Military community floods local moving and auction companies with complaints


THE FORECAST IS LOOKING BETTER FOR THE WEEKEND. DON WILL HAVE A LOOK IN A FEW MINUTES. BACK NOW WITH THE CHATTER ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT AN AUCTION OF UNCLAIMED PROPERTY. TOM: PEOPLE ARE POSTING ON FACEBOOK THAT THE AUCTION COMPANY IS TAKING ITEMS FROM MILITARY MEMBERS AND SELLING IT. THE COMPANY SAYS THAT IS NOT THE CASE. OUR REPORTER IS HERE TO CLEAR THAT UP. REPORTER: THE COMPANY FELT COMPELLED TO CLEAR — TO CANCEL THE AUCTION, SO WE WANTED TO CLEAR EVERYTHING UP. THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE, BECAUSE A LONGTIME BUSINESS’S REVIEW WENT FROM FIVE STARS TO ONE STAR BECAUSE OF THIS VIRAL AND INCORRECT FACEBOOK RUMOR. EARLIER THIS WEEK, GINA DANIEL — GENE DA NIEL’S COMPANY POSTED THIS LISTING. UNIQUE FURNITURE PIECES, HIDDEN TREASURES BEING SOLD. THEN COME OF THE FACEBOOK WITH FLASH BEGAN. ” STEALING FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR YOUR FREEDOM? REAL CLASSY.” THE POSTERS BELIEVED THE CRATES WERE LOST IN MILITARY MOVES, AND THAT THE MOVERS AND AUCTION COMPANY DECIDED TO PROFIT OFF THE CONTENTS INSTEAD OF CONTACTING THE OWNER. THAT STORY WENT VIRAL. BUT WE FOUND OUT IT IS CATEGORICALLY UNTRUE. IT IS UNTRUE AND IT HURT OUR FEELINGS, BECAUSE WE TRIED TO DO THE BEST WE CAN. OR SOMEONE TO CALL UP AND SAY INGRID THINGS TO YOU, IT IS UNCALLED FOR. REPORTER: SHE OWNS THE MOVING COMPANIES STUCK WITH THE CRATES. SHE DID NOT WANT TO BE ON CAMERA. SHE TOLD ME, AND I CONFIRMED WITH THE NAVY, PAID MOVERS WERE ASKED TO HOLD THE ITEMS IN STORAGE FOR 90 DAYS. AFTER THAT TIME WAS UP, THE SERVICE MEMBERS WERE SUPPOSED TO CLAIM THE ITEMS OR PICK UP THE TAB FOR CONTINUED STORAGE. THE BOXES, THOUGH, HAVE SET FOR 10 TO 25 YEARS. THE COMPANY MADE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT OWNERS, BUT THEY HAVE GONE UNCLAIMED AND UNPAID FOR. SHE IS OUT CLOSE TO SIX FIGURES. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE HAVE BEEN THERE FOR YEARS. WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO STORE IT WITH NO REVENUE FROM IT. REPORTER: NOW, SHE AND THE AUCTIONEERS WISH SOMEONE HAD ASKED BEFORE HITTING SEND. AND ADDING PEOPLE TO THAT BUYER , ONE GROUP READ THE PAPERWORK ON THE PAPER — ON THE BOX. THE OXEN THERE TELLS — THE AUCTIONEER SAYS HE TOOK THE PICTURE OF THE WRONG BOX. THE NAVY CONFIRMS THAT THEY HAVE SINCE TAKEN DOWN THE POST. WHEN THEY DO AUCTION OFF
