Really? I've caught an episode or two of Operation Repo, how did you know it was fake?
At the beginning of Operation Repo, words appear on the screen that say it is a reinactment or dramatization of actual events.

I know a lot of the call in radio shows use hired actors. I have a friend that has played a caller on some Man Cow radio show in the midwest.

Operation Repo is really bad, and just the way the people they repo behave is enough to tell anyone that.

I figured most of the so called bully issue's were just some buddies looking to make some cash and get on TV!

I wish they had the decency to put that it was a really bad reinactment, lol

Seriously, I have seen some of the people who's vehicles are getting "repoed" on other shows before, such as "Scare Tactics", etc. I only watch Operation Repo on accident or if it is on in the background while I am doing something else and am too lazy to look for the remote...lol

I knew parts were fake but I still like it!

Everybody likes the concept of a "bully beatdown", eh?

Absolutely! That must be why the Casey bully slam went viral.
