MIAMI – A delivery courier has filed a suit against two Florida men, alleging they schemed to make hundreds of international shipments without paying for them.
Federal Express Corp. filed a complaint on March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against William Ramirez Bermudez and Andres Endara, citing breach of contract and fraud.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages in the form of lost revenues and profits. The suit states that between February to August 2012, the defendants shipped packages to Columbia at a cost of $600,000. FedEx holds Ramirez Bermudez and Endara responsible because the defendants allegedly opened FedEx accounts using a fraudulent address, provided invalid credit card information, refused to pay invoices and enjoyed substantial ill-gotten proceeds from their purported scheme.
The plaintiff seeks the following: compensation for all damages and all court costs, plus interest. It is represented by Lawrence M. Siff of Lawrence M. Siff PA in Plantation.
