Two Plead Guilty in Moving Company Scheme
Two former employees of Nationwide Moving Company of Woodinville, WA, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, WA, to defrauding customers. The two were involved in a scheme of intentionally giving low-ball moving estimates to customers and then extorting additional money by refusing to deliver the customers’ goods once they are loaded on the truck. Both are scheduled for sentencing on April 23.
