In addition to the scam Rooster mentions, the big one in South Florida - The Sun Sentinel did several stories about it - is on "local" moves:

Quote a price on the phone.

Show up and load up the truck.

Go to the new home/apartment.

Demand an exorbitant amount of money prior to unloading the truck, far in excess of what was quoted. Tell the person you're ripping off that according to the law, the stuff on the truck is the company's until they are paid, and this is what you are paid, blah blah blah.

Generally, people are so desperate to get their stuff, they pay anything.

FWIW, this is a very common scam in NYC. I haven't experienced it (I've only had trouble with the "oops you mean we weren't supposed to throw/drop that?" movers), but I personally know three people who have.
