  People read this very carefully. On Sep 6, 2016 I rented a car from Dollar Rent A Car for 6 days.  When I rented the car it was filthy and it had scratches all over it, but because I was already tired I took the car. I returned car on 9/13/16 and realized that they charge $56 facility fee and $18 concession fee and $21 in sales tax. So my bill went from $168 to $284.21. I thought the charges were ridiculous but whatever.

On Jan 13th 2017, I received a notice from their office stating I did not pay certain toll charges totaling $3.40 and assessed $15.00 adminstration fee per toll which was totaled to be $33.40. I carefully examined the notice. The claim stated the toll happened on Sep 6, 2016 at 6:42pm and another at 7:00. I thought it was strange because I went to Great Lakes, Illinois from Chicago O'hare Airport after picking my car at 2:47 and went straight to Hotel which was 30 miles North of car rental place and never left for the remainder of the day.

I called the place I told them that I was never at those tolls and to send me some proof. They said that unpaid tolls are sent in form of a report from Illnois Tollway, which is not true. So basically, they have no proof. Then they had the nerve to ask me proof I was elsewhere and I told them, " You are the ones that are sending me a bill, the burden is on and I am not doing your job." They immediately started telling me that customers could be lying and I was like, "Really?"

They then tried to give a courtesy waiver of charges and it would take 5 days. While during the time, I investigated myself to make sure that I did not make a mistake. And this is what I found:

The Tolls were located on Army Trail Rd and OHare(East) in which I was nowhere near those areas. So when I googled the tools, I noticed that the tolls were more than 18 minutes apart. My car was 4 cylinder Blue Elantra and during rush hour times, there is no reasonable way to get arrive at those tolls between tolls in 18 minutes. 

So upon discovering this I sent an email stating my findings and told them I was not paying. I even placed a block on my card as they stated that they were automatically going to charge my card.

Their last email stated that my case has been moved up to management.

The point is that no customer should be treated like this and if a company has a nerve to charge an adminstration fee per toll they need to make d**n sure that people did it. Also, i am not paying for phantom toll charges!

I will update the outcome of this!
