It's harder to fake damage than people think.

A young woman had had a telling off from the police apparently tried to inconvenience them by reporting she'd been kidnapped and assaulted and here was her clothing to prove it. She didn't seem to realise that if she couldn't manually cause the damage she claimed (pulling off well stitched on buttons and tearing a dress from the hem) it wouldn't happen in an assault either. The use of scissors to start the tear and to snip off the buttons was quite obvious, as was the lack of the sort of tears that occur in reality.
