So now I’m really blowing up @Avis' lines. Remember the business card I was given for someone at the branch to follow up with? Out of service. Another local number I was given: no pick-up and doesn’t take VMs. Customer service reps refusing to connect me directly with the branch.

I’ve made tons of calls, wasting hours trying to connect directly with the Newark branch. I’ve been given misleading information on how to reach it and even been hung up on by customer service reps. The local number doesn’t even directly connect to any employees or managers there

And to add insult to injury, @Avis has proceeded to bill me as if I returned the car AND they’re charging me late fees! All without any acknowledgement that they repossessed the vehicle and that I’ve been trying to reach out to them for days.

If you’ve read this far, it means you care. I appreciate you for taking the time. Please retweet this thread to get @Avis attention and to warn people traveling that this can happen to them.

For all the trouble I’ve been caused: losing my rental, filing a police report, worrying my neighborhood, being told I was liable for a $20K+ car, hours wasted trying to reach @Avis, and being charged full price + late fees. I just want @Avis to do the right thing.

OMG the outpouring of care, concern, and solidarity is AMAZING! I appreciate you all! Because of your voices, Avis has responded! I just got a call informing me that Avis will refund the full charges including the undeserved late fees.

Avis is also escalating and investigating this matter. Now while my charges are rightfully being refunded, the overall ordeal has yet to be redressed! And I will not let up. Being made whole will require a lot more than just a refund!!!

The @TeaneckPD has finally assigned a detective to my report so I've given Det. Florio my entire account. @Avis repo'd my rental, told me I was liable for its disappearance, dodged and charged me even after I proved they did it, admitted responsibility only when this went viral.

I've asked him to reorient this investigation to whether unlawful activities or operations were performed by any agents of the company and additional collaborators, and whether there might be additional victims.

Replying to @tarikhcampbell
Among so many awful aspects of this ordeal, it really feels like a form of harassment! Towards their own *customer*, wtf!!!! @Avis
