Beware of Fakes and Frauds

Consumer Voice - - Movers And Packers -

In July 2016, Delhi Po­lice busted a gang run­ning a fake trans­port com­pany im­per­son­at­ing a lead­ing pack­ers and movers firm, and ar­rested four per­sons who al­legedly duped sev­eral cus­tomers on the pre­text of pro­vid­ing low-cost ser­vices. The gang used to lure cus­tomers of­fer­ing low rates and then with­held the items un­less they paid an in­flated bill in the name of var­i­ous taxes. Around the same time, an­other gang was ar­rested from Meerut. This gang was pri­mar­ily into rob­beries. They would pose as a mover and pack­ers com­pany, get the en­tire house­hold/of­fice stuff packed, and run away with a loaded truck. Con­sumers are ad­vised to do a thor­ough check of the com­pany’s le­gal ex­is­tence and do a ref­er­ence check be­fore deal­ing with a new or an un­known en­tity.
