This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

No it isn't fraud by Denver Jim
If Geico accepts his estimate without having their appraiser get an agreed price it's their fault and he has every right to seek a better deal and he can keep the extra. Geico knows this and probably has a policy of accepting estimates on a certain level of losses.
And as far as Keogh's below, the value of your vehicle is not reduced with a minor loss like this. I don't know where some of this stuff comes from. It's made up I suspect or people think they are experts because they had an accident once and dealt with an adjuster.
