Re: ALERT: Internic Moving Services and Jack Monier - SCAM-SCAM-SCAM!!!

You posted the same message thirty-two f'n times! What is wrong with you? Jack Monier doesn't run this site! Hell, I don't even know if reads it! I do know that somebody had to clean up the mess you left behind with after you were done throwing your little tantrum. One message is sufficient to get y...

Re: NY to DC move - DOT # & billing questions

I suppose it may be legal if it is a binding estimate and hourly rates for interstate moves are in the mover's tariff, however interstate moves using non-binding estimates must be based on weight. You can read this beginning on page 7, line 18 of the 2005 highway reauthorization bill: m Either way, ...

Re: can i get money for being a whistler blower?

Well first of all, whistle-blowers aren't really known for their excessive paydays or extravagant lifestyles to begin with, but moving industry crimes aren't glamorous enough for law enforcement to pay anyone to blow the whistle anyway.

Re: Interesting Proposal Addressing the Carmack Amendment

Thanks Fred, those are very good points! I may be reading more into your examples, or misinterpreting them differently than what you meant, but what I see is a valid concern for protecting the moving company from unwarranted claims by unethical clients. Where I may be misunderstanding you is because...
