Early March 2022
I received a check from the insurance company for the cost of the repairs that were going to take place.
If that check does not go to the parts/repairs, it is insurance fraud.
So yeah, you owe him the money for the parts. And you need to return the money to the InsCo for the labor not performed.
Would seem it better they had canceled/returned the parts.
I would ask InsCo how to proceed (do they want money back, or is it settled as is with them?).
