    They're holding over $33,000 of ours due to a load that was delivered 4 days late due to being stuck in a blizzard and shut down interstate this spring. Not only did they not pay that load, which receiver accepted, but now they came up with fictitious "costs and damages" totaling EXACTLY the amount of invoices my company has with them. Looking for a good attorney who might have experience dealing with these low life scum bags. Thank you in advance

    We did deliver late, but they accepted the load and we were in constant communication with them during the set back. Then they hold all of our money. I've been trying to resolve this issue for months now and have been getting properly jerked around. I'd stay away from them.

    What sort of documentation do you have, and what documentation have they provided you on the damages?

    I have all the rate confirmations and signed BOL's for all the loads delivered that were unpaid. They still haven't given me anything despite repeated requests.

    File against their bond?

    I think I saw something like this on the OOIDA membership documents they sent me.

    Also, how was the "communications" done? via phone or email? --- I hope it's via email (or a recorded line like google voice calling)
     
    KB3MMX and Bigrayon Thank this.

    Yeah I'd definitely file against their bond as a first step. This whole thing looks fishy as hell. Generally when a big company does something like this it's someone <3 rungs into the management structure trying to cover something up and NOT corporate policy.... No corporate policy is to put the underlings under so much pressure that some of them crack up and start doing things that are miles and miles over the line.

    Oh dear. Yeah, I'd be looking to file on their bond, too. You're getting jobbed.

    I don't do any loads from them, they run a boiler room brokerage business, I don't pull and have not pull loads for them in years, any time you called and they say how much do you need to make it happen, as soon as you give them a rate they come back with, he my coworker just got a bid for 300 less you will have to beat the to get the load, I told them the last I called I don't work like that keep your @@@@ing load, if we stop pulling there cheap loads they will go under, I would pull a JB hunt load over tql any day of the week, and most of JB hunt load are cheap, with one exemption, and that is when they cannot cover it that when you make them pay good luck getting your money

    This is very strange. Too strange.. Road closures always gave immunity for being late.
    Under what circumstances a broker can refuse to pay other than a filed claim? A double brokered load? A consolidated load (the ones that were not supposed to be consolidated under any circumstances)? A load that ended up being on a railway? But even so, if the receiver took the load then could they just not pay?
    Any business contract attorney should be able to handle this.
