Missouri Couple Robbed Of Over $30K In Possessions By Scam Moving Company Hired On Craigslist 

  
A Missouri couple lost most of their things after they hired movers off Craigslist to take their belongings to North Carolina and got duped.

The couple hired a company that identified itself as “Robinson Moving LLC” after they saw an advertisement for the business on Craigslist, KTVI reported. They paid the movers $1,100 up front with an additional $300 promised once they delivered the items to the couple’s new home in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The U-Haul truck — and the couple’s estimated $30,000 worth of stuff — never made it to North Carolina, according to the news station.

One of the movers called to say the couple’s things needed to be moved onto a different truck but promised it would still arrive in Charlotte on time, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. After the couple got to Charlotte, they received their last call from the movers, who claimed the truck broke down on the highway a short distance from the couple’s new home, according to the paper.

The pair called police, who managed to track down a suspect using the phone number listed on the Craigslist ad. Authorities arrested Deandre M. Robinson, 33, but released him as they applied for charges, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The advertisement was for unwanted babies and promised mothers they could drop off their baby in a “baby box”.

Police said Elaine Williams, 47, of Cumming, told police her daughter wanted a baby and would get one with or without her help, so she decided to help. Williams was charged with domestic-unlawful advertisement/inducement for adoption of children.
