NetQuoteHorrible leads and customer no service!

Leads are sold to unlimited brokers though they swear 8 is the max. Getting credit for bogus leads is impossible, they hit your credit card up front and when they know I am calling for credit or to cancel they intentially put me on hold forever hoping I will just hang up, they used to be good many years ago but now they are a rip off!

        Netquotes is the biggest scam for internet leads. We had to return over 60% of our leads because of false information. During a 3 week period we received the same fake lead from one person with the same address and 6 different names all pretty similar and all for 2011 cars. It was a very frustrating experience and we would never go with them again. At one point I personally signed up for a quote and I got a response from 6 different insurance agents, that is after they tell you they only send it to 2-3 agents. They are making over $70/lead sending it to all those agents. Mayor Scam!!!
        The premium plus leads are suposed to be from people who have a clean driving record the last 3 yrs and at least 12 months of insurance. They all had that on the lead but not even half complied with that. Since they couldn't guarantee you anything, you simply lost out every time. None of these leads go by a human filter. We received leads from "Tiger Woods", "Paul Mitchell", "Jack Russell", "Katy Perry", etc.
        NOt to mention the bogus emails we got as well.

      NetQuoteCaution Agents: They are stealing your money!!!

      I've been an insurance agent for several years. Internet leads are a natural source of prospecting for new business. There are some good company's out there, but unfortunatley there are some very bad. The very bad is led by Netquote. I was purchasing 5-8 leads a day from Netquote and started noticing a large increase in bad leads. There are always a decent percentage of bad leads but mine incrreased dramatically. My ability to get credits for these leads was also cut off by Netquote so I called. I had to get fairly agressive with the CS reps and ask repeatedly to speak to a supervisor. I did speak to a supervisor who basically told me that the company saw that they were loosing too much money on credits (mentioned 10million dollars) so they cap it so the company can make more money. I explained that they are not providing the service that they agree to provide for payment. If you track your leads and keep good records, you will see that they send out the same leads in a rotation. If anyone ever actually took the time to start a class action suit against Netquote and were able to tear agpart their operation and records..they would be toast. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! There are plenty of other compays out there that provide the same service and do a much better job at it without trying to steal your money.
      Here is an email that was sent by the Netquote rep:
      ":Spoke with Jillian, Loss Prevention Dept, 6/28/11. Stated it doesn't matter who I talk to up to the CEO of the company, there will be no credits issued above 25% no matter how many bad leads are sent. Said coversation will be recorded and be able to be pulled and used if needed in any legal matter. Conversation took place 9:13am 6/28/2011."

          NetQuoteUnethical Business Practices

          Recently this company has implemented a refund cap on their "product" regardless of how much of it is actually bad. After hitting my cap, because they average 60% bullsh**, I was locked out of returning leads and was sent a string of leads that were "I just want to win (Vic Secret, Starbucks) gift card" and they repeatedly refused to return my $70 that they were over charging me. For the consumer, it gives agents a bad name, for the agent, this company steals from the agents they are here to "serve". STAY AWAY

              the same exact thing has happened to me...the last 2 months of leads from net quote have averaged over 55% bad leads...and that is 55% of the ones i could reach within their 10-day time limit...i don't think its an exaggeration to say that 75% of their leads are bogus with numerous disconnected numbers, phone numbers that don't belong to the prospects listed, a huge percentage of people who state they never went online to make this inquiry...people who were even deceased for several years...and the other 25% so-called "good" leads are being called by upwards of 15 agents and those people are not happy about that as well...i agree with the orignal post...STAY AWAY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE RIPPED-OFF!

              Ditto on that nd i got locked out in february where i had 10 leads and submitted for credit on 2 of them. then they where almost volunteering to cancel my zip codes .. my guess is so they can sell the same crappy leads they have been reguritating to me for the past 4 years. many times they person has state they had that car 3 years ago but have a new car now. And when i brought that up they said they have no control if people ener wrong info. My thoughs are she knew 5 minutes a go what kid of car she drives, she was able to tell me. i think there sales reps actually enter old leads through the system as new again.

              NetQuote Lead ServiceBad Leads-Ignore written cancellation

              Company is selling bad leads and refusing to respond to cancellation notices, emails and have long wait on telepohne calls to their customer service number. 100 % of the 15 free leads supplied replied were wrong nmbers or the person denied submitting any online information. When I cancelled in writing and stopped using the leads, they kept sending leads to email until the bill was more than $ 1000.00. When I tried to reach them by telephone, I got answering machines telling me that the wait was ten minues or more. I got through on one occasion, explained the situation, sent a email to the person I spoke to and still never got a response in writting after I told him I was not going to pay. No response at all to any of my written communication and then a call saying they want to sue if I don't settle, even though I did not even call the leads after the first 15 and then the written cancellation notice. All of these leads were dead leads.

