bogus rented car parking ticket

Jump to last reply

In 2012 I rented a car from Hertz at the Palermo airport, and returned it a month later to the Palermo Airport, after traveling 1085 km. Months after I had returned to the United States I received a notice from NiviCredit requesting payment for a parking violation in ROME, issued within the time frame of my rental. Rome is 929 km away from Palermo (round trip 1858 km), thus it is out of the question that the car I rented was in Rome while rented to me.
I am still struggling with this, most recently with Cedar Financial out of Calabasas, Ca.
I suspect collusion between unscrupulous traffic cops and car rental agencies. I want to get to the bottom of this, and I have started a blog documenting my case in the hope that others would join forces with me and expose these scumbags.

I would appreciate the help of other innocent victims.
Here is the rub: incredibly, in Italy, if a public official (cops included) issues a citation, that citation is considered factual and accurate. It is up to the driver to demonstrate that (s)he is innocent! Guilty until proven innocent! And the "public official," at least in my case, is not required to demonstrate that, again in my case, the car was where he said it was, Rome.
