John i did content insurance with Halifax. My phone fell in the kitchen and screen was broken. I posted to them to repair or replace.
Later they sent phone back to me and said it was hit by sharl object so they won't pay. Worse is, they said is fraud and also closed my account.
I was really not happy

Hello, following our telephone call I would suggest you chase the Ombudsman for a response as soon as possibble.

As also mentioned you may talk court action against the company, and to do this, what you need to do is write them a formal “Letter Before Action”. In this letter you will need to state the amount you are seeking to recover and the reasons why. You will also need to give them a deadline to raise the payment by, usually it is 14 days in which to receive payment.

If payment is not received within 14 days, then you will need to issue a claim against them in the small claims court. You can do this by visiting this site https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim

Or you can do it by post by using form N1 which you can find here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n1-claim-form-cpr-part-7 and posting it to:

County Court Money Claims Centre

PO Box 527

Salford

Greater Manchester

M5 0BY

I attach a template letter you can use, you will need to edit it.

I hope this helps. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.
