Before starting on this week’s money-saving subject, I wanted to make you aware of this scam going on of which all shoppers need to be aware. Cashiers in various stores are putting in “cash back” options onto receipts even when the customer has not asked for cash back. Sometimes they conveniently neglect to give you a receipt, and other times they give it to you assuming you won’t check it. And, sadly, many people do not check their receipts. The cashier does not give the customer the cash and either manages to pocket it, or slip it to the next customer who happens to be an accomplice. So please be diligent to check your receipts before ever leaving the register. If there is a problem, have them call a manager up immediately. They may blame it on faulty equipment and correct it, but the manager needs to be aware of it so they can take appropriate action with that cashier.
Public Insurance Adjusters
I had the pleasure this week of meeting with a lady I met via a social networking site who can help save people a considerable amount of money. Linda is a Public Insurance Adjuster who has saved her clients $87,337.44 so far! I was amazed by some of the things I learned in our short meeting. If you have homeowners insurance or renter’s insurance you can file an insurance claim on the following:
Water Heater Leaks
Air Conditioning Leaks
Car Hitting House
Many times insurance companies pay far less than they are required to pay. Even if you have filed a claim and received monies, you can re-open the claim and get additional monies to which you may be entitled. And Linda offers a free consultation.
If you check out Linda’s website, you’ll see that claims made without an adjuster were paid out in the amount of $2,029. Those same claims made with an adjuster were paid a total of $17,187. (per OPPAGA analysis)
If you have had an insurance issue that you would like Linda to check into, please contact her at 1-888-724-7224. Linda is licensed in the states of FL, NC, SC, GA and LA. You can also view her websites here and here.
