I've heard that, but never actually seen it happen. If its true, I would think it would be only a select few insurance companies, probably the same ones that want the cheapest labor, aftermarket or used parts, etc, and are used to seeing shoddy work, so thats what they expect everyone to do. Couple that with a lack of understand on the adjusters part, and I could see them thinking this way.
