They have lied to us every step of the way.

We received a quote for insurance along with the billing amount etc. Paid the first bill and THEN they sent us a letter stating:

Based on the following information found on your claims report your six month premium has been revised.

07-28-2005 (driver name my husband) Accident

We were told over the phone that if the 'accident' was shown to be a NOT AT FAULT situation our rates would go back to what we were originally quoted. We were both confused - we had no accident. Neither one of us recalled that he had been hit in a parking lot (not at fault - he was parked in a very normal in the lines fashion - someone tapped it and ran; we never even filed a claim! Just got an idea of what it might cost to repair and took care of it on our own.) We were told they could fix this within 24-48 hours once we gave them that information.

We were told at first we could prove it with a DMV report - which we paid 7.00 for an gave them.

Then we were told oh no, it has to be a letter of experience from our former insurance company. I bristled at that, but after being reassured on the phone YET AGAIN that this would get our premium back to what it was, I went along.

Now we just got off the phone with Latoya Taylor - a customer service rep who would NOT put me through to a supervisor as I repeatedly asker to do - suddenly said no, our premium would stay the same higher rate due to the 'risk'.

WHAT RISK? We were NOT at fault, there was NO accident - someone clipped our bumper in the parking lot and we never even filed a CLAIM! We are no more a 'risk' than we were when we originally signed up for the policy!


Because of NOTHING that was of our own doing, they raised our rate by 200.00 a year. And lied the entire time.

We will be looking to insure elsewhere - and I am demanding a refund for the time wasted on a lie.

#1 Consumer Comment

I was victimized the same way.

AUTHOR: Brian - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, November 07, 2008
I was told that I had a claim on my record that was affecting my increased rate. I had left my car in a parking lot and had my back windshield smashed. I had heard that car insurance companies replace windshield, well - dumbass me, not rear windshield. After I was told that a $500 deductible would be necessary, I told em- never mind. Why should I be penalized for making a phone call. I replaced the window myself, of course after 2 hurricanes blew by soaking my car- God knows I was not gonna call them asking about water damage to my car. GEICO has given me different answers every time I call them and they neglect to follow up on anything. They really don't like it when you are a long time customer and get an online quote with them for about $250 less a month with the same info (only tickets) entered. They tried to raise my rate when I moved another $200 when I had already checked that the rates should be lower. Wow- I can't believe they get away with what they do- freakin criminals. Just glad I finally moved on. But I still get pissed every time I see a GEICO commercial, that I practically paid for with my elevated long time customer rates, so they can give better quotes to new VICTIMS.
