hi, can anyone advise me please, in feb this year i got a call from RIGHTDEAL INSURANCE, the guy i spoke to asked if i wanted contents insurance, i told him i had recieved a quote from barclays already and was thinking of going with them as they were reasonable, the guy assured me that he could do me a better deal especially as they were offering 3 months free if i took policy out with him, he then went through usual questions, items of value, how many computers in the house etc, i then told him i had young children, so he said, (and this is exactly his words) 'If you have children then you would definately want accidental damage cover to cover the items they use such as computers, camera,etc,' i totally agreed with him and told him that my son carries his xbox 360 from one room to the other, he said that the cover he could give me would cover all that and used the example of (his exact words again) 'if your child was to come downstairs holding his xbox and he dropped it down the stairs then it would be covered.' He then gave me a quote of £11.00 per months plus first 3 months free. I thought it sounded quite good so i confirmed the agreement giving my bank details for direct debit, 1st payment was due in may 09. A few days later recieved the policy from PAYMENTSHIELD INSURANCE which is who he said i would be covered with, i opened the envelope, quickly glanced at it obviously knowing it was for my contents insurance as it was written in big letters on top and then i tucked it in a drawer happy that i could go to it if i ever needed to make a claim. its now been 9 months and iv been paying the amount every month, then a month ago my son was running down the stairs with his PSP in his hand and slipped, his psp fell all the way down stairs and broke, my first instinct was obviously to make sure my son was ok and then i laughed and said ' cor at least we have got cover so i can get u a new one dont worry, i laughed because i remembered the guy saying about my kids dropping things down the stairs and now it had happened. I pulled out my insurance papers, phone in hand to call the claim number and then.....OH MY GOD...WE ARE NOT COVERED FOR ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE!!!! the policy says in small writing standard contents cover and accidental damage not covered, I then noticed that my name was not even on the policy but the policy was in my husbands name only. I could not understand this because it was me who took the policy out, not my husband. I called them up to find out wot the hell was going on but they refused to speak to me because the policy was not in my name, oh gawd this was a joke, I then had to wait for my husband to get home to call them and authorise them to speak to me lol. Wot a farce, anyway eventually the man from Paymentshield advised me that i was obviously given incorrect information as it would have cost more than 11 per month if id had accidental cover, he told me i needed to complain to RIGHTDEAL INSURANCE as they were the ones who made the mistakes. he gave me the number to call them. well iv been trying to ring every few days and no one answers the phone and iv sent email asking for them to call but heard nothing, i called PAYMENTSHIELD again and they said theres nothing they can do. What a nightmare, iv been paying and still am paying for insurance that i didnt want, my only interest was in accidental cover, not just cover for subsidence and flooding. anyone got any advice please, im not sure if theres a law on misselling an offer like i was. I havnt cancelled the insurance yet because i worry that if i did i might not get any help. thanx in advance for any help guys x

This is going to be a difficult one for you to resolve.

 

You claim that the person from RIGHTDEAL told you that the policy included accidental cover (and I'm stating facts here and NOT calling you a liar), if the person from RIGHTDEAL denies that (which I suspect they will) then it's your word against theirs and knowing who to believe is impossible.

 

The only real indisputable fact is that for 9 months you have been aware of what you were covered for (OK I know you didn't check or read the policy you were sent, but in the eyes of the law you received it therefore it's reasonable to expect that you read it and checked it), because of this I really doubt that you will get anywhere, but don't let that stop you from kicking up a fuss and complaining.

 

The best you can hope for is a goodwill payment from RIGHTDEAL, if they don't offer anything I really don't see you have any other argument.

Not much hope here; onus is on you to check documentation. Surely the name 'RIGHTDEAL' is enough to put most people off; sounds well dodgy. Sorry don't mean to be harsh !

lol, thats ok thanks for your replies guys, i know im an idiot for not checking the policy details properly, its one of those mindless things that us women do sometimes, especially when youve got kids running round, i know i am gonna have a job getting anywhere, im just glad that it wasnt something huge that broke like my huge wide screen tv, i was under the impresssion all these months that my prized possessions were covered. I did however find the name of the person who did the policy coz Paymentshield had his details on their screen, and they gave it to me haha, not sure if they sposed to but o well , plus they advised me that most insurance companies record calls, yipeeeeeeee i bloody hope so coz then theres no way they can deny wot i was promised, i can remember the call like it was yesterday which is why i remembered all the stuff about things being dropped down the stairs. Over the last few months there has been many occasions where something in my home has nearly been dropped or broken and iv often said thank god we are covered, hardly something i would say if i didnt think i was. Anyway fingers crossed the call was recorded coz if it was then im gonna make sure i fight for a years free cover with all the trimmings lol they owe it to me lol .wish me luck thanx again x

id also like to know why they did policy in my husbands name, i didnt think they could do that without his permission coz its a legal document and would mean that they had set up a direct debit in his name also without his consent. we have joint bank account which is how it went through, my husband didnt even know id taken out the policy till he got home later, surely that is enough to prove how crap they were with my policy eh guys x

That's your best (and probably only) hope. If they have recorded the call and if they come clean about having the recording and what it confirms was said then you have a real case, other than that I'd be tempted to kick up a real fuss with the manager at RIGHTDEAL.

 

It's probably worth bearing in mind that you probably wont be the only person this salesman has lied to, maybe other customers have experienced the same and have also complained.

 

It's really easy to say with hindsight that you should have checked your policy, it's not until something like this happens that you realise how important it is to do that, so don't feel to bad about it.

 

Good luck

You may, I say may, have possible grounds to argue that the policy should be declared 'void ab initio' ie void at inception and demand all your premiums back.

 

In order to do this you would need to show that the contract was flawed, your argument would be that it was you who set the policy up, you who answered all the questions, and you who requested it. As it transpires, you now note that the policy to which you have been making payments was NOT in your name, so the insurers never spoke with the policyholder, nor did the policyholder answer any of the questions posed at the proposal stage, accordingly therefore the contract wasn't made between the two parties to it.

 

If the value of the premiums paid is less than the value of the damaged item you may want to save this line of attack until after you receive a refusal to pay out.

brilliant advice, thanx mossy, well u are absolutely right coz as i said, my hubby wasnt even aware of the policy until he came home after work so he didnt agree to anything at all, obviously he was fine with me taking out the policy once i told him about it but i cant believe they could just put it in his name without his consent, even more funny is he had to give authorisation for them to speak to me when i phoned paymentshield coz of data protection lol. The only reason RIGHTDEAL had my husbands name was because i was asked the names and ages of people living in my home. Good job they didnt do it in my little boys name lol, so kind of you to give advice, thanx mossy x iv sent e-mail again been waiting 4 weeks for answers so far, they are unreachable by phone, wot a coincidence lol.
