Package Forwarding & Reshipping Job or Scam?

This blog is supported by sponsored links & ads. But “Eddy with a y” only personally recommends companies I trust and researched.

Package Forwarding & ReShipping Job or Scam pic

It 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. 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 judgment. 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.

    People think that making money online means chasing down an elusive job or peddling crap to your friends & family that they don't need. That's just a recipe for losing patience & people that you like. Let's stop all that BS, there is a better way...

    I got an interview for the job position home base logistics manager, the company is called Intelligens Rem Temptationis HR Department or IRT. The interview lasted less than 10 min and same day, they sent me a contract to sign and requested me an ID. Thanks God I did research before sending my information. Although the company website looks legitim, the hiring process seem ridiculous, I have been looking for a job and it is never like that. The role for the position I was interviewed was the same thing you described before receiving and re shipping. I just wanted to let people know if you receive a call for the same company.

      Hey Ivette,

      I’m glad to hear you were able to dodge the bullet because of my article. I appreciate that you came here and shared your experience with this company so others can avoid it. Please spread the word and share this article with others.

    Trevor - July 18, 2017 Reply

    Hi this is good info thx for gathering!! The one thing I would add is that if you fall victim you should call your local authorities right away and explain what happened. That will be your best defense and that is the best way to try to catch the scammers (tho I don’t think current cyber crime departments are yet up to the task).
    Do you disagree with this step Eddy? Your blog almost scares people away from taking this step!?

      Eddy Salomon - July 18, 2017 Reply

      Hey Trevor,

      You’re very welcome. I’m not really sure if your local authorities are equipped or even aware of this type of scam. But the postal inspectors and some of these other sites I mentioned in the start snitching section do. So as long as you’re making some type of authority know, then you should be good.

    Does anyone has any information on WR CO. I am currently working with this company i just hope is not a scam.

      Eddy Salomon - July 15, 2017 Reply

      Like I said above. It doesn’t matter what the name of the company is. If you’re doing what I described and others have discussed in the comments you’re part of a scam. The best thing to do is read the article and follow the next steps to avoid any problems. You’ve been warned. I know people want to hope that their variation of the company is different. But it’s not. So don’t let desperation misguide you my friend.

    It is very helpful information. I also received the email for logistics supervisor position for a Australia company called WR Co.
    it is exactly the same as you described above. lucky I did not sign the contract. it looks suspicious to me.

    Hello Eddy,
    I got a quick question, how and where do I turn in a company that had me get packages and then never paid me. The company was Express Shopping Service from Hamburg, Germany. Was supposed to be paid after 20 days, the manager that I was dealing with said my money was on its way and that was 2 weeks ago. Was told to turn them in with the FBI but the website just gives me the wrong number. I tried to get a hold of that job but the number on their website was disconnected. Their website is http://www.xpshopservice.com. Their contact information is the following: Anckelmannsplatz 1, Hamburg 20537, Germany

    Here is another company to add to your list, USA Trading international. They were advertising on Indeed. I actually looked into the company and it was at one time a real company according to the FL SOS website. But they were dissolved in April of 2017. The scammers took on the name and created a separate login page. Here is the e-mail I was sent (I was also contacted by a Maria Brisker):

    USA Trading International makes it possible for international customers to make purchases at U.S. retailers even when those retailers do not offer overseas shipping options. As a mail forwarding company, we gather goods that have been purchased from retailers in the U.S. and then deliver them to the end customers anywhere in the world. Our service is reliable, safe, efficient, and cost effective, making us one of the leading names in the postal address rental industry. Our services are used by individual customers making single purchases from U.S. retailers, and overseas businesses to establish a more long-term logistics partnership arrangement. Setting up international distribution and logistics operations in the U.S can often be complex, but our solution makes this process easy.

    We already have an established shipping network infrastructure that our customers and our employees can take immediate advantage of. Our employees also benefit because of our unique business model that doesn?’t involve operating expensive warehouses. Instead, our distribution chain is made up of remote employees who are located across the United States. These people work from home or their private office, which is an increasingly popular career and lifestyle choice.

    You can join this network too and become one of our shipping agents. The process of getting set up and fulfilling the requirements is straightforward, and you will get a consistent monthly income. The main requirement is that you live in the continental U.S. and are available to work from home or your private office during normal business hours. This is necessary so that you are able to receive deliveries at your address.

    More detailed requirements are below. If you meet the criteria, join our distribution network today!

    Requirements:
    1. Deliveries are made during the day between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m by carriers such as FedEx, USPS, and UPS at your address. You will have to be at your address, whether it is your home office or a private business address, during those hours so you can receive the deliveries. You cant have another full-time job as this will invariably affect your ability to carry out your duties as a shipping agent.
    2. You will need a reliable form of transportation so you can take the packages to the post office for forward delivery.
    3. Each parcel and package must be treated with the utmost care and attention. Customers use us because of the quality of our service, and treating each package we handle with the utmost care helps us deliver consistently high standards.
    4. You must be self-motivated and responsible.
    5. The packages you will be handling can weigh as much as 30 pounds. You must be physically capable of handling packages that are this heavy.
    6. You will need a reliable and fast Internet connection as well as daily access to a printer and any kind of digital camera.
    7. Previous experience in logistics management is beneficial, although it is not a prerequisite.
    Duties:
    1. You will start each working day by logging into our online portal. This is where you will see the packages you can expect on that particular day, plus you can print the prepaid shipping labels for those packages at this time.
    2. Next, you simply wait for the deliveries to arrive. This could by DHL, USPS, FedEx, or UPS.
    3. Once the package has been received, you should complete an inspection to ensure it meets our standards of quality.
    4. You will then process the package in order to forward it to its final destination.

    Compensation

    Members of our distribution network receive $2,000 a month in compensation. All agents who handle more than 50 packages in a calendar month receive a bonus of $500. Any expenses you incur in the course of completing your duties are also reimbursed. This includes the cost of fuel to get to the post office, packaging costs, and the cost of Internet access. We do not require you to make any investment whatsoever. We will send you a W-2 form each year, as is required by law. This will outline the taxes that have been withheld.

    Getting Started

    If this opportunity sounds appealing to you and it is suited to your current home-based freelancer career or lifestyle, please get in touch with us. Submit an online application form, which you can find on our application portal. You can find the link and vacancy code in the attached file.

    I have been working for a company called First Shipped (http://uc.firstshipped.com/sign_in). Same thing, receiving and inspecting, printing out their pre-paid labels and dropping them off with FedEx or UPS. Now the 30 day probationary period is over I have not received anything from them. Today I was not able to log into the so called DASHBOARD to check status of new and sent packages. After writing a professional email to the “manager” and when I could not log in, I started doing research and your article.

    I will follow your instructions, but I have sent about 20 packages already, I feel so stupid and extremely upset.

    Just to warn other people the company name is First Shipped, and Assisting Manager is Robert West.

    What should I do now? Am I in serious trouble?

    I have been working for a company called Logistics Star llc. Same thing, receiving and inspecting,, printing out their labels and dropping them off with FedEx or UPS. Now that it is time to get paid after the 30 day probationary period, I have not received a check even though they supposedly mailed it a week ago. Today I was not able to log in to the website to check tasks, even though I received a package. I didn’t want to get in trouble. When I could not log in, I started doing research and found your site. I will follow your instructions, but I have sent so many packages already, I feel like an idiot.

    I got an email like this today. It’s not from a company, it sounds like they changed the scam to make it more personal. That way there is no company name to verify:

    Hi ,
    My name is Brian Martins, I am looking for someone who can handle my personal and business errands at his/her spare time. Someone who can offer me these services: Mail services: Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS (nothing illegal). Shop for Gifts ,Bill Payment Sit for delivery( at your home) ,Purchase of Electronics , pick items up at nearby post office at your convenience.

