Do sellers ever intentionally fail inspection?

I have some friends who recently accepted an offer way under listing for their home. Within 24 hours of acceptance, they received a much more generous offer. Now, they intend to simply cross their fingers and hope that the original buyers back out upon inspection, but it got me thinking–

Do some people intentionally attempt to have their home “fail” inspection in these instances? How would one do that? Refuse to let the inspector in? Pop the thermostat off the wall so that it can’t be tested?

In this market, it has to have been done. Has anyone ever seen a seller intentionally try to scare off the buyer during inspection?
