Just spoke with Carole on the escalations team, she refused to help, refused to admit fault, and refused to get me to their manager Stuart either. I spoke with another manager yesterday who refused to help even though the payment went through on the wrong day and I had canceled auto pay. They have cause me 70 in overdraft and they refuse to help or even try to stop the payment all cause I didn't screen shot the rep I talked to on their site During the call Carole advised its not in their policy to require that, and even refused a 20 dollar credit for me to put towards the 70 dollars in fees they have caused due to this overdraft. Literally the least they could have done and they refuse.to even try. This is the first issue I've ever had with them and I'm so disappointed.....honestly just sad
They refuse to help after I canceled auto pay, and manager says I have no proof. Which I got successful confirmation that auto pay was canceled and their online rep said they'd make a note I would pay on the 15th. It was all fine. But on 1/12 they auto charged me and over drafted me. Been on hold for 4 hours and I keep getting transferred. Manager.keeps lying. They refuse to.help and wow great insurance but they do not help ever.
We switched to Allstate for car insurance since a friend worked there and assured me they were the best. They were a little more expensive but we felt it was worth it. the following year on renewal our policies were hiked by several hundred dollars and we were told "all companies had to increase their rates this way". We couldn't switch companies again within one year as it raises your rates dramatically, so we stayed and payed. We had invested in a dash camera which turned out great as we were hit by a flying construction level on the highway (no-fault comprehensive) and then a month later rear ended stopping for traffic at a yield sign merging on a bridge. We were told explicitly that our insurance would not be affected because these were clear no fault accidents with video evidence. Our renewal policy jumped 20% higher! No way. I called them and they confirmed MY rates went up because OTHER people damaged my car. The agent was in the process of repeating that ignorant excuse when I was cut off and sent to their survey to tell them if I was helped or not. Goodbye Allstate. They get two stars because they did cover my vehicle both times but maybe it's the dashcam that forced them to help me.
