Moving is always a hassle but it gets a lot worse when you’re being scammed. That’s what happened recently to a Carl Junction family.
Stephanie Garland of the Better Business Bureau says disreputable movers advertise their services on websites. Once you’ve signed a contract, they begin stalling, forcing you to sign more contracts and pay more money. But Garland says … it doesn’t stop there.
“In a lot of cases, they’re holding the belongings hostage for anywhere from a month to two months,” she says, “so families are literally sleeping on the floor as they’re waiting to get their stuff back.”
