When you start the moving process, the biggest obstacle any person will encounter is finding the right moving company. Some people do not take the time to do their research and find a company with a legitimate business and real customer reviews. When that happens, people most likely find themselves in a moving company scam.
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star, Tituss Burgess, was a victim of a moving scam this past July. After receiving a confirmation over the phone with Franks Express, a New York City moving, and delivery service, to pick up a couch from his home, Burgess was tossed into a whirlwind of trouble. He received homophobic slurs and no service after refusing to post a review for the company until the job was done. It was later found, the man who Burgess was in contact with had no affiliation with Franks Express.
A moving scam can happen to anyone, so to prevent that or other scenarios from happening to you, here are some ways to avoid coming in contact with a moving company scam.
