Fraudulent Windshield Replacement

Have you ever been approached by a so-called mechanic while getting out of, or into your car Have you ever been approached by a so-called mechanic while getting out of, or into your car at the mall or supermarket? It’s not as uncommon as one might think. These so-called mechanics may try to convince you that there is somethingbroken windshield wrong with your car, and they just happen to have the parts on-the-spot to make the needed repairs. This kind of situation often involves windshields, as the scammy mechanic will attempt to tell you that your windshield is in desperate need of repair as soon as possible due to some kind of non-existent damage. These individuals are typically quite convincing, as they’ve perfected their routine in every way. Amazingly, they’ll have the exact type of windshield you need (because they are targeting certain car makes and models), and the replacement won’t even cost you a dime. Insurance will cover the whole replacement in full. It almost seems too good to be true, right? Well, as with anything else in life – it is. These overly helpful mechanics that saved you from some kind of windshield crisis will most likely replace your windshield with one of lesser quality. Additionally, they might use your insurance information to file multiple windshield replacement claims – thereby causing your insurance rates to soar, or causing your insurance to cancel your policy completely.
