Be careful: Swindlers in I.V.R. Camper, Terracina, Italy.

Swindlers: foreigner’s adventure in I.V.R. Camper, Terracina, Italy. I rented very worn Fiat Punto for 1 day, IVR asked €800 deposit. It was a surprise, but.. What may happen with this old junk? Next morning the car was ok. I visited the supermarket and drove to IVR. Manager Iuliano immediately came to Punto fender and showed a small dent (he said €100 at most). Next day: 347 euros+VAT. Next day: €1350 bill. I asked Italian friends to send a bill from the local mechanic and he faxed €300 bill. IVR did not accept it.

If this is not a swindle then what is a swindle?

So you rented a car from some unknown people in a camper in Italy and are surprised that it is a scam?

When renting a car you must use a reliable company (there are many online) and certainly not give anyone a cash deposit.

It seems you have made every mistake possible and then come here to complain about it.