                Netquote.comMisleading info

                This website states you can receive quotes (I was searching for home insurance) online from several companies to compare. Instead, there is no online comparison...after you input your information, all the agents from different insurance companies begin calling you. Within one minute of transmitting my information online, I had two different agents calling me!! I have a disability and find it hard to talk on the phone for any length of time. This was exactly what I was trying to avoid...talking to all these agents. If that had been clearly stated by Netquote, I would not have participated. I have contacted their offices and requested they remove my contact information. This appears to be nothing more than a place that "says" they will help you compare companies...but all it does is forward your information to agents. Heck, I could have called the agents myself..but now I'm at the mercy of marketing calls for who knows how long. They should have an "opt out" system. Beware you may get something you don't plan on dealing with unless you really check them out.

                    NetQuote has you enter all your information and then sends you nothing! no quotes at all, just places to contact. There was not one quote listed and I am pretty sure my phone will be ringing off the wall first thing in the morning.

                      I just spoke to a Ms.Louise Hart.
                      She is totally surprised about this. She was born in 1937 not 1984 and lives in the same address but the rest of the information is bogus and was

                      made up!

                      I am going to file a formal complaint with the authorities about the way you hook agents and brokers up on this type of scam and charge us an

                      exorbitant amount to provide us with genuine inquiries not bogus leads.


                      For your information again and again, this is the only person I was able to talk to since I have used your service. She is going to file a complaint for

                      using her name and number and selling it to dozens of people (she has received many calls from agents like myself!).

                      You must stop sending me leads from this point and terminate your miserable contract Immediately and confirming this to me within

                      24 hours!

                      Please refrain from charging my account because I have all the records and based on the time and effort I have put into trying to reach these leads,

                      I am entitled to refund of what you have already charged on my card. At this point I am not going to claim anything for my lost time and effort.

                      However, If you do not take this communication seriously, I will take some more time and sue you for conducting a fraudulent business because by

                      conducting business like this you are not only profiting but you are also endangering agents and brokers reputation and livelihood! No wonder people

                      are afraid of trusting each other!

                          I experienced the same situation with Netquote.com . I received 5 emails in response to an auto insurance quote request, however, I did not request a quote for insurance. The quotes provided were for a car I do not have and for a quote I did not request. My name, email and address provided to the agents is accurate but I did not request anything.

                          After further review, it appears that netquote is the delivery service of my "lead" information to these agents. From my research, Netquote has a reputation for selling bogus leads to insurance agents. See http://www.complaintsboard.com and type in netquote. I will be happy to support any of your positions with netquote regarding their false delivery of information, and charging partners for bogus info. (contact me by email at [email protected])

                          The business that I received emails from are: Geico, Amica, American Family and Statefarm.

                          I emailed each of the agents and notified them of the deception and delivery of bogus info. If this happens to you as a consumer, contact the BBB. If you are an agent, do your research and you will quickly recognize that this is not an isolated occurrence.

I have never been on this site, nor am I in the market for new insurance. They have an old mailing address and a phony email address and DOB. Something is fishy.

                          NetQuote is dishonest toagents because even when you can document that a lead is false(returned mail undeliverable for example), they refuse to credit the account. Or when you can document the bad lead, but do not provise it in their limited window of time they will not rebate the lead. I have gotten phone calls from irate people who want to know where I got their name. I refer them to Netquote to let them explain the dishonesty. There is no substitute for just advertising the traditional way.

                        I signed up for this service, when I was an insurance agent...the leads were bogus and repeats...most of them were the same:no interest;bogus name;bogus contact info and/or just no interest("Uh...We already bought insurance last week..." even though I replied the same day that the lead was sent to me)and etc etc.I quit them during the trial period and they continued to send me leads.I ALWAYS replied to them(when they sent me these leads) by email and/or phoned them-but they continued to send me these "leads"( and of course the bills for them) even after I left the Insurance industry.
                        I would not reccomend this company to ANYONE-especially if you are new to the business and in need of REAL leads...you would be better served if you found a real and effective Lead source-which this certainly is not.

                            NetQuote, Took $51.00 out of my account after I cancelled my account through emails and phone calls. I left the insurance company I was working for 60 days ago. I was charged for insurance leads that I never received. After talking to the head of complaints, T___, he agreed to not charge me for the remainder of the leads which was $21.00. If he was willing to see his wrong on the $21.00, why isn't willing to see it for the $51.00. NetQuote will not be able to use my old account number because it was destroyed. I have a new card now. What a hassle, this was. If I did business this way I would loose my insurance license and be put in jail. I will contact the BBB in Denver and the State Attorney General's Office and whatever else I can do as a citizen of the USA to help others.

                            I SUGGEST EVERYONE USE WISE JUDGEMENT WHEN LOOKING FOR INSURANCE OR INSURANCE LEADS!

                            I am still receiving automated emails regarding an account I supposedly closed over three months ago. I was told when I started it that I had a three month free trial and they were going to control the flow of leads to stay within the parameters of that trial. Long story short, I received an email today from their collections dept. trying to hit me up for $1410! I never used a single lead!!! I forwarded my previous messages that I had saved indicating in bright bold letters to cancel my account immediately, yet apparently nobody ever processed my request. I'm furious! Nobody should use this service...it's a complete scam!

