Eddy SalomonMy #1 Free Way To Work At Home!

Hey, I'm Eddy with a Y. I've seen it all when it comes to making money online but most of is crap! But I finally found a way to make real money online that I can actually recommend!


Package Forwarding & Reshipping Job or Scam?

Package Forwarding & ReShipping Job or Scam pic

Seems like for every person that seeks legitimate work at home opportunities there are thousands or more that want to scam them out of their hard earned money.

Unfortunately this is the reality of the situation that we must face and deal with. We take this very seriously on our blog. With the economy being in the state it is, None of us can afford to be investing money in scams when there are actually legitimate ways to make money online. In fact we list many legitimate and free Legit ways to make money online here.

Recently we’ve had an onslaught of positive comments and thanks from many of you who were able to avoid scams such as wire transfer and check cashing because of articles you read here.

So with that in mind I just want to introduce yet another scam to avoid.  By the way, this is a real scam. This isn’t one of the cases where you tried a work at home opportunity and couldn’t make money so now you’re calling it a scam. This isn’t one of those misrepresenting rebate processing, typing, data entry or survey lists. The following scam is the type that will not only lose you money but you may also end up losing your freedom. So listen up!

 

So what is Package Forwarding or Re-shipping Work At Home Opportunity?

Unfortunately, it’s not working at home for UPS, FED EX, DHL or the USPS shipping packages. This so called opportunity is more like a variation of wire transfers or check cashing scams. It’s no surprise that the scam artist wouldn’t deviate much from other successful scams. After all, “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?”.  But from time to time they make some slight variations to see if they can sucker even more people like us.

So here’s how it works in a nutshell. Re-shipping also known as “package forwarding” usually starts with an emailed job offer. Just like the common Nigerian scam, these so called “employers” offer up phony contracts and other documentation to make them appear legitimate.  They may even reference legitimate company names and physical address in their emails (like Microsoft or some other major company you already trust.) Once they have lured you into a sense of security, the packages are shipped to your home at no cost to you. You are provided with instructions to reship the packages to another address (Usually a P.O. box) Once you have reshipped the package you report back to the company so you can get your check.

Sounds good, right? You just need to sit there and wait for your check now. But guess what? It’s not a check that arrives at youR door. Instead it’s your local boys in blue (POLICE) or if you’re really lucky, the feds (F.B.I.). And what they’re bringing you is a one way ticket to “club fed” aka prison, jail, the slammer, etc. You’re now considered an accessory to a crime and may be even found “guilty” of receiving and shipping stolen property.

 

Identity Theft With A Twist Of Lime…

Most of us have heard about identity theft. Usually the victim is one person whose identity has been stolen. However no one really talks about another element of it which comes into play with today’s scam. Reshipping or package forwarding schemes actually double the adverse effects of identity theft.

It creates two victims, the person whose identity has been stolen and a person who becomes a package forwarder or re-shipper. The reason is that when you re-ship these packages on behalf of these so called legit companies, you’re actually shipping stolen merchandise to the real criminals who stole someone’s identity & credit card information. Now when criminals commit identity theft or credit card schemes, they know not to ship the stolen goods to their homes. It’s a really dumb way to get caught. So this re-shipping “job” was hatched to easily move stolen goods using us as a unknowing  mules. This is also the reason they tell you to ship to a p.o. box. This way they can’t be traced when you finally realize you’ve been punked. Except no one is laughing when everything has been figured out.

 

So What Should You Do?

First and foremost, don’t feel embarrassed if you are a victim. Desperation and lack of information leads a lot of us to become victim of work at home scams. Unfortunately it’s sort of a rite of passage many of us face before finding success as I did with My #1 Free Legitimate Way To Make Real Money At Home. So don’t beat yourself up about it. Become proactive and learn from this mistake.  Here are some action steps to take:

 

1. Don’t accept packages for people you don’t know.

So if you’re coming here asking if company x is legitimate because you’re considering shipping packages for them, just stop in your tracks. If it sounds like the scam listed above, that’s what it is. Don’t let your desperation cloud your judgement. Just remember scam artist will often use legitimate company names and websites to throw you off. But that doesn’t matter! If it has anything to do with re-shipping items, you know it’s a scam!

 

2. Stop all communication with con artists who try to solicit your help in re-shipping items. Again don’t let anything throw you off.

 

3. Don’t Send It!

If you already have the stolen merchandise from the scam artists, don’t mail it! You should return it to the merchant as soon as possible and explain the situation to them. Don’t let them intimidate you or worry about any physical retaliation. These guys are cyber thugs and punks. They don’t want any of you. Trust me they have more than enough victims they can target if you decide to do the right thing.

 

4. Cover Your Ass!

Keep all correspondence (e-mails, faxes, receipts, invoices etc.) related to these scams. If the boys in blue or feds coming knocking on your door, you want to build your case that you’re a victim here too and weren’t the originator of the scam.

 

5. Start Snitching!

The scam artists know you’re going to feel embarrassed or “stupid” for falling for this scam. They’re actually betting that you’re going to stay tight lip for fear of ridicule. That’s the worse thing you can do. Here’s a news flash most of us have been scammed before finding something legitimate as I did. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. That said, you spread the word! Doing so will help protect others.

  • So contact the Postal Inspectors at 1-877-876-2455 of click here to file a complaint online. They’ll help you return stolen items back to the proper owners.
  • File a complaint with ic3.gov as well for good measure.

 

6. Invest in credit monitoring and identity theft protection.

Chances are you were required to fill out some bogus job application or other paper work where you provided some personal information. You may have even sent in copies of your driver’s license or other id. Either way all that information can be used to open up lines of credit in your name which can obviously be used to buy more merchandise. Then the cycle starts again and they’ll have someone else shipping stolen goods they buy with your credit.

