Mr. Tevel Bennoon and FLorida Southwest Van Lines moving company are criminals. 

The company will charge your credit card immediately after they have control of your household goods.  Then they will notify you of a problem with the credit card or their merchant account.  

They will instruct you to do a charge back to your credit card.  Then you will be instructed to wire the same amount or more to a personal account before delivery is made.  This is the point where you get that sickening feeling in your stomach knowing that you will never see your belongings again.

This company has threatened to auction our HHGs on several occasions.  The first was scheduled for 7 August 2010 and the second for 24 October 2010.  During this time, the criminals are increasing the amount owed because they are charging me $800.00 a month for storage.  

The company only has 1 truck but I failed to do my proper research.  Do not hire a moving company from the internet.  In fact, don't hire a moving company at all.  Your only way to be safe is to rent a U-haul truck and drive it yourself or possibly use PODS.COM

This company has used so many alias's that going to court would only be a waste of money in lawyers fees.  That is because this company has used more than 6 different names to rip off consumers and their goods.

I have notified every government agency that I can think of, including the FBI.  Every agency responds the same way.  Sorry, this is a civil matter.  It sounds like criminal activity to me when a company extorts you for more money.  No wonder criminals get away with everything.

AUTHOR: Sal D. - (United States of America)

Mr. Sleaze-Bag Tevel Bennoon, owner of Florida SW Van Lines in Ocala, FL, is an absolute disgrace and poor excuse of a human who is running a giant, heartless scam operation. He is sadly and shamefully holding the people's possessions ransom and demanding greater than agreed upon monies in exchange for their life belongings. He is listed countless times with the BBB and is not accredited and just a simple search
will bring you to many other sites depicting this sleaze-bag's MO and heartless motives. Please do yourselves all a very big favor and stay completely away from this pure, waste and disgrace to society and his well thought out scam organization! I had this PURE WASTE Thankfully cited thousands of dollars by
the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Division of Florida and every single one of his victims Needs to follow the same route and contact as well.

Please feel free to contact me if I can hopefully be of any further assistance.

Best Regards,
