Estimated Total Value of Loss : $20,000.00

Details of the incident : Customer contacted us through email and set up the rental four days prior. Did not seem high-pressure, and not rushed. If anything, too calm. He provided a working New York phone number and an address that appeared residential on Google Street View. He submitted rental payment by credit card the same day he picked up, and paid for TWO days. This caused us not to flag his account for a second review before approval. He provided, in person, his identification. It was a New York drivers license. It matched the address on file. We scanned it. It appeared legitimate but the police department has informed us that it is a forgery. He submitted temporary insurance through InsureMyEquipment.com, for $60,000, despite us only requiring $20,000. We verified the certificate. We presumed the $60k was to cover other equipment that weekend. Now that we are comparing notes, we think the $60k may have been carried over from the renter's previous thefts, for example the Tag Lighting theft in Kansas from a week ago.