So my advice is to invest in some credit monitoring and/or identity protection services ASAP! It’s literally an investment you can’t afford not to have after you’ve become a victim. These con artists can sell your information on the black market and you’ll never know when one of them decides to start using it. So you need to have a trusted credit/identity monitoring company that for you 24/7. Otherwise you can hurt your own credit and lead to other issues.

 

How You Can Help Fight Back!

If you have already fallen victim to this, you may want to be proactive and report all the details below so others can avoid it. Include any emails, names, addresses, etc. The more information you can provide, the better it will be. This way when people do a search online, this article will come up and help others avoid this scam! Remember that’s probably how you came to this article. So do your part to help others as well!

Knowledge is power, and the more you know about the industry the better your chances are of success.

 

Conclusion

The only forwarding you should be doing is sharing a good joke or an informative article like this one. But I’m actually dead ass serious. Send this article to as many people as you can. Post it on social media and help others avoid this nonsense. If you stay silent, you’re just helping the people who scammed you. So keep that in mind.

Hopefully we saved many more of you from becoming another victim of this twist on identity theft. I’ll say it again for good measure, don’t get involved in something like this. I don’t care if they said Jesus thought it was a good idea. It’s not!

Don’t try to rationalize it. Chances are if you’re asking if a company is legitimate, you probably already suspect it’s a scam and it usually is.

I hope this helps either way!  If you find this article useful and would like to hear from me with more information on legitimate ways to make money or scams to avoid then consider becoming a subscriber like thousands of others have!

Hey there. I think I just got scammed myself. Have you heard of a Florida company called Tranship Shipping? It looked very legit but also very much like the scams mentioned here. I have sent packages for them already and am stopping immediately. Is this company known to you? Thanks man.

    Eddy Salomon - December 18, 2014 Reply

    Hey Josh,

    I don’t know of the company but you’ve pretty much hit it on the head. If it sounds like the multiple companies and reports listed above then it’s pretty much a scam and you just need to follow the steps I listed above. I’m sorry you ran into this nonsense. But fortunately it led you here. So at the very least you’ll learn about legitimate ways to make money.

the world wanting to trade on the Internet.

Why our business exists:
We offer our services to residents of different countries who want to buy and sell at Internet

stores servicing the United States, European Union and Canada, but find it difficult because of

shipping restrictions and complicated transactions.
As a result, thousands of people cannot easily access the huge market with high quality products at

low prices, that America and the European countries have created.
Our company’s service makes buying and selling easy and possible with street addresses that can be

legally used for shipping purposes.

    Thanks for sharing. I’m surprised you didn’t run into this page as you did your research most people do. The BBB isn’t a government agency so it’s not like they can shut these scammers down and they do actually warn about reshipping scams. They just don’t list all of the new ones as we do because of comments like yours. But it doesn’t hurt to share. Apparently it’s very difficult to catch these scammers especially since many of them are out of the country. But sharing the scam as you did and sharing this page will help people avoid it. Thanks again!

    iwillgetthroughthis - December 17, 2014 Reply

    The reason i did not get to this website in time is because i was using the company name in my google search query and trying to find job reviews for the company but nothing came up other than their website because it was something that they recently put together. Also, when you type the business name it appears on the top list of the google search engine results and google have algorithms in place that do not promote scam websites and i know this because i have worked as a search engine evaluator (legitimate online job) so i am not even sure whether they are falsely claiming to be part of a legitimate company or if the whole company and everything associated with it is part of the scam. But this made me confident that i was dealing with a legit company. So at that moment i was not researching the company because i was suspicious about them i was researching the company to know what other employees said about it and basically get job reviews. They even stated that they are a new company and are expanding operations in the U.S. I checked the BBB website and they were listed with no complaints so everything was flowing in their favor, it is just recently that i have realized the BBB website do not allow complaints about employees or scams. I believe that if these people were cunning enough to convince me that they were legitimate they must also be monitoring your website and coming up with ideas on how to go around getting caught or how to trick people. I just wanted to point that out because it is highly likely they do though i am not sure what significance this has, i encourage other people to report this type of scams here and post their experiences so others do not get tricked. The red flags begun when the UPS guy looked at me funny when i tried claiming packages that were addressed to me but not under my name and i was confidently telling him that i worked for this organization and i am responsible for their client’s packages. He then told me it was against company policy for them to deliver packages that way so i thought to myself, why would this company i work for ask me to do something that is against UPS policy? so i called UPS customer care service immediately and explained to them everything about the company my role and my experience with the delivery guy, they told me that i would need to get an authorization document from the company i work for – Global Parcel Delivery LLC and use it to claim the packages (even if they were not under my name). This also made me to believe that there wasn’t anything wrong with what i was doing in fact to confirm this information i decided to call their office at different periods and times so i could speak to different customer service agents and the surprising thing is that they all told me that i am allowed to receive the packages. Luckily for me i have administration experience and one thing i learnt is that i should never rely on he said she said evidence so i even told them to send me a written document or anything solid that can help me claim these packages since they said it is allowed, one of the people i spoke with was even a security specialist for UPS and he sent me an email with instructions of what i should do to pick up the packages even after telling him who i was working for and what are my roles and the packages aren’t under my name. I do not blame these customer service agents because it is not their fault, i am just surprised that a big company like UPS do not disseminate information about these scams to their employees since their services are being used and these scams date back to 2009. Or do they just look the other way because they would not have any implications but still benefit from the whole business process? i do not know but long story short i decided i was going to research not the company but the nature of my job which is ‘work from home reshipping packages’ because the UPS guy still maintained that it is against company policy for me to receive packages that are not under my name even though they are addressed to me and that is how i got here. If these guys fooled me – someone who has advanced use and knowledge about the internet, they can fool anybody especially if you are desperately looking for a job.

