, this predatory towing operation run by gangs has struck again. Tow truck scam artists preying on Chicago drivers will show up at the scene of a crash, just like they did when one of Anthony Walters' drivers got into a car crash. Walters told CBS that one of his drivers hit an overpass, and suddenly Jon Twist, who owns TMT Towing, showed up offering a tow for $450. Twist is now demanding more than $15,000, holding the truck hostage until he gets at least $10,000. Twist was arrested for a similar incident in April, alongside Angel Cammacho.

Keep yourself safe from these scam artists. Police say a legitimate tow truck company will never just show up to a scene of an accident.
