I was trying to find a moving company and located one though 123 movers. I was skeptical about these companies. So, opted to hire one from an online service. I was in an impression that these third party do all the background check before letting moving companies register on them. However, I was wrong. 123 movers as irresponsible and do not carry their online business efficiently.
This company that I hired from 123 movers took my stuff and money and then tried to increase the charge. When I tried to confront them, they vanished. I further investigated about this company and discovered that the company was already involved in couple of scams.
If I could research and find those facts, why cannot 123 movers. Or else, they are totally indifferent to the security of their customers. The later seems to be much true. I did a lot of searching and found out that the company was registered with 123 movers with two different names and the first one was already under so many allegations.
Even after getting complaints from many customers, 123 movers let them advertise on its online site. On top of that, the company I was dealing with did not has the physical address. The police checked on them and could not trace them.
The owner has fled to Israel and was using 123 movers for another scam. How easy it has become for these scammers to shut one scam and start another. Is it so easy to get licence for scam or to declare oneself bankrupt to run away from all the lenders?
If it is, I think we need to re devise the law. I was scammed with a lot of money and had to invest a lot to get the stuffs that I lost with this company. The online websites are not always legitimate. 123 movers is a hub for scammers and a platform for those who are already rejected by customers.
123 movers does not do the their part and make their customer pay for its irresponsible behavior. I was not able to recover my stuff, after a rigorous try. Whom can I call incapable. Either the law that let these companies do what they want, or third parties like 123 movers that only thinks about its profit and leave its customer on the mercy of these con artist.
In both the cases, I was the one who was at loss. If you ever search for a moving company, check if they have a physical address and are old enough to be trusted. With ease of registration and licence formalities, many newbies get into the moving scam and get us into trouble.
If you find a price that seems too good to be true, listen to your insights. They would either run away with your stuff and money or will later increase the price and won’t deliver until you pay the extra money. So, be careful before choosing a company from 123 movers.