    Eddy Salomon - December 18, 2014 Reply

    Agreed. I don’t when people fall for these scams it’s a matter of people not being savvy or “stupid”. Although some insensitive people argue this. Most of the time people’s desperation clouds their judgement. That seems to be the biggest reasons people fall for this. The second is just a lack of knowledge about how all these various work at home scams work. People just assume things that charge money are scams which is also false. But they don’t realize there are other scams that work without asking you for money. So I think it’s a combination of those two factors. The only good thing that comes of situations like this is people learn to be more wary and they discover this site where they can learn about legitimate ways to make money and how to avoid other scams.

    In any event, thanks for chiming in again.

    iwillgetthroughthis - December 18, 2014 Reply

    remember when i said by typing the company name i was unable to get here? since i posted a comment with the company name and its scamming activities on your website which now appears as the third result as of 12/18/2014 (the first result is the scam company Global Parcel Delivery LLC and the second result is it’s careers page – note the vacant position on their careers page) also my comment is below the link to your website in the search results. What is funny is that there is virtually nothing that indicates that this company is a scam other than your website (i hope my logic is understood now). I have posted another comment below intentionally because i know a little about SEO so hopefully your website should be at the top for the query: Global Parcel Delivery and nobody else will ever get scammed by this company. You are also right about the lack of knowledge, i had no idea i could be scammed without spending my own money. When i’m done sorting this issue i plan on joining wealthy affiliate, they seem to be doing a good job.

    Global Parcel Delivery LLC – WARNING THIS IS A SHIPPING SCAM!!!!

    Eddy Salomon - December 18, 2014 Reply

    Well played!!! And that’s exactly why I always encourage people to post the details because I know this articles ranks very highly for the various company names and the reshipping scams. Clearly you understand SEO so thanks for using it to fight against these scammers. Global Parcel has actually been mentioned here a lot. So it should definitely pop up. In any event, I really appreciate your insight and sharing the info. I’m happy you’re considering WA. It’s a great community and I learned so much of what I do here from them. I feel very blessed to be able to write content like this that helps people avoid scams and also be able to share legitimate ways to make money. Being paid to help people online to make money and avoid scams is great. I’m sure if you join WA you’ll find your path as well. I hope to see you there.

I would be happy to research any links for package shipping
to detect if it is a scam. Just post the link here and i will research it and return my results on this page. No Charge!

    Eddy Salomon - December 17, 2014 Reply

    Donald,

    Thanks but there isn’t much to research. Once the job involves re-shipping you know it’s a scam which I’ve pretty much expressed numerous time in my article and comments. So it’s not really hard to figure out. It’s just some people don’t want to give into the idea that they fell for this scam. But it’s pretty easy to determine whether this stuff is a scam. I think people get fixated on things that can be easily faked like a pretty website, documentation, etc. But if you ignore all of that and just focus on the task at hand, it’s very easy to spot.

    donald - December 17, 2014 Reply

    There are many forwarding companies who hire independent agent that are doing a reputable honest business; and the pay is commission paid weekly.
    I can supply a list of some of them but I would be glad to help your readers weed out the crooks if they send me the links of questionable contacts.

    Eddy Salomon - December 18, 2014 Reply

    Donald,
    There hasn’t been one reputable re-shipping company that hires at home agent and all the protection agencies I listed above will agree with me. So I don’t know your angle here but please don’t pump that mis-information and having people believe that some of these companies are legit. Because if they were, the government agencies that warn against them would provide the legitimate ones you’re claiming.

Edward Deniz - December 16, 2014 Reply

I fell for two companies, simultaneously. When the first company (Global Parcels Delivery, LLC) paid me for my initial probation period of $100, I thought these jobs were legit and took another offer from Executive Shipper, Inc.in an effort to increase my income. I had been unemployed for almost 5 months when I landed upon Global Parcels, so I was extremely gullible and desperate. When it came time for payday with Global Parcels, they disappeared on me; the phone calls and emails came to a complete stop. I got my first package November 17, 2014 and have done about a month of work for them. I feel extremely dumb for ignoring all “red flags” when they surfaced. Luckily, I haven’t done much for Executive Shippers, only sent out 2 packages for them. I will be returning the merchandise I currently hold for both companies.

1st Company Global Parcels Delivery, LLC:

Names: Karen Jones, Linda Taylor

2nd Company Executive Shippers

Names: Troy Birch, Jeffrey Hinton, James Bauer

Let me give example of a red flag:

Jeffrey Hinton

me
Dec 12 at 2:30 PM
Dear Edward,

Thanks for your delivery confirmation. I will keep you updated.

James Bauer
Rush Shipping Service Inc
Tel:
Canada +1 (581) 221-0636
USA +1 (352) 353-0302
Fax:
Canada +1 (581) 700-2862
USA +1 (561) 584-5225

This company is Executive Shippers and my supervisors name is Jeffrey Hinton (mention at the top of email), but if you look on their signature, Mr. Hinton made the mistake of signing as James Bauer with another bogus company name. Desperate for a paycheck, it was easy to overlook this.
I will follow the steps laid out by Eddy and hope feds don’t coming knocking on my door. I have saved ALL information since day one.
Good luck everyone, these things should never happen to us.

    Eddy Salomon - December 16, 2014 Reply

    Thanks for sharing Ed. I’m sorry to hear you fell for this scam. But I do appreciate you being brave enough to share the experience so others can learn. I’m sure if you follow the steps listed above, you’ll be fine.

I’ve been searching for a job for a while now, not even a work at home job, just a job in general. When ‘Material Handler’ popped up on Indeed, I was thrilled to apply. I got this e-mail an hour ago.

I wish I found this site before it happened to me. I would not like to go back with all of what happened, but all same old story. I am feeling so stupid myself as I fell for it.

