BP Claims News
We are hearing that a lot of people in the Fishing Industry are being pressured to take BP Claims Quick Pays, DO NOT TAKE THEM. We have been hearing that the GCCF has been threatening investigations from several of you today, and some of you are actually being investigated by Guide Post. Do not be threatened by their coercive tactics. the BP Settlement is coming and it is our belief that the GCCF is mounting one last charge to save BP money, by trying to get you all to accept low ball offers. This is par for the course, but we haven`t seen it at this rate for some time.
BP Claims and Seafood Harvesters
Without a doubt one of the most affected groups, that should have had BP Claims being paid from the beginning is this group. Interim claims should have been coming out of the GCCF instead of them trying to starve you out with BP Claims Quick Pays, we are hearing horror stories today over the 1-800-BP-Claim lines today. We have been advocating for people in the Seafood Industry for some time now, and our phone line is literally lighting up. We are hearing that they are telling you all, your records are inaccurate, that you didn`t really fish those dates, that you weren`t trying hard enough.
BP Claims Help
If you need help with the GCCF we can help you. We have people that are willing to fight for you in our network, not just Attorneys and Consultants that will help you with your claims, but lobbyists, congressmen, and other folks who wield some influence around here.

We are still fighting for people, especially Fishermen who were starved out and forced to take Quick Pays.
BP Claims Settlement
Many people in the Seafood Industry did not even file BP Claims as they waited to see what was going to happen, and we are happy to help them start putting together their claims for the Settlement. For many this is just what they were waiting for. If your claim has been denied, still sitting at the GCCF, or even if you have taken a final we can help you.The BP Claims Settlement process is about to hit high gear. If we can help you put together your BP Claims for Settlement, we are happy to assist you. BP Claims consultants charge just 15% of what is collected if you need the help of an Attorney they will charge you from 20-25%.
BP Claims and Seafood Harvesters
We have been hearing form a large number of Seafood Harvesters that took Quick Pays for their BP Claims, many of you were told it was an Interim payment when you were met at the dock by members of the GCCF. As we have been writing about this over the last few days, we have been hearing from many of you, and it seems that a pattern is developing, you were often met at your docks, and many of you were told the Quick Pays were Interim payments.
It almost seems the GCCF was targeting you all, because they knew that your BP Claims would eventually have the most value. Even if you were not targeted in such a manner, it is obvious that they did target Seafood Harvesters, crabbers, shrimpers, oystermen, and fishermen, when it came time dole out the Quick Pays, preying on the people that were most affected by the Oil Spill.
BP Claims Interims turned to Quick Pays (a Little GCCF History Lesson)
If you all remember November 2010 when Mr. Feinberg took over we were all expecting people that were hurt by the Spill to start getting Interim BP Claims. What really happened was that they had another agenda and that was to get people to take BP Claims Quick Pays as the program was quickly rolled out by mid-December 2010, and NO or very few Interim Claims were being paid.
We did not even hear of an Interim Claim getting paid until mid April, and even after that they were few and far between. What does that mean, that means they had to have the Quick Pay Apparatus in play before Mr.Feinberg even took over the GCCF, they just didn`t tell us that part. Putting a BP Claims Quick Pay system in place takes more then a month, at least as far as I can tell, by judging the History that we can now look at called the BP Claims Process.
So all that being said from November through April, and even long after that, that is 6 months plus people were either starved out or forced to take Quick Pays and that NEEDS to be addressed in the BP Settlement. It wasn`t till early February 2011 that Feinberg couldn`t call himself independent anymore, it took a Judges Order to get him to stop, at the very least anyone who took Quick Pays during the time Feinberg was calling himself independent deserves a second shot. Over 200,000 people and businesses took Quick Pays, if the BP Claims process was processing Interim Claims as they promised this would not have happened.
They pulled a fast one on all of us, they promised Interim Claims and gave us Quick Pays, and it is my strong belief backed up by their own actions this was deliberate. This needs to be handled within the terms of the BP Settlement, or it needs to be handled by The Court.
BP Claims Settlement and what to do next
If you have been impacted in such a manner we want to hear from you, we can`t do anything to help you if we don`t know who you are. We are Advocating that the members that are making up the BP Settlement include your claims into the settlement, especially the BP Claims Quick Pays from Seafood Harvesters. The BP Claims process was created with a clear bias to saving BP money and that needs to be handled now.
