Fraud Packing and Moving Companies on a Roll, Exposed!
If you are shifting your goods through any random packing & moving company, then beware, because it is very likely that the company booked for shifting the consignment, would evade with your goods and money, and never shift it actually, thereby, leaving you waiting for your valuable possessions to be shifted for the entire life. There are lots of fraud companies working in this sector, reaching out to public via internet and other mediums of information access and beguiling people by showcasing themselves as an agent company or as a company associated in one way or the other with the brand companies, and enticing them to avail their services at very less prices. Such low prices and unfairly displayed brand associations compel customers to avail such fraud company’s services, but at what cost – at the cost of their precious goods possessed over lifetime and hard-earned money.
Recently, such a case came into the limelight in which Mr. Hitesh Arora hired a company with the name similar to Agarwal Packers and Movers Limited, i.e., Agarwal Shifting Solution (P) Ltd. for moving its consignment from Mumbai to Delhi. To Mr. Arora, Agarwal Shifting Solution (P) Ltd, with the domain www.agarwal-xyz-packersandmovers.com on the search engines, falsely claimed to be a company of Agarwal Movers Group with an address L-117, Mahipalpur, Old Rangpuri Road, New Delhi- 37. More than 20 days have already been passed, but Mr. Arora has not received his consignment in Delhi or any information regarding the same. When on searching more about the hired company’s credentials and tracing it at its address, it was found out that there has not been any office of the company at the mentioned address. However, the riveting part is that this packing company has published all the requisite packing and moving documents to sustain in this business and capture the customer’s attention and deals fraudulently.
At its initial investigation stage, police has lodged an FIR No. 1229 Dt.12/08/2014 against a suspect named Abhishek and has booked a case under section 407 and 507. Other culprits and all the other masterminds are yet to be tracked down.