    Thanks for sharing Mahbubur! Don’t feel stupid, it happens to the best of us. At least it’s lead you to this site where now you’ll be able to find real legitimate ways of making money online.

skeptic - December 10, 2014 Reply

I received an email just like the rest of the people in here. It was from US Logistics LLC. Similar letter of offer. I responded a couple of times to see where this will lead me to and then stopped – when they asked me for banking information along with copy of my drivers license. I thought “They will know everything about me but I won’t know anything about them.” Their website I logged on to was just created a couple of days ago and wasn’t fully functional. Their address was to some supply company. Their phone numbers was to a voicemail saying to contact your supervisor. VERY bad feeling. So I started to search the company and found your site. I am glad to find you and feel sorry for the people who found you too late. I hope people out there can be careful and not fall in to scams. Like they say “if it’s too good to be true….”

    I’m so happy you didn’t fall for this and that my website confirmed your suspicions. It is unfortunate that more people don’t know about this site because it would help them avoid this nonsense and find legitimate ways to make money. In either case, thanks for sharing your experience. Please be sure you share this website as well as it may help others as it helped you.

    That’s weird Antony. I was able to get this reply so use this to reply to others. But if your question is if some company ended up being a scam the answer is probably yes if you’ve read my article above and the company follows the same pattern.

can you verify if this is a scam please?

I am very sure it is and I am a victim. I signed an agreement with them and sent a copy of my ID to them also. to me it was a very suspicious opportunity but i fell into their game.

I signed the agreement yesterday and I have never received a package from them so I will not receive it tomorrow or I will return it to USPS office.

I even received a phone interview from a lady and every seemed so legit but what worries me is that they have the copy of my ID.

PLEASE WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    Eddy Salomon - December 5, 2014 Reply

    I would definitely watch for any accounts that may pop up in your name. Invest in some identity security like I suggested above. If they have your id and address, it can be used in a lot of bad ways. And do as suggested in the article above for the packages and reporting these folks.

Tanzeena - November 18, 2014 Reply

I got scammed too!! =( I got an email from a company called US Global Het Delivery LLC and I thought it was a great oppurtunity. I only got one package so I contacted the “Supervisor” to see if I was supposed to be getting any packages anytime soon. He gave me “bonus tasks” instead. I was recieving money and they transfering it out to Ukraine! And it was like $4700 at a time! So after the second transfer I was not feeling comfortable with it anymore and let him know that I did not want to do this anymore. But they had already froze my bank acct and they let me know that it was fraud. This was only yesterday that I had to close that acct and start a whole another acct. I have been spending all day fixing my direct deposit and all other accounts linked to my bank acct. I even made a police report yesterday after getting out of the bank just to make sure that if anything were to happen that I had a way to clear my name. I have printed out all my emails and still even have some voicemails that he has left on my phone. I wish I had found this website before going through all of this. It would have saved me whole lot of trouble!

Hi Eddy,

I am so glad I found this site, when I first applied with the company. The company checked out correctly (Including the website). I am two weeks into the job and have mailed 7 packages or so to include an IPAD2. What flagged me was the order itself (IPAD2) had my name on it.

Knowing I never ordered an IPAD2 really made me feel uncomfortable. Let alone to ship it on to another address with the invoice having my name on it.

I will attempt to follow the steps above, I have another package on it’s way and will return it to the package distributor.

Thanks again…
-JM

D'andra - November 11, 2014 Reply

I just had the same thing happen to me the company is called Escrowed INC. if you received an email looking like this…it is a scam…I have done the work for 30 days shipping the last package on Friday November 7, 2014. The email goes like this:

Hello , D’andra!

We’re glad to know that you’re interested in the suggested Dispatch Supervisor position.

In this email we’ll explain what exactly you’ll be doing and we hope it will only reaffirm your decision.

Our company Escrowed Inc provides escrow services. In other words, we act as a third party mediator between seller and buyer to ensure security of both. We work with all kind of sellers and buyers, starting with your basic physical person and all the way to corporate and government clients.

Of course we’re not just intermediary, that would be too simple. Additionally we perform as quality controllers by testing merchandise and monitoring its condition to make sure that it fits customers demands. This is quite a challenging task. We’re establishing multiple locations all over the country, to make sure that we can do our job quickly and with highest possible quality.Every office consists of couriers, quality control department (something like a small lab) and customer support.

So we are suggesting a Dispatch supervisor position in our new office in Kansas City.

Dispatch supervisor is an administrative position. Your main goal will be to coordinate different departments of the office. You’ll be controlling paperwork of all departments, maintaining constant flow of packages, checking the results from the quality control department as well as supervising customer service department. You’ll also act as substitute for heads of departments when necessary. Basically Dispatch Supervisor is a key position for our offices. You’ll be reporting directly to the head of the branch. This is a responsible and challenging position and at first you might need to run around all the departments (not like Forrest Gump, but at least from one department to another). At the same time we’re offering a competitive salary for the job. We guarantee base 3500$ salary + bonuses and corporate health insurance.

This is a full time job with an 8 hour shift, 5 days per week.

Basically this is it. No we would like to take a look at your resume. Your HR manager Bryan Rein will be waiting for a copy on the following email address bryan@escrowed-social.com. Once you’ll email the resume be ready for an express interview over the phone!

If you get one surely it is a scam…I had to send my photo id and checking and routing number to them so they can “direct deposit” my check…the good thing about that is that i don’t have an actual bank account the numbers were to an pre paid debit card but i did send my photo id. I have all the paper work and emails to show that I really thought I was performing a legit Job. Also, I have received a “job offer” from a Amanda Barns for Edwards Logistics real company but fraud job…Glad I researched before actually filling out the form on the website. Thanks I so wished I would have seen this earlier like a month earlier.

I looked them up before i agreed to work for the company it looked so legit. They even put a contract together. I read and sighned it. And as did they. I was legitimately talking to someone on the phone as well. And it seemd like i wasnt the only one who had heard of the company. My fiance told me hes heard of that company before and that they handle shipments.
What im asking is are they legit. Im so scared right now. Have i really waited a month of my time for nothing?

