Re: Auto Notruf Zürich - SCAM?

People are always parking in the little courtyard where my office is and each time there's a rogue car, someone from one of the surrounding companies pops out to check, pops back maybe ten mins later to see if it's gone and then, finally, might call it in with the towing company. More often than not it's between 30 mins and an hour BEFORE they call them, depending on how badly they need the space freed up.

I've certainly never seen a tow truck poised round the corner, and they normally take 45 mins to arrive at our "hotspot".
It looks like who ever owns the private, non-public parking space has given the towing company full rights and discretion to tow anytime anyone. no call needed. With CHF 400 or more per car it is indeed a lucrative "business". The press words such as "dorne" and "vulture" to describe the towing companies behavior.
