Damn, That Move Was Expensive: Douchebag movers busted

Posted By on Mon, Jan 21, 2008 at 8:52 AM

A federal grand jury has indicted more than a dozen people in California and Florida for their role in defrauding and extorting fees from hundreds of residential moving customers.

The defendants allegedly offered extremely low moving estimates, picked up customers' property, suddenly jacked up the prices, than held people's stuff until customers agreed to pay the increased fees. Those indicted include employees of AY Transport, Inc. (also known as Progressive Van Lines and Midwest Relocation Services) and a moving broker named National Moving Network.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
