The victims believe the moving company they hired is a fraudulent company.
The above incident is under investigation by APD investigators
Police recommend doing some research on any company before entering in an agreement with them.
Start with a simple internet search. Search for reviews of the company. When evaluating these reviews, look for more recent ones. Read the reviews; don’t just look at the ratings. See what other customers are saying about the business. Typically, people will write reviews for businesses that are really good, or really bad.
Check the business address of the company on a mapping service (i.e. Google Maps). Verify that the address is valid and that the business is located there. If you find a business located in a residential area, that should be a reason to search further.
The more you know, the less likely you are to become a victim.
