Strange email from the Bank?

Post by Taught2BCautious on Wed May 30, 2012 9:13 pm

Hello all,

I received an email from the bank today:

Estimado cliente,

Le informamos que su Seguro de Repatriación que tenía vigente con nosotros hasta el momento, vencerá el próximo 1 de junio de 2012.

Conscientes de la importancia que este seguro tiene para usted, estamos en disposición de ofrecerle un seguro de repatriación más completo.

En el caso de estar interesado en este nuevo seguro, no tiene más que acercarse a alguna de nuestras oficinas donde estaremos encantados de atenderle y ampliarle esta información.

Reciba un cordial saludo.

So has anyone heard of this 'Repatriation Insurance'? I wasn't aware that I had it, so I'm not sure if I need it.

Looking through my recent statements, I don't seem to have been paying anything for it - so is this genuine, or some sort of scam?

Alan.

Looks like they are offering you a new kind of Insurance. Probably something to do with if you have to go back to UK all of a sudden , emergencies etc.. It's definately not compulsory or a scam. Mind you, aren't most Insurnces a scam anyway.

Thanks for that, maybe I read it wrong but I thought they were inviting me to renew something I already had, not offering me something new.

I'm not aware that I have this type of insurance - does anyone else have it?

It definitely uses the word for expire, trying to indicate a previous policy so could be scam or genuine!

Got the same email yesterday. It was something that was provided free when I first opened the Bank Account five years ago. I do not intend to renew it and pay more insurance.

Recieved the same information by letter today, with an english translation, was just what we thought, a sales pitch.

I was just a bit concerned that it might be a case of being charged for something you don't need or want - unless you specifically cancel it.

I had a similar situation a few years ago with breakdown cover from a well known UK Automobile Association, when my partner broke down and needed a new radiator hose fitting to the car, she accepted some kind of a 'free' extended warranty on the repair at the time, but because I failed to notice the small print on the renewal (which was paid by direct debit) I ended up paying £110 a year for this for the next 2 years!
