    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I have been trying to help a member on here trace some property that he shipped back to the UK from Spain but have come to a dead end here, but with the help of my son this member is not the only one to be scammed, I must make it clear that it might not be the same transport company the member used, This has happen from many countries people paying to get things transported and never show up at the other end. This is how they think it works the put an advert in the papers saying van going to wherever France , Germany England room for more goods, the phone number is a pay as you go number and cant be traced You call and ask for a price and they will say to you yes we have a drop of very near so that won't cost you a lot of money.once they have your property that's the last you see of it, My son has found 4 reports of this from Spain so far. So be very careful if you need to transport anywhere

    This scam has been going since transport ever bagan, was happening in the 70s that I know of. However as people put trust in online itís more likely to trap people.

    I always

    Send things as an email attachment...

    Sorry this is a serious thread

    I sent "half a house" abroad and used a "proper Company" and paid for insurance as well

    Cost me an arm and a leg and unfortunately one piece of furniture lost a leg
    Insurance paid a bit but their excess was a given % of the total value so the more I paid the more I lost

    Not a problem but as always insurance companies pay out as little as they can whether "fair" or not
