Good Morning David. Companies send out offers to entice new customers all the time.. As a consumer, if you’re unsure about something you have the right to contact the company and let them know that you need more information. You can thank them for sending the email, but make it clear you need to know what the quote is before you will accept any offer. In this day and age when everyone is being inundated with emails and text messages from companies trying to sell you a service, it’s our job as consumers to make sure we have a clear understanding of the offer. This could mean having to follow-up with the company by phone or in person if necessary.
