Fraudulent scams are nothing new in the rental car industry, but claims of rental car damage scams are on the rise. Throughout Florida and the entire country, there has been an increase in consumer complaints and public outcry regarding Enterprise Rent-A-Car and their less-than-savory business tactics. According to many consumers, the rental car company has been charging customers for damages they did not cause.
Many consumer advocacy groups have noticed the increase in complaints, especially in Florida. Attorney generals in many states also receive a large number of complaints regarding rental car companies. In many cases, a majority of these claims were made against Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Being aware of these issues and fraudulent schemes can help local residents of Florida better protect themselves from financial damage. To protect yourself, our Florida attorneys recommend that you do the following when renting a vehicle:
- Thoroughly inspect a vehicle before leaving the lot
- Notify a representative of any concerns you have about the condition of the vehicle
- Take pictures of the vehicle when you first receive it from the company and after you notice any damages
- Take notes of any readily visible damages
