Red Flags of Moving Fraud
More than 40 million Americans move each year for personal reasons and career opportunities. It's a significant event in anyone's life. Even under the best of circumstances, moving can be stressful. Learn how to avoid one of the most stressful situations that can arise by protecting yourself from dishonest "rogue" movers.
Most moving companies are legitimate businesses that do quality work. But in recent years, a growing number of complaints have been filed against interstate movers-and many of those complaints spring from the fraudulent practices of a small percentage of dishonest movers known as rogue movers.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has initiated a partnership with the Indiana State Police and the moving industry to make sure you have the information you need to protect yourself from moving fraud.
If you're planning a move, it's important to learn as much as you can about your rights and responsibilities.
