Additional Notes

Complaint: I added a new car to my insurance and removed an old one. **** ******* told me that I could pay a deposit and break the remaining balance into 2 payments since my policy was covered until 11/2015. I went into the office and paid the deposit. I noticed on 8/26/15 when I checked my PO Box that I had notices of intent to cancel my insurance due to non-payment. I called the office and spoke to *** in finance. She advised me that the balance of adding the new car was added to the 7/30/15 payment and was due on 7/30/15. I questioned how could that be when I did not add the car until 8/1/15. She just kept telling me that I didn't pay the full amount due. She took a message for **** ******* to call me back. **** called me back and repeated what *** told me. I asked him why didn't he tell me that when I came in to make the deposit payment. He said he did not know. I questioned what happened to breaking the payments into 2 payments he said they don't do that. He stated that if I had made a payment on 7/30/15 they would have given me 30 days to pay the remaining balance. I explained to him this is not what I was told. They both kept talking over me every time I tried to explain what I was told and I requested that he(****) allow me to complete my statement. He did slightly. I felt as though he didn't care that I was not told the complete expectation and he offered nothing in resolution to the misinformation I was given. I asked if there was a manager and he stated that he was the manager. I asked if he owned ***** Insurance and he stated that he does. Product_Or_Service: Car Insurance Account_Number: ILPXXXXXXX

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) I want my policy to remain active and the two monthly payments that I was offered to be in effect. I would also like for **** ******* to take responsibility for not giving me full disclosure, instead giving me false information.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/09/01) */ On August 1st, Mr. ******* did indeed amend Ms. ******'s policy to cover her new car. He quoted her an additional charge and she had paid a down payment toward it. However, she had not made her regular monthly payment, due on July 30th. **** was not aware that Ms. ****** regular monthly payment was overdue. The brokers have no direct access to account receivable records. She has made no payment since. We will be happy to reinstate Ms. ****** once she catches up on her payments. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2015/09/01) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) What information someone representing a business has access to is not know by a customer. The resolution I have asked for is what was quoted to me when I agreed to the service, which was to pay the down payment and the balance split into two payments. I am unaware of any insurance who requires a down payment and payment in full 5 days later. I was expecting to pay about $87 at the end of the month. That should be honored. By my calculations that is roughly $115. Final Consumer Response /* (4200, 11, 2015/09/11) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) This is not a resolution. This is just more reasons why my account was handled the way it was. YesYes, I was quoted what it would cost to add my car on more than one occasion because I was told on the first call it would go down the closer I got to the end of the policy due to proration. When I called the last time I asked what I would have pay to swap the vehicles. That's what I paid. All of the details given in this response would have been needed before making a payment. I'm done. I have another policy and will never recommend this company. Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2015/09/11) */ I do apologize for this misunderstanding. When you originally spoke to Mr. ******* on July 8, 2015, he quoted you the DIFFERENCE between your old and new vehicles, and he states that he did not represent it otherwise. On July 8 he quoted an additional proration of $305; the prorated additional premium dropped to $244 by August 1, the date that you officially changed the car. And as I had mentioned previously, **** has no direct access to account receivable records.They are located in a separate office. The best people regarding your monthly payment is ******* or ***. Any other issues regarding your policy: **** or **** Once again: Thank you for your business.
