Several Bolts Of Lightning.

During a wild and violent thunderstorm on saturday night a giant wooden statue of Jesus Christ erected in the grounds of the local church was struck by several bolts of lightning, catching fire and burning to the ground. All that remained were small pieces of charred timber mixed with black and grey ash. This much beloved giant wooden statue of Jesus Christ is fully paid for and insured by private donations and the church itself.

When it came time to claim the incident on insurance the company denied liability claiming the incident was an act of god and refused to pay any cost towards a replacement statue even though there were no eye witnesses, photos, camera footage or any other proof to justify denial of payment. What's ironic is that one fictional character can be blamed for destroying another fictional characters statue.

Absolutely. Had to deal with insurance agents a couple of times and get money from them is always hard. I actually like used car salesmen and politicians better than them.

Is the insurance going to pay for Rockhampton?

Re: Yellow Box I THINK this is a power box for people to plug their power tools when they repair their boat. There were quite a few of them at different intervals.

Making an insurance claim can be quite complicated. I know many companies out there will give you promises that they can deal with your claims hassle free but be aware it's never so easy.

I think it quite bizarre that these companies accept your payments but then find some loophole to get out of paying. You wonder if they wouldn't be better off puttign the insurance policy into a savings account ... hang on did I just say give the banks more money??