    Let me know if you will be able to offer me any of these services. I should probably tell you more about the job…… This job is flexible so you can do it wherever you are available and if there is a post office in the area. In addition to that, I don’t mind you doing all of the tasks during your spare time outside of work or school.. I wish I could meet up with you to talk about this job in person but I am currently away on business. I am in usa so there will be no interview. I will prepay you in advance to do my shopping and have my mails/packages forwarded to your address. If you will be unable to stay at home to get the mails, I can have them shipped to a post office near you and then you can pick them up at your convenience.
    All errands will be in your city/town so It is not a must that you have a car for the job, you can go places by bus or taxi. When you get my mails/packages; you are required to mail them to where I want them mailed to. You won’t have to put money out of your pocket, all you have to do is have packages shipped to your house and do my shopping.

    You are allowed to open the packages to reveal the content. The content of the packages will be business and personal mails… All expenses and taxes will be covered by me. You will work between 15 and 20 hrs a month. How much will you charge per week? I will pay $400 Weekly.. That is not a bad offer is it? I need your service because I am constantly out of town. I will return to CANADA in a week so this process will be on going till then. If you don’t mind, I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this long term.

    Well, let me know if you are able to handle the position.

    Thanks for your time.

    I await your prompt response,

    Brian Martins

    Looks like I fell victim, but at least they didn’t get any financial information prior. I worked for them for a couple weeks. Daily contact, always responded to my chat requests, etc. Website, BBB, etc. look legit, but why would Asurion send something to me in the US for me to send to someone else in the US. Asurion would send it straight to the customer. This is when it clicked, that and I came across this site. I asked my “manager” to provide proof that the company was legit and above board, and she gave me their FEIN, which I can’t verify without spending money, and the IRS won’t give out any information on it. The BBB said that they were not accredited and a scam warning was posted in their comments for the company. When I told the lady that I was finished with them and that she could not give me proof of their company being legit, she said I had to continue working because I signed a contract, and that I had to send them a 2 week notice, and continue working in the meantime… All the while, without getting paid. So I am just going to report them, return to sender the packages, contact the postal service and keep reviewing them on sites, to make sure others don’t get caught up in what seemed to me, a legit opportunity. The BBB even said that they’ve been in business for many years, but that doesn’t mean they are legit. The whois has the same info as their business and when put up on the map, the one address is a residence and the other is a industrial building, but that would be any business. I can’t see without going there and I live in a different state. When asked why they weren’t accredited, they said because they had moved locations and that it was in the process and would be updated in 1-2 months. I will paste the information I have received below, and if you want more information, please let me know and I will provide it.

    The company is called Hollywood Global Shipping Company AKA Servpkg.com

    BEWARE: It all looks legit, and the employees play along like it is…

    ***********************

    Here is a reminder of your basic job responsibilities:

    – Your working hours are 9AM till 5PM by your local time, Monday – Friday. Federal holidays are excluded.

    – The database will be the a tool you use to monitor the orders, download/upload images and documents,
    and stay in touch with me, and with other departments from later on. You have to log in every morning at 9AM and
    attend to orders and messages.

    – You are expected to be available for deliveries at you registered address within working hours. You are also
    expected to be easy reachable by phone within this time.

    – You have to monitor the database every 1-2 hours.

    – You have to respond chat messages/e-mails within 1-2 hours.

    – You have to process (check, prepare and ship) orders on the day of delivery, or latest on the next day.

    – You have to update the information into the database in a timely manner.

    – You have to report me about any problems, delays, and changes.

    – You are supposed to have a computer,a printer and a digit camera.

    *********************
    STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTION FOR PROCESSING YOUR ORDERS.

    1. Begin your day by checking the list of orders in your DB and incoming messages.
    List of orders will be displayed on the main page of the database once you logged in.
    Messages are available in the CHAT section. Identification number (ID #) for each package is located in the first column.
    When reporting about any package please write/say this ID so that I can find it quickly among hundreds of packages in the DB.

    2. Tracking number allows you to know when to expect the delivery of each package.
    Click on the tracking number to see the delivery schedule for the package.

    3. There are 4 buttons for each order that correspond with 4 main steps you have to do to complete the order: REPORT, UPLOAD PHOTO, SHIP, RECEIPT.

    4. When package is received – check the contents carefully to make sure it matches the description in the DB.
    Click REPORT button in the DB to confirm that everything is as expected or report about any discrepancies/damages of the contents via CHAT.
    All gadgets have to be tested. Turn the gadget on and off to make sure that it works. IMPORTANT: DO NOT OPEN ANY HARD FACTORY SEALING.

    5. You have to take 4 pictures for each order: a picture of the original shipping label on the box, picture of original invoice that came
    inside the box and 2 pictures of the item from different angles.
    Transfer pictures to your computer and upload them by clicking UPLOAD PHOTO button, one picture at a time.
    Images have to be uploaded for EACH item.

    6. Order is considered as ready for shipment, when you REPORTed it and UPLOADed PHOTO. Then, our shipping department starts preparing and
    uploading pre-paid shipping documents.
    It usually takes 1-2 hours. Meanwhile, remove original shipping label and other stickers from the box, remove original invoice.
    Once documents are ready – SHIP button become active. Click it to get into the SHIP section. Here you DOWNLOAD SHIPPING LABEL and DOWNLOAD INVOICE.
    Download both and print.

    7. Put new invoice inside the box, attach new label outside the box with the clear tape and pack the box securely.
    In most of the cases you can use the box the item came in.

    8. Make a note of new label’s tracking number. It is located under the bar-code. It is a long number which usually starts with digit “4”.

    9. Proceed to the post office to drop off the package. Request PO clerk to give you a receipt for the shipment.
    If the clerk refuses to issue the receipt – request him to stamp an extra copy of the shipping label.
    As you understand, you have to print this extra copy of the label beforehand and have it with you for such a case.

    10. Once package is shipped, log into the database and go to the SHIP section again. Enter the tracking number (new one) into the appropriate field.
    Enter ONLY digits. DO not enter any other symbols, text or spaces.
    IMPORTANT: you have to update the tracking number in the database ONLY AFTER package is actually shipped.
    NEVER do it before the shipment.

    11. To complete the order, take a picture of the PO receipt (or stamped copy of the label), transfer it to your PC and click RECEIPT button to upload that image. After this step order is completed.
    ********************
    Please note that each label is valid for 2 business days. To avoid delays, make sure that you use
    each label either the day it is uploaded or the following day. If the package is shipped with an outdated label,
    it may not be accepted, be held at the post office for pickup or be returned to you.

    Each shipping label has to be signed to be accepted at the post office. Sign it under the bar code.
    Failure to do so will cause delays in the shipping process. In case the post office refuses to accept the package due
    to underpaid postage label – we will provide you with the new shipping labels with the correct amount paid.
    To save time please double check the weight of the package on the original and new shipping labels.
    Most of the time they are accurate so weight discrepancies and underpayment of the labels don’t happen very often.

    Status of each Order.

    You check the status of each delivery by clicking on its tracking number. New window will open, delivery schedule will be on your screen.
    If you notice the following status of the delivery: Intercept / return to sender- that means the customer canceled this order or we have
    not received payment confirmation and therefore canceled it from our side. Such orders will be removed from your control panel.
    If it is still in your system after 48 hours please notify your manager via the CHAT.

    Receiving a package.

    It is crucially important to receive all deliveries on the day scheduled by the delivery company. In some cases, missed deliveries
    may be re-delivered the next day, but they may be also sent back to sender if were not accepted at first delivery attempt.
    The carrier also sometimes has an option to hold the package at the local facility for you to pick up and not to make any other attempts.
    If the package is not under your name, you are not authorized to pick it up. You need a special authorization letter from sales manager
    and a copy of his ID to pick the package up. Your manager will provide you with the required paperwork but you should avoid such delays
    and be available to accept each delivery at the first delivery attempt.

    Sending a package.

