CBP case against Charleston Freight Service

First off - I am a MESSENGER, not affiliated in any way just passing along some information to anyone who may benefit from it.

So here it is...

Apparently the CBP folks in Charleston have been alerted to a potential/alleged scam by Charleston Freight Services. Who allegedly charged for steam cleaning of imported trucks and never actually performed the services, allegedly.

There apparently is a criminal case being filed by USDA/CBP that may or may not involve refunds to people who used the service and then potentially had to pay twice or more.

There is also apparently another CES service provider in Charleston now.

I have no dog in the fight - just passing on so someone may benefit by doing some more research, or contacting the port authority...suggest maybe contacting:

Byron D. Miller

If you want/need contact information PM me as I don't think it is right to post up on a website.

Wow. I just paid $1800 for snail removal on 2 trucks about 10 days ago. I asked the company if they could send me pics of the snails so I would know what to look for the next time I'm purchasing trucks abroad and they said "sure if we find any." Damn ghost snails!!