    As I said in my article above, a lot of times scammers will use legitimate company names.
    If the “job” involves receiving packages and then re-shipping them to a different address or P.O. Box, it’s the scam I described above.

Why doesn’t the federal government shut these sites down? You can find all the ones talked about here in a 5 second search? They are obviously illegal by doing a few minutes of research on them. Just image all the money the government could save their tax payers if they had just one person work a single day shutting down sites? The only reason I can come up with as to why the US gov. doesn’t shut them down is unless there are legal companies doing this service in the exact same way but actually paying their workers????

    Eddy Salomon - October 26, 2014 Reply

    Mike,

    It’s a good question. But you can probably argue that about many illegal activities that are rampant throughout the country including in government. I don’t have the answers. It’s a great point though. All I do know is this stuff is illegal and can get you in a world of hurt.

Joe - October 24, 2014 Reply

Eddy,

I recently started with immediate merchandise delivery. Now finding out it is a scam I only sent one package. I just had another “TASK” pop up and another package is being sent to me. I sent them a message on the website portal saying “this is a scam, do not send me any more packages.” They sent me back a message saying, ” You better keep sending out packages you have coming or we will take measures.” I feel like you said above they are cyber bullying and wont do anything. The only information i have given them is my name and address. Can they do any identity theft with that? I see you answer promptly on here and would greatly appreciate what you think I should do.

Thank You,

Joe

    Hey Joe,

    I don’t think they can do much with the little information you provided. But you never know with these scam artists. I feel like they’d be more inclined to just move on to the next easy target. But it wouldn’t hurt to keep a watch on your identity. It’s up to you. But you’ve taken the proper steps. Sorry you fell for this. But at least you found this website and now have some legitimate options you can look into now. Keep me posted man.

Brenda - October 16, 2014 Reply

Hello, my name is Brenda.
My fiance was working for a company called Global Shopping LOGISTICS and it had a 30 day trial. He thought it was a real job but according to your article it wasn’t legit. He has sent many packages under many names and was told these packages were from e-bay and that he would receive them under a managers name and send it back out under his name. Unfortunately he has finished the job and when payday came they didn’t pay him. He made a claim through the workforce place hoping to get his money buy he has told them he is still employed by them even though he no longer receives packages and is still waiting for payment. What should he do, now that he knows it was a scam but has already sent out many packages under his name for a month?

Hello Mr Eddy,
thanks for sharing this article. I wanted to say that unfortunately it looks like i fell for this scam too. I only sent one package, but then stopped and did research and I went ahead and filed a report with the Postal Inspector online. I wanted to ask is there anything else i can do to fully avoid any consequences like arrest? Should I go to the local police or is that a bad idea, since they might see it as admitting to a crime or something?

Here is another one I received a few weeks ago… I went through the process and have not heard back after sending in my completed application and contract.

Kiante Williams - September 24, 2014 Reply

I unfortunately fell victim I have not got a visit from the police, but I have sent a package out. I just received another package, and UPS told me to either keep it or refuse it and they will send someone to pick it back up. My question is how do I know where it is going? It may be going right back to the theives. Also, the package came in a different name I was just going to go throw it in the dumpster. What do I do?

    Eddy Salomon - September 24, 2014 Reply

    Sorry to hear that Kiante.
    It happens to the best of us. I don’t think you fully grasp how the scam works. They’re stealing people’s credit info. Then they’re buying stuff with the stolen credit card. Then they’re using unsuspecting work at home seekers like yourself to ship the stolen merchandise to a po box or address that can’t be traced back to them. Once the credit card victim realizes what happens they’ll contact their card company and the vendor. The vendor will then contact you since it went to you. So sending it back won’t be sending it to the thieves. It’s sending it back to the shop.

    Hope that makes sense. So what you need to do is basically follow the steps I listed in the article above. I hope this helps.

I received an email nearly identical to all the comments above from an “Exec Direct Aviation Services LTD,” contacted by a “Robert Hudson.” Unfortunately I was idiotic enough to sign the contract sent and have emailed them back. I was just so ecstatic to have a job and supposed income coming. Once again the homage “too good to be true” turns out to be true. Fortunately I’ve looked them up now and despite having a website and several google items I luckily found this website…dang, now I am so stressed about next week and what I assume will be incoming packages. Is this crap going to go on the rest of my life? Do you think there’s any danger about people coming to harm my family? (this concern only voiced by my mom, but it seems a legit concern). I’ve also received emails/contract and even a phone call from a second company for an identical position/gig, this time by “Edwards Logistics” sent from an “Amanda Barns.” Fortunately I have not signed this and will not be.

Thank you for this website. I only hope it’s not too late. Hopefully this can help others who operate with a bit more logic/discretion/caution before they give away their signature. But desperation in a desperate economy goes a long way in luring helpless victims in.

    No I haven’t but it really doesn’t matter if it follows the same patterns that have you read in the comments and article above. The company could be called God’s Logistics for all I care. If it involves the activities listed here, you know what to do.

    Thanks for sharing Andre.
    Creating a professional website can literally take minutes. But as you know it doesn’t matter how polished the website looks or what company name they use or refer to. If the job involves what we described it’s something to be avoided. I don’t see anything on this website about a re-shipping packaging job though?

    Julia Lane - September 3, 2014 Reply

    @Eddy they sent me an email with “Job offer” in the subject line. There were two Word/PDF attachments (an application and “contract” with the info. I’ve already reported them. The “HR” woman Amy B. called me yesterday asking if I was still interested, what joke. I also traced the IP to Atlanta. When you call the number it sounds “legit”, but it’s not. I went as far as to call the landlords of the building to see if and who they are at the address they gave me. Stay tuned.

