Hertz to Pay USD$168 million to Customers Falsely Accused of Stealing its Cars

Hertz has agreed to pay a USD$168 million settlement by the end of 2022 to 364 people who for years were falsely accused of stealing its vehicles, NPR reports.

The accusations that had resulted in arrests, felony charges, lost employment opportunities and even jail time were found to be largely due to rental extensions not being properly reflected in Hertz's computer systems and lack of verification.

Hertz, who had declared bankruptcy in 2021, had initially fought in bankruptcy court to keep the allegations under seal, before CBS News publicized some incidents.
