Re: Is It Fraud to Receive Money for a Repair and Not Have the Repair Done
the only concern is: is there a loan on the vehicle? If so, the lender generally requires the borrower to have the car fixed. It is still not illegal to not get it fixed but it be cause for the insurance company to call for the loan to be paid off since their collateral is now worth less than what is owed.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
