Thats not even a good thing to kid about. That very idea is why a lot of
insurance companies are pulling out of the Gulf Coast. Not just because of
damages from Katrina and Rita, but because of all of the
criminal sons of bitches that try to get their comfort systems replaced by
the insurance companies where they are either just plain worn out, or are
8-10years old and have never been serviced. After Katrina I got over 200
calls from folks that wanted to know how much is a new air conditioner so
their insurance company can buy them a new one. Out of all of those calls, I
only actually condemned one because a 2 foot diameter pine tree fell on it.
The rest were a simple cleaning, service, and *maybe*
a simple repair to get
them running again for less than the customers insurance deductable.
Because of all that crap, my homeowners insurance has more than doubled.
Thanks but no thanks... I believe that if I caught you kicking the drain
valve off a water heater, then I would have to kick your ass then turn you
in for fraud.
