Thank you for your question and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.
Do you have a receipt from them confirming they have your car?
Have the police provided you with a receipt in writing that the car can be released?
What would it cost you per day to rent a replacement vehicle approximately?
Kind regards

I really hope you do not intend on charging me as you have not provided

me with any help or advise.

This appears to be an attempt to extract money by deception!

I will take this matter further if you process my card
