Customer Says Showroom Gave Fake Car Insurance

Lancey Gonsalves, general manager, HR, Trident Hyundai claimed Harish had bought insurance on his own. "Harish did not pay the insurance money to us," Gonsalves said. "He opted to get insurance from a third party. He did not even pay the third party the full amount. Our team leader Chandrakanth is not involved in this case." When asked about the cover note given to Harish at the time of the delivery which states "We attached Insurance Certificate" and also included a reminder to renew the insurance, Gonsalves said, "The letter was merely to remind the customer to renew insurance after a year. We have not issued the insurance certificate to him." Chandrakanth said, "We are not tied up with Tata AIG insurance from our showroom, what we have given is not an insurance copy, it is only a 'thank care' letter. Harish has not paid us the insurance amount." But he failed to explain why they issued a 'thank care' letter when the customer has not paid them the insurance amount. Harish claims that when he checked with Tata AIG, he was told that the signature on the insurance cover note was by an agent identified as Pradeep. When BM contacted Pradeep, he said, "Harish took the insurance from a third party and not through me." When BM visited Tata AIG insurance with the cover note to verify the document first-hand, the manager of the four-wheeler insurance section, Umesha M, said that the cover note was a fake.

The Most Expensive Auto Insurance Rates in Central Massachusetts

According to experts within the automotive insurance industry in Central Massachusetts, high traffic areas, driving records within each city, population density, how many claims are filed throughout the year, and crime, are just a few of the factors that are taken into account when determining insurance pricing for a city. I think that even things like the effects of law enforcement could be taken into account, said Ken Eddy, the Vice President of Sales at Insurance Marketing Agencies in Worcester. In cities like Holden, where I live, police are seen as much more diligent, potentially leading to fewer accidents because drivers are more aware of their actions. Methodology In determining which cities in Central Massachusetts have the highest insurance premiums, GoLocal used the Auto Insurance Premium Comparison tool from the Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation website to create a defined set of criteria to create a driver profile. All insurance premiums reflect rates effective January 1, 2014. The driver -- a single vehicle, single operator, who has been licensed for 14 years owns a 2008 Honda Civic LX. The driver in question is currently licensed in Massachusetts and has not only been with their insurance company for three years, but hasnt had an accident in the past five. The driver commutes to work and drove 15,000 miles in the past year. In terms of coverage, the criteria states that the vehicle operator opts for relatively low levels of coverage, with $20,000/$40,000 for bodily injury, uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage limits, as well as $25,000 worth of coverage for property damage. The driver has also declined both collision and comprehensive coverage. The Results According to the driver profile created above, the highest a vehicle operator would pay for an automobile insurance premium in Worcester would be $997 per year, $282 over Central Massachusetts average insurance premium of about $715. Worcester ranks almost $400 higher than the lowest insurance premiums in the area, Templeton, whose highest insurance premiums are $602. For a place like Worcester, factors like population definitely play a role, said Cheryl Hooper, manager at Protector Insurance Group. The more people you have, the more of a risk for an accident. Higher populations also mean more congested areas, which could lead to more accidents.
