The letter I received dated July 11, 2012 claims that I owe over $10,000.
The original amount was approx. $5,000, of which $2,000 I was disputing.
The U-haul Company charged my credit card $464.00 for eqyipment that I didn't use, and all my attempts to resolve this got nowhere.
Second, "Enterprise Car Rentals" charged my credit card $1500 on the rental of a car that I had for a week. I had spilled coffee on the front seat, and they claimed that they had to replace the upholstery! They also kept some of my personal property that was in the car when they came to pick it up! As I tried to retrieve my belongings, one of the guys jumped in the car and took off, nearly knocking me to the ground. I also tried to resolve this with the Enterprise Main Office and got nowhere.
It seems that once a business has your credit card number they can make any charges they want. Capital One told me to "take it up with the vendor", which had me running in circle with them and the "vendors" for months.
I would suggest that people stay out of Kitsap County, WA. The shipyard dumped toxic stuff in the surrounding water for decades
and this is where my nighmare began. It is now almost 11 years and I am still being haunted by it.
not only that, the Kitsap County Sheriff assaulted me in front of the UHaul (3 witnesses) and I nearly died. (suffocated)
Stay out of Kitsap County!!!
