Honestly It is Really Hard for me to Get all this OUT! I get sick to my stomach about it- I do NOT know how any of these guys sleep at night... EACH and EVERY ONE of them KNEW EXACTLY what they were doing to me, how they were ripping me off and What the consequences were for ME FOR WHAT THEY WERE DOING TO ME!""SOUL-LESS"" ""THEY STOLE MY CAR I WAS RENTING FROM THEM AND REPORTED IT STOLEN...meanwhile sneaking charging my card over 8000! LEGALLY I've had to REMAIN QUIET until NOW
What they have done to me is Deliberate,Cruel Theives! $25,000.00 In fraudulent charges, attorney fees, private investigator, court fines!Eric E Vahid, Byron, Boko, ""al"" perez,Malicious,DESPICABLE, CORRUPT,Arrogant,NASTY GROUP OF Ugly LIARS!!!
05/31/08 Rented a Vehicle $249 WEEKLY, $1,150 30 DAY (including insurance) Basic Care Rentals from Byron at 10687 santa monica blvd.they authorized my credit card for $1,000 as I was renting vehicle 4 weeks.
The only car they had a cracked windshield I was told I could exchange it following day. 3DAYS Later that car broke down. took.24hrs before I got a different car. That Night tire blew out I USED my aaa and I ended having to buy a tire couldn't get hold of basic
Over the next 10 days I had to call let them know of car was having issues.I would have to call all three locations and or text Eric and Al the managers to get a response they were very ""casual"" attitude.
June 16th I get a extremely rude message from ""byron"" stating to me ""the car is reported stolen and it needs to be returned immediately and the police have been notified.""No explanation why... I'm freaking out!I have no idea what is going on!No one is answering their phones at any locations regular business hours. I sent several texts to Main Manager Eric Vahid and La Brea Manager ""Al Perez""(fake name it turns out) I am terrified to drive the car to them as I don't want to get in any sort of trouble.2 hours and still NOTHING- I have my friend follow me to a hotel parking lot about a mile from their location where I park the car leave the key under the mat and again left messages at all locations and text both managers with location of car and key and TO PLEASE CALL ME!WHAT IS GOING ON!
June 17th drove by where I left the car it was gone,
June 19th I called my credit card company confirmed that basic car rental charged and was paid $1,150that day.Even though they had over charged me 400bucks I felt some relief as they had car and closed out my bill. Maybe some crazy misunderstanding and they were too embarrassed to call me back.
