Sometimes, love hurts so badly that it is worth a little jail time, or worse…
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Or a woman who was possibly scorned. Or a women who found a text message on her boyfriend’s phone and decided that she had been scorned. In any case, this woman decided on the spot that her man was guilty, and took her anger out on his car.
What should be the punishment for this kind of act? The car is likely totaled and if the insurance company gets involved, she could have a number of legal problems in the near future.
The event is likely to cost the boyfriend, one way or the other.
Comprehensive coverage typically includes protection from vandalism, among other things.
Because vandalism may not cause a significant amount of financial damage, it’s possible that your comprehensive deductible is higher than the cost of the damage itself. (For example, if you have a $1,000 deductible and the vandal causes $600 in damage, there’s no need to file a claim.)
Watch the craziness for yourself, below:
DMV.org offers a few tips on how to handle things if your girlfriend does this to you.
1- Document the damages with photos, eye witness information, etc… Compile a complete list of property that was damaged or taken.
2- Call your insurance company as soon as possible. If you have comprehensive car insurance, you should be covered for a theft or vandalism claim. However, there are some items you’ll need in order to file your claim.
Be prepared with the following information for a theft claim:
- The vehicle title.
- Location(s) of all keys to the vehicle before and after the theft.
- Names of all people who have access to the car and the keys.
- A full description of the vehicle, including upgrades and recent maintenance or repairs.
- The list of personal property stolen with the vehicle.
- Contact information for the lease or finance company (if your car is leased or still under lien to a lender).
Be prepared with the following information for a vandalism claim:
- Description and/or pictures of the damage.
- List of personal property that was stolen from the vehicle.
- Contact information for the lender or lease company, if needed.
3- Keep all records and receipts.
Hopefully, this will never happen to you!
