Europcar Complaint - Europcar = credit card fraud
STAY AWAY FROM THESE CRIMINALS AS FAR AS YOU CAN!!!!!!
Europcar is basically an enormous credit card fraud scheme, covering as a car rental company.
I too have had a horrible experience with them and I am taking legal action (not just threatening with it). Feel free to join me if you were treated the same way.(see below).
My story (Perth, Australia):
Rented a car that had a scratch on the rear bumper when I got it (clearly marked on the rental agreement form as 'DAMAGE OUT'). Returned it in the exact same condition, but the airport desked was unmanned. Same scratch was marked as 'new damage' by some lazy employee afterwards. My card is now charged with 3023 euros (yes: three thousand!!!!!) For a stupid 5cm scratch that was already there!?!? I've explained their mistake to them numerous times. No reply to my many emails, needless to say. They just take your money and then ignore you.
Look around on the internet and you will find nothing but horror stories of people being charged ridiculous amounts from their credit cards for impossible claims by Europcar.
If you wish to help me put an end to these practices, you can contact me at: email@example.com
I will be collecting all your stories, contact the press and if you are interested, my lawyer can prepare an international class action lawsuit. This is criminal behaviour and it has to be stopped.
