  • Inurance fraud from within the company

    $10,000.00Unresolved

    A claims adguster from geico called me to state that I was in an accident in Florida, in a rental and that they have a police report?! I explained2 her i do not live in Florida, have never visited and did not have a rental. She reiterated her so called police report. I immediately asked for a copy of the police report which she refused claiming it was private information. I laughed and asked her how could it be private if i was on it? Shouldnt I have information that you claim I'm apart of? She then asked for my drivers license number which I provided ( silly mistake, never give them any information. Let them tell you about you)She apologized, said she had the wrong person, it was someone with my same name and almost same I. D number? Several months later geico called again, this time i was in an accident in my state. This company either hires liars or scam artist and are unaware of their employee's quota tactics or they are in on this somehow, either way this company is bad. I am currently fighting both claims now as they have added both to my drivers record

  • Phone scam trying to take money, threatening legal action

    $0.00Unresolved

    The message was left on my phone at 3:10pm today while I was working. I picked up the message after work at 5:30pm today, 2-21-17. The message basically did not even address me personally and stated that if I did not call her back today regarding an "ongoing investigation" that I basically waived my right to council and that my file would be submitted "to the state." I attempted to call this office back and a machine picked up which did not identify the office, only asked me to leave my file number (!!!!) and my personal details and someone would get back to me. I can assure you this was completely new information to me. I did a reverse search on the phone number and 28 people before me had gotten this call and identified this woman as someone who called herself Katherine Groves, bothered people from multiple numbers, threatened felony charges on them trying to extort them for money they didn't owe, just words could not speak for what this woman was doing to people. People were getting lawers, blocking numbers, calling the authorities!

888-902-8437 was call back number given by a lady claiming to be "Susan Taylor". Asked for me by name and also had my father's name, and was referring to someone that my father and I have never heard of or met. Gave case# to reference on call back and could not tell me the name of the organization she represents due to people "getting beat up for serving summons". I asked her if she thought it was odd that she was calling from a blocked number and could not provide the name of her employer or details of the summons. She responded, "we're just the summons re-router". SCAM!
