Insurance companies and appraisers sometimes scam their customers to make more money. Here’s a story about how my homeowner’s insurance premium got raised without my consent.
I’ve always trusted my insurance company, which I’ll call TRICKY DICK, to do the right thing. After all, I’ve been a client of theirs for 22 years. They’ve benefited from my growth in assets and I now have auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, valuable personal property insurance and an umbrella policy with them. Furthermore, I’ve got a relatively large chunk of change in CDs deposited with them as well.
I had a unwelcomed change on my credit card the other day and had to call Tricky Dick to cancel my existing card on file and add a new one. Imagine my surprise when looking over my previous statement that they were billing me 45% more a month in premiums!
What the hell, I thought to myself. Clearly there must be a mistake. Oh how wrong I was.
