IF they hate you enough, IF they can find out who your lender is, IF the lender wants to repo because of that fact, The ins. co. is supposed to notify the lender anyway if you let the policy lapse....

File a report with the local police agency and report it to your insurance company.

If you know the insurance company you can report it directly to them. If not, contact the state company who handles insurance such as the Georgia Department of Insurance. They will be able to help you or to put you into contact with the proper personnel.

What kind of eligibility are you asking about and report to whom?

Why in the world would anyone want to pay that much money for an insurance policy if they did not know the person? Life insurance is expensive.

In most states a repossessor must notify the police when they repossess a car. Contact the police to file the report and they will know if it was properly repossessed.

RepossessionCall your local dispatching service for your law enforcement. The Repo man is required to report the repo immediately to them. You could also call the bank or company that has financed your loan. In Illinois, we are required to report repossessions immediately to the police. In some cities, the police want to know BEFORE we repossess. So when you call your local P.D. to report your car stolen, they can let you know if the car has been repossessed.

I do know someone in the insurance business. The lady that lives across the street sells insurance for State Farm.

If you know the name of the insurance company, contact them. If you don't, there's no way of knowing. Generally, you would have had to sign the application so presumably you would already know if someone had taken out a life insurance policy on you.

Contact your local PD. Repo men have to report your car when it is hooked to the tow truck. So there is no mistaken auto thefts

I know someone currently in that situation. If the insured person is at fault (states so on police report) you should do your best to obtain a police report and get his insurance information. You or your attorney should contact his insurance company to file a claim. This is the stage my friend is at. I will let you know how it turns out. In her situation she was able to obtain an arrest report as it was the hit and run of a parked car by a drunk driver. The driver was arrested that evening and several other cars on the block were damaged.

You will need to make a report to both insurance companies. Even though you are not at fault your insurance company will still want to know. Unless the other party takes the blame right away and tells there insurance company that it was there fault then you do not need to tell your insurance. But I always recommend that you always talk to your insurance company about the accident.

In the US, at least, you can be sued for just about anything. I'm uncertain as to exactly how you could not know someone was on your insurance policy, though.

User Avatar

Absolutely ! If you know information about a crime - you can report it without identifying yourself.

User Avatar

Filing a false police report is a criminal offense. If you know of someone who has done this, you should notify a police agency, preferably the one where the false report was filed.

User Avatar

If you know the information, or as much information as you can get, about the other driver, furnish that to the police and/or your insurance carrier when you file your own report.

This really depends on the type of coverage you have with your insurance company. I know that you have to report everyone that lives in the house. If he lives with you and takes you car and you didnt report it then they will not pay for any of the damages occurred. I myself am covered when i use someone elses car weather they have insurance or not. But again you have to call to find out.

If you are not the administrator, executor, or an heir to the will your will not know and frankly it is not anyone elses business about the life insurance or financial matters of the estate.

Unless someone faked your signatures and did not need a medical exam it is highly unlikely that you would not know if someone can take out a Life Insurance policy on you. There must be an insurable interest when a life insurance is taken out and the insured must know unless that person is a minor and the parents took it out.

Yes I believe you can report credit card fraud if you know someone who has someone elses credit card, if let's say one of your friends or family member got there credit card stolen and you also know the person who stole the credit card you can report a credit card fraud or you can just let your friend or family member report fraud on there credit card, I hope this helps :).

Fill out accident report with police. The person's insurance will pay for repairs.

I wanted to add to my original question...Our car was repossessed by the finance company because they said they found out someone else was using the car because of car payments being sent from a different address. AND, they stated that they wanted to see the condition of the car. I thought a car would only be repossessed if you were late on payments? I have never heard of this, so I don't know what is going on.