    Target processing time for all orders is the same day. It is expected that you require maximum 2 hours after delivery to get the
    package ready for shipment (report, check the contents, take and upload images, etc). So any orders delivered to you 2 hours
    before PO’s closing time should be shipped the same day. An exception is when you have several deliveries scheduled for a day,
    and some of them delivered late. You have to wait for all the deliveries. Some orders may not have the shipping documents for 1 or
    more days. These are the orders, which are missing customer’s shipping instructions, or waiting for other item to be consolidated
    with. This is not your responsibility. Your responsibility is to accept, report and inspect the item(s), take and upload images,
    and use the shipping documents properly.

    When order is delivered, reported by you, images uploaded and you see no shipping documents available for downloading within 1-2 hours –
    request the status via chat. Your manager will let you know whether to expect the documents this day or not.

    Unlisted Orders.

    Sales managers may sometimes fail to add the order to the control panel or some orders may be followed with the promotional items sent
    by the supplier. You must report about any received un-listed items by clicking on the ORDERS->ADD NEW button, then fill and submit the form
    through the database. After identification, it will be added to your list shortly.

    Consolidated orders

    Inside the SHIP section you can see if order is going as a single package (in this case you will see only 1 item in the list) or has to
    be consolidated with other item(s) (in this case inside the ship section you will see a list of the items). Always carefully check the
    information inside the SHIP section.

    If you need to consolidate several items into one order and you cannot use any of the original boxes you should be able to find another
    useable box for the consolidation. Please do not remove manufacturer’s packaging in the attempt to make items fit. Whenever you have Priority Mail
    shipping label – you can get/order a box at the PO for free – just present the Priority Mail label. It is recommended that you have/get/keep
    several old boxes of different size at home just in case for a consolidation matter. It is not that is required often, however this should not be a
    matter of delay in processing.

    Please note that if you have only one set of shipping documents for several items it means you have to consolidate them into one box.
    One set of documents cannot be used to ship separate boxes and is considered by the postal service as a shipping label electronic manipulations.

    Always double check the items that you consolidate. In case you ship 2 or more items you should place all of them into one box and ship it out as one
    order using only one set of shipping documents printed from the DB.

    International orders

    During your probation month you will be dealing with domestic orders. However you may have 1-2 international orders as well. Shipping labels and
    invoice procedures are a little bit different for international orders. When you print the documents for international order, you will find that
    4 pieces of the shipping labels are located on 2 pages. Only the last one is the sender’s copy and you should keep it for your record. You have to
    attach the remaining (3) labels to the package in a special plastic envelope outside the box. This envelope will be provided at the PO. Do not forget
    to sign all 4 copies. One of them is a custom declaration. You do not have to fill out anything – all the required information is already filled out.
    You only have to sign all 4 pages.

    You have to print 2 invoices for all United Kingdom (Great Britain) shipments. One copy goes inside the package and the second one should be attached
    outside the box together with the shipping labels.

    Important: always check the destination on the new shipping label. If destination is different from the United States, it means that the order is
    international and a special procedure is applicable. Incorrect using of international shipping labels leads to long delays and additional expenses.
    AVOID THIS MISTAKE! It is also compulsory to read Help->USPS shipping labels guide section in the CRM.

    Letters

    Your job is to accept packages AND correspondence. Whenever you receive a letter/envelope which is not in your name, keep it unopened and send the following
    message through the chat to report about it.

    “I have accepted a letter for [name on the letter] today (or the date it has been received)”

    ************************
    Inside our CRM system, you will find HELP section which consists of 3 additional articles:
    Terms and FAQ, USPS shipping labels guide, and graphic User Guide.
    You have to read them once you have an access to the system.
    You will be provided with your login details soon.
    **********************
    The CRM is https://www.transvc.com and then you enter your email and their provided password.
    ********************
    Here are some answers to common questions you may have at this stage.

    1. Why packages are not in my name?
    You may see the names of our company’s managers or customers’ on the package – in such a way company/customer remain the owner of the package during all delivery stages.
    If the customer cancels the order or adds something to it we need to contact the delivery service as the owner of the package to request the return or any other delivery changes.
    Also, our managers have to be able to monitor and track all their assigned orders easily.
    Packages may also be delivered not under your name as a security measure due to the Company’s regulations for shipping expensive packages.

    2. When will I receive my first payment?
    You will receive the payment for your probation/training period in 30 days after you process your first order.
    After you are hired on a permanent basis you will receive your payment on the 27th of each month and can also choose biweekly payment option.

    3. What is the procedure of payment that falls on non-business days?
    You will get paid the next business day.

    4. I want to go on vacation, will it affect my pay?
    You have to inform me minimum 7 business days before you plan to leave.
    Please, tell me exact dates when you will be absent. You are not supposed to leave during your probation.
    You are eligible for 28 days of vacation per year, which may be used in blocks not exceeding 2 weeks.

    5. How many packages will I receive each week? Will the amount of packages that I process affect my pay?
    You are going to start with 3-9 packages during the training and go up to 40 per week when you work on a regular basis.
    Your salary is not affected by the quantity of packages you process.

    6. What should I do if I receive an envelope in the name of the customer/Company’s manager?
    Anytime you receive a letter/correspondence addressed to one of our customers/managers you should keep it unopened and contact your personal Manager for further instructions.
    During your probation period you have no authorization to work with any paperwork.

    7. How do I track and receive packages?
    You have to be always available to accept scheduled deliveries.
    In case you may not be available (important doctor’s appointment, family emergency etc.) – make sure someone (family member, close friend, trusted person) can accept packages on your behalf. Instruct this person properly in such cases. To avoid costly delays, packages must be received the day they are scheduled for the delivery.
    You have to log in to the database daily to monitor the information and ETA (estimated time of arrival) of each package.

    8. What carrier service will I use for shipment?
    USPS is the main carrier we use to send packages. However shipments with FeDex and UPS are possible sometimes.
    The information about carrier will be provided on the new shipping documents.
    When you receive and print new shipping documents it will be clearly visible on the shipping label whether it is USPS, FeDex or UPS shipping
    label and you have to send the package via appropriate carrier office.

    9. I uploaded the pictures few hours (a day ago), but there’s still no label, what’s wrong?
    New shipping documents will be available when the client pays for them, in most of the cases documents are available within few hours, but sometimes it takes longer.

    10. What should I do if the post office refuses to give me a receipt?
    Sometimes PO may refuse to give you the receipt. As postage is pre-paid some post offices are not able to print the receipt without actually taking money from you.
    You should ask the PO clerk to put a post office stamp on the last copy of the shipping label, the sender’s copy, take a picture of it and upload it to the database
    as the proof of shipment. The stamp has a current date and the address of the PO.

    11. What should I do if the status of an incoming package states “incorrect address”?
    Anytime you receive an “incorrect address” status, or anything similar, that means the carrier cannot locate you to deliver the package.
    You must immediately contact the local post office/courier service (UPS, FeDex, DHL) and clear up the confusion.

    12. Is it okay to destroy an original invoice?
    Once you upload the picture of it to the DB you may destroy it.

    13. Package came without the original invoice.
    The shipper didn’t include it. Sometimes original invoices are sent to our office directly, it is normal, please proceed with the package as usual.

    Friday, March 03, 2017

    Welcome to our team and nice to meet you!

    At the moment you have two options to receive your pay:
    – Direct deposit
    – Check by mail

    For direct deposit you have to submit direct deposit authorization form from your bank.
    For mailed check I need you to confirm that it can be mailed to the same address
    that we have in your CRM profile. If you want it to be sent to a different address –
    please advise this address including a zip code.

    As you probably already know, your actual start day will be setup once you process your
    first order. This day will be considered as your start day and will be reflected in the
    CRM system: My Account -> Account details – Account Open Date. Date of each next payday
    will be displayed there as well.

    In reference to your first payment it is required that you email me 3 business days
    before your first payday to re-confirm that your preferred payment method and
    payment information remains unchanged. You will receive necessary tax forms in reply.

    You are on a probation period. At the end of it, your manager will submit his report on
    your performance to our management team which will consider offering you a permanent
    position. If you are offered a permanent position, you will have to complete and submit
    IRS W-4 tax form and USCIS I-9 form before we process your payment. If not – your
    probation month will be considered as an independent contractor basis and we will send
    you your 1099-MISC form followed by your paycheck.

