Quoted from Promover.org which is the website for the American Moving and Storage Association:
Representatives from federal and state government agencies, law enforcement and the moving industry gathered for the second annual Moving Fraud Conference, sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The meeting provided an overview of progress in the fight against con artists and criminals who victimize consumers looking for an honest mover.
Though the number of complaints about interstate moves has risen slightly over the last three years, the number of hostage load complaints has dropped by almost 11 percent over the same period.
Take a look at some of the videos on the page about the conference.
