Scam? Rented from Dollar and did the scratch & dent walk around, two scratches no dents. Upon return repeated the walk around but agent stooped way down under the rear bumper and proclaimed “new scratch”. I as Trump would say STRONGLY protested and he backed off. Be aware amigos.

The people who check cars in are sometimes scammers as well. Once (not Mexico but a Caribbean Island) the guy checking us in keyed our car while we were busy at the counter. Wanted a bribe to not report it. Best to stay with the guy/gal as they inspect and get the paper in hand or at least see the report.

If there are more than one of you, I'd leave someone with the car while the other goes in for the paperwork, just to make sure something screwy like that doesn't happen.
