Freight Shipping Scam Illegally References Leggett & Platt
Multiple freight carriers have reported hiring a freight broker who is illegally and fraudulently using the name “Leggett & Platt Global Supply Chain Solutions” and “L&P Transportation LLC” along with using an actual MC# and physical address that is associated with Leggett & Platt. The fraudulent Contract Load & Rate Confirmation contains phone numbers and e-mail addresses that are not associated with Leggett & Platt, such as
- and firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a scam.
The scam is sophisticated and continues to evolve, so other misrepresentations may be used to make it look as though the carrier is doing business with Leggett & Platt. These fraudulent freight brokers are not associated in any way with Leggett & Platt and Leggett & Platt cannot be responsible for any claims relating to this activity.
