Good news.......Wonder why they only found 1 in Florida, there are plenty more.....and the one listed in Atlanta as Atlantic Relocation is NOT the Atlantic Relocation that is an Atlas agent, but a wannabee with the same name....don't know how they managed to get the same name, but its a different company.

Still it's better than doing nothing...which is their usual way of operating. I know the fines are pretty meaningless...they usually don't even pay them. But...it's something...

yes, way better than nothing, and I noticed that a bunch of the fines were real money, up around $30,000.......I realize they may never pay, but it probably gets their attention.....the small fines, must be for minor infractions, maybe the big ones are hostage loads, which should carry the deportation penalty, about the 2nd offense.

Yes, at least two companies I remember people asking about on here recently: Mapquest Van Lines and Relocation Van Lines. They were considering using these companies.

Advantage Relocations in Georgia I believe is the never-licensed company operated by Desmond Campbell.
