Nature of complaint: The company has processed an unauthorized credit card charges
I applied for a zipcar account on 12/20/2011 with the understanding that there would be an annual membership fee of $25. My application was subsequently denied. However, Zipcar proceeded with charging me $25 annual
membership fee, not once, but twice on my American Express card. I am furious about this kind of practice. Details of the email dated 12/21/2011 attached below: "We are sorry to inform you that your application to Zipcar was
