On January 24, 2011, the District Attorney’s Office for Santa Clara County, California filed a felony complaint charging Eran Bar and other individuals with conspiracy and grand theft. Investigators believe that Bar and his co-conspirators illegally operated a moving service under several different fictitious business names.
Bar filed documents with the Santa Clara County Recorder’s Office, California to operate as Bekins Moving & Storage and BMS Van Lines, and also conducted business under the name of Advanced Moving Company. According to court documents, between August 2008 and December 2010, Bar and his co-conspirators solicited business for Bekins Moving & Storage, BMS Van Lines and Advanced Moving Company, with the intention of defrauding their customers. Bar and his co-conspirators provided estimates and accepted money from numerous customers for moving services, when they had no operating authority to conduct household goods moving services from the California Public Utilities Commission.
Bar was born in Israel and was last known to be residing in San Jose, California.
