Type of a scam Moving
There was an ad on Craigslist for a free piano, when heard back, Prof McCarthy told us piano already made its way to Georgia, and he “left” it with moving company & all we would do is pay the route back to Orlando.
When called Strong Arms Moving, to speak to Mr Robert, no one answered. I started to look on Sunbiz to see business registration, found nothing. When finally got a hold of Mr Robert, I just that I was referred by a friend, for interstate moving. He texted me their website. There is a moving license number, MTR, which I googled it and that number belongs to a company in California. The best part of this scam is that they use the same website. Same layout, same reviews but of course, changing the location.
I’ve called that company, that is only permitted to travel in California, to let them know what was going on.
My husband was the one that intiated contact, and don’t think he will contact Mr Robert to find out how much would cost to bring the piano, after all I have found out about the fake business.
And yes, Mr Robert sounded like he is from Nigeria, and the call was just like a long distance call.