    So when you email me 3 days before your first payday, I will provide you with the necessary tax forms.

    For your probation month you earn $2000 base rate + $100 transport expenses compensation = $2100/month

    After successful completion of a probation period, once you are on a permanent position, you have an option of bi-weekly payments.

    On a permanent position you earn $2300 base rate + $200 transport expenses compensation = $2500/month

    Sometimes you may have some job-related expenses such as clear tape, ink cartridges, printer, camera etc. You are eligible for reimbursement against receipts for such purchases. You have to submit them to me via email.

    I wish you a good luck on this position and all the best. Hope you enjoy working in our team and pass your probation worthily.


    Thank you,
    Carl Fletcher/ Payroll Dept.

    The BBB link shows that you are not accredited and that there is 1 negative scam review listed from earlier in the month. I will look into your FEIN for further verification.

    Abby Klein27 Mar 2017
    Our Company was accredited with the Better Business Bureau , however recent status changed due to re-accreditation process associated with the relocation of the company to the city of Morgan Hill. This should be fixed within a month or two.

    I have provided you with all the possible proof that I’m able to provide, the flow of the company id quite big and unfortunately we have no time to deal with every case of mistrust, you could have made your background check before you had signed a contract.

    Been working for a guy name Victor Rivera doing shipping and repackaging. Now that the time has come for me to get paid, he has many excuses and will not take my call. Has anyone ever heard of Next step logistics LLC?

      Hey Debbie,

      As I mentioned above, it doesn’t matter what the name of the company is or the person you’re working with. If it sounds like what I described above you need to follow the steps I listed because you’re a victim of this scam. I know people want to hold out that it may be different for them but it won’t be. So just accept it for what it is and take the steps I laid out to avoid any issues.

    Thanks for expressing your interest in the vacancy.

    US Trading and Logistics has become a trusted name in the postal address rental industry and has enabled thousands of international customers to enjoy products from U.S. retailers that don’t normally offer shipping overseas. For national and international customers around the globe, we serve as a reliable mail forwarding and cloud-based mail management partner. To put it simply, we gather the desired goods from the U.S. retailers and then safely deliver them to destinations around the globe at a reasonable cost.

    Individual citizens and larger companies rely on our services for direct purchasing or for logistics partnerships. The process of international logistics and distribution can be extremely complicated, but our approach eliminates many of those obstacles. By establishing a global mailing network, the deliveries are accomplished faster, and everyone benefits—the retailers, network employees, and international customers. This strategy eliminates the need for large warehouses, significantly lowering costs while also benefiting from a unique distribution system formed by remote employees across the globe. Working from home and freelancing have become popular options in recent years, and our company structure is highly appealing to those professionals.

    If you want to join this constantly expanding network of international distributors, it’s actually quite easy, and you can add a consistent revenue stream to your income! The primary requirement to be a shipping agent for the company is working from home, or being at home during normal working hours. Beyond maintaining a high presence at home to receive deliveries, you also need to live in the continental United States.
    If you fit within the requirements outlined below (and above), then you’re a prime candidate to join our network!

    Job Requirements:

    1. In order to receive and handle all deliveries, you must be at your home office or designated private business address from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
    2. We deal with major international carriers and postage companies, including UPS, USPS, and FedEx; your address must be accessible for delivery by these carriers.
    3. A secondary full-time job is prohibited as it will compromise the quality and reliability of your work.
    4. This job will involve regular trips to the post office, so reliable transportation is essential to perform all of the required tasks.
    5. The company’s reputation and future success is dependent on customer service, so only the highest standards of care for parcels and packages will be acceptable.
    6. Self-motivation and a strong sense of responsibility is crucial to success in this job.
    7. In terms of physical tasks, packages can weigh up to thirty pounds, and workers must be able to regularly and safely handle this amount of weight.
    8. To do this job effectively and efficiently, members of our distribution network will need a fast Internet connection, a digital camera, and a printer.
    9. Any type of logistics management experience or prior work as a delivery professional is preferred for members of our network, but it is not required.

    Primary duties:

    1. Login to our company’s online portal to monitor your daily workload, and download and print prepaid shipping labels.
    2. Accept parcels and letters sent to your residential or private business address via USPS, DHL, UPS, and FedEx.
    3. Inspect packages and photograph contents of packages to ensure quality standards are met.
    4. Process, and then forward both packages and letters to their destinations.
    5. Remain in communication with our office through phone and email.

    Compensation

    If you are accepted into our international distribution network, you will receive a monthly compensation of $2,000. A $500/month bonus is also available for all delivery agents who receive and handle more than 50 packages per month.
    As a network member, there will be a number of inherent expenses, such as fuel costs, packaging materials, and Internet access. We do not require any personal investment on the part of our distribution agents, so all of these expenses will be reimbursed!
    According to standard tax law, all distribution agents will receive a W-2 form at the end of each year, reporting what relevant taxes have been withheld.

    How Can I Get Started?

    I have been hired by this company as a shipping inspector and i dont know if its a scam. They did have me fill out a employment agreement with blue ink only and had me to do a w2 form. I have been doing as they asked and that is get packages in open them inspect the contents, take pics, upload invoices and ship out. been corresponding with them all the way up to today and thats when i was supposed to get my first check. I dont know what to do.

    KT - November 17, 2016 Reply

    My lady and I unfortunately became victims of this scamming company called USA ProPack. We suspected it to be kind of weird based on the initial emails we’ve received but she decided to follow through before me and begin corresponding via email with the fraudulent company and looked them up. She said at first everything seemed legit and they begin sending packages. Then I begin to follow suit and started getting more suspicious as I thought about it. Well always follow your first instance is what you learn early in life. We begin doing some more research on the company and things didn’t add up. We tried calling the numbers on shipping labels and none for them were working. They also called me from “BLOCKED NO CALLER ID” numbers. Thats when I knew it was not legit and immediately emailed them and told them not to send me anything and informed my girl to do the same. We then begin reading some online reviews in regards to “work from home scams” and your website popped up. Long behold the same experiences your viewers are sharing is the identical situation we have. She’s only received 4 packages and sent off 2 unfortunately but now we are returning the other 2 packages to there sender immediately! Please be on the look out for this company! Randell Hayes, Tim Peldger are 2 of the people we corresponded with! If anyone sees this company or heard about them, REPORT REPORT REPORT!!!!!!

    My Paypal account was charged for $2400 for cellphones and I still have the name and address for the person that I believe must be the mail middleman. Unfortunately, he is a retired Sheriff of the county he lives in, and I doubt if local law would be interested in him. I got the order cancelled, so no money was lost and I’m sure no goods were shipped, but I would like this looked into. What do you think?

      Eddy Salomon - September 5, 2016 Reply

      Hey Jess, I’m glad you were able to get your money back.
      I would still follow the tips listed in the article above. The name of the middleman may not be the actual person engaged in this. So it’s probably not the sheriff you think it is. But they could be using his identity. So keep that in mind. Feel free to share any emails you got from the scammer here to help others avoid this scam.

    USA Logist is another scam company. I got a similar email from Career Builder for them and it is a scam. I have since filed a complaint with the FTC and the Attorney General’s office in Colorado where they are based and I hope they get shut down. The only money I lost was the monthly wage I was to get plus bonuses for packages processed($2580). These companies need to be held accountable for their actions.

    Hello,

    I received emails like Anida who posted in December 2015, basically word-for-word except a different company – the company contacting me is called AllGood Logistics, Inc.

    They have an active website and are even registered and current-active since 2011 with the Secretary of State in North Carolina so makes them look legit but couldn’t get the person contacting me to actually call me and when I tried calling them, the phone number is disconnected.

    I did try doing an internet search with their name and scam and there is not any complaints with this specific company name but like I said, exactly the same emails as Anida got with just different names.

    I was feeling like something wasn’t quite right so I’m really happy I found your website and looked through the comments!

