Vogt Relocation is one of those moving companies with reviews that contain phrases such as “my sister lost at least $20,000 worth of property” or they “ruined our bedroom furniture and scratched all of our newly finished hardwood floors” but their latest dirty trick is almost unbelievable.
Seynique Smythe paid Clarence “Bruno” Vogt in July to move all her belongings, including her car, from Chicago to Maryland. She has yet to see her belongings but Berwyn police recovered her car.
According to the police report the car was impounded after Clarence Vogt was pulled over driving her vehicle. When she returned to Chicago to collect the car Vogt had put 1,500 miles on the clock and to make matters even worse over the following 3 weeks she received $600 of fines from the Illinois Tollway.
The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) that regulates movers say they have had numerous complaints about the company and that Vogt has 23 citations and owes $10,000 in fines.
Why this criminal has not been jailed is a mystery.
