There's just a limit to how much one is willing to invest in a minor incident. It was aggravating to be scammed by a deadbeat but it wasn't a life changing event.

If you'd like to pursue it perhaps I can send you the material.
Unfortunately you are the one who needed to file the report. It seems it would be worth spending the 15 minutes to do so. Hopefully she won't hit you again. That would be the true sense of irony.

What sort of report would you recommend that I file and who should I send it to? I strongly suspect the police would say that they've already done their job by filing an accident report and that they're not going to get involved in a private insurance dispute.

In any event, I don't see why I should have to invest more time in this matter. It's done as far as I'm concerned.

If you'd like to pursue it on behalf of the public at large be my guest.

She gave false information. That's a crime. Call the non-emergency number of your local PD. They will arrange a time convenient to meet with you. Should take about five minutes.

Sounds to me as if Arjay took proactive and reasonable steps. At some point, it's simply time to move on and take care of life's other callings.

I think you'd have to show they knew it was false, which always gives some wiggle room to people who are out to beat the system. "Oh, I just moved." "I had no idea the insurance had expired - my brother said he paid it." Etc., etc., etc.

Way too complicated for me to get into over $500. Most of us accept that there are certain hassles in life and that sometimes a deadbeat will take advantage of you. You take reasonable steps to deal with it and then move on.

It's not worth obsessing over the details in my opinion.

Wow. You're kind of a know it all with a real angry tone, aren't you?

Thanks, but I have it handled and for the record, none of your "direction" was correct.

I'm glad I could provide you the service and using this forum for getting that pound of flesh to relieve some of your daily anger...but you can keep that

Best of luck for happier times in the New Year.