    I just want to let people know about this company: eparceler LLC. when I was “hired” I looked up job scams, it just seemed too easy to be a job. and I found nothing on this particular company. and the company website looked legit. but I still had unanswered questions. why are these packages coming to me for me to just turn around and ship them to someone else.
    the person I was communicating with seemed very fake and the packages weren’t in my name that they sent. I wish I would have found this site before I got caught up in this. I never even got money. or in trouble for anything. which I’m lucky for. I cant imagine how mad I would feel if I got in trouble.

    Hi Eddy,

    Thank you for the article and for posting everyone’s experiences with this scam. I just received the emails below and I was in the process of “getting hired” when that little voice in my head said “if it sounds too good to be true”. I then started searching the internet for any information about this type of service and came across several scam sites warning people to stay far away. I have even spoken with a woman who claims she would be my supervisor. I could not understand a word she said which further deepened my suspicions that it was a scam. I am an intelligent, college educated person and I almost fell for it. Thankfully I did not send them any personal information other than my name and address. I certainly will not continue on with the hiring process and will report the website, names used and the phone number that was used to call me to the authorities.

    Please everyone run far, run fast and remember if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t let your desperation cloud your judgement when it comes to making money online. I have been scammed more than once, but I still continue to search for that elusive work-at-home position that will provide me with a decent income for an honest day’s work. I know it exists and I will keep searching.

    I fell victim to this as well. I have worked for the company for a month and when it came time to get paid, the phone numbers all of a sudden didn’t work and I can’t get into the dashboard. Needless to say that I did not get paid any of the money for the work that I had been doing all month. I had talked to my supervisor with that company everyday for that month that I worked for them. Here is the copy of the ad that I received. No money exchanged hands and they even sent me shipping material. I still have about 10 boxes in my garage that I haven’t taken care of yet. I have gained a reference number from the Federal Trade Commission and with your advice I also put a complaint in with the Postal Service. No response from either yet.

    Set about a interesting stable work at home career in Shipping with no investment or initial expenses.

    You have the possibility to work all alone without excessive control. Your salary is $2500 payable monthly.

    The vacant position doesn’t expect you to work at office everyday. You may keep within doors and enjoy time with everything and everyone you like during the day.

    This high-paid job vacancy is proposed by a large US shipping enterprise which allows its foreign customers to receive shipments in the United States and then send it to their point of destination via an efficient cloud-based system. The customers are especially companies from oversea that have customers in the U.S. or purchase and sell goods in USA.

    Responsibilities:

    – Enter your online profile at the company’s site to get a list of current packages, your daily assignments, and the pre-paid shipping documents for forwarding the mail and boxes.
    – Be at home to receive parcels and mail forwarded to your legal or business address by USPS, UPS, and FedEx during regular working hours.
    – Send the mail to customers by applying invoices and pre-paid shipping markings and delivering the mail to the nearest USPS point.
    – The packages usually include everyday items such as, electronics or sports articles.

    Key Requirements:

    – U.S. resident with a postal address.
    – The things you need to have include a computer with a printer and any digital camera.
    – Use a transportation for delivering the letters and parcels at a stated time or live near USPS offices.
    – Desire to work all alone without excessive control.
    – Physical ability to lift up to 23 lb.
    – The job is full-time and is not combined with another occupation.

    If you want to get started with our employment opportunity, please send us your response to this email. Expect further information from us within 48-76 hours.

    I have all of my information and will forward all of it to the authorities. This company address goes to a UPS store. Where they had me ship the package was to another UPS store. There wasn’t a company name on the package when received and they printed my name on the shipping label. The 800 number on one of the websites said their marketing director is Christine C. Dendy and when i call it was a hotel reservation customer service line. When i call any number i was given for them, no one ever answers no matter what number you press. 941-877-5724 & 941-877-5724 & 800-800-8000 & 800-781-0318. Finally I called the BBB and they couldn’t find a company under the phone numbers I had nor the the business name. Fortunately they pulled it up under the LLC. #L15000148571. This brought up information about a company but nothing to solidify who they were and what they were in business for.

    I hope this helps. As for me Lesson learned.

    There’s nothing legitimate about this outfit. The first parcel I was to ship was to a Russian address but with the country listed as Finland. The second parcel I sent got intercepted by Australia Post here and I got a phone call from the security team at AusPost saying this outfit are scammers buying stuff with stolen credit cards and re-selling the goods on the Russian black market. My local police are aware of this now and I’ve told this “Daniel” fellow to stop sending stuff, as the police and AusPost are intercepting it all.

    I regret ever falling for this scam, and I’m just glad it never cost me a cent or got me into legal trouble. Just a cautionary tale for anyone else interested.

We work with overseas companies that purchase and sell goods from the U.S., and with individuals who travel abroad frequently. Many U.S. retailers do not deliver outside the USA.

    We continuously innovate and add value for clients. We do this by utilizing hi-tech solutions, efficient warehousing techniques and HR methods. Our telecommuting approach allows us to offer the widest number of mail forwarding addresses.

    The job.

    This role is suitable for you, if you spend the majority of your day at home and don’t have a full-time employment.

    Duties :

    a prerequisite.

    What we offer:

    – Basic pay of $24,000 ($2000 payable monthly)
    – Performance pay ($500 per month maximum) for handling 50+ client orders per month – A refund of all costs, including internet access costs, packaging costs,
    and fuel
    – All relevant taxes will be deducted before we send your salary. At year end, we will send your W-2 form, listing your wages and deductions for tax

    Safety and Security.

    We take your safety and security seriously. Every package you handle will contain everyday items: consumer electronics, clothes, car parts, sports items, etc. We accept only fully paid items and work only with verified clients. Each client undergoes a phone interview. Then they must send in two forms of ID, plus a USPS 1583 form, signed by a notary.

    Considering us?

    Join the millions of Americans now choosing to telecommute. The last US Census illustrated the rapidly growing number of people doing this. A recent report by World at Work, a non-profit, found that 75% of people, when offered the opportunity to work remotely, reported an extremely positive effect on job satisfaction.

    Please read our contract, then print and complete the enclosed application form and return it to us via email or fax.

    Hello – you can add Shipping Across Management to the list of companies doing the “reshipping” scam. Rec’d an email from Olivia Johnson with all of the typical wording associated with this scam. Had an “application” attached, (which I did not open.) The email indicated that the website address for the company was am-shipping.com which redirects you to a legitimate looking website for Shipping Across Management. If anyone else receives the same email don’t waste your time and just let it go . . .

    Good afternoon!
    My name is Erica Lee, and I’m HR manager in the international company – Shiply LTD. I have received your resume, and we want to offer you a position of Shipping inspector, which is available at this moment. I have attached the job description, please reply if you are interested. We have a paid training period (4-7 days).
    If you are NOT interested, just inform me so i wont have to email you twice

    I know it’s fake.
    First of off. I do not open any attachments in email from people I do not know.
    Secondly, I’ve contacted this company. Because it’s a real company. I told them about this.

    How I found this site, whenever I get a job offer of craigslist. I always copy the email and paste it into google. The first link was this site.

    People are looking for legitimate work, and you have all these BS scammers out there.
    I never had any job offers through craigslist. I’ve found a few legit jobs on there. But I always contact them first.

    Oh my god I believe that I am involved in this scam and I am wishing I had done a search and found this page last month. I’m working for the Forwarding Group and I report Samuel Emerson who is my supervisor, is listed as the HR Manager. I received an email that got my information from CareerBuilder with the job details and link to apply online. The website appeared genuine and even has other name brand stores and vendors. The email said that the company was expanding rapidly and had a need to outsource the shipping for the company. I had to complete a application and after being accepted, I also had to complete an Employee Agreement much like the one that I have done for other jobs. I was confirmed officially hired after that and I was given a user ID and password for ship-panel.com where I would login to check for incoming packages and download the information and shipping labels. I was supposed to be paid 2000 a month but I could get a extra 500 if I shipped them out with in 24 hrs. I shipped out 8 packages over the month and when I tried to sign in a week ago I all of a sudden, could not sign in and of course, I was supposed to be paid for the first time a couple of days ago. I even sent a few follow up emails checking on my access and first check since I was thinking that it was just a glitch and something was incorrect when I first started but it was fixed. I was laid off in October 2014 and my Unemployment stopped and I have been working part time as a cashier and really needed the money until I got back to work in my field in. I even passed on another part time opportunity because I believed it. I have bills comimg due that I had already made arrangements on and I don’t know what to do. They even have my account information since I was supposed to be direct deposit. OMG this is horrible and I am not a criminal.

