Three Brooklyn Movers Fined $1.4 Million for Extortion Scheme

This is what I am talking about. Here is a quote from the article;

“The men were convicted by a jury in May following a six-week trial in connection with a scheme to lure customers with artificially low estimates and then later hold their household goods hostage until large additional payments were made. It is estimated the men extorted at least $437,000 from more than 100 victims. “

From the New York Times, where you can read the complete story from 2003. This is an illustration as to why you should ask friends, coworkers and families for recommendations when choosing Atlanta Movers. Even on-line reviews are often faked. In Atlanta, I have noticed one large local mover and one small local mover faking reviews every day. When you see the same general five star review every day under a new google login that has no other activity, it is obvious that these are not real moving customers

When judging reviews on-line, lean toward services like yelp.com, home reports, Nextdoor and Angie’s List. Especially at Angie’s List they make an effort to make sure moving companies don’t just fake their glowing reviews, that reviews are left by real moving customers. Bing, Yahoo and Google are amazing search tools for doing internet research, but they are putting no effort into policing the practices of some un-ethical movers to leave glowing reviews of themselves. If they cross that line, what might they do to put you at risk?
