Why is there a car I don't recognize coming back in my car insurance quotes?
I'm looking into new car insurance carriers and noticed that a vehicle I don't recognize is appearing in my quotes. I recently experienced a theft and I'm concerned that somehow they got a hold of my personal information. Should I be worried?

“Car insurance carriers look at a variety of information when quoting you for a policy. The reports and information that they receive are typically related to your name and address.
While it may be concerning to see a vehicle you don’t recognize, it most likely was a vehicle that was previously registered to your address. A family member or prior resident could have owned the vehicle.
If you are still worried about it, reach out to the insurance company directly. They will be able to provide you more information on how their reporting works, correct any errors, and ensure that the vehicle isn’t associated with your new policy.
You should feel confident looking into car insurance quotes online. Never be afraid to reach out to insurance companies to clarify information. “

What should I do if my car insurance company gives me the runaround after I file a claim?
I was in a no-fault accident. When I called my insurer to file a claim, they told me they needed the police report first. I got the report and sent it in two weeks later due to some clerical errors by the police. After calling my insurer several times, I still haven't heard a definitive answer on the status of my claim.
