What was the name of this scam?

What was the name of that fire-bucket scam?
It's the one where somebody sets fire to your house while their buddies wait around the corner with buckets to put it out.  They either rob the place while they put the fire out or extort you to do so.

Comes up in anime on-and-off, but can't for the life of me remember what it's called ;*)
