Insurance Company Pays Man's Settlement With $21,000 in Coins

Andres Carrasco reached a settlement with Adriana's Insurance Service, Inc. this past June following a lawsuit he filed in 2012 in which he alleged an employee of the company physically assaulted him. The company paid his settlement with a check but also, his attorney claims, in buckets of change that amount to more than $21,000.

Carrasco's attorney told NBC Los Angeles that eight Adriana's Insurance employees pulled up in a van to his office and unloaded multiple five-gallon buckets full of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Carrasco, 73, had just undergone surgery for a hernia, and was still too weak to lift any of the buckets of change.

"Adriana's Insurance, is this the way you treat everyone?" Carrasco said in a statement. "Why don't you like your clients?"

As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution points out, Adriana's Insurance's Yelp page has been attacked with negative reviews. From one review:

I wish I could've given them NO stars from the way they treated my uncle Andres C. How dare you call yourself a place of business. These people are nothing but money hungry idiots. They care only for money and not any of their customers. My advice, go with someone else. These crooks will get their karma in due time.

"I am disappointed by the way Adriana's treats their customers and the elderly," Carrasco said in his statement. "We might be poor, but we are people too."
