Help! Anyone else victim of Hertz rental car return "damages" charge scam?

Jump to last reply

We just returned from a vacation and were absolutely shocked and livid at finding two charges from Hertz, one for $1100 that had cleared and another pending for $790. [And we even had the CW that limits damage expenses to 800E!]

We prepaid for the rental through AutoEurope, and returned the car to the Hertz garage in Munich as planned, where it was looked over by the attendant in the Hertz lane. There was no damage or scratch---we did not see any, we never experienced even a near scrape with any vehicle or object, and we inspected the car ourselves at the garage. The attendant said it looked good. Unfortunately we didn't take digital photos in the garage (good suggestion by others).

Tonight I called Hertz Munich desk to inquire about the charge and they stated emphatically they have photos to document "damage" to the car. Note: he didn't see the car, just has photos allegedly taken by parking garage attendants. He also invited me to come to the office and look at the pictures myself because he was unable to mail them or send via email!

In reading through Trip Advisor and other forums, Hertz rental car "damages" scam in Germany and other countries is not unusual. This is outright fraud as far as I'm concerned. Any advise (other than calling my credit car company)?
