When it comes to finding a reliable company to get a certain job done, it is getting harder and harder these days to know where to turn. This is especially true when it comes to finding a reliable moving company and a recent Toronto police report has shown just how true this is.
The report outlines a rash of current moving company scams, stating that customers, after finding the potential movers online, contacted the company to set up their services. After a verbal contract was made for movers and a moving van, the company arrived on moving day only to have customers sign a ‘receipt,’ which was actually a new contract with new fees.
After signing, the movers would take the customers’ belongings to their new home, only to refuse to unload unless the new fees were paid, essentially holding their property hostage.
With the outbreak of these types of scams, Toronto police are advising individuals to be more aware of the risks and to investigate a company far more diligently before enlisting their services. These crimes are very unfortunate, and often leave victims with few options as far as recompense.
