Cancelled Progressive Auto Insurance because I found a better rate, they said they would not "match" it. I then got a bill in the mail for $90.00. I called them and asked "why" are you billing me for insurance I cancelled and never even had since I cancelled??? I told them this is fraudulent.

After months, I get a bill in the mail from a collections agency for the $90.00!!!!

Told the collection agency I cancelled with them and they are trying to collect on something I did not have! They asked me to provide proof!!!! I said I am calling you with it now to tell you I CANCELLED!!!!

What a bunch of BS! There was NO contract! Anyone has the right to shop for better rates!

What a bunch of frauds!

When an attorney files a class action lawsuit against them for this type of behavior I want to be part of it because it has ruined my credit rating!

DON'T GET BURNED!

They sent me too collections too. According to their letter my coverage period was ending and so I shopped around found a better rate and cancelled.

What's they do ? Tred to bill me again when I had NOT renewed then sent me to collections.

Call them and they have no integrity. Horrible insurance company!

Same here. $426 holding me to a one sided agreement that I never made.

Can they send me proof of the original agreement?

No! The only thing that they can do is is say that since I made a payment I agreed.

My Brother and I had Progressive for a bit until they took my rent money from me before my payment was due. I called and asked for it back and they told me they couldn't (better yet wouldn't) and there was nothing they could do.

I went and found a better policy, and they're charging me an extra month when I paid in September and switched in October

you have the right to shop for cheaper insurance, but it must be the same insurance. If you buy a bag of Doritos from 7-11 you will pay 1.49, but for that same size bag of Doritos you will pay .89 cents at Walmart.

Walmart will match 7-11 (convenient store), but the convenient store will never match Walmart.

So, you MUST be purchasing the same coverage (for a better rate) to have everything close properly.

if you had expensive rates for liability but "switch" to a company that can provide full coverage for less than what you were paying for liability, that can result in a balance. you must make sure the policy is effectively cancelled.

it's your responsibility!

also, I can call and pretend i'm you to request for the policy to be cancelled. My boyfriend, not with progressive, was cancelled because another man called in requesting for his own policy to be cancelled and they applied the cancellation to my boyfriend, the wrong party.

call the collection agency, they don't just collect but assist in fixing balances that are not owed with proper documentation and a good attitude from you.

HAHAHA! I am reading your comments and this is the reason why you make my job entertaining!

I work for Progressive. I know exactly why you still owe money after a cancel or why your son was added to your policy after an accident but yet you go on here to complain about it without calling Progressive to find true resolution. We are not a bad company. Far from.

It's people like you who find fault in little things who make the name seem horrible. I challenge you to call back and get the REAL answer as to why you still owe money or why your son was added!

Every insurance company is heavily regulated by your states board of insurance so what we do is FAR from fraudulent. You just can't see past your rose colored glasses for the actual, business, truth!

Hello, my name is Freddie. I was hoping if you wouldn’t mind helping me with information to become apart this class a.

Or just help me period.

I’m like you in many ways; I work extremely hard to maintain a great credit score and this is completely unfair. Keeping this short, thanks in advance!
