Allstate Insurance - Scam Artist
Home Owners Insurance
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- I would never allow any of my family to ever have Allstate Insurance !!! reason, my wife and I had Allstate for three of our homes until approximately 6 months after Katrina hit the gulf, I went to the mail box to retrieve our mail and found a letter from the county tax office stating that I did not have enough money in escrow to cover our taxes....well after further investigation I determined that Allstate without notice to me, increased our home owners insurance from $700.00 dollars a year to $2200.00 a year which completely drained our escrow account.
I contacted them on the phone and they very politely informed me that they experience many large losses because of Katrina, so I questioned them about why I would suffer a 300% increase when the last time I checked my home was still located in the center of the state of Indiana. I also questioned why I was never notified about the increase, and their reply was "By law we are not required to notify you of such things" so I immediatley asked if I was required to notify them if I wanted to cancell and they said yes and it must be in writing.
So at this point I scratched on a piece of paper the time, date and my personal information and the statement to cancell my policy immediately. Because of this I will never and I mean NEVER have Allstate again. P.S. I did NOT receive a refund either.
