 I have heard through the grapevine that an ‘Independent Insurance Broker’ DB - who has been plying his trade inland - Alhaurin el Grande, Coin and possibly other areas - has been found to be selling policies, taking the cash, and not paying it to the insurance cos… So although the client has been given some ‘paperwork’ and they think they are covered (car, home, health ins etc.) they are in fact not as the premium has not been received by the Insurers.

We are trying to establish the extent of this - as one person who went to claim discovered to their cost they were not covered - and it is getting likely this person has done this to others and is about to do a runner.

Please note - I am not able to name this person - as the libel laws in Spain are very clear - Unless I have personal experience/proof of my claims, or the person has been found guilty in court -then they can only be named by their initials.

Doesn’t seem fair, but if you have concerns please PM me.


(Update on above - the said person is issuing a 'cover note', but then not paying the insurance co he says he is representing.  He has been building up a client base for at least a year or two in the area and this is the first sign things are not right. We are sure he will 'disappear' like many do.. but in the meantime he has  your money!  Friends of friends are taking this to the police as it is at least fraud!)
