Gaslighting Pays: SAFECO/PROTECH SCAM

The independent inspector submitted a report to Safeco that was over 23 pages long. They came back with their position that I was only owed $6500 and that I could probably get that money from Protech if I signed a release. No mention of the missing warranties. No mention of the fact that there are code violations that Protech is responsible for creating. No noting of the fact that I […]

Now, I Am Believed

Well, well. As Safeco hired the Independent Inspector, I expect to never see his report. When he presented himself here, he seemed fair and even-handed, I might even say fair-dealing emanated from him. I must be radiating some sort of freneticism because all men wind up talking to my son. I think they hear me, but they talk to him. At first I rather despised this male habit, but once […]

Finally, An Independent Inspector

After six months of wrangling with Safeco Senior Claims Resolution Specialist Kent Stiles,  whom I fired one month ago, enduring his continued attempts to humiliate and abuse me, his attempt to go through the back door of Innovations Properties to get me hooked up with the contractor network that I thought I was already a part of, an independent cost consultant was called in. Stiles did not want him to […]

Protech did everything to make the outside of the building look good, but it is deteriorating before my […]

Is This Fraud, Larceny, or What?

  Just made 63. The struggle is real. Safeco, Liberty Mutual has provided the claim file. I have found $28-30K of discrepancies. Safeco has foisted the burden to the contractor, who was brought into the deal by the Safeco adjuster. I asked the adjuster about the remaining claim funds in October and she refused to answer my question, went incommunicado for two months. When she did surface, it was indirectly, […]

SAFECO INSURANCE BAD FAITH

I have to get this down before memory fails because it seems to me that Safeco Insurance is attempting to cover up their bad faith. After asking my adjuster a question about the funds remaining in my claim and a question about the engineering firm that drew faulty plans, she did not communicate with me for 2.5 months. When I heard from her, indirectly through the temporary housing agency, it […]

The Longest Year

The longest year has actually lasted 18 months and then some. It all started on Earth Day, 2016, when my mom (of blessed memory) laid a tree limb on top of my home. I was sitting in the house, in the bedroom, near Mom’s sewing corner. I heard the limb crack and waited for the whoosh that follows the falling limb when it falls from a height. This time, there […]
