CLAIM 1:

Process Options:

Inform the customer that we’ve confirmed the box would weigh almost 600 pounds, and since we’ve confirmed this is a fraudulent claim we will be contacting the State Insurance Department and filing charges against him.

Explain to the customer that the carton, as described, would weigh approximately 600 pounds, making it impossible for the mover’s to handle such a box, and request additional feedback from him.

Inform the customer we can pay him for 500 cd’s since this would constitute a more realistic and manageable weight.

Suggest to customer that we want to place a carton weighing 600 pounds in his living room and if he can move it out into the street without breaking, we will pay him the $7,500 being claimed.

Provide the corporate client contact with a “heads up” on this questionable claim.

Search data base to check for any prior claims that this customer may have filed.
