I've barely had my HTC One V phone for a full two months. It was stolen while riding the CTA one night. I reported it to the police and took my police report back to the store where I bought it.

Imagine my shock when I was told by Asurion, the insurance company, that I must now pay them, $115 to get my $300 phone back!!! What the hell is the "$5 handset insurance" for every month? I was stunned to see how they can get away with this. I will complain about this until the cows come home.

At the end of the conversation with the so-called insurance company, there was a survey. They asked if I'd recommend Cricket or their company . . . NEVAH!!! I can't believe one of the many Consumer Reporters on TV in Chicago haven't picked up this story on how the  insurance company is ripping off consumers.

I have 60 days to come up with the $115 to get my phone back. It's out and out blackmail and I will do my best to let the world know what a ripoff this is and that it needs to stop. I am in the process of raising the money to get my phone back, but I'm also going shopping for another company but this time, I'll check the insurance and returns!
