InsuranceComparisons.org is a website which provides its visitors with the opportunity to seek out new auto insurance quotes, which they claim can result in quotes as low as $9 a week.
In order to receive your new insurance quotes, you must first provide your zip code. Then you will brought to a personal form which you must fill out in full before you can be provided with your new insurance quotes.
This form asks basic questions about your care, such as the make, model, and year, as well as the current condition of the care, the mileage of the car, whether it is owned or leased, and whether the car has a working security system.
The form then asks a series of questions regarding the current insurance coverage that you have, and the type of insurance coverage you are hoping to get. This includes questions about current premiums.
Finally, the form asks personal questions about you, including your age, occupation, gender, etc. It also asks questions regarding certain circumstances for which some insurance companies provide extra discounts.
When you have completed your form and submit all your information, you are giving InsuranceComparisons.org permission to release your information to up to 8 different local insurance companies, as well as permission for these companies to contact you.
Submitting your form also gives InsuranceComparisons.org permission to email you information on reminders and special promotions, as well as giving the insurance companies the opportunity to pull consumer reports on you to verify your credit score.
Shut off the DANNED RED BLINKING LITE from you ad !!!!!!!
It is so annoying I would NEVER associate with this company !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is just plain false advertising, plain and simple. New Rules? What new rules? There is NOTHING on this website about "New rules in my area" What a joke.
This outfit couldn't be anything but a legal con playing people for fools. Just look at their atrocious and ridiculously obnoxious ad on Yahoo News.
got comparisons and found I got better rates contacting insurance companies direct
I wanted to get some quotes to compare to my current policy rates, but after beginning to fill in their form (I finished 2 pages of I don't know how many) I felt it was becoming too intrusive so I just closed my browser. I never clicked on a submit button so they technically collect your information without your expressed permission.
They don't disclose on the first two pages of their form that they intend to release your information to WAY more than just 8 insurance companies instead of just giving your quotes over the Internet. In my opinion, by not completely filling out their form, I did NOT give them permission to release any of my information to anyone. I must have received at least a dozen calls within two days and at least that many emails as well.
Further, I don't believe they care who they release information to. I got a bogus "phishing" email from "Paypal Australia" that I attribute to my disclosing my email address on their website. The email contained an invoice for $89.20 and instructions to click on the link within the invoice and log into my "Paypal" account if I wanted to dispute the charge. Big Red Flag! Of course, had I been stupid enough to follow their instructions my real Paypal account would have been emptied within minutes.
My advise - avoid this website at all costs. I intend to file a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission (ftc.gov).
In the beginning, I want to shop for a insurance at my computer by getting quotes online, but after I fill in my info, I got many insurance salesman calls. Fortunately, most of the agents are good, polite, and
never call again when I said I already got a lower insurance quote. But 1 insurance broker called "sunset plaza in west hollywood, ca" is the worst, they keep calling and quote me a low rate, but they did not mention that they will charge a broker fee of $250, until they charge your credit card.
comparisions.org, please don't include that insurance broker as one of your clients.
Why can't a company give insurance quotes without sending my private information to many different hungry salesmen? Can't I be trusted to research and purchase on my own?
A brokering company learning that little trick would be the leader in the insurance field! They can make far more money selling insurance than getting a few bucks selling your information.
