One of my favorite reality shows turns out to be completely fake.  Operation Repo is show on TruTV (formerly CourTV) where a team of reposession agents go around repossessing vehicles for finance companies.  Everytime I watch the show, one of the guys (Matt) is always roughing someone and I always wonder how they get away with it.. i know now, it's all FAKE!  If the show was real, Matt would violate the Collateral Recovery Act of the State of California as repossesion agents are not allowed to rough people up.   Not sure I can watch the show anymore now that I know it's fake.  

Here is the entry for Operation Repo @ Wikipedia:

Operation Repo is a faux reality show where a fictional repossession team from the San Fernando Valley in California enact the repossession of vehicles for finance companies.

Some of the actions shown violate the Collateral Recovery Act of the State of California and are only for dramatic purposes. Repossession agents are prohibited from breaching the peace (ie: fighting and wresting with debtors). However, some of the actors on the team were repossession agents in real life.[1]

Although as a channel, truTV is described as presenting "Reality TV", Operation Repo consists of scripted reenactments where the team is often confronted by actors portraying debtors with prop weapons, prop drugs, and naked women; and with actors portraying police officers with prop weapons and prop squad cars.

Operation Repo began in April 2008, and is based on the Spanish language program, Operacion Repo shown on Telemundo, which began in November 2006.

TruTV has a forum just for Operation Repo and there seems to be a few dissappointed folks there that also learned that the show is fake.  http://boards.trutv.com/forumdisplay.php?f=41

It's so bad it's good!

Anonymous on Wed, 10/06/2010 - 00:40

I had my suspicions that this show was fake, but the couple of episodes I saw the other day really confirmed it, here's what happened in them:
One of them involved them having a midget in the back of the truck for a sort of 'experience day', they get to their first repo and things kick off. Fights break out and the midget gets involved, then Matt starts pushing the midget around!
The next was a dude and his brother in a wheelchair, only it was a big scam and when the fight breaks out the dude in the wheel chair gets up after saying he lost a leg in Iraq!
Then my personal faavourite, they are after a Prius, they find it via a tracker in the middle of no where. They find the car and its 4 occupants who happen to be LARPERs! So funny seeing a Wizard, a Princess and 2 Knights doing all this medieval shit in the woods!
So bad that its actually good!

So i just watched the episode that the spanish dude with the bandanna on his head gets beat up by a group of bikers! Well I gotta tell you i always thought this show was real until this episode... So one of the biker guys punch the spanish dude in the face and another guy runs for a camera and breaks it! Now this is when i came to realize how fake this show is to the point i had to google it.. The guy clearly throws the fakest punch i've ever seen on tv to the point i had to put it on slow motion to really accept the fact How fake the punch was! Then the icing on the cake is the spanish dudes scratches were so fake and his acting was so horrible looking back into the situation that i refuse to watch this show ever again!!!!! All i need is for the show "Scrappers" to be fake as well and my life is over lmao!!!!

I was a recovery agent for

Anonymous on Thu, 09/16/2010 - 03:54

I was a recovery agent for about 5 years. I loved it, I still ride around with buddies I know, I still have my truck with an illusion lift.... Look plain and simple, they are not real recovery agents. The first thing you do when u pull up too a car aside from checking a vin number is HOOK the thing. Then you get out and explain your self if any one is around, and offer a "trade" Keys for personal belongings. If things get out of hand u jump in the truck and take off. Whole process should take any where from 5 to 10 minutes. I got one too many speeding tickets in my truck and my insurance dropped. It's a pretty expensive career to keep up but the pay out can be exelent.

The best part is the camera men

Anonymous on Wed, 08/25/2010 - 12:31

Every episode at least once someone asks about the cameras. Once Matt says "there for our protection" then everything is okay and the people forget about them.(be real) Then the car owners are shooting at Matt or chasing him down the road with a tire iron. Yet the camera men are standing there and everyone is okay with it. None of it make any sense unless you realize the whole thing is scripted.

Also, how come you never see the yard. At least in "All Worked-up" you see half of the action going on at the office. In Operation Repo sometimes you will see Lou in an empty room - where do put all of the cars? Oh wait - its all fake.

it is re-enacted

Anonymous on Fri, 10/29/2010 - 13:22

there's a blurb at the start of the show that says these are re-enactments of real events. i dont know if the actual repo team are also actors but the things that go down are def not real.

Tazered repo

Anonymous on Mon, 08/23/2010 - 16:07

Today I saw the episode where Matt and Froy were to repo a pt cruiser from an old drunk guy. Now if you pay real attention first look at the angle of the camera as Matt gets tazered. when the nodes leave the gun they pass by Matt and then fall to the ground. Matt is laying there and nothing is on his shirt. when the camera comes back to Matt you can see the two nodes attached to his shirt yet a moment before they weren't there.
At one point it wasn't a bad show but as most say Sonya was to say the least an eye sore
I don't plan on watching this show anymore as it's painfully obvious that it's fake.

i agree

Anonymous on Mon, 08/16/2010 - 12:33

Well if it was real, wouldn't they call the big fat ass blonde chick fat and stupid and all that shit? yeah they would. I know I would. And they'd call Lou a dumb ass spic and the bald guy a short stupid faggot. Its not real people, that is.

faking like he can't hear and is in post traumatic stress
it is so fake I am ashamed that I ever started watching this stupid show.Sonia is such an ugly woman I mean REALLY unattractive, The only one who is near believable is Lou and even he is a bad actor.

..at least get some people to be in it who aren't bulldog ugly.

Seriously, I watched this a few times when I thought it was real because of the situations, but if they're just faking it, I sure as hell won't keep watching for the personalities.

Ugh. Put a sack on that.

One of TVs biggest hoaxes!

Anonymous on Thu, 07/22/2010 - 09:14

Do these people ever actually repo a vehicle for real? This show is scripted more than wrestling. This show airs on Tru Tv but there is absolutely nothing true about it. Biggest waste of air time I have ever seen.

I knew from watching like two

Anonymous on Mon, 08/09/2010 - 16:33

I knew from watching like two episodes that this show was fake. I mean seriously who's going to repo a car from a pregnant chick in labor on the way to the hospital. They could at least make the damn show believable. It's as bad as Criss Angel and Lost Tapes. Only a retard would believe this crap!

canadian tv

Anonymous on Wed, 07/21/2010 - 18:33

Funny that Canadian tv presents it as an "unscripted reality show" it takes 2 secs to see the reality of it...fake!

The one that blew me away is the one where they got the "little person" who is a fan to go on a repo job, in no time (this little guy) was on top of a mouthy owner..it was pathetic!!! now I've seen him on other repo jobs as well!!!!

Anonymous on Tue, 07/20/2010 - 11:52

what's so sad is that "All Worked Up" may not be fake. Operation Repo has the disclaimer stating that it is fake. Also, I like 15 mins from Lizard Lick. An acquaintance was on the show, and she acted exactly the same way on that show as she does in real life. People really are that dumb. And I don't think they have to get people's permission when the people are filmed on the repo people's property. I have been told that you can videotape whatever you want as long as you are on your property or public property. The inside of the repo's truck would also be considered the repo man's property.

Wikipedia is not a good site for info. ANYONE can change those entried, which does not make it a valid site to obtain info.
