Be On the Lookout for the Windshield Glass Scam

So there yo are, getting gas, or in a parking lot when a stranger comes up and identifies himself as an employee of an auto glass company. He tells you your windshield is damaged, but he can repair it for free. Just give him your insurance information and he’ll handle the rest.  What do you do?

This person is trying to scam you. What he doesn’t tell you is that he’ll be filing a claim against your insurance company. That’s not all. Many of these scam artists use old fashioned techniques of glass repair, which can result in a poor repair job.

When you give a scam artist your insurance information, you are providing them with all the information they need to file additional claims against your policy without you knowing about it.

According to  AAA.com, if you know you have glass damage, always take your vehicle to a reputable glass company and ask them for their opinion before you go ahead with repairs.
