This was the e-mail i received from zoomcar. Following is my reply.
Firstly, please be a little more specific on how "the car has been used in excess of the paid rental amount".
Secondly, "in accordance of the agreement duly verified and acknowledged by you"- this acknowledgement was a result of the harassment that i was put through that late in the night (2 am) without any proper justification of the penalty being levied against my account.
Despite repeated denial of any damage been done to the car during the time it was under my usage, i was harassed for pre-existing issues with the car.
Also, i clearly remember mentioning all the scratch marks and dents (Including the one held against me that night) to the staff on duty before taking the car from the pick up point. There were so many of these damages on the car that there was no point taking so many pictures (To be used as proof against false charges).
Hence, i request you to provide me any proof against the fact that i was not responsible for whatever usage is being referred to in excess of the already paid rental amount.
As per my knowledge, there was no damage done to the car. Henceforth, please do not harass customers this way.
