Additional Complaint Information
BBB files indicate that this business has a pattern of complaints showing that consumers had unknowingly or did not approve a compliance agreement regarding processing fees relating to vehicle violations from rented vehicles from 3rd party business contracted with this business.
Violation Management Services responded to this pattern of complaints with the following statement:
"The service fee VMS charges the renter's credit card is the fee for processing tolls, parking citations or traffic violations. This process includes the research to determine the responsible renter, the mailing and notification of the violation to the responsible renter, the mailing and notification of the responsible party information to the issuing agency, customer service support, and the follow-up to ensure the violation is settled. The renter signs agreement to VMS services in the rental contract.
Parking, toll, and/or traffic charges have a potential of putting our clients' entire fleet of vehicles in jeopardy of being booted, towed, impounded and/or encumbered by DMV registration holds. In order to protect their fleets and renters from having their vehicles booted or towed (even if they are legally parked), VMS must promptly deal with all notices."
