NOTES: Point of no return

Renting a really cool car might be a good way to make the the right impression on a hot date, or with a new client – but you’d better check the small print on what it might cost you. And you may well have to sue to get your R45,000 deposit back if you're dealing with Alan Ribnik of Cape Luxury Cars.

I don't understand how Mr. Mathew's ZAR 45,000 could be tied up like this. If he put the deposit on a credit card (and one would presume he did), why not simply dispute the charge and let the issuing bank do all the heavy lifting on his behalf, and let the bank deal with Cape Luxury Cars?

It sounds like a shady company, and I'm glad for the warning, though.
