    Structuring financial transactions?

    *Or perhaps next year give another gift to the same parent? What time frame will they look at for a repeated pattern?

    Structuring financial transactions?

    Hi All, I wanted to inquire whether any of you could shed more light on what the Structuring regulation entails. Here's some quick Wikipedia definition: Structuring is the act of parceling what would otherwise be a large financial transaction into a series of smaller transactions to avoid...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Got the receipt today from the gas station. Unfortunately, I/we did make that blunder of putting diesel. :( With this shocking oversight, I'm just glad that so far that the damage did not reach 4 digits.

    Yeah, hopefully the gas station can provide it tomorrow, to confirm whether we really made that incredible blunder. :(

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Great advice! The Damage Recovery, over the phone, said that if i pay they will send a close out letter and after that I will not be liable for any other claims. I have emailed both their damage recovery and risk management departments to make sure they're all consistent that this is the final...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    My MasterRental policy (which I believe only covers collision damage), states that it covers: - Reasonable loss of use charges imposed by the vehicle rental company for the period of time the rental vehicle is out of service. - Towing charges to the nearest collision repair facility. It does...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    I'm still awaiting the receipt from Dandy but I wanted to update you all that I got a bill from Alamo today with this breadkdown: Item Total Cost Amount Due Damage $379.95 Towing & Storage $250.00 -> I noticed there was a double charge of $125 for the same thing so I'm having them clarify...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Another update I wanted to share: I just spoke with the Admin Supervisor of the Alamo Risk dept., the one who sent me the initial note about the diesel damage. She said that although it may take up to 2 months for their insurance company and billing to work out the total charges, she doesn't...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Your note offered relief for sure and so did learning about the towing having been factored into the preliminary cost. As to whether that was all the towing charge or not, I have yet to find out. Hopefully not a 1.5k bill for bringing it from upstate new york to the newark airport for 3.5 hours...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    That's what I'm thinking too, that it seems fair for a "preliminary" cost. They did say that they are still working out all the repair charges so there will be more coming out in the final bill. I also remember having read a post of a similar misfueling case with an Alamo rental car. Their...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Understand. I only responded to the comment earlier from Nathan Witt about this, "Diesel fuel pump nozzles are quite a bit larger than their gasoline counterparts and will not fit in any newer gasoline-powered car’s fuel filling port. You’d have to have held the nozzle against the outside of the...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    I really can't sleep because of this (and I'm already burnt out from work). I just can't wrap my head around how I could have done it because I've kept in mind to choose Regular. I know I had my husband fill in the fuel as I often did in the past (not sure whether I grabbed the nozzle and handed...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    I submitted a claim online to MasterRental just now. The options I saw for the claim included collision, theft, or gas/tire damage. No other option. I just selected the gas/tire one and then one the next page explained the situation. Eek!!

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Thanks for all your responses. I have yet to receive the bill but yes will certainly ask for the breakdown tomorrow. Someone from the risk department of Alamo just said, "I am reaching out regarding the claim that was written on your rental car. I understand that there were some issues you...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Hi Neil, Thanks for your quick response. To be honest, I really don't recall having put Diesel. I was totally shocked when Alamo said this. I also don't have the receipt to even verify whether that was true. My husband (who doesn't drive as he's used to subways in NY all his life) helped me...

    Possible to dispute diesel damages on Gas car or claim credit card collision damage waiver insurance?

    Alamo just informed me that the reason why the car I rented broke down a week ago was because I put diesel in it. I was obviously shocked because I try to be careful and go for "Regular". Perhaps I was distracted and we happened to be in an old gas station in Upstate NY. I haven't driven in a...
