Alamo rentals can be credited to Alaska. I'm not saying it would be retroactive and I'm not saying Alamo is the only one.

As per https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/terms-and-conditions:
if a Mileage Plan account is inactive for 2 years, Alaska Airlines may close the account, delete any mileage balance and reassign the Mileage Plan number. Deleted mileage can be reinstated for a fee for up to 1 year. To reinstate a Mileage Plan account please contact customer care.

FYI AA has audited a bunch of accounts who are using 3rd party receipts to earn miles where the names don't match.

Iíve never run into any issues having the miles credited to someone elseís account. In fact Iíve never even been asked for the name of the mileage account holder, I just ask for airline mileage account number XYZ to be credited for the rental.
The good days ah?

Why does DOC call it "Bogus"?
It it somewhere in the Terms, that it has to be in your name?

Sounds like some of the shutdowns were people who manually edited the info on the car rental receipt to work for their dates/names, which I guess makes them 'bogus'.

Is this actually true?

With Avis all you had to do was enter a FFN.
