Lifestyle Journal Complaint - Low Insurance Rates Info Ripoff

Review by jr6553 on 2011-02-20
Round and round we go. Lifestyle Journal gives insurancecomparisons.org as a reference for a detailed article on obtaing much lower auto insurance, but when you go there they then refer you to quotesusinsuranceonline.com. There you are asked a very through questionaire of a lot of personal information, plus Vehicles owned, various insurance coverage question as to the type of coverage, mileage, vehicle use, present coverage, name, address, phone numbers, email adress, present vehicle expiration date, basically a whole lot of information. You then click on submit. Next comes a listing of Insurance companies in which to receive quotes from, in my case five companies. You then click of "get qoute" from your choice. You then are directed to that companies website. The kicker to me is they ask the same information you previously took 10 minutes filling out. I wondered to myself where did all the other information go. Before entering any information I clicked on "Talk live to a representative". Upon connection I preceeded to ask why did I have to reenter a my information again. He replied that he had none of my information, and if I wanted a quote he needed me to enter it, and that all info was held in strict confidentiaity. I complained about entering everything twice and he repeated he had no previously entered information. I say thanks for his time but I was not going to enter information again and ended call. I then proceeded to backtrack to find someplace to express my displeasure and concerns. Back to quotes. usinsuranceonline.com I clicked on "contact us" filled out name email and brief questions I had, clicked submit and was shown a page that said something like due to the number of messages they receive is too great to respond to eash. So I backtracked to insurancecomparisons.org, clickes on contact us, saw the same questions as the last website. I repeated my concerns. I am thinking that what just happened was the run a round and was duped into giving personal information to an ananamous total waste of time infoercial. Which by the was was on Facebook. In my opinion, apeesonal info ripoff, but that's what, sadly to say is becoming a common incurrance.

Any website that asks for personal information for quotes or product information is just going to use it to try and sell you something and jam up your e-mail with spam.
