The US government has recently indicted the owner of Golden Hands of Colorado for a long list of charges including extortion and theft. This came after a couple of Federal Bureau of Investigation posed as customers and entered into a moving contract with the company. Already armed with video evidence surrendered by real customers, the Feds went undercover and discovered the scrupulous practices of Golden Hands.
According to reports, there usually is an online company that books moving deals at very low prices that homeowners simply find too difficult to refuse. Once the deal is booked, they farm the jobs out to real movers who then jack up the price that their customers have to pay. It is at this point when people are made to pay much more than what was initially agreed upon. Since the movers have their belongings, these homeowners do not have much of a choice but to give in to the demands of the movers.
Authorities are advising people who are planning to hire moving companies to take out their prescription glasses from GreatEyeglasses.com and review the terms of their moving contract thoroughly. Legitimate movers would be able to send their representatives to their customers’ homes to make an accurate estimate of the moving job. These companies would also have provisions in the contract that protects the customers against undue increases in the initial contract price.
