Another ZooZ victim, Katie, sends in her horror story with Mainline Moving/ZooZ Transportation… and all I can say is “Wow.” With all of these stories coming in, I’m starting to feel like I made it out of this lucky.
But Katie also has done some research and believes that the following companies are probably all the same. Note: I cannot confirm this list.
- Flat Price Moving & Storage
- Four Seasons Van Lines Inc.
- Universal Moving and Storage
- Sunshine moving
- Moving Direct Van Lines
- Hercules Moving
Also, please be aware that Budget Van Lines (a moving broker) can possibly contract out jobs to ZooZ transportation. The main supervisor is friends with Shimon Sason and Erick Thomas. I spoke with her directly to get them to attempt to drop ZooZ from their list of transportation companies, but she basically said no way.
If you’re a representative of one of these companies and you wish to refute these claims, by all means post a comment.
She also adds this:
Zooz Transportation has several addresses, one in Reno, NV, one in Las Vegas, NV, one in Van Nuys, CA, one on Rock Springs WY, and another in Valley Village, CA. I believe all of the companies listed above are fraudulent moving companies operated by the same individuals operating Mainline. Shimon Sason is apparently the CEO of Mainline and I believe he is Leon. When I was on the phone with him I asked him his last name and he said “Smith”.
There are multiple sites online that claim this man is a scammer so I think that is why he calls himself Leon as I have told them I found scam reports and I knew that David and Simon were the owners of Mainline and that this was a scam. I also found an ad on Craigslist where they were hiring sales people. It lists the following email: email@example.com which I am assuming is Shimon Sason’s and numbers to call Leon.
They had purchased the Mainline company when it had an A+ BBB rating and within there contract they had the right to use the name Mainline for ten years. I believe these people do this regularly in order to convince consumers that they are a good company and to use their services. Then extort money out of the consumer and eventually sell their stuff on Craigslist. When I typed in the phone number David gave me for his “east coast manager” named Eli who was supposed to know when my shipment would arrive (before they wanted the $1500) the search results list several expired listings for items for sale on the New Jersey Craigslist with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. I think this is a huge scam, a ring of fraudulent companies with who knows how many victims. These people do not have facilities and trucks; they have access to the internet. Please investigate this and help.