Hey, thank you for this page. The information has helped me a lot… I was just about to sign some forms from this guy calling himself OTP-Longistics… t.d & otp.pdf agreement files. But i was hesitant about giving out my ID Card Number…. then i decided first to search the net. Then the same guy (manager) Alexie (Alexandria) Redman appears and it’s true that a research on this company might not find any bad reviews since it registered as NEW and strangely an IP address from Germany and russia. With all this I’ve declined to sign the agreement….. and the way i thought i had secured a job!!!

    I was just scammed by OTP-Logistics as well. When I searched the Internet I did not find any information about them except for they had a newer Web site. A person by the name of “Lexie Redman” was contacting me. Everything sounded great, until I read this.

Oh my gosh, I thought those things were something from the past. A couple of years ago I almost bit and applied to one of those companies, but it said someone had to be home all day and in my house there may or may not be. Then I wondered why, since they can come back later or leave it on the doorstep or leave a note. Then I wondered why they’d ship stuff to a stranger in the first place.

I feel terrible for the people here who got schtuped by this. Want a silver lining? I learned, through my googling, that since the paper trail is leading to you, you could be held liable for the crap that was purchased using a stolen credit card and then sent to your house in addition to being arrested for theft. So you see, if all that happened was you mailed off a couple of boxes and then never got paid for doing it, just say good riddance and live and learn. You got off lucky. Those people are evil.

    Eddy Salomon - August 28, 2014 Reply

    Unfortunately scams don’t just disappear. There is always a new victim for an old scam. Sometimes they just lie dormant or re-invent themselves. But if it worked in the past then some shady person will bring it up again. But fortunately we’ll be here to educate folks! I’m glad you were able to avoid being a victim of this!

Alex - August 26, 2014 Reply

Apparently, I have fallen victim to this scam as well.

The latest scam comes from Double K Logistics, LLC. They are based in Oak Harbor, Ohio and their website is http://doubleklogistics.com/

I applied online and was contacted later that night by the “HR Manager Thomas.” I was not available to talk because I was in church at that time. He promised me that he would contact me the next day. However, I have not heard from him since. I tried repeatedly to get in touch with him and even reapplied for the job but heard nothing from him.

Today, I received a package in the mail from Amazon.com with my home address but with a name that nobody within my household is aware of. Nobody within my household ordered anything from Amazon.com that is the size of the package.

I am now certain that this is a scam after finding this page as well as the following page: http://exposingemailscams.blogspot.com/2014/07/double-k-logistics-inc-forwarding-agent.html

Please do not fall for any scams from Double K Logistics, Inc.

Thank you.

I just got out of a scam similar to the ones on this page. the “company’s” name is Independent Trading Supplies,Inc. Long story short, they wanted me to reship packages for $1940 a month only working 20 hours a week.

It wasn’t until I was online last night(8/24/2014) that I realized that what I was involved in was a scam. I immediately emailed them and told them that I will no longer work for them and don’t send anymore packages.

I saw all the bells and whistles of a scam when I was going through the application process, but since they didn’t want any money, I ignored them. Heck, I even signed an employment agreement which really had a lot of work put into it.

So everyone be aware of any one wanting you to reship packages, even if they have a website and official looking documents for you to sign. Inspect the websites that they have set up. Upon further inspection you will notice that many of the links lead to no where and the Facebook and Twitter links only lead back to those service’s web template service. Go to: indtsupplies.com and you can see for yourself.

Don’t let the desire to make good money or the need to work at home cloud your judgement when you make decisions about online work, even when no money comes out of your pocket to participate. You may end up paying for it later in jail time for accepting stolen goods.

    Jerisha,
    It doesn’t really matter. Most of the time the emails the scammers use are gmail addresses or one they created with the domain they purchased. The focus should be on what the alleged job is. Once you’re dealing with reshipping scams, it doesn’t matter what the company name, email address, etc is. As I said in the article above the scammers will even refer to real company name’s info, etc.

    Mario - August 27, 2014 Reply

    Hey I think I am a victim too, I search on Google for work at home job. I received a couple of email from this company called OTP Logistics explaining all the details and how much money I was going to make every month and for every package I sent out i will make $30 dollars extra. I did sign the agreement with a copy of my photo ID which they did told me in the email to scratch my ID number so I did sent them back the papers, after realizing it is a scamm I email them back letting them know I was not longer interested in the position and that I have already contacted the FBI. Also did a research on this company and its still new so you might not find any bad reviews but what really got me thinking was is that the I address is from Germany and russia. So becareful people don’t fall for any of these scamm. Luckily I have not received any package and if I do received one I will sent it back to where it came from and explain the situation…. any re shipping work from home is a scamm…also the manager the sent me the email is lexie Redman be aware people…

Scam I found below. Watch out for http://www.piaggiogr.com

Greetings, dear applicant!

First of all I would like to thank you for your interest in our company.
My name is Mr. Joseph Bonowitz, I am a Hiring Department specialist at Piaggio Group Inc. Our website is

http://www.piaggiogr.com
The primary line of our company’s activity is correspondence and distribution for customers all over the world

wanting to trade on the Internet.

Why our business exists:
We offer our services to residents of different countries who want to buy and sell at Internet stores servicing

the United States, European Union and Canada, but find it difficult because of shipping restrictions and

complicated transactions.
As a result, thousands of people cannot easily access the huge market with high quality products at low prices,

that America and the European countries have created.
Our company’s service makes buying and selling easy and possible with street addresses that can be legally used

for shipping purposes.
Much like you have a friend or relative in United States or European Union, our Product Forwarding Contractors

residing in these countries inspect and repackage the contents, fix the boxes and forward the packages of

merchandise bought or sold on the Internet to customers in final destination countries. Also we provide

guarantees and insurance service.
That is why we contract with people like you for parcel and mail forwarding. Also, we will need smart,

responsible people who can be trained for management positions.

