Alvin Bates Jr. Allstate Insurance Agency Beware of "Bate" and switch tactics.... Bingham Farms Michigan
Beware of his "Bate" and switch tactics. I was an Allstate customer for 7 years. I always paid my bills on time and never had a claim. I moved to another area and wanted an agent closer to where I live. Immediately after switching to the Alvin Bates Jr. Agency my rates went way up. I called and asked why but Alvin couldn't provide a logical explanation. Therefore I cancelled my policy. I got a bill in the mail for the higher rates. I never agreed to pay the higher costs and why I cancelled my service. Anyway I paid what I would have and explained why I was paying short. Then after I recieved a bill from a collection agency. I will be fighting this because it's just not right. You can't bully customers into paying more money just because you want to charge them more. This is a classic case of reverse discrimination. I just wanted to share my experience so other potential customers don't fall in the the "Bate" and switch trap!
