My brother works with Citizens Advice Bureau and was telling me about some really appalling things Unum have done to clients with CFS. He thinks all insurance companies are rip-off merchants now though.
I have first hand experience with the insurance underworld. They are truely unbelievalbe and bold with the types of lies and harassment they get away with. WHat can we expect when they write the lawas I guess...

thanks for posting this though. It gives me hope they may some day get slapped on the wrist again.
