This post is from an employee in 2012 showing a pattern of Michael Gatewood AND his father pulling this same PONZI scehem as Hurricane Cargo in Georgia:

When is someone going to do something about these people. I've talked to alot of officials and they said they would get right on it. I know it takes time to get the ball rolling, but *** these people are crooks and that place is working people 50hrs a week and some of them grossed a little over 300 dollars last week and they're selling trailers out the back door illegally. Not to mention that most of their *** is on consignment and they're going to leave alot of companies holding the bag. W.T. Howell; there is a *** good reason why Lippert Components Inc. will not even deal with them and they supply almost everybody. I mean come on enough is enough. I know about a month ago they were $50,000 dollars behind with ya'll. Gatewood's daddy told me himself they were $200,000 in the red. They don't even do inventory. When I mentioned it I got run off. I thought I was trying to help. When I got there it was almost a daily occurance that we'd build duplicate trailers. They don't even stamp the serial number in the weld shop. Before Alfred Harrell worked there a week they didn't even have a production board. He set it up and Mike Gatewood would come behind him and shuffle the board around until Alfred just got so frustrated that he quit. He and me had just left a company that we had built from the ground up and

PROOF this scam has been going on LONG before this and that MICHAEL GATEWOOD was and always has been the owner:
"I ordered the a 48' enclosed trailer back in May 2014 for a sum of $27,956.00. It was outfitting to the fullest, hence the price. Its been a dream of mine to get something like this when I started my business 15 years ago as a young adult. I called Husky Cargo and paid deposit of $6850.00. They called me 8 weeks later and said it was ready. Beforehand I had asked for pictures which they supplied. I drove all the way up to their previous location in GA to find a trailer that was crooked from the front to the end (think about the shape of a banana).
At this point I did not feel it was correct to take home a trailer that was not able to drive home safely. My dream trailer was quickly becoming a nightmare - I refused to take the trailer at the time, with promises from Husky that they would correct the finished trailer, build me a new trailer or refund me my money. I was assured by the head guy at the shop said they would fix it. I know how these things work it needed to be rebuilt. 2 weeks later I get a call from the owner Mike Gatewood (Aug. 2014) telling me he will build me a new trailer because he can't give me my money back. Then on Oct. 14 Mike tells me he hasn't started it yet, I said that's fine my business is now hurting because I needed this trailer for events and if he could please just give me my money back. At this point he said he could not until
