*UPDATE EX-employee responds: USAA cuts corners
I recently had a break in, and the thief took jewelry and a Rolex watch my father gave my fiance.
Well,..when I did call USAA, the initial person I spoke to was nice,..then it turned ugly.
During the robbery I had some figurines on a stand that were broken, most were crystal elephants. There were other figurines that were broken as well, more like collector items.
When I told the claims adjuster what items were broken and stolen, she sighed. I can hear her actually sighing as she took the statement.
Now,..the strange part is,..the claims person I gave the statement to, is not the adjuster signed to my claim.
I have yet to actually speak to her, we've only communicated via email.
Well my fiance was getting tired of all the run around that USAA was putting us through. They asked for replacement cost on each item, so I went on the web and found each item and and the replacement cost.
Not only have they not processed the claim, they sent out an investigator!
This man asked me questions that were totally off the wall!
Asking me how many other claims I'd had, where did my father buy the watch, who did I give certain jewelry to.
He also wanted to see the entry point of where the thief broke in, so I showed him, then he wanted to see the jewelry box which was in our bedroom, now..my fiance was asleep in the bedroom and when I told the investigator this, his response was: "I'll just take a quick peek."
I was outraged! He continued to ask me tons of questions, even personal things which I felt had no relevance to the claim.
I asked him was all this necessary and he never responded.
So after he finished his interrogation, he asked me "what have you learned?"
What in the h*ll?? That was just crazy!
Here I was devastated that someone broke into my home,..broke things, took things and upset my entire well being,..and to have an insurance investigator come in and act like you are to blame!!!
USAA has always been good about replacing any piece of jewelry that I've lost, they've been good about replacing things when we've had them damaged by water. Now I have to go through being interrogated by an investigator.
I understand an insurance company making sure claims are legitimate, but this incident took it to a whole new level!
The man was uncaring and very smug, he looked around my house as though I'm not suppose to have nice things, that because of the pricey items that were stolen and broken that we are trying to get over on USAA.
I felt violated again by this man, and no longer trust USAA for any of my insurance needs.
