State with Dating Problems.

, posted: 20-Dec-2007 00:37

My friend had her car insured with state,   she arranged for her payments to happen on X of the month,
but State, kept on taken her money out the day before X. The would push her account into subzero and cause the bank to hit her with a $30 fee.  She would then spent an hour on the phone with state telling them they had mad a mistake and that it won't happen again, but again it happened, so my friend said the f word and cancelled her policy. That was the 29th Nov.

One of the state phone people said they had been having computer problems.

Then today state sent her the letter below,  the records showed she had not paid, (maybe because the policy is cancelled) and that they will attempt to take the money on the 00th January in the year 0000.

I worry she may get a bill from the bank for 2000 years of outstanding fees, silly or what.

The problem isn't so much State as not having even $17 in the bank. Surely she's not fluffing around transferring funds in from other accounts on the due date. A 1996 car is worth so little that maybe a 3rd Party policy would be more appropriate and cheaper.

The money was coming out the day before pay day, the day before the contracted date.  And the stuff about the cars age and value is not important to the issue.
