What should I do?
I had the unfortunate 'privelige' of being in a minor accident 2 weeks ago - as you may remember (if you read eseries forums) the front of my car was totalled by a 4WD, and the subsequent impact of her hitting me was enough to push me into a Statesman on the other side. In the accident I got knocked out for around 30 seconds, and there was $7000 worth of damage to my car, yet only one scratch (no i am not kidding) on this womans 4WD's bullbar.
There's no point lying, I was at fault, although the 4WD owner said she was doing 70 in a 50 zone, and this was recorded in her statement given to the police at the scene, however for clarity's sake, yes I did cause the accident.
I'm 17 and this is my first accident ever, Ive held my P's and a perfectly clean record since getting them in May of 03 so that went in my favour when it came time to fine me and decide how many points I lost - $228 and 2 points, much better than a charge for neg. driving.
However, as of late this woman's insurance company (I wont name it) has been calling me on both my home phone and mobile phone at 'odd' hours (i..e anywhere inbtween 9am and 9pm), and stating in no uncertain (or friendly) terms that if I do not 'pay up' within 7 more days, they will 'proceed with legal action against me'. My car is comprehensively insured, so there is no reason why they should be contacting me asking me to pay, as my insurance company told me they would work everything out etc etc. Yet this woman's company is harassing me and continually on my back about this. They caled this morning and I really lost my temper because of it, because it has been going on for almost a week now and I have told them time and again that it will be sorted - still they insist on calling me and leaving messages on my answering machine.
I consider what they are doing to be harassment, and I told them so, to which they replied 'we are protecting our client's interests', but I'm still not happy about the situation. I just want them to leave it alone and sort it out with my insurance company, not through threatening me personally.
So what should/can I do to make them stop?

Reason: fine was actually $228 instead of $428 - typo!
