On Thursday, August 12, Bothell Police recovered a stolen rental truck and arrested the driver.
Inside the truck: a lot of moving boxes and furniture that will now get to their rightful owners.
This may be part of a much larger moving-company scheme. The case is originated and is currently under investigation by the Salem Police Department.
In typical scams like this: Victims hire and pay what they think is a legitimate moving company. A truck hauls away their worldly goods – but it never arrives at their new home.
Instead, they may get a call demanding another payment. This time - it’s really big money. If the victim doesn’t pay, they never see their stuff again.
