3 Ways Your Auto Insurance Company Is Scamming You

Are you scouting for auto insurance? Be careful and make your decisions prudently, as chances are your Auto Insurance Company is scamming you. Most of us believe that it is only people who scam auto insurance companies, but there have been cases where citizens have been defrauded by these insurance agencies. Protecting yourself from auto insurance scam would save you from higher premiums in the long run. For your sake, we have listed 3 ways your auto insurance company could scam you:

Playing on your ignorance - Most people don’t clearly understand their insurance needs and are also unaware of different products floating around in the market. This ignorance exposes them to scamming by dubious insurance companies and agents. Most insurance companies play on your instinct and coax you to choose a plan with the lowest deductible possible, thus, extracting a much higher premium amount. Also, since the paper work is so cumbersome, many people don’t bother to go through the fine print. This is where insurance companies play it smart. You could end up paying more for a coverage you never sought.

Low Balling - There is a burgeoning segment of insurance agencies, with in-your-face TV and radio advertisements, claiming to offer you the cheapest possible insurance deal. These agencies scam you in the most obvious way; they resort to “Low Balling”. Once you have signed in for their insurance scheme, a letter would follow stating that you were under charged due to a "Company Rate Error". In such a case, you would most often than not, pay-up, as not paying would mean that you lose whatever premium you have already paid.

Coaxing you to pay ‘Cash’ - The greatest tip we can offer is “Do Investigate”. The biggest scamming cases involve fraudulent insurance agencies and agents. Usually, the modus operandi followed by these entities is to hard-sell their schemes to unassuming citizens and coax them to pay the premium in cash. Once they receive the cash, you are left high and dry, without an insurance cover. The loop-hole is that if you procure insurance from an unlicensed agent, then you are not protected.
