Arrow Some Urgent Help Please!

Hi all,

i really require some advice. Ive had an absolute terrible time with my clio. Ok this is what has happened. 2 weeks ago i had my cars oil changed and oil filter. was out driving it on the motorway today and the engine cut out. pulled up and there was some oil under the car. Called the AA and they had a look at it and said that all the oil had leaked out of the car and the engine was seized!! he said i'd need to get a new engine! is that true??? also when he had a look at it he said that it looks like when i got the oil changed the mechanic used the wrong oil filter which caused the oil to leak out!

Now my cars gone and i need a new engine (which he said an 8 valve one would cost around 700!)

im really shocked and dont know what to do. please help someone
