Nassau, Bahamas: Just when we thought the stormy seas had settled at the tumultuous ColinaImperial Insurance company complaints have come into Bahamas Press that the company owned by attorney and media boss, Emmanuel Alexiou, is now putting the squeeze on the ‘Precious Pearls’ of our nation.
“I have two insurance policies at ColinaImperial for decades,” said an 80-year-old Bahamas Press reader. “I’ve been a customer of both Colina and Imperial Life before they joined up. About three years ago this company called me up and told me that one my insurance policy with them, that I pay religiously every month, was lapsed years ago and they were cutting me off.
“I told them to show me proof as I know I have always paid my polices and on time, they offered no solution and said they are cutting off my policy. So all those years of money went down the drain. I went to person after person there to try to fix the problem and I was passed on from department to department and came out with nothing. I cried as I have had that policy so long and I realize these people were robbing me!”
The elderly citizen said some of the people at ColinaImperial were helpful but some seemed frustrated and were quite rude. The citizen demanded to speak to an executive but the request was denied.
She was recently called again by ColinaImperial, this time an inquiry is being made on the elderly citizen’s other current policy.
“I don’t know what they trying to do to me,” the elderly citizen continued. “Every month my daughter drives me up that hill to pay when I go to pay my utilities. Now they saying again I am lapsed and they don’t want to explain. It’s the same person who called me before. I told her I am calling my lawyer. I am not going to let this insurance company rob me again, cause I want my children to have money to bury me when the Lord calls me home,” She told Bahamas Press.
Unfortunately that is not the only senior citizen with complaints about that insurance mogul. Bahamas Press has received several similar complaints from elder policyholders. One such similar incident involved a government worker who was about to retire but was told that his policy had lapsed despite that payment for his insurance is directly paid from his bank account. Who is protecting the ELDERLY FROM THIS WICKED PLOT BY COLINA?
“Some man called my house talking fool ’bout he was dong an insurance survey or some nonsense,” said a former female policyholder of ColinaImperial. “I gave him a belly full before he could get off the phone. I don’t know who he is but I feel it was one of them Colina people trying to finish me off. He wanted to know if I was satisfied with the service at my insurance company. I hope he tell his boss what I say.
“Colina is full of a pack of thieves. I paid my insurance for years. Many many many years and for no reason they cancelled my policy telling me I didn’t pay it for years. I tried everything to make them see my proof and what not and every time I took my receipts to them and was pleading my case, they brush me off and went to their computers for their lying proof and I lost all that money that I paid for all those years. Now I am uninsured and too old to get no insurance,” the former policyholder cried.
Bahamas Press was aware of all the foolishness ColinaImperial was doing – firing countless employees, playing God with people’s mortgages, but never would Bahamas Press have felt that ColinaImperial would have sank so low as to be hustling and robbing the elderly of this nation like street thugs!
Shame on you ColinaImperial, what new depths would you sink to now??
