1..NEVER PAY A MOVER A DEPOSIT FOR INTERSTATE MOVING! IT COULD BE THE START OF THE BIG SCAM
2. GO WITH IN HOME ESTIMATES ONLY.
3. DO NOT USE A BROKER.

Terrible, but I'm not surprised. Hoboken and Jersey city are just ripe with scams like this because the community is so transient no one cares enough to take these guys out.

I feel really bad for these movers. Thanks for posting.

Movinghelper you should retire from moving and go to work as an FMCSA enforcement investigator. You have more sources than Matlock.

It is unforunate that these movers were losing money to scammers, but kudos to them for being hands on enough to realize that something was amiss. I'd certainly like to know how this plays out.
