A hundred items in a box

Behind this traffic hid a delivery man working for an Ikea subcontractor already known to the police. Rather than delivering the furniture to the customers for whom it was intended, he claimed that the items had been damaged. Of course, this was not the case, and the furniture was then sold to individuals in Montpellier. As for the first customer who saw nothing coming, he ended up receiving the expected article after a complaint in good faith.

The couple finally recognized the facts in front of the investigators and a hundred articles were seized in a box that belonged to them. According to them, they would have made 10,000 euros in profits with their questionable delivery service. An injury assessment is still in progress on the Ikea side.
