I’m not so good about opening mail quickly, unless it is something I’m expecting, like a credit card bill. This letter was delivered over a month ago, from my insurance company. It says the state informed them (the insurance company) they have no record of a car registered in the state with the VIN number the insurance company says is insured. And that the state is going to do something bad to me for telling my insurance company I have a car with that VIN when I don’t. I forget what the threat is.
Now this car has been in the state for over 20 years, re-registered each year. And the same insurance company all those years. And the current registration paperwork directly from the state shows the same VIN as it always has. And it matches the VIN on the insurance company has for this car. And it matches the VIN stamped on the car.
The insurance company is asking me to send back a questionnaire explaining why I have a car with the wrong VIN number, with a long list of questions, and asking for my signature. And a self addressed envelope to some address I’ve never sent anything to regarding auto insurance.
I’m wondering if this is some kind of scam? Someone trying to rip me off, get personal information. What do you think?
