Default I need ideas to break my laptop for insurance fraud

So i bought a $2000 laptop and paid $400 for insurance.

Insurance pretty much covers everything. And after 5 times with issues they will give you full credit toward ANY new laptop.

I want some ideas that would get me a comletly new laptop - i dont want to fry a couple parts and have them replaced. I want them to replace the whole thing.

I dont really want to drop it in water or snap it in two pieces, ebcause what if they dont replace it after i do that several times???

So i want it to get fucked up and completely replaced without doing water or alot of physical damage.

Any ideas?

And i will video tape this shit and put it on youtube.

I need to abuse the insurance i bought and get a new laptop.

That is plain ridiculous to pay $400 first off. Thats 20%!!! no way 20% of your investment, depreciating in value mind you, is worth silly insurance. Your computer is worth $1200 now that you have taken it out the box as well. What a joke.

Thing is its a $2000 laptop.

If i get it replaced 5 times in 3 years. I will get $2000 toward any new laptop they have.

So its a mother fucking good deal.

I can drop it into water if i want and they will replace it no questions asked. I just dont want to do that 5 times

First, you shouldn't post here that you're going to commit fraud...

Inurance covers anything accidental. I dont think cutting wires will seems like and accident.

So this must look like an accident.

Open it up, and unsolder 1 or 2 tiny little resistors. Then, turn it on. Probably short circuit or just stop working. Or, get some very, very fine graphite dust and spray it into the vent holes. Graphite is carbon, and conducts electricity. Short circuits galore. Turn on and hopefully it'll die. Dont use much, and once your finished, use a hair dryer on the coldest setting + fastest wind to blow as much dust out as you can.

Should work...

Or, sabotage the fan. Bend one of the pins for the connector so it wont send power. Then, the cpu will overheat and you get a new computer. Then buy a new cpu and sell.

lmao if you got one of those accidental plans than your set.

My friend works at bestbuy and he told me someone fucking came in with a laptop and you could CLEARLY see the hammer marks on it LMAO and they had to take it.

NOTE there is a difference between warranty and ACCIDENTAL warranty!

So if your 100% sure you have the accidental warranty than just keep dropping it until u get a new one.

If you got it from bestbuy just keep doing this

Don't most computers have a precaution which stops them from turning on or shuts them off immediately if the fan isn't working/heat is too high?

Just shake it really hard. (Joking..or am I?)

Most new ones have anti shock etc.

For the fan idea wire a resistor over the pins of the fan to "sense" the fan is working. Go into bios and turn automatic shutoff for the cpu off. Then, when it reaches ~90C it'll just die. Unscrew, remove resistor, and your done.

Use a heat gun to get past the anti-tamper stickers.

Then use the heat gun to make some capacitors explode.

If you are paying for theft insurance then just send me your address.


Oh yea. Be sure that the laptop is out of production or they will replace it with the same model you have.

I'm curious as to what might happen if you put the battery in the microwave, why don't you let us know.

Default Re: I need ideas to break my laptop for insurance fraud

1. i dont want to do this ASAP, because i just got the laptop and its the hottest one on the market, but i have to start making my record, so in the near future if something is going to come out (a faster/better laptop) i will get it replaced with that one.

2. it is accidental insurance - store replaces it, im not even dealing with the manufacturer.

3. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I PUT IT IN A MICROWAVE - WITHOUT THE BATTERY - i dont want to bust the microwave. this seems like a easy idea and should work. i tried this with a cell phone once - it fucked it up in 2 or 3 seconds. screen, motherboard was OUT. i have never tried this with anything bigger!

ANY people have experience with LARGE ELECTRONICS in the MICROWAVES?

Yea large electronics in the microwave will be fine, just more pops and sizzles, smoke and a terrible smell.

But if its supposed to be accidental you should probably delete this post and make sure theres no trace of you PLANNING to destroy it.

Some other poster said it ahead of me though, if you've gotta make a record just treat it like shit. Throw it around, bring it outside keep smacking it into shit, punch it when it pisses you off. And when its all smashed up and barely working put the final accidental touch on it run it over with your car or slam it in the door, drop it down the stairs, let a dog chew on it, dump water in the vent holes. Lots of possibilities just make sure its "accidental" and take fucking video and don't let the store see it.

You keep asking for ideas on what to do to the computer, and you wont do half the stuff for fagot reasons. Breaking a laptop? Not that hard buddy. Either you're attempting to troll, or you really are that much of an imbecile.

your best bet for widespread, but not obvious damage would probably be to desolder a couple of pins on the motherboard, and then while you've got it apart, smack the hard drive around while it is running.

Or just drop it... people drop them all the time... and that's probably covered.

Spill soda on it
Drop it down a flight of steps
Step on it while it's closed (breaking the screen)
"Overheat" it (be creative with this one)
Leave it out in the rain overnight

Even if they do give you $2000 towards any new one, won't it be worth the same value as your current one? If you want cash, this is not the way to get it. An Ebay scam sounds better, unless you plan on taking parts out of the laptop, selling the parts, then getting the new laptop. If your plan is to get a better one with the $2000, well, better laptops cost more money. You'd be better off returning it. You would still have to pay more $$$ to get a better model, and besides, why the fuck would you damage a $2000 laptop, are you fucking crazy?

You could order broken laptops off ebay of the same model and switch out the broken parts, and switch the serial number stickers. Then you get an older working laptop for the price of a broken one and a brand new to replace your old one. Sell the fixed laptop starting at ~$900 on ebay, repeat 5x. You'd probably make at least $1k per laptop on ebay, thats $5000 plus the nicest $2k laptop on the market in a couple years.

That sounds a little too good to be true though, and I'm pretty stoned. Let me know if there are any gaping holes in the plan.

OMG I CANT BELIEVE I DIDNT THINK OF THIS SHIT BEFORE! WOW.

NOW THE QUESTION IS.... HOW CAN THEY VERIFY THAT IT WAS MY LAPTOP?

because im looking at it and it does have a huge sticker (looks like a special one where you cant peel off) but thats not the problem, because i can just replace the whole bottom cover.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? WHAT OTHER STICKERS COULD CONTAIN THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THE LAPTOP.

im sure that pretty much every part will have some sort of its own serial number, but not related to the laptop itself.

+ this is a brand new model, so im thinking it will eb hard to find a broken one. BUT THIS IDEA IS THE BEST SHIT EVER.

They won't launch an investigation when they fix your laptop.
