SAFECO Corp Complaint - Auto insurance a license to steal
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- In the state of Minnesota there is a law that requires drivers to have auto insurance. While having auto insurance is a good idea it gives the auto insurance companies the power to extort money. I recently bought an auto insurance policyfrom Safeco because they quoted a low rate. Shortly after I paid in full for six months of coverage Safeco "discovered" what it said was an at fault accident on my driving record. For that Safeco was going to charge me another $100. Then Safco found another reason to double my rates.
All payments to Safeco must be made with an automatic withdrawal from your bank account. I don't like to do business that way and tried to stop the automatic withdrawal from my bank account. I could not get in touch with a human being when I tried to talk with Safeco about it. To stop the automatic withdrawal I put a stop payment on any withdrawals by Safeco from my account. This caused my insurance to be cancelled. Now after a full payment for six months of coverage, at the originally quoted price, but only having coverage for three months Safeco sent me a bill for $25!
Rather I owning Safeco $25 it is Safeco that owes me money. Safeco cancelled my insurance after three months when I had paid for six months. Safeco owes me for the three months I paid for but Safeco has decided not to provide coverage for. Will I ever get a refund from Safeco? I doubt it.
