International Credit FRAUD: 1st UK Car Rentals is a rip off scam *REBUTTAL!!
Category: Auto & Truck Rental Submitted: 9/10/01 Modified: 9/10/01 I found “1st UK Car Rentals” on the web while looking for a car for one week to come home from the US to Wales for my brothers wedding. Reservation # FR14329 was confirmed online and my credit card was billed almost immediately. Instructions back from 1st-UK were that they would meet me at Heathrow information desk just outside the customs hall on September 5th at 21:00. My flight was 20 minutes early so I was at the information desk by 20:30, and waited until 21:30 before trying to call 1st UK, however, there was only a voice mail saying they are not available. I waited another half hour before going to Budget to get a car. Over the past 3 days I have left 3 voice mails and 3 emails with “1st UK” to no avail. Looking on the WEB while being in the UK I have not been able to find “1st UK as an actual busines, although I can still pull them up when checking for car hires. I don’t believe this company exists, other than as one of the many internet scams. I am currently out 175. Compared to Budget/Avis/Hertz etc, this looked like a great deal, but as they say, “if it looks too good to be true, then it probably is”. 1st UK Car Rentals info is shown as: Suite 712 95 Wilton Road London SW1V 1BZ Tel (if you can) 44-0870-2415970 Fax 44-0870-2415974 email, [email protected] Web: www.1st-ukcarrentals.com regards Chris Desborough #6593
