Grant at the Claremont branch is a super guy! Even though he was essentially just the 'spotter' the whole palava took out a huge slice of his day filling in statements.

Happy ending to this one.  :2thumbs: :2thumbs:

Took me three hours and loads of paperwork to get them out the police station. Tomorrow I will go over them with a magnifier and play test them to see if I should continue with the insurance claim...

Bloody Brilliant. Well done to Cash Converters Claremont for being alert!

I have had this happen to me a number of times in the past and that feeling doesn't just go away. That fact that the guy was actually caught should be of some solace.

Perhaps look at fitting something like this ....
