How it happened

How it happened

Becky Szenk, 22, and her fiancé Mark Higgins had booked a removal worker advertised as Lee Green to help them move from their flat to the pub which Mr Higgins manages in Walsall Wood, West Midlands. But after the two workers loaded up the rental van, they drove off with the entire contents of the couple's flat - including the fridge freezer, washing machine and Ms Szenk's engagement ring - and were never seen again. These movers had been hired over Facebook.

Miss Szenk said the family have been left 'heartbroken'. 'They were supposed to meet my partner at the pub but never turned up. We have been left with virtually nothing,' she said. The missing items include a wardrobe, a settee, all their family photos and clothing and medical records for the couple's seven-month-old daughter Ariyah. The Facebook page advertising the removal service has since been taken down.

The couple, from Walsall, West Midlands, wanted help moving from their flat to the pub they manage. The couple had booked a firm named Lee Green to move their possessions after finding them on Facebook. 'For us it's been a big lesson to learn. I just hope others can be more careful about trusting people they book over social media as I would hate for this to happen to anyone else.'

The two workers arrived in a rental van on Friday morning before packing the couple's items - which included everything except their television - into the van. They managed to complete the job in 45 minutes and were then meant to drive eight miles to the Horse and Jockey pub, in which the couple have invested nearly all their money. 'It all happened so quickly,' Ms Szenk said. 'They were racing in and out of the flat. We just thought they were being very professional.

Everything but the television

The couple only has their television left with them, and that's simply because they moved it themselves as they were worried about it getting damaged!

A good lesson to be learnt, for everyone!
