On Tuesday April 6, 2021 I received a phone call from a Farmer's claims adjuster in Oklahoma City telling me Allstate has filed a claim against a now cancelled Farmer's policy claiming my 2018 pickup was involved in an accident on April 1st. The name of the person who was supposed to be driving my truck is someone I have never heard of. And the company who owns the other vehicle seems to be based solely in Houston, Texas. Problem is I have not been in Houston for almost a year and on April 1st my truck never left my garage in Temple, Texas. I have tried contacting Allstate about this and keep getting the head in the sand routine, the "I know nothing" response. This is at least insurance fraud and perhaps identity theft as well. Perhaps my questions will be answered after the Texas Department on Insurance acts on the complaint filed against Allstate.
I have been with All state quite a few years, they have always handled my account with knowledge and have always been patient with me, they have answered my questions anytime that I called them . I usually speak to Leslie at the Poteat agency in Charlotte! I enjoy having Leslie assist me.Shes a very capable and sweet lady. !
The customer service representative Ms. Angelica Yanez, was rude, aggressive, argumentative and went out of her way and her job description to intentionally try to add more tension and complications to the initial problem I called about. She tried lecturing me on her training class experience at Allstate. When I would not give a reaction she got frustrated and began insisting I give her a reason why I felt my car should have aftermarket parts. Regardless of the fact I called bcuz I stated I didn't want aftermarket parts on car due to depreciation concerns. She went on discrediting my reason and began over talking me. When I asked to speak to her supervisor, she said "No! You can't speak to my supervisor and hung up on me. It should be known that you are not in good hands with Allstate. Actually some of the worst customer care in the industry. The adjuster, Eric H. Dale sent me an email stating, "Mr. X, I have investigated your claim and Allstate. We use aftermarket parts and will be putting aftermarket parts on your car"???? No offers for other alternatives, no customer edicatesy, just rude and demanding. Telling you that you have no control over what's being done to your property, despite the fact it's your property. I would not recommend Allstate to anyone if they expect to be well taken care of.
