Man Got Caught For Setting His Car On Fire To Claim $20K Insurance To Help His Mum

It is true if you love someone, you will cross each and every limit to make things right. However, Mother-Son’s love is purest and a man proved the fact but his attempts were cruel.

A son set his own car on fire to help his mother reclaim her life savings after she was duped in a Texan romance scam.

Charles Alan Bowden, 43, took his car to a deserted quarry in Central Queensland at the beginning of the year and set it alight.

He was attempting to get a $20,000 insurance payout after his ‘lonely and vulnerable’ mother sent $200,000 to a man she thought she was in a relationship with.

His barrister Scott McLennan told the court his plan was to buy a cheap car and give the rest of his money from the payout to his mother, who was in dire financial stress

He originally lied to police, but later confessed when evidence came to light the car had been started with a key.

Mr McLennan told the court Bowden has suffered from depression for almost a decade and was ashamed of his actions.  Bowden pleaded guilty to torching and attempted fraud.

He was given a suspended sentence of three years and had a conviction recorded.
