Moving Company Owner Pleads Guilty to Defrauding Customers
On November 1, 2013, Yaron Roni Levin, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in Colorado District Court.
Levin is the owner of Movers USA/Golden Hand Movers. He admitted to luring in customers with extremely low moving estimates and then fraudulently inflating the price of transportation. When customers refused, or were unable to pay, Levin refused delivery and often threatened to auction their household goods until the inflated price was paid.
The investigation identified over 75 victims. Levin routinely doubled quoted estimates for an average increase of $2,000 to $5,000, although some victims were charged as much as $10,000 over initial estimates.
We are conducting this investigation with the FBI, with assistance from the FMCSA.