Products usually shipped through our service:
– Luxury items such as watches and jewelry
– Sport equipment
– Small electronics such as laptops, cameras, cell phones, tablets, GPS, PC components, etc.
– Clothing, shoes, handbags etc.
– Small auto parts

IMPORTANT: We never offer to ship illegal or restricted for export or import materials and technologies.
All parcels are compact enough to be processed within the room of a regular-sized house.

Each address you will ship packages to – is our sorting facility. The packages are being shipped to our

customers, but you don’t see their names and addresses on shipping labels. The package is being inspected and

re-shipped further after it arrives at our facility.
We have several types of customers.
1. – Some of them are residents of different countries – they buy products online for themselves and use our

service to.
2. – some of them are residents of United States, but they live outside of the US and use our service to receive

their personal correspondence, financial correspondence like bills or invoices and buy products online.
3. – Some of our customers are sellers, who trade through our system. Usually they live in US, Canada and

European Union and sell goods to their clients in different countries.

Job description:

Your primary responsibilities as a Product Forwarding Contractor will be:

1. – You will be receiving mail and packages from our company and its clients at your physical residential

address;
2. – You will be sending reports to an assigned, personal manager, who will contact you after we finish with

6. – You will be fixing the damaged boxes. The contents should get to the customer safe and sound.
7. – You will be re-labeling parcels received at your address by attentively following instructions which your

manager will send by email.
8. – Then you will be completing forms and paperwork as instructed — one for each parcel to be forwarded. Never

use the same shipping label to send more than one package.
9. – And finally you will be forwarding parcels according to instructions sent by your manager. (You will

receive prepaid shipping labels so you are not responsible for any cost of shipping.)
10. – After that you will only need to send small “shipping report” to your manager, which means, that you

finished the task successfully.

Important note: There are no start-up fees, investment or other costs related to this position.

Salary and bonuses:

-Your base monthly salary is $2500.00;

During an initial, four-week trial period, you will be receiving 8-12 packages per week.
If we are satisfied by your performance and you wish to continue, you will be transferred to our key staff and

we will send about 50 packages per week to your address for processing and forwarding.
After you finish the trial period – one of our accounting department representatives will contact you to discuss

the matter of health insurance, taxes and vacation time frame.
Your first pay date will be at the end of your trial period (four weeks from the date when you have shipped your

first package). If you will continue working with us, you will be paid every two weeks by company paycheck or,

if you prefer, PayPal transfer.

    Kristina - August 10, 2014 Reply

    Yup. I’ve been fooled, because I didn’t listen. I found this post after sending off two packages with ann holloway with American shopping logistics. When I received the third package I went to the police department, I was trying to find any way that this wasn’t a scam. I took the item there and they couldn’t confirm anything was illegal, stolen or anything bad about the company. The officer even mentioned, you can keep it, sell it or return it. I held on to the item for a few days because I was unsure. I then got an email from ann holloway saying if I didn’t send it out then she would call the police on me. I sent the package and every other package I received. I did it for the full 30 days, hoping and hoping this was legit. I emailed an holloway to confirm that my first paycheck would come on August 4th and she said yes. August. 4 came, and of course. No paycheck. I was really desperate even after finding your site , I still did it. Lesson learned for sure.

    Hey Kiekie,

    No I haven’t but if it involves shipping some packages you already know it’s a scam. The company could be call Santa’s Claus’s company & It wouldn’t matter. As long as the job involves re-shipping things it should be avoided. Don’t worry about the company name, website, etc.

Avoid ukeasyshopping.com. It is a scam. It is not legit. They may sound legit, but like Eddy Salomon has had said. It is fake. If it was that easy to make money everyone would be doing it, but I told my supposed “boss” that I receive fraudulent postage and this is what he replied back with

“Hello Caylie, I understand your concern, I have checked, those two labels were given by customers. Please hold the parcels until the situation will be cleared up. I have passed this to our security, they will take care of dishonest clients. You have nothing to worry about, it does not address you as private person. That is the issue of the company and we are already working on it. As we are dealing with huge variety of clients sometimes there are problems arising, and we strive to sort them out as soon as they basically arise. That is actually not a “big” problem, but it is an inconvenience of course. However that mustn’t stop us from operating on the schedule, so I must ask you to continue with the work, as to accepting and keeping sending the packages out. That is indeed an inconvenience but in business things do happen. Thank you”

You see, they can make it sound like they are professional, but they cant make an explanation.

Caylie - July 20, 2014 Reply

I was a victim of a reshipping scam, as well. If it doesn’t seem legit and you were ordered to shred the invoices from the packages or you keep on questioning whether this job is really legitimate. Don’t fall for it. Thankfully, I received a notice from the postal inspectors that the pre paid shipping labels I was receiving from the said company were in fact fraudulent and out of date postage. I now owe up to 196 dollars to those packages for postage due. Company’s like this can really ruin you, your sense of self, and more importantly financially ruin you. Anything that sounds to easy or good to be true don’t take part in it.

    Eddy Salomon - July 21, 2014 Reply

    Damn Caylie,

    You should confirm if you really have to pay for those packages. You were a victim of a scam and shouldn’t be held accountable. I would dig deeper and ask around. Either way thanks for sharing your experience. It’s an unfortunate situation. Please share the name of the company, including any emails so it helps others avoid this nonsense! Thanks.

US Logistics Manager Position Open Pro Carriers Int. is an international logistics company with main office in Denmark. We are seeking top 7 employees to expand the number of our representatives on the US territory. This vacancy is home based, and entails receiving, examining, splitting/combining and getting ready items to be shipped out to various company’s customers outside the US. The job will also entail using a company’s web panel to document/print packing and shipping activities.

