Better Business Bureau Serving Eastern Oklahoma has sent a letter to the attorneys general of four states regarding the marketplace conduct and complaint history of a major car rental company based in Tulsa.

In the past three years, over 830 complaints have been filed with BBB against the company; all were handled by the BBB Serving Eastern Oklahoma as the designated Corporate Customer Service location for the company. A review of these complaints and allegations indicated a pattern of complaints in three major areas: Sales Practices, Billing and Collection, and Contracts (see attached letter for details). More than ten percent of the complaints were from consumers in two states, California and Florida.

“BBB has attempted to address the pattern of complaints with [the company] on several occasions over the past three years,” notes Amie Mitchell, president and CEO of BBB Tulsa. “The most recent attempt was on March 29, 2017, in a letter sent by certified mail. The business failed to respond. Because consumers are still coming to us with the same complaints, week after week, we felt we had no choice but to turn this matter over to law enforcement.”
