Complaint Review: Geico insurance
Geico insurance Bait and switch! Internet
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Geico bait and switch
*Author of original report: Received refund!
I filled out the form on thier website. I then called the number 800 947 2886. Spoke to a rep. She asked me a few questions,then gave me a quote of around $400.00. She then asked for my CC. I gave it to her. Within 1 minute the 6 moth policy jumped up to $5'75.00 I'm starting to get angry, but cose to take the hit.
2 days later, I recieved an email infoming me that some new info came up and my rate was going up another$185.00. I immedeatly called them and told the rep that I wanted to cancel my policy, which hadn't started yet. Thank God!They tried to talk me tnto staying with them. I said: Not a chance in hell. As I am writing this, I am waiting for a $675.00 refund I will probabley never see. At least for a while anyways.
I spoke with my current insurance company about this, They told me they have heard the exact same things that happened to me, happen to other people. They mentioned Progressive insurance, using the same practices. Beware of those colorful TV commercials.It's beem my experience that all they want is your money!Please be careful and good luck!!!!!!