      Yes those were the exact same emails that I received. I have already saved mine and filed the online form for the post office this morning and I am about to file the second form for the government site momentarily. I still have the shipping labels on my phone that I downloaded from ship panel. com and I am hoping to use them to get the packages back to the rightful owners. I had them as a double check as I was shipping the packages so I could make sure that I had the right labels on the right box. But maybe I can get them back to the correct owners.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here are the names of 3 other companies that, while they look legit, are total scammers. Just thought that you and your readers might like to know…I too, fell victim myself, as I, just as many of you are, am unemployed and need to find work, however, we cannot let that situation cloud our judgement here… We must remain vigilant and w/Eddy’s help, we can help put a stop to this crap, or, at least deter another honest person from falling for it…

    -Linxu International Group-They are from China and claim to be legit, however, after your bogus website is set up, they steal credit card info and clean it up through bogus website purchases, you then, through your LLC, are to keep 10% and send them 90…Yeah right!

    -The next one’s listed are all packaging/re-ship scammers:
    -Safe Fulfillment, LLC-Unfortunately, I feel for this one and shipped a few things before I realized that it was a scam.
    -Borderlinx
    -Altair

    Finally, these last 2 are virtual assistant scams:
    -Moon, LLC-Fell for this one too, but got out before it was too late…
    -Sun, LLC

    I advise everyone to stay away from these clowns, regardless of what kind of garbage they might feed you…

    Hope this helps, folks…Take care and God bless!!!

    Susan Eckert - August 18, 2015 Reply

    I, too, fell for it. Out of work for a very long time, and desperate for money, I fell for it. As soon as I realized what might be going on, I stopped reshipping. I had only been doing it a couple weeks when I decided to do some research online and find out what was going on. My gut started to bother me–like, “What is wrong with this picture”. Sure enough, I found this site and I just wanted to kick myself. What was I thinking? Who knew that I would get caught up in something like this. I’m pretty smart normally, and skeptical, but when you need cash, you are blinded to the truth. Anyway, the company is called Arion Forwarding, LLC out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. They have a web site that looks authentic, they have a physical office with phone and fax numbers. They have a page on their website that encourages people to “find a career with Arion–being a Quality Inspector”. I was recruited through an email where they got my resume from CareerBuilders.com. It all sounded so upfront and legit. I got a supervisor named Patty Collins who would tell me what to do when packages showed up at my house. She would send me a new label and I would take it to the post office and ship it, after opening it and taking a photo of it, & sending it to her via email. They even had a Task Panel page that I logged into to see what was on it’s way to me. I reshipped six items, before I realized what was going on, and stopped immediately. This was just a few days ago and I am terrified that I will get arrested now. I don’t know what to do about this, since I did send six things out over the past three weeks. Screw the money. I just don’t want to see the police pull up to my house. I am so afraid. I did keep everything (correspondence with Ms. Collins and a Tyler James who recruited me). I even set up a spreadsheet that I have that had everything about the packages you could get. (columns for tracking #s, dates shipped, dates I received the product, when I got the label, and kept it up to date with where the product was (tracking) along it’s way. Two of the products went to the Ukraine and i was told because consolidating into one box, several things, cut down the cost of shipping directly. How I fell for that is beyond me. Dear God, I’m a criminal and I didn’t even know it. Help. Do I go to the police and tell them about this? I think maybe I should before they show up at my house first. I’m terrified right now. I’m a law abiding citizen and this just can’t be happening!

    Victoria Thompson - August 11, 2015 Reply

    Hello,
    I recently got involved with two drop shipping company scams. Express Product Mover (epromover.com) and Shipping Express Management. I had a gut feeling that they were scams but went with it anyway. After reading this and talking to my father who talked to the USPS. I immediately ended my contract with both of them. According to an USPS employee that my dad talked to “drop-shipping” is actually illegal in the US. I didn’t give anything personal besides my address to Epromover, however I gave my license to Shipping Express Management. How do I go about securing my license so they can’t order credit cards in my name or use my license to drive and commit traffic violations? My second question is what is the best way to go about sending back the items I still have but shouldn’t ship out? I no longer have the boxes the items came in, however I kept all the shipping labels that the items came in. I don’t think I can just tape them on another box and give back right? Is there a way to send them back to the company without having to pay out of pocket expenses? I’m on LOA (Leave of Absence) from my actual job. So I fell for this scam because it seemed like easy money until I can get back to work since disability pay isn’t my full amount.

      Eddy Salomon - August 12, 2015 Reply

      Hey Victoria,

      The scam isn’t really drop shipping. It’s basically just moving stolen products so I’m not sure why the postal person would refer to it as drop shipping which is a legitimate for of business that many companies employee.

      In any event, you can’t get your license information back from the scammers. If it were that easy to actually find them and they cooperated so easily they wouldn’t be in business. As I said in my article above you need to invest in some identity theft protection to stop at the very least them from creating new credit in your name. That’s what they want your license and other information for not to run red lights.

      I don’t have any advice for you about how to send the packages back. Try contacting the companies they were shipped from and see what they tell you.

      In any event, I’m sorry to hear you fell for this scam. As you’ve learned there is no such thing as easy money online just as there isn’t offline. At the very least you found this website and now you’ll be exposed to legit ways to make money. Thanks for sharing your experience, be sure to share this website with others so they don’t fall victim to this as well.

    Oh my god, I have been working with them for several months and I have no idea about this. I worked for two companies and both ended up with no payment to me and disappearing in any contact methods….

    What should I do now? Will I be arrested when I notify the local police?

    I read a thoroughly attached contract and sent in my signature of acceptance along with a copy of Driver’s License. Fortunately, I have an active security alert on my account, so no worries there.

    After about a week a was assigned a Supervisor Ms. Patty Collins. She communicated with me via email and their established Task Panel Website athttps://member.arionforwardingllc.com/login.php. Through email and the panel, I could see what packages were coming with tracking, the content, and whose name would appear on the package. I then would do my quality inspection by taking a picture, uploading it, and making a brief statement of the condition. Between hours and sometimes days, a shipping label would be avilable under the portal for me to ship via USPS or UPS and take another picture to confirm reciept of shipment and upload. It is then that the task would be complete. Unfortunately, before reading this and other scams about repackaging, I have sent the merchandise as directed by Ms. Collins. This included boxes of new shoes, Apple Ipads, camcorders, shirts, etc. My total shipments have been 16 out of 17 total tasks and oh how I wish I can go back and not have sent the first package. However, I have reported them to the USPS fraud department, IC3, BIzapedia, which shows they have a license number registered ashttp://www.bizapedia.com/business-services.aspx and a base office out of Fort Lauderdale. For more information on that click this linkhttp://www.bizapedia.com/fl/ARION-FORWARDING-LLC.html and other legit companies they have used to appear legit. My further actions include contacting the BBB, my local police office, FedEx, and UPS.

    I don’t know if I will also have to face consequences, but I am glad that I caught this sooner rather than later and will do my best to right my wrongs in this scam.

    Again, thank you!

      Hi Eddy,

      I see that you work on line and are selling information on how to do it. Is your program a legit site or scam? I to was offered a job at Forwarding Group.com. They received my resume from career builder as well. I am appalled that individuals can get our information from legit employment sites to use to there advantage. I am very skeptical these days about any company and did a thorough research on this company and found that they have an F rating on BBB and the number they provide is always busy. There website is very impressive and it is done using the new HTML 5 coding. Thank you for providing this information. Now we need to shut these people down.