Hi Jams,

My name is Christine Madsen and I am HR Department representative.
PRO Carriers LLC is located in Denmark and we ship various goods from US to our customers in Europe and Asia that do not have possibility to shop by themselves. Most of US shops don’t provide international delivery for our European customers. We specialize in providing the opportunity for them to shop at US online stores by having our own shipping managers within the US that can reroute packages abroad.
For this job you would have to receive packages delivered by domestic service UPS, FedEx and USPS at your home address, inspect them and report to us. After that we provide you with the shipping info along with the shipping label. Processed packages have to be taken to the Post Office. This is a home based position with no additional fee. Pure salary of $50 per package processed. $1800 is a roughly amount for the trial month. After that the amount will increase at least twice. Delivery hours are 9am-5pm, but every package has a tracking number, so you can plan your day. Moreover, your relatives are able to accept packages while you gone, so you don’t need to stay at home all the time.
You can find more info at the company’s website: http://www.pro-carriers.com

If you’d like to proceed with the hiring process I will send you the application documents and give more detailed information.

Another to beware of is RPE logistics. Almost fell for it, but thanks to this site I ended employment right after I signed the contract. Filled out an employment application, received job description, even a contract with an official company stamp on it. Then came that gut feeling and I decided to do some research on Quality control inspector employment from home. After this site I sent several emails (no reply), called the numbers given only to get a busy tone. I filed a report with the agency listed above. Just really upset because I provided a copy of my license.

I was recently contacted by this company about a Logistics Manager position. I went to the website helpus staffing.com and did the app and submitted my resume. In a few days they contacted me with a phone interview and after that they contacted me saying that I had the job and that I needed to sign a contract agreement. After that they said my supervisor will contact me within 1-3 days with all the details of the job. He contacted me today telling me that I have to stay home from the hours of 9am-5pm Monday-Friday to receive packages. I will be sent a printer, ink paper and a digital camera to do the job. I have to open packages and take pics of the items for reference. I can be paid by check or direct deposit at the end of every month and I can contact payroll if I wanted to start with bi weekly payments. They also said I would receive a company cell phone as well. They said I would fill out W9 or I9 forms and state and federal taxes will be deducted form my pay for taxes and I will also have health, dental, and vision insurance as well. They also reimburse you for gas with $250 monthly. The supervisor name is Edward Eastman and the hr manager name is Gerard Stone and they are based out of Fontana ,CA. I haven’t started receiving packages yet but hey seem to real and very believable with saying they deduct taxes and health insurance and company cell phones. Anybody would believe this job is legit I am very skeptical since I have been reading these messages. Do you think this job is a scam as well with the info I have just told you.

    Hey Elma,

    Yes it’s a scam. Once you hear your job is going to involve receiving packages and then sending them elsewhere it doesn’t matter what else they say or make you do that sounds legit. It’s a scam that should be avoided. So follow the steps listed in my article above.

I feel so foolish! I received what I thought to be a job offering of receiving and shipping items ( which I thought would be art at first due to the email address ) Everything looked legit . I googled the email address and it came up with a legit looking website with a lot of art sculptures and paintings . I was told that I would get get paid $2400 a month +$25 for every parcel that was sent from me. It also said every package would have the tracking info with it .I electronically signed a “legit looking” contract and gave my name and address . 2 days later, which is today , well technically yesterday now which was the 24th of June 2014, I received two boxes, neither had my name on it but someone else’s with my address! It just felt like ssomething was not right about what was being sent, and one of the packages was one that was not expected at all! I am suppose to recieve two packages tomorrow and as soon as I do I am sending them to to the local police station. I can’t believe I fell for something so stupid! The email address is Southcoastusafineart@gmail.com and the lady states her name as Jessica. I hope this helps someone!!

As long as people do their research and let their common sense dictate their actions online, you can avoid most of the scams as I’ve done for many years.

    Thanks for sharing the additional information. I’m happy to see the BBB has posted about this recently and it’s good to see a member of the BBB on my blog. As you can see by the hundreds of comments, we’ve been helping people fight and avoid this particular scam for years. So thanks for chiming in!

Wow, this is amazing. I thank you so much for this page Eddy. I was recently contacted by a David Landon who claimed to be a Human Resources Manager for Packaging Plus LLC. about a Quality Inspector position. Needless to say I was extremely skeptical about this. So I looked up the website and of course it seems legitimate. They even have the position posted on the website. He sent me the job description and employment application. It seemed simple enough and a bit too good to be true. Even though I was skeptical, I still filled out the application because I have been unemployed for 10 months now after working for the same company for 12 years. I figured as long as they weren’t asking me for any money I was in the clear. Not even 48 hours after I filled out the application, I received another email stating that I was hired. I really couldn’t believe that. Even though I have a lot of experience in my field it was just too good to be true. He emailed me a contract wish seemed legitimate too. I haven’t received any packages yet from this company or should I say this scam. I am so glad I found your page before I became an accessory to any crime. As if the long term unemployed don’t have enough to worry about!! We are being preyed upon! Packaging Plus based out of Wilmington DE is a Scam!! Please beware everyone!

Wow, I’m glad I found your page…..I was seriously considering this offer. This one was shipping packages to Poland. But it sounds like it is the same as what you are talking about here.

    Hey Dawn,

    I’m happy you found us too and avoided this nonsense. Definitely check out some of my other articles and options. This industry is very shady so it’s important that you only focus your energy on things that have actually been researched and vetted. And that’s all I do here on this blog.

    So I’m happy this scam has led you here and you weren’t a victim.

Clearly you’re in denial. Keep receiving the packages and re-sending them to wherever they tell you.

See what happens in a few weeks or months.

    Thanks for the further details.
    This is definitely the packaging scam I described above.

    I’m sorry you fell victim to it. Unfortunately many of us have become victims of work at home scams. But the good news is that it led you to this site and we’ve provided you with a lot of legitimate options to explore. So all isn’t lost.

    Thanks for sharing the information. You have probably helped many more people avoid this.
