If it sounds too good to be true...

Excellent piece by Dateline NBC on the moving scam industry. Having had some family experience with this, I can assure you that this is not media hype. If anything, it understates the problem. Small moving companies show up when they feel like, take your belongings, charge whatever they feel like (regardless of previous estimates), show up whenever they feel like, and then charge whatever extra they feel like charging.

The government, of course, doesn't do anything about it. But if you want to smoke in a restaurant, don't worry: they'll be right there to stop you.
