The Emerging Scam on Uship
In the ever-evolving auto transport industry, a new scam has surfaced, targeting unsuspecting customers on the Uship platform.
Individuals posting requests for vehicle, boat, or camper transportation on Uship are being approached by a fraudulent entity masquerading as Unlimited Auto Trans.
These scammers lure potential clients with the promise of low-cost transportation services, insisting on arranging payments outside the Uship system.
Unfortunately, after the payment is made, the scammers vanish, leaving the customers without their vehicles being picked up and no way to contact the supposed transporters.
Unlimited Auto Trans: Setting the Record Straight
It is crucial to understand that this scam has no association with the legitimate and reputable Unlimited Auto Trans company.
As a leader in the auto transport industry, Unlimited Auto Trans has never engaged in transactions through the Uship platform. Our commitment to integrity and customer service stands in stark contrast to the deceptive practices employed by these scammers.
