Just read how this company got itself sued and ruined it's reputation. Bait and switch then sent me off in very broken compact car instead of mid sized, charged me for mid sized and then illegally charged me for $220 for the window that was installed one hour before pick up breaking in sixteen or so places the first bump in the highway I hit. They said they weren't going to charge me cause it wasn't my fault and the soon to be criminally charged John Dinterman charged my card anyhow.
Total con man this John Dinterman fellow is. Suing the parent company as well.

Notice of Intent to File
This notification is being faxed with delivery confirmation on April the seventh year of our Lord two thousand and thirteen to both of the above mentioned defendants in this case. [continued below]....
..... What I consider good notice is being given to ensure no confusion going forward and to solidify my request of the court for trebled damages to be awarded to me and liability for said damages be split equally between both parties named in this small tort civil action. Your authorized agent acted in bad faith and with obvious malicious intent.
Since the rules of evidence do not apply in small claims in Maryland do not expect thirty days prior to filling or for me to respond to any interrogatories prior to court as discovery is not allowed in these types of cases in Maryland. I will file the moment my bank manager calls me with documentation that the fraudulent charge made by John Dinterman himself clears my account.
I made John Dinterman and your national sales director aware of the impending lawsuit yesterday and the owner has chosen to battle this pro se litigant, The Attorney Generals Department of Consumer Protection for the State of Maryland, my Google, Yelp and RippOff Report reviews, rather than not commit fraud by stealing from me utilizing an access device credit card. This Operation is also in violation of Maryland Commercial Law, Title Thirteen Consumer Protection Act, for consumer fraud bait and switch. You booked me for an intermediate I Car and then gave me a compact with orange tape all over the windshield which was installed one hour earlier.
When returned you did not adjusted the bill and wrongly charged me for a car class that which I did not receive. This operation is also endangering the public by renting vehicles with newly installed windows that still have the tape on them. The first bump in the road I went over while engaged in ordinary course of business for the renting of a vehicle, the glass broke in about sixteen different places. The next day the heat spread the cracks into my line of sight making the operation of the vehicle more inherently dangerous. I called it in.
You advised me to bring it back. I advise your authorized agents that as stipulated in the contract I was in Indiana. Your authorized agents did not offer a replacement from another U-Save in said state. The vehicle had a bad left front wheel bearing or separated tread. I was on a business trip and had to put up with this or risking costing my business money which would then lead to incidental damages in this case. When returned Joe said it was not from a rock but from the sealant not being cured from replacement only hours earlier and that I wasnt being charged.
The next day the bank showed your authorized agent, whom I would not have rented from without your name on the door and your brand standing behind the vehicles, charged me moments later two hundred twenty dollars for the windshield which through no negligence of my own had broken as a result of poor workmanship or failure to allow sealant to cure for appropriate amount of time. Both of these reasons would not be legal cause to charge my Visa without my knowledge permission or consent. If I broke something I would pay for something. Your man John Dinterman is a crook.
I went in and spoke to a Mr. Kimmel who said that John is a two faced back stabber and the fact he was nice to me when I rented the car meant nothing. He further added that he talks trash about each employee behind their backs and that they all share hat he says when John is not present. It was relayed to me by Mr. Kimmel that he thought it was a huge mistake to lie and cheat a customer like he had witnessed. Mr. Kimmel was present when I returned it and your authorized agent Joe stated they were not charging me. I passed John Dinterman on the way off the lot and waved at him. Mr. Kimmel said as soon as John walked in the door and without inspecting aforementioned death trap vehicle, he said charge the card.
I will not settle on the court house steps. I will show up. I will not drop the suit once its filed for partial payment (compensatory damages only). I feel within five minutes of hearing this case Judge Roberts or Ambrose will award me trebled damages in this case. I will not dismiss you as a defendant for any reason. I dont care threaten to have me labeled as a vexatious litigant, or counter claim me for your legal bills. I will win. I do not believe you are indemnified in this matter. You will be the number two defendant and your R/A will be served within two weeks. I live in this county.
Without your brand backing this guy, the transaction would not have occurred. I have found case law which I will include in my exhibits and reference in my pleadings to the court that support my position for going after both entities. Before you screw people over for fun you may want to search Pacer or the local judiciary case searches first. If you
feel once notified of your court date and once you have filed your notice of intent to defend, that you would prefer this case be heard as a diversity jurisdiction civil action in Federal court just pay the four hundred dollar removal fee and I will see you there with bells on.
