San Francisco’s New Bait and Switch Scam

by Staff Blogger | February 20th, 2017

Ever ordered something online and when it arrived, it turned out to be completely different than advertised? I think we all have. That can be pretty frustrating, as well as costly. When it happens, it’s completely within your rights to demand a full refund. After all, the vendor failed to live up to their end of the bargain. But what if instead of issuing a refund, the vendor demanded more money? Sounds ridiculous, but that’s exactly what many California life insurance policyholders are facing right now.

It’s called life insurance company fraud. You purchase a life insurance policy for an agreed-upon premium payment every month. You pay those premiums without fail like the ideal policyholder. Then one day you receive a notice in the mail that your premiums are going up for the exact same policy. What’s worse, if you don’t pay the inflated premiums, you could lose the key benefits of the policy. Sound like a bait and switch? That’s because it is.
