Beware of these people, they are scammers.
My wife and I have just recently become unemployed and need to relocate from the property we are renting at the moment, money is very short and moving via a letting agent requires the usual up front deposit, referencing fees etc etc which isnt cheap, we thought we had found a way around when we went on findaproperty.com and saw properties on there which said the landlord would take dss tenants, we clicked on the contact advertiser and up come the netmovers page, they promise you the world and give you nothing, firstly they told us that they would do all the searching within the relevant postcodes for us and contact the agents on our behalf,
no need to worry about the deposits etc as the governments 'deposit gaurantee scheme' would cover this, all that was required is a 'one off' payment of 49.95 and they would do the rest, we was told to sit back, not to worry and relax, "we will have you moved in no time".............one week passed and nothing, I rang the number and spoke to some dumb a*s yank that didnt seem to know anything and was insistant on calling me 'hun'....very unproffessional for a scammer..........we were promised viewings of plenty of properties within the first few days but nothing was forthcoming from this bunch, not a text, email or phone call.....nothing. Two more days passed and another phone call was made to 'Kelly'.....I got the american one again and said that they hadnt managed to phone us because they all were suffering from sore throats........sore throats from ripping people off no doubt..........sore throats dont stop people from sending emails or texts me thinks!!......
A quick google of 'netmovers complaints' turned me to this site and now I'm able to warn other people of this bang out of order scam which is taking money which is short supply from people that can ill afford it and face a situation of becoming homeless thanks to the time wasted by contacting netmovers.
The office of fair trading, which, and lancashire CID are my next ports of call in my quest with dealing with this bunch of low life no hoping scum of the earth rip off con artists, they deserve to hang high in the midday sun for what they do to innocent and law abiding people who find themselves in a situation that is not akin to which they are accustomed!
