Dear Sir / Madam, We have been the end of a theft last year of our vehicle (a car before the law, but in reality a motorcycle with two wheels and one rear) and this notifiable and notified the insurer. The insurer, however, repeatedly called remains new. Unrest invent and eventually refuse to proceed with payment. Time after time, we can refute these fabrications but they do not pay, and the insurer's the thing down with it.