      Hey Melissa,

      I’m happy you found my site. Unfortunately shady people will always find ways to use things that are legitimate for bad. It’s just the reality of the world we live in.
      I’m a little taken back by your question. If I was a scam artist I’m not going to tell you that I scam you. lol But that said most people will read articles like this and can tell immediately I’m here to help people avoid the crap out there. So it’s up to you to read my body of work and determine if you can trust me or not. I can’t convince you.
      That said if you want to read what the media thinks of me, feel free to read this.

    Thank you for your website, it assisted me in avoiding a scam. My sister shared with me a great job opportunity her co-worker shared with her. My sister said she was going to wait to see if her co-worker actually gets paid in two weeks. I didn’t want to wait but I wanted to research the company, packexpert.biz. First I could not access the site due to a warning that it may be malicious site. Then I tried an internet search by name, and I found Pack Expert LTD. It states it is a global packaging company, but when I called the number for a Derrick Brown, no one answered & no voice mail. So I tried a review search of the company. That’s how I came across your website. I learned that this was more than likely an illegal business of identity theft.
    I then did a Better Business Bureau search and found the following information…

    This business is not BBB accredited.
    Pack Expert, LTD
    Additional Locations

    Phone: (216) 647-0092 1660 W 2nd St, Cleveland, OH 44113 View Additional Email Addresses http://packexpert.biz !

    There is an alert on Pack Expert, LTD ! (this is in bold red letters)
    Additional Complaint Information

    This company first came to the attention of the Cleveland BBB in May of 2015. At that time a consumer reported the company had posted an online job offering for employment as a Forwarding Agent. Since then several consumers have reported receiving e-mail solicitations containing details of the offer along with an employment application.

    Active as recently as May 14, 2015, the company website, http://packexpert.biz, was no longer active on May 20, 2015. BBB is aware of two versions of the site. One references Pack Expert Ltd and includes a Cleveland, Ohio address. The other references Pack Expert LLC and includes a Boston, Massachusetts address.

    BBB was unable to locate any filings for Pack Expert Ltd with the Ohio Secretary of State and building management at the Cleveland, Ohio address confirmed the company is not a tenant.

    Similarly BBB found no filings for Pack Expert LLC with the Massachusetts Secretary of State and is in the process of contacting management at the Boston address.

    BBB advises consumers to be cautious of replies to their online job postings. Some warning signs include:

    * The position involves transferring money or goods.

    * The company is located in another country.

    * The position does not list education or experience requirements.

    * All interactions and transactions will be done online.

    * The offer promises significant earning potential for little effort.

    Consumers should also be aware of the potential for being a victim of Identity Theft. For that reason BBB advises consumers to monitor their credit reports for new, unauthorized accounts that might be established in their name. A free report may be obtained from each of the three major reporting agencies online at http://www.annualcreditreport.com.

    This review will be updated when more information is available.

I also reached out to Mckinsey and let them know the details I had for this, and offered to help them if I can. The sender has contacted me again to try to get me to sign up.

    Just came here cause I like knowing the emails I get like these are scams. I’m too smart to fall for something like this, but that’s because I’ve seen the news stories and such. I’m not saying that people who fall for this are stupid, everyone makes mistakes, but you made some great points for people that might be sucked into a scam like this and now feel helpless and I thank you on behalf of them for giving them some solid, accurate advice on what to do now, and giving a source for people who are smart enough to do a little bit of investigation before falling for a scam like this.

      Eddy Salomon - February 19, 2015 Reply

      Indeed. Ultimately we all make mistakes. I think the problem is too many people view the internet as something very easy and that there is always easy money to be made. But the fact is anything that is going to make you decent money online or offline requires some significant work and skills.

      If not then everyone can come online and make easy money. But I think we become so blinded by our own needs we suspend our common sense and instincts. But I’ll be here to remind people. Sometimes I get them early enough but unfortunately a lot of times I get them after the fact. Either way, it’s a lesson learned. At least it leads people here and they know there are people online that are providing useful and legitimate options. Thanks for chiming in.

      I’m sure many of the shipping scammers will gladly contact you since you’re choosing to ignore the whole article and hundreds of other comments where people have clearly started they were scammed by this nonsense. But good luck to you buddy.

    There is one other point that should be expressed about identifying scammers; all of the emails I have seen on this and other work-at-home employment schemes use questionable grammar and odd word phrasing. Even though the grammar is better than the Nigerian scam, there are enough quirks and consistent errors that are noticeable (missing commas, run-on sentences and non sequiturs are big giveaways). True, I am a bit more aware of these errors than most since I am a professional technical writer. Basically, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Thanks for including this discussion on your website.

      Eddy Salomon - February 11, 2015 Reply

      That is true to a certain degree. But that should definitely be coupled with some other things like research, common sense, etc. My articles are littered with spelling and grammatical errors and I’m not scammer. lol But I hear your point. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi,

    I am not a victim but rather one of the companies they use as a front. I’m getting 10-20 emails a day inquiring on a logistics position. Each person contacted has sent emails through my website seeking the non-existing HR person to contact. I have posted info on our facebook page and it’s getting a lot of traffic also. I have also linked this blog on it. Thanks for looking out for them!!

      Eddy Salomon - February 11, 2015 Reply

      Hey JW,

      I’m so sorry your company name is being dragged into this scam. That’s a common ploy of these scam artists so it confuses people into believing the scam is legitimate. But some people are smart enough to head to the company directly to see if the position is real. But then of course that puts an unnecessary strain on your staff to let people know that you aren’t hiring for this scam position. You may want to put a message on your contact us page letting people know you aren’t hiring for any reshipping positions and link to this article as you did on your FB page so you cover all bases.

      Thanks for spreading the word. Companies like yours are also victims in this nonsense as well. It’s unfortunate.

    Everyone, some of the work from home packaging jobs are legit. I have two and have no problems with them. Can’t ya’ll see that all the reviews are bad on purpose he is just trying to get ya’ll to switch over to his company. Do yo not see all the promotion if they are all fake then that means someone came up with the scam and everyone all over the world just followed that person. Also, these people have legit websites the F.B.I isn’t stupid they can back track I.P addresses and find the person who created that website. See things through before you accuse it to be false ya’ll missing out on thousands of dollars because people think things are too good to be true. He is just promoting his work from home business use multiple sources before you reject something to be false just saying.

      Sigh. Even if you don’t believe me and the hundreds of comments from people who have been scammed or avoided scams because of this article, just contact the postal inspectors with the information of any alleged legitimate work from home shipping job and see what they say.

      I’m in the business of helping people avoid scams and referring people to things that are legit. And yes I proudly get paid for doing so. I don’t hide it and I’m not ashamed of it. So it’s not like you’re revealing a dark secret I’m trying to hide.

      But folks can feel free to follow your advice and see where it leads them. I suspect that you’re probably one of the scammers and you’re upset people are getting wise to your scam because of this article. But feel free to try discredit me. My years of experience speak for itself.

    I’m so glad I found this website. I’ve been needing another part-time job to go along with my current part-time job to help make ends meet. I posted a job wanted ad on Craigslist and got a few responses from “employers” who want me to be a package shipper. I just had to do a Google search to feel at ease, because I cannot afford to lose money to a scam. I’m so glad I did. I have not officially started these jobs, but just told the employers that I’m interested. I’m not interested no more now that I know that these jobs may be scams. I’m going to send them a message later and tell them I changed my mind.
    Thank you so much for this article Eddy, you saved me big time!

    Brandy - January 29, 2015 Reply

    Wow, this is a huge scam judging from the comments! I just got scammed as well. Contacted by email to do shipping. I received the first package and when told it was not in my name immediately started to question how legitimate this might be. The company name seemed valid, the way the person who wrote me seemed intelligent. I emailed the lady back questioning their company and she sent me a long drawn out response. I’ve copied and pasted:

    **Brandy,

    There is a reason to ship it to NY.

    Our employees in NY are acting as a shipping consolidators. The packages may go in different cities in Russia. For example, a package contains a laptop and the final destination is Saint-Petersburg. The customs in Saint-Petersburg won’t let pass the laptop package with the battery included. All batteries have to be shipped separately. However, everything is ok with customs in Moscow.

