<<So in the end, it wasn't worth it. After the initial phone call I called her back, and at the advice of my insurance company we just waited to see if anything happened. The woman wrote me a rather incoherent letter that seemed to ask for money, I responded with a polite "no" in writing, and sent copies of it all to my insurer. Nothing else happened. My insurer counted it as a claim for $0.

IF she had continued harrassing me, I would have taken legal steps against her. However, I think she went to bother someone else.


The loss control specialist at the utility where I used to work called these episodes "hold ups." Specious or exagerated claims that people hoped to collect money for.