                            I am a broker and have used NetQuote. They care very little about agents or brokers. They regularly sell leads from bad affiliates even after they say they will stop that practice.

                            Many of their leads (health insurance) are from prospects that had no intentions of getting a quote. They were responding to surveys etc...free ipods etc...


                            Stay away from Netquote. They are a very bad lead company.

                            The internet is littered with complaints from agents who have signed up for services provided by Netquote. Those services were to obtain contact information for individuals that were seeking help with health insurance and wanted to be contacted by an agent.

                            Instead we were sent names of people who though they were getting items such as free i-pods.

                            They have become the largest provided of these services by taking advantages of agents that are trying to make a living by assisting people that want our help, not selling us bogus information.

                            They are now trying to extort $1000 from me in unpaid balances. Although they have admitted some fault and have agreed to credit $400.

                            I am looking for agents who have encountered the same problems and would like to file suit against them to protect other agents from falling prey to their unethical sales practices.

                            NetQuote is a TERRIBLE insurance leads service. Don't WASTE your $$$$$ on these insurance leads. There leads are not real time or valid most of the time. They also sell them to other companies so when you call to contact the lead name. You and 10 other insurance agents are calling the same person. I can't tell you how many complaints I received from customers asking me how I got their names and phone numbers. NetQuote also charged my credit card $50 after I cancelled my account in March and then argued with me on the phone that they wouldn't credit my account back after I spent over $1, 700 for a bad leads and terrible customer service. STAY AWAY from NETQUOTE...

                            I wanted to shop for a quote via online. Now I have jerks calling me with MY personal information. I am sick of this and consider it criminal . I wish the Law in Our country would go back to punishing Scammer. I am going to press hard now to expose thes IDIOTS.
                            If they don't have a way to contact them to ask questions without gathering Information They are Liars. Don't give any information to these people. Once you do it you cannot get it back.
                            If you are selling insurance and want a good customer . I am shopping and will purchase only from a company that does NOT scam or use Scammers to get customers.

                          NetQuoteUnauthorized charges/billing

                          When I originally agreed to use their lead services for individual health quotes, I was adamant that my budget was for approximately $100 per month in leads. As I do mostly group benefits, this was the number of leads (about 20 each month) that I had time, and extra money, to follow up on.

                          Dec '08 was perfect, and I got charged in Jan for the $98. Although the quality of leads wasn't what I expected at all. Some of the families were just browsing, and weren't seriously interested at all. Okay, one or two I understand.

                          Then, in January I wasn't receiving any, so I sent an email (which I just got a response to on March 13th!) as to why I hadn't received any leads. Later that week, a couple of them showed up in my email inbox. February 27th, they billed my checking account for $616! 88 leads of which I received less than 20!

                          Now, they are trying to recharge my account for another $580, even though I immediately called and cancelled. I cannot get any supervisor on the phone...I just have hourly idiots telling me that I was wrong, that I am just getting the leads for the territories (aka zip codes) I signed up for...which I never verbally or otherwise agreed to. My agreement was for a specific number of MAXIMUM leads each month and that was it.

                          Now, I'm so far behind in that account that I've had to switch all of my direct deposits to a different account(because it threw my budget off by over $500, not to mention the fact that all my insurance premiums, including E&O coverage, have bounced. I've paid over $300 in overdraft fees.

                          If I treated my clients like this, I would have my licenses yanked.

                              In September 2009 I agreed to $3 dollar auto leads, min $200 purchase. I have received my first bill, almost $400 with an average lead cost of $6.50.

                              Thus far, most prospects are unemployed, no prior insurance and have bad credit therefore only quailify for nonstandard auto carriers.

                              I called the customer service line and spoke with the Netquote rep that set up my account and was informed another CSR would have to fix it, but it should'nt be a problem. He gladly transferred me to the Lead CSR whom I had to leave a message for and today I received an email from another Netquote CSR informing me that they do not have $3 auto leads.

                              Good thing all calls from and to my office are legally recorded... I have a feeling I'm going to need them.

                            STAY AWAY FROM NETQUOTE. The quality of the leads are extremely poor. I was not told that the leads would also go to 3 or 4 other local agents. I had to sign up for three months and was promised highest quality leads. If you get a false name they will give you credit if you notify them within 48 hours. My big problem came after I canceled the service. They called two weeks later to inquire how I liked the service. I told them it was a very poor investment on my part. He asked if they could provide free home leads as they should be better. I agreed to the free home leads in order to evaluate them as he suggested.

                            However, those leads were just as bad and then without my authorization they started charging my credit card. AS soon as I noticed the billing, I called to complain but got nowhere. I asked to cancel all services. They billed me once again and I again called to complain. Then they took an 'official' cancellation. I am now having a hell of a time getting Capital One to take the charges off. I may have to contact our Atty General to see what can be done about unauthorized credit card charges.

                                As for Capital One, you should switch to American Express. Their dispute is great and usually reverse the charges if it was a scam.
