    Default Well I had to get the police out tonight!!

    With reference to this thread..http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=96740

    A young lad bumped my car and busted the front bumper. Cut a long story short him and his mother pleaded for me to let him pay cash and against my better judgement I agreed then I had to struggle to get the cash..

    Well as he dragged his heels I got the cash to late to get the repairs done before the VAT increase and when he was pestering me for the old bumper I asked for the extra cash and never heard from him again.

    Well between selling our house and looking round others and buying one and in the process of moving needless to say I haven't managed to get it in to the garage yet. So about 6:30 tonight a knock at the door and here stands this woman and two hooded youths who proceeded to launch a barrage of abuse at me for not having my car fixed and threatening to smash my car up! I calmly persuaded them to leave and was a bit miffed at the fact my two very young children had been reduced to tears so I thought **** it if my car gets done over and I hadn't rang the police I would have no come back so I calmed the kids down bathed them and then rang the fuzz.

    Now to date I've never had a good experience with the police and I've struggled to even get them to come out to burglaries in the past so I was somewhat surprised at the response tonight. Within 20 mins I got a return call telling me they'd be here about 9pm by 9:30 they where taking a statement and told me what I already knew that I was above reproach on the matter and these lot are bang out of order! They set off to pay them a visit and to tell them never to contact me in any way ever again or face criminal charges.

    How good is that? Credit is due where credit is due. 10 out of 10 in my book on this occasion. I'm well pleased with that.

    Sorry for the long post!
    Ken-tec FTW.

    Good result against pathetic scum
    You did them a favour by not using insurance, and you get this carp.
    No doubt you've worked out for yourself - insurance job or nothing is the only way to go when there's car accidents and "people" involved these days.

    Same as above - well done for keeping your cool... follow link to YouTube you'll have to sign in to see... http://www.youtube.com/verify_age?ne...%3D_3ZtXwYiDHA He tried his best to keep calm, bless him.

    More to the point my main comment is - make sure you get a crime number (always ends in the date you reported it on) and follow it up to see if the officers that called at your house actually spoke face to face with your trick or treaters!!! Not to be devil's advocate, but just for your own peace of mind, make a quick call to confirm they've done what they said they would do...

    Keep safe....

    I'd have said I was going through the insurance until you saw cash up front, then if they don't deliver in this case carry on with the claim.
