Oh boy, hornets nest has been stirred...what a mess! Here's another good story for PCS season.
The military family social media space went wild today when a auction company in Chesapeake, Virginia advertised an upcoming auction of 105 containers of over 78,000 lbs of “Unclaimed Shipments from Overseas” belonging to military members and stored at Bay Area Movers, Inc. The Facebook post advertising the auction has since been deleted.
“These Shipments are unclaimed household goods / personal property of military members who were stationed in locations such as Italy, Germany, Spain and Bahrain,” the Gene Daniels Auctions sitesaid. “The contents of thee shipments have not been seen and containers have been sealed since originally packed overseas.”
UPDATE: Auction Canceled, Officials Blame Chaos on 'Bad Decisions'
