TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Attorney General Ashley Moody announced a moving company operating in Florida will be banned after deceiving customers. The state also obtained a final judgment of more than $20 million after a week-long trial.
Ohad Guzi owned eight Florida moving companies, mainly operated under the following company names: All USA Van Lines Inc., Moving Group, Inc., Top Movers, Inc., Guzi’s Investments, LLC, Cross Country Movers, LLC, 24/7 Moving Services, Inc. and Emoving Company.
“This wide-ranging, deceptive moving scheme victimized people all over the United States, including many here in Florida, by adding excessive charges to the quoted price, advertising professional moving services that the movers did not provide, falsely promising secure handling of household goods and hiding bad reviews by using a variety of misleading company names,” Moody said.
The company would low-ball moving estimates and then increase the price significantly on the day of the move. They established delivery dates with no intention to deliver the goods on that date. The company did not unload and load goods like promised and employed unskilled movers.
The businesses also used many fictitious names that were deceptively similar to nationally-known national U.S. moving companies. Guzi personally used at least six different aliases.
“I am grateful to my Consumer Protection team for putting a stop to these outrageous practices and holding moving companies accountable,” she said.
