Anyone rent from Hertz and receive a traffic violation scam notice?
I was recently in TN and rented a car from Hertz. I was notified by a company that I received a traffic violation in the rental car and for a $30 fee they would "handle" it. In smaller print it says the $30 violation handling fee is separate from the actual traffic ticket. Basically, Hertz gave this company my credit card number and they said they would be charging my credit card $30 if I didn't reply. Further, the info on the form said the traffic violation occurred in OH, which was incorrect. This is the company information: Hertz Processing Services>www.hertzrentalfine.com>ATS Processing Services>www.rentalticket.com.
I was able to view the violation and picture at the city I was driving in and could pay them the fine directly. Why is Hertz handing out my credit card number to this scam business that wants me to pay them a $30 handling fee? I canceled the credit card so the $30 fee wouldn't be automatically deducted. Has anyone had this happen to them?
