I would not hold your breath waiting for any answers.

This should obviously have been posted on the forum for "Please help me defraud my insurance company .com"

I don't think you will get any answers from this forum maybe try another one.

What you are suggesting is not legal and the truthful answer is we cannot help anyone commit a crime or fraud.

The insurance company may well demand to see the computer and test it for themselves, they are not idiots and any damage deliberalty caused, will be found and you will lose your laptop and not recieve a penny back.

You may also be put on a register (which all insurance companies can check), this can make it very difficult (and more expensive) to get insurance in the future:

This can include Car insurance.

Wise words from Terry Brown and,as per Watchdog last night,all queries,not just claims,are logged on the register against your name.
