I have a major beef with MoneySup regarding my recent experience in car insurance comparison.
They sent me an e-mail of their own accord showing their top three prices that they had found 'using the details that I gave them last year'. The prices were cheaper than the same insurers for the same cover through other avenues so, after considerable time spent checking all the different sites and cashback deals I went through them.
Only when getting to the final stage before paying did I notice that some of the details passed through from MoneySup to the insurer were inaccurate. I checked and the same problem occurred with several insurers. An honest error, you might think. However, some key factors such as the value of the vehicle and the estimated annual mileage were *considerably* reduced from what I had entered. My occupation was changed as well as some other information being wrong. In my opinion the only explanation for this was that MoneySup's website has been deliberately programmed to systematically change this information in order to generate artificially low quotes.
This is a very worrying problem as it would be easy to overlook these discrepancies and assume that the details that you had personally entered would be persistent. This would potentially result in a user buying insurance that might not be valid and that would present great difficulty if needing to claim.
This is a seriously dishonest and underhanded move by MoneySup and I would advise any users of their site to be extremely careful and triple-check all information before making their purchase.
