The following post was send in to me by a reader of this blog, I would like to ask more people to tell their story just like this person is doing.
I’m not quite sure what’s going on with the GCCF final payment, the full final review final payments, or why they are taking so long. I do know, however, that as soon as the quick pay option became available, gccf began denying emergency advance payments for no reason, I believe, in an attempt to coerce people into filing for the quick pay option.
GCCF Final Payments of what ?
I, however, recieved an emergency advance payment for more than $5,000 and am waiting for my GCCF final payments or will file lawsuit if they deny my claim. The emergency advance payment was a 6 month loss payment, and they are paying 3-5 years for future damages for full review final claims.
I check the statistics on their site daily, and I saw when they started denying claims. For instance, when I was paid in October, they only had 45 denied claims. Now it is about 50,000 denied claims, yet all over the place they say how easy it is to sign off your rights and put $5,000 in your pocket.
GCCF Final Payments in 90 days ?
People who were denied need to sue. People who were paid emergency advance payments need to be patient. They told me it was within 90 days that I would hear something about my final review and I filed in November. Now they are saying its 90 days from the time they started processing in December, NOT when I filed.
They are playing upon people’s ignorance and impatience and for the poor fools who are taking the bait, may God be with them. With the economy already on the verge of collapse when the oil spill happened, now the Gulf Coast won’t recover even longer.
The only reason people still came here despite their empty bank accounts was for the beautiful beaches and the seafood. With the entire line of gulf coast states depending on the beaches for tourism, which IS our economy, we have nothing now and won’t for years to come.
And it is not just the coastline that dwindled when this happened…it effects reached north as far as we could see. People in Alabama would make the drive to the Florida coast for work because the money was good enough and they had no work in AL. Now they have no work here or there. This is just wretched and BP and GCCF need to quit swindling people out of their well deserved money. We are all capable of working, but can’t because of THEM!
