There is a new scam that is becoming quite common in Texas. Two individuals got recently scammed by a moving company they hired to move them. What happens is that they hire the moving company to move them and when the truck arrives at the destination, the company demands a payment significantly higher then what was agreed upon. In both cases the two individuals only did a verbal agreement. There are actions that could be taken to make sure that one does not get scammed. Some of the key things to do include: Getting a written contract drawn up, verifying that the company is insured, and making sure the driver has a commercial driver’s license. The DMV in Texas has set up an online site where people can verify information on various moving companies to help individuals out.
