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?

As being a society most of us tend to try this for many factors. This includes trips, furniture, and items we wish. However, it is advisable to separate the wants out of the needs. When you are working to raise your credit score you really have to make some sacrifices.

  7. What is up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I have not seen before, and I do not think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,”” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what is in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven”” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk”)

    Barak “O”bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw”)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama is home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!

  8. I am amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that is both equally educative and
    amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
