Meet Mark Higgins and Becky Szenk, a British couple who just wanted to move closer to to Mark’s place of work.
Being relatively young, their contacts list came a little lacking when it boiled down to having everything moved, so 22-year-old Becky did what many others have done before her – she went to Facebook for help. She quickly discovered a moving company that appeared to be very professional, with a good looking website and plenty of positive reviews. So, Becky decided to contact them and offer her business; a mistake that’s haunted her ever since.
She ended up talking to a man that let himself be known as Lee Green. His company looked professional and his ‘movers’ we’re all friendly according to her, so everything appeared to be as it should. Well apparently this wasn’t a moving company at all, but a scheme set up to take both your money and your household goods.
Within 45 minutes they’d taken everything the young couple had.
“I’ve never cried so much as I did on that day. I feel so distraught because they’ve taken my engagement ring and even the baby’s toys.”
I feel sorry for these people, and not just because their things got stolen. It’s just terrible knowing there’s people out there willing to do anything just to take advantage of someone. Hopefully with the word spreading we’ll be able to help this couple find their things!
