Woman says she was scammed by moving company

A woman claims says she was scammed by a Brossard moving company when trying to get her belongings from Calgary to Montreal, and she's not the first.

Rochelle Robinson says Mega Moving and Storage picked up her belongings and 3500 dollars, but then disappeared.

“I called and I called and I called and I called,” Robinson said.

“I was going out of my mind wondering if I was actually going to get my stuff. I was in a totally empty place it was very, very difficult.”

Her belongings finally arrived a month later, but a lot of it was damaged and some items weren't hers.

It's not the first time someone has reported problems with Mega Moving and Storage.

In February, Longueuil police received a complaint from a couple who said it took over five months for the company to deliver their belongings.

In that case, police had said it was a civil matter and not a criminal one and therefore no charges were laid.

The consumer protection office says the only thing you can do in a case like this is to sue the company in small claims court, which Robinson and the other couple, both say they’ll be doing.

    I also had a nightmare move with this company and they tried to sell all my stuff to pay off bad debts they had. They disappeared and refused to give me my money back when they defaulted on the move. It took me 2 months to get my stuff back and then I had to hire another mover.

    This is a totally unprofessional organization and they are thieves.

    Small claims will provide a moral victory and not much else in Quebec. The exercise will probably cost more money than will be realized. Sad. Other option? Share the word.
