Re: insurance Edward William Marine Services
There were several agencies in the UK that would take premiums and never place them with insurers, back in the 80's & 90's. They would pay a few claims here and there to keep their rep up, but never the huge claims. I had dealings with one on commercial charter insurance, only to find I was operating a charter boat with no insurance for three years. I filed a claim and I know that agent went to jail, but I never got jack.
I can't for the life of me remember the names of those involved. However, whenever I see their adds, there is a little feeling in the back of my head that this is the same scam. No survey needed, prices realistic, but too good to be true, etc.
If I am mistaken, then I sincerely apologize, but I just had to put this in.
