1st for Women / insurance claim poor service

1 South Africa Review updated:

WE HAD A BURGLARY ON THE 26 OCTOBER 2008, WAS A SUNDAY AFTERNOON AROUND 4PM. WE DID THE USUAL THINGS CALLED IN THE SECURITY COMPANY, WHO CALLED IN THE COPS, TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT...MY NIGHTMARE STARTED WHEN WE SUBMITTED OUR INSURANCE CLAIM.THE NEXT DAY.. I WAITED 3 DAYS NO FEEDBACK, CALLED THE CONSULTANT HANDLING CLAIM, HE HAD NOT AT THAT STAGE CALLED THE POLICE STATION OR THE SECURITY COMPANY FOR THE CASE NO OR ADT SECURITY FOR ANY RELEVENT INFORMATION. EVENTUALLY I GOT COPY OF MISSING ITEMS CASE NOS. ALL THAT WAS NEEDED & FAXED & EMAILED, DID THE NECESSARY.STILL NO FEED BACK FROM 1ST FOR WOMEN NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE. AFTER A NUMBER OF PHONECALLS ALL FROM MY SIDE, 15 DAYS AFTER THE ROBERRY, AN ACCESSOR WAS SENT TO MY HOME, HE SPENT TWO HALF HRS. TAPING STATEMENT COLECTING ORIGINAL SLIPS, BOXES & STUFF CHECKING ALARM SYSTEMS, ANYWAY ITS ALWAYS SOME EXCUSE NOT TO PAY MY CLAIM, EVERYTIME I VERIFY ONE QUESTION THEN ITS ANOTHER.TODAY 19 NOV.2008 NOW THEY REQUIRE A PANEL LOG REPORT FROM SECURITY COMP.(1STFOR WOMEN UR SERVICE IS NOTHING LIKE YOUR ADVERTS). I WONDER WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PAYING INSURANCE ???

    now you are in the worldwide "club" that has insider knowledge of the insurance industry.
    all they DO is embezzle our money and when you live in an area that MANDATES car insurance, it's a simple FACT.
    they do NOTHING...and we must pay for this under the rule of "law."

    I was actually considering going with them, but after reading all these reviews, customers service sounds rude and negligent. So I would rather not...

    FIRST FOR WOMEN IS A BUNCH OF LIARS, THEY HAVE NOT RESPECT FOR PRIVACY, THEY SNEAK INTO MY HOUSE ANANOUNCED FOUND MY MOM WHO DOESNT SPEAK ENGLIGH AND INTERVIEWED HER IN ENGLISH...AND THEY WILL FORCED MY BROTHER TO AGREE WITH WHAT THEY WERE SAYING.

    THEY LIED AND SAID THEY HAVE DOCUMENTS THAT MY BROTHER WAS DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE BUT THEY FAIL TO PRODUCE THOSE DOCUMENTS TO ME.

    FFW IS THE WORST INSUARANCE I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH, STAY AWAY FROM THEM. 951225767

    worst mistake. had two claims in June. Had to repeatedly call their office for them to complete their job.
    one of the claims wasnt settled. I called again, its September, according to their systems its settled, but they havent done the job.
    tried to get through to the complaints department, sent from pillar to post.
    get put through to Thobile in customer care, that convinced me repeatedly she can help, only to be told she cannot help.
    what a bunch of useless people.
