That's a relief. I'm happy she's okay. My father was an alcoholic so I know how tough that situation can be. I wish your friend luck with her new future.

As many of you know, I lost my daughter to a car accident two months ago. On St Patrick's day, I received a call from my 18 year old son that he had been in an accident. He is fine but my faith in humanity has really been put to the test. The woman that blindsided him was quick to convince him that all they needed to do was exchange insurance info.....he called police and they said that was fine as long as both parties agreed, I had a bad feling as soon as he told me this and as it turned out, I was right. He called the insurance compamy with the info she had given him and all of it was bogus. They never heard of her, the name, address, insurance number etc.. were all ficticious. I hope she can live wirh her pitiful self after doing this to a trusting young adult.
Now what? Can you claim the cost of repairs to the car with your own insurance company? How can someone do that? They must have been driving without insurance, and had bogus information.
There were several witnesses, but unfortunately, the liscense plate number that was given to the police, did not match the vehicle description when it was run throught the system. The officer said it was a shame because they could have pursued it with the correct plate number...Did your son happen to take down her plate number? That could be a starting point.
As it stands with us, she will probably just pay for the damage out of her own pocket rather than turn it in to the insurance company. Even though it was not her fault, she is concerned it will be a mark against her if she turns it in.
There are just dishonest people in the world. It is discouraging. I hope your son is ok and doesn't have too much trouble getting it all taken care of.
Aww...Bunny, SO thankful your son is alright. That is foremost. I am really sorry that such a trusting honest young man was "taken" by someone like this. I hope she can sleep at night.

I'm so sorry to hear about all the recent troubles. I do not understand how people can be so self-centered and self-absorbed to think it's okay to do things like that. I firmly have to believe that karma/fate/something of the like will come back around to them.
That's terrible Bunny but glad your son is okay. In our province, police HAVE to be notified if the damage is over $1000 (which isn't much these days). The police kind of fell down on this one if you ask me. That woman will have karma bite her in the a*s. I agree with CA
