Living on the third coast of America, the Gulf of Mexico
shoreline of Texas to the uninitiated. It is a great idea if you
own a home to have flood insurance. This is controlled for
whatever stupid reason by the good ole U.S. Gov'mnt. They
send out an invoice once a year, shabbily printed on newsprint.
It is easy to think it is a scam being run out of someone's
garage. With this in mind I was thinking exactly that when I
received a letter purportedly from the flood insurance folks.
It looked like a form letter that was copied over and over. It
stated that unless I sent them all kinds of private information
they would tack on an additional $250. to the premium. Now
if you comply and send them all the information they request
they will give you the privilege of only adding $25. to your bill.
It was that last part that got me thinking this is stooped enough
to be real and not a scam. So I called my insurance agent who
also happens to be a good friend for the last 35 years. He was
shaking his head when he explained to me it was indeed a valid
letter from the flood insurance chuckleheads. I informed him I
was not going to give them all the things they asked for such as
where you bank or where your kids go to school or how many
cars do you have and proof of insurance. My man informed me
to just send a copy of my drivers license as proof of residency.
So if you get flood insurance each year and get one of these
letters check it out. Could save you $250. I should of known
it was the government the word "received" is misspelled all
through out the letter. Enough of that, crank it up.
