JC Transportation - Colleen & Jeff Brown J & C Transportation scammed money

J & C TRANSPORTATION IS ONLINE BROKER THAT PROVIDES TRANSPORTATION SERVICE. WE HIRED THEM TO MOVE A TRUCK FOR US BACK IN JULY. WE FOUND THEM THROUGH TRANSPORTATION WEBSITE WWW.USHIP.COM THEY ACCEPTED OUR ORDER AND ABOUT A FEW DAYS LATER THEY ADVISED THEY HAVE A DRIVER TO DO THE PICK UP BUT THEY NEEDED TO BE PAID VIA WIRE TRANSFER. I DID NOT WANT TO BE LATE ON THE PICK UP AND I WIRED THE FULL AMOUNT TO THEM. I MUST MENTION THAT THEY REQUESTED TO BE PAID TO A PERSONAL ACCOUNT AND NOT A BUSINESS ACCOUNT. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RED FLAG. SURE ENOUGH, THE NEXT DAY THEY CALLED AGAIN SAYING THAT THEIR DRIVER CANCELED ON THEM BECAUSE HE DIDN'T HAVE THE RIGHT CREDENTIALS TO ENTER THE PORT. THEY KNEW IT WAS A REQUIREMENT AT THE TIME WE GAVE THEM THE ORDERS. I WAITED FOR 2 MORE WEEKS BUT THEY WERE NEVER TO ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER DRIVER. SO I HAD TO CANCEL THE ORDER WITH THEM AND ASKED THEM TO RETURN MY PAYMENT. A MONTH PASSED BY AND STILL NO REFUND FROM THEM. I CALLED THEM AND THEY MADE A STORY ABOUT THE POSTMAN STEALING THEIR MAIL AND THAT'S WHY I NEVER GOT MY CHECK. I ASKED TO SEND THE CHECK VIA FEDEX AND EVEN AGREED TO PAY THE COST OF FEDEX AND YET THEY FAILED TO DO SO. JEFF EVEN MENTIONED THAT HE'S DOING ME A FAVOR BY AGREEING TO RETURN THE MONEY TO ME. KEEPING THE MONEY FOR THE JOB THEY NEVER DID IS OKK WITH THEM, AND SENDING THE REFUND IS ACTUALLY A FAVOR TO THEIR CUSTOMER! NOW THEY'RE SIMPLY SCREENING MY CALLS AND NEVER ANSWER MY CALLS OR EMAILS. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND THEY OPERATE UNDER THE NAME "ONLINE FREIGHT SERVICES" BUT WHEN I CALLED THEM THEY SAID THAT COLLEEN BROWN HASN'T WORKED THERE FOR MONTH. THEIR NEW COMPANY IS "J & C TRANSPORTATION" BUT THIS COMPANY IS NOT REGISTERED IN VIRGINIA AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THEY DO NOT HAVE A DOT LICENSE WHICH IS ILLEGAL. LONG STORY SHORT – STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AND THESE INDIVIDUALS. THEY DO NOT OPERATE ANY TRUCKS, THEY'RE SIMPLY AN UNLICENSED AND UNREGISTERED BROKER AND THEY HAVE NO PROBLEMS STEALING MONEY AWAY FROM PEOPLE.

James Quinlan Celtic 1 Hauling stole money

James Quinlan Celtic 1 Hauling stole money
If you ever get involved with James Quinlan from Celtic 1 Hauling please, read this page below and never get involved with this guy. He pretends to be a legal boat transporter on uShip but he's violating a number of laws: 1. His DOT number 215**** shows as INACTIVE which means he's not allowed to legally transport any cargo. 2. He's hiding behind the business name "Celtic 1 Hauling" however, he never registered this business under his name. 3. More importantly - he steals money from his customers and I'm one of his victims. read below: James Quinlan at Celtic 1 Hauling was hired by our company to move a boat for us from Alabama to Florida. he requested to be paid in full because a lot of truckers get burned. we went ahead and sent the full payment and set up the pick up dates. he called a few days later saying that he was experiencing some delays but assured that it will be picked up and delivered on time. well, the time passed by and all we got was more excuses and more delays. and then he completely disappeared - not answering any phone calls or emails. and of course, he's not returning our money. I ended up taking him to a small claim court in Florida and he didn't even show up for the hearing. This guy is a crook and I don't even think he's mentally stable. Instead of apologizing and simply returning the money for the job he never did - he goes out and tells everybody that he did the job but never got paid and yet he failed to appear in the court to defend himself. go to my website and see the proof of the Court Judgment that was awarded to my company against James Quinlan from Celtic 1 Hauling. here's the link: http://international.carexshipping.com/SCAM-James-Quinlan-Celtic-1-Hauling-uShip.html
