British couple Mark Higgins and Becky Szenk had a beautiful baby girl, and made a decision to move closer to Mark’s place of work, having bought a new pub. Wanting to find a mover quickly, Becky went on Facebook, where she came across a company owned by a man named Lee Green.
After speaking with him, she was impressed, and set up a moving date for his men to pick up their belongings. On the moving day, Mark and Becky were further impressed with the movers’ efficiency; within 45 minutes the truck was packed and ready to go to their new home.
They told the men they couldn’t get over how quickly they had packed up; one of the movers explained that they had multiple jobs to get to that day. The couple were waiting at their new flat for the movers to arrive, when they began to be concerned.
An hour later when they hadn’t arrived they knew something was wrong…it was! Lee Green and his moving company did not exist. They turned out to be a Facebook moving scam, whose chief goal was to steal people’s money and belongings.
In under an hour Mark and Becky had paid for all their worldly goods to be stolen! They and their baby girl were left with absolutely nothing; not even a stitch of clothing. In the video you are about to watch below you will hear them interviewed about what happened.
They are desperately trying to put their lives back together, thankful for the donations of strangers. Their sentimental belongings can never be replaced, and they have learned a very painful, yet valuable lesson when it comes to the dangers of the internet, and the need to get references from people you know.
