IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT D/T GOT CAUGHT GIVING BRIBES.
THEIR SALES REPS BLATANTLY GIVE OUT GAS CARDS AND GIFT CERTIFICATES TO THE INSURANCE AGENTS. IT IS A COMPANY WIDE PRACTICE AND I AM SURE THEY ARE REGRETTING THEIR DECISION TO GIVE PAY OFFS. ALSO, GLASSAMERICA HAS TAKEN IT ONE STEP FURTHER. THEY HAVE A STANDARDIZED FORM THEY GIVE TO THE AGENTS FOR GLASS LOSSES. THE AGENTS FILL OUT THE FORM AND FAX IT TO GLASSAMERICA AND THEY RECEIVE A KICK BACK, USUALLY $25.00 GAS CARDS. I KNOW FIRSTHAND BECAUSE I HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT WORK IN INSURANCE OFFICES, AND THEY TELL ME AND SHOW ME THE FORMS THAT ARE BEING USED. I HOPE SOME STATE AGENCIES WILL STEP IN AND STOP THESE PAYOFFS. HERE IN TAXACHUSETTS, IT IS ILLEGAL TO OFFER INDUCEMENTS.
