Car Hire Scam
LONDON -- We were scammed by this company last year (2008). After returning the car in perfect condition and then flying out of the UK, we did not receive our (large) deposit back. All calls to their (premium rate) customer service number went unanswered as did emails and faxes. After three months of complaints we only got a refund by approaching our credit card company who agreed that we had been unfairly treated and reversed the deposit charge.
Many many people have been scammed by Car-Hire-UK. Com and are taking matters further on the internet and by dealing with the UK Trading Standards Authority and The Police etc. BEWARE of this company!
