Then, if possible, turn on your hazard lights and move out of traffic. If someone is hurt, call immediately.
They can help clean up the accident, facilitate the exchange of information between you and any others involved and help set up a tow for your car. If other vehicles were involved in the accident, collect their contact, license and insurance information before anyone leaves the scene. If you feel unsafe doing so, wait for the police to arrive. Do not discuss fault or your insurance coverage. Take photos of the license plates of all involved, any damage to all vehicles, street names, road conditions, other property damage and any injuries if possible.
Get the names and badge numbers of all police at the scene. Your claims adjuster will complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle to determine its fair market value. Upon receipt of your title paperwork, a check for the total loss value — minus your deductible — will be issued to you and, if appropriate, your lien holder.
We pay actual cash value for covered losses, excluding your deductible, up to your policy limit. You may be responsible for any loan balance above that amount. If you receive a legal summons or complaint, let your claims representative know right away. To ensure the best possible legal defense, forward a copy of the summons or complaint — along with any other letters and documents — to your representative.
Because estimating involves judgment, there can be differences of opinion on the scope of work and how much that work should cost. If you have concerns about the estimate we provided, contact your claims representative. To help get you back on the road sooner, our auto rental reimbursement coverage will pay for a rental vehicle while your car is being repaired. No worries. We'll assign your claim to a representative familiar with the claim handling laws and procedures in that state. Then, make sure to protect your home from further damage and keep any damaged property for inspection purposes.
Thanks and let me know what you feel.
Best regards, Angelina 2nd email: Hi, Sounds great to hear from you again. Everything seems fine with me. I would prefer paying one week rent directly to you prior my arrival to secure the place and then i will balance up after my arrival, because my dad would make payment and he wants to ensure that proper arrangement is made now. Regarding payment, a wire transfer into your bank account would work out perfect as it's easier and more reliable. Kindly get back to me with your bank account info to enable my dad make payment immediately such as the bank name, account number and name on account, including your direct cell phone number so i could always contact you.
I have my picture attached to this email so you can get to know what i look like and i would like to see yours too. Best regards, Angelina 3rd email: Hi, I hope all is well? Kindly check your account balance online as soon as you receive this email and advise immediately.
Your photo I. D and proof of address is required to send funds via western union.

Best regards, Angelina 5th email: Hi, I never knew you were out of town. My dad is currently on a business trip out of town and the money is meant for deposit and also for my traveling expenses coming over. If you send funds via bank transfer, i won't receive the money before working days and i might loose my flight which i'm trying to avoid. I am so confused as i don't know what to do at the moment because i assured my agent already that he will receive funds this weekend so fast arrangement can be made for me.
I just searched online using this address address removed for the closest western union outlet around where you can send the money on Sunday. I would appreciate if you can send the money before 10am your time if possible so fast arrangement can be made for me immediately. Thanks so much for your effort and see you soon.
