Complaint Review: Scotlynn USA Division - Indianapolis Indiania
Scotlynn USA Division Jake Shaw –Domestic Transportation Specialist Jake Shaw and Scotlynn USA Division deceptively and intentionally scammed and defrauded a small trucking company and has a pattern Indianapolis Indiania
On October 26th, 2019 at 12:32 pm Eastern Time, Matthew Brey employee at Scotlynn USA Division requested and negotiated hiring the Active Trading Society trucking division to rescue and help out on pickup and multiple stop delivery on multiple days (a frozen refriderator load), generally an expensive pricing usually averaging $1500 per day.
The saleman seemed nice and honest and we made a deal for just under 2k (saved him about $1000 dollars) after some negotitation he thanked us very much and sent out a confirmation and went on further to thank us for a 100% performance track record with Scotlynn, and he additionally said this load was one of Jake Shaw loads and he really appreciate the pricing we are giving and Jake should "quote on quote" be able to discuss lots of northeast and other shipments at a later time.
So everything moves right on along as a small trucking company we specialize in critical ontime freight orders and express orders and refriderated orders, we completed stop 1 on this order, both EARLY AND ONTIME, then also arrived at the 2nd stop to deliver and was advised that the broker screwed up on the appointment and also screwed up on the previous appointment on friday before they even hired us.
We notified Scotlynn ( NOW LISTEN TO THIS EVERYONE) we notified Jake Shaw on a business line/recorded line, he comes on, thanks us, says that his load is screwed up, says he is working on a reschedule a redelivery for this 2nd Stop. Keep in mind the trucking company has performed masterfully and above expectations, over achieved on contract, and is inline with its 100% history at Scotlynn brokerage.
Heres what comes next, discussion of detenion, layover, redilivery, or another delivery to an alternate location. At this time I forward the issue to our Administrator Ms. Karuiki, she advises any additional new delivery for the day the rate will be $1000.00, that she needs an updated rate con, the current one has no new delivery date , times etc.
Jake Shaw again on a business line first states, "AW man, i then lost money already on this from the previous appointment, its not you all fault your doing a good job, im sorry for all the delay, Im not going to pay more money, I got to make some money" Our Admininistrator held her ground equally, and pointed out please stop being greedy with your margins everyone knows a reefer van averages $1500 and up a day, even if we agreed to you hiring us on a different delivery location, new order $1000 is low rate, and we are requesting $1000 for any new delivery, and or a new redilivery and will need detention, layover, all the normal factors that go into a situation like this.
If you can't figure it out and you need this cargo kept at frozen temperatures we will need to refuel the van or put in a cold storage.
So after about 4 hours, Jake comes back with this response......ACTUAL VERBATUM COPY AND PASTE ( I am working on this right now, the reciever put us in a complete pinch I am in a meeting with the owner of my company and client over the phone for 20 minutes to figure out an option, Please give me some time to resolve the option.
That was his first response , the next response was this
After speaking with upper managment I have gotten approval for the following, Per your demands we will pay the $1000 to complete the delivery of this load into 20 theodore conrad drive
Must have matching seals, etc
So our administrator Ms Karuiki signed off on an updated rate confirmation and responded ok, we delivered again EARLY AND ONTIME arrived, and the reciever said the broker was screwed up again, and the driver wasnt unload until the late afternoon resulting in further detenion time and pay owed by the brokerage. Scotlynn thanked us for delivering and doing a great job (there tracking dept)
****Time to pay*****
After completion our billing agent followed up to confirm billing, was first told somethining very wierd, he was told, "Oh Mr. Jake Shaw made a mistake on agreement of $1000 he was supposed to only pay $200.00. Then the billing agent Mr. Fernando reviewed the email that Jake Shaw sent to everyone about the upper management spill etc, and provided that to billing and he factored in good faith.
Listen up everyone here are the other wierd things that occured that morning when time to bill came, Jake Shaw was informed he owes even more money for the detenion time it took to get unloaded at stop 2, his appt time went way over/another screw up.
At that time Time Jake Shaw says (again on a business line) he says oh sorry about all the detenion, this was just a screwed up load for me paying, and for you waiting. This is what he says on the line. All Audio will be put on a site so you can hear audio files, on this site we can only share the in writing part.
So thats what he says on the line, but check this out, this is what he writes subsequently,
First he acts like he is missing pages on the BOLS....he attempts to stall everyone out for 3 hours, he claims he is missing one page....(each stop had exactly 3 pages, so 6 total) not only did we send multiple times, but our billing agent, so we all have all the same documents, but Jake Shaw pretends as if we are missing one sheet.
The feel on this as it is common for the greediest middle - men in the industry who try to exploit the small trucking companines who drive and do the work, and they - the broker attempt to steal money by charging actual direct shipper a high rate, and attempting to swindle the trucking company driver by any means neccessary normally they use tactics like a late fee, something wrong on paperwork, etc.
We were so perfect and so aware of the sneaky greedy ones, we were on guard, he couldnt find anything, nor his hopes of late delivery or anything, he had nothing to use. SO GUESS WHAT THIS NEXT MOVE WAS,
He said and sent a carrier relations rep to call our Administrator and myself to say oh Jake only was going to pay you $1000 that he agreed to because he had to get load delivered anyway he could and didnt want to risk it going to a cold storage. He is not going to pay what he promised and what he stated upper management of Scotlynn agreed to in writing and on our business lines.
So here at the Active Trading Society, LLC, we are getting this out to all Trucking Companines and also sharing with all the independent operators and OOIDA association, DOT, and so many others. If this has occured to you please share your story with us directly, we are asking for a $100,000 fraud penalty case, others who would like to join in this action and tired of greedy brokers stealing money.
NOT ALL ARE GREEDY, THE MAJORITY ARE NOT GREEDY, BUT WHEN YOU HAVE THOUSANDS OF BROKERS ONE LIKE THIS REALLY HURTS THE FIELD, LETS NOT DO ANY BUSINESS WITH THIS ONE, WE HAVE A NETWORK OF GOOD BROKERS AND ITS EASY TO START YOUR OWN BROKERAGE, LETS COME TOGETHER AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT GUYS LIKE HIM. call or text your story anytime to 2408011844, join me on this fraud case.