    Of course you could do re-packaging but this would require expenses on packaging and we do everything possible to make sure the Corr Managers won’t have to pay anything out of pocket.

    The reason why we didn’t ship it directly to NY is simple. These laptops are on high demand in Russia and when we order them from the suppliers we don’t know the final destination until the very last moment. When a laptop(or a digital camera) package is on it’s way to you we may forward it to Moscow or to Saint-Petersburg or wherever in Russia depending on customer’s location. If the package destination was Moscow you would ship it directly to Moscow but since in was Saint-Petersburg the package required re-packaging. We have 4 employees in NY who do re-packaging perfectly and then forward packages to Russia – you’re sending the packages to one of them. They have a lot of job to do so they don’t act like Corr Managers(receiving/shipping packages from suppliers without re-packaging).

    Consolidating the packages is required when shipping clothes/shoes/accessories/other small packages – that’s the case with the package 1Z602E891346613368 you received yesterday. The Customs fee in Moscow, Russia is fixed for this type of merchandise and depends on the number of packages – that’s why it’s better to consolidate 10 packages rather than shipping them as 10 separate packages. On the other hand, the Customs in Saint-Petersburg in most cases releases clothes/shoes without any fees(but the procedure takes 3-4 weeks) so if the final destination is Saint-Petersburg usually we ship this type of merchandise directly to Russia.

    That’s how it works.

    Linda**

    I was going to take the package and all of the emails to the post office and make a complaint. This company goes by the name of SCM Logistics.

    Alex - January 28, 2015 Reply

    I, embarrassingly, admit that I completely fell for one of these schemes twice. The first time was with Independent Delivery Professionals, Inc.…they didn’t even “hire” me, so no packages from them.

    The second time was with BestPackage, LLC. Their website is http://www.bestpackage.net. BestPackage LLC offered $40 per package shipped and would pay you once a month, and that employees would receive from 30 to 60 packages per month. Once receiving a package, the employee has to check it, document it, inform the manager that they have received it, await the prepaid shipping labels (to which they were legitimately, or seemed to be, prepaid), then bring them to their local USPS to reship them. I was so desperate for work, so I, unfortunately, did not even conceive it to be a scam. At the time, I viewed it as a temp/odd, albeit legal, job till I could get a real job. I did the work for about month, unfortunately, reshipping a total of 21 packages. Then, a week before payday came around, the packages stopped, though contact didn’t. BestPackages stopped contacting me 2 days before payday, though my login credentials for the site still worked. When payday came around, I didn’t see a check, so I waited a week, and still no check. After a week, I decided to inquire them about my paycheck only to find a day later that my site login credentials didn’t work (which was their response)….

    The following day, I had found out that someone had their identity stolen and had $1000 of merchandise purchased from a Paypal account opened in their name over a month ago and was shipped to my address (to which turned out to be the first package I received). Because I kept detailed records, I was able to point this person in the right directions; where I sent the package (name and address), and about BestPackage.net. They were most grateful, they didn’t press charges against me. This incident led me to believe that all the packages I sent all contained stolen merchandise, riddling me with guilt.

    I found your site and this article the very same day a half a day later. Since I kept all the records (package dates, their IDs, contents (pictures), reshipping shipping labels, etc.), job info (FAQ, Description, Offer, Payment form, etc.), probably most, if not all, of the shipping receipts, and a few a the invoices, I placed all of which in a single box to which I labelled “BestPackage EVIDENCE B O X.” I backed up the email offer and conversation onto a CD (along with the records and job info) and placed in there as well. So, in case the Police or FBI come knocking, all the evidence for my case are all in one place.

    However, I am not sure what to do next. Fill this (http://ehome.uspis.gov/fcsexternal/default.aspx) out and/or this (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx) out? I do agree that staying quite is the worst thing I could do.

    Hello Eddy I just got some one like this off Craigslist 1/20/2015.. I haven’t did any shipping with them and truly I was on to them any way.. I check the phone number that was listed which started with a 785# told me that starting next monday I would start receiving packages with ipads, phones, etc and I could open and look at them, then they would send a Fedex Label then I take it to Fedex and drop off.. I would be paid $500.00 a week i asked how they said you choose I said Paypal.. See one thing I watch is how they write the english is not good, they all mostly require the same information, they asked for any valid I.D. I told them I don’t give my Drivers licence to any body that I am not sure about.. I gave them my address, and name all was said in an email.. My plans was when the package came I was going to call the police cause I know it is a scam..
    I have been a victim of a scam when I was laid of my job in 2014 at this time I knew nothing about these scam and was job hunting same as I am today I was going to a place to look employment got this text went home set up yahoo messenger and to make a long story short end up losing over a 1,000. Nothing could be done it was an online set up.. Now today I am very cautious I do scam adviser, BBB, reviews, etc on lots of companies.. The one I am talking about now didn’t even have a name just asking you want to do work at home and open the little box on craigslist and there was the phone number.

    Hi Eddy

    I am really so disappointed to be used by this company
    well my case has taken a different dimension. I received an email from one company Rush Shipping Services through career builder.ca offering me a job of Logistics Cordinator, since it was coming from a career website we felt it was real. I signed a contract on Dec 14 2014 with all the id verification done, and was offered to be paid 2650 CAD+ shipping bonuses with two week probational period. I had looked up the company on the internet everything seemed ok as i read on their website that they help customer buy products around the world and re-ship it. I received three packages in the same name in Dec and posted to the US to two different address in the US. well two weeks ago I received an email from them that I have passed the probation that they needed my account info for advance payment, which I did send to them. I became suspicious last week when I received an email requesting for my online account login details and security questions for verification purpose. I refused giving them. I rang the bank to inform them about it and a security alert has been placed on my account, I reported the case to the police, they advised me to receive my payment for the work I did and forget about the company.
    well on 19th January I received an email of a bank transfer of 2315 CAD from them as an advance payment but my concern is the money came from a different person name, the transaction was blocked from the bank asking the sender to contact the bank. I told them about it and this Morning a payment of 2200 CAD was transferred again with yet another person name, this time around this has been credited to my account. I received an email from them to deduct 215 CAD as my advance payment(I have worked for over a month) and send 1885 CAD to someone in France. now I do not want to send this money but I am confused as to what to do.

    I recently fell victim to this scam with a company called, “US Pack and Ship LLC”. Shame on me for not performing a simple search of “shipping agent scam” before I signed on with them. I hopefully caught it soon enough as no packages have arrived yet.
    Today I took ALL advice Eddy provided even though I did not provide the company with my social, credit card nor license numbers. They have my name and address, and that could have very well be all they needed.
    Avoid US Pack and Ship LLC (uspacknshipllc.com)!

      Hey Ray,

      I’m so happy you avoided this garbage. Fortunately NOT everyone is trying to scam people out here. There are plenty of folks like me trying to help people make some extra money legitimately. Unfortunately desperation, and the lure of fast large sums of money pull people in. Folks don’t seem to realize there isn’t just a magically fast way to make money at home. It all takes work and patience like it would offline. But there are many legitimate ways of making extra little money if folks are open to it. That’s the only good thing about when people run into this scam. They’re brought here and they learn there are other ways to make money and be safe.

      In any event, thanks for sharing Ray!

    I fell for a scam too, it was a company called Global Parcel Delivery LLC, I had shipped 5 packages thinking it was a legit business, then I found a few packages hadn’t arrived, I had called about them and found out they were fraudulent charges, was notified to call local law enforcement, turns out the local law enforcement were waiting to hear from me, I told them what had happened, and they said If I cooperated it could help out the case, I kept all shipping receipts, printed out my queue of undelivered packages, with tracking numbers, and made an official statement, the officer which knew me, stated that since he had known me and knew I had a clean background, I would probably not face jail time, then he said this case had turned to an international case when he found out that the packages were going to moscow. When I found out about the scam, I got sick, I thought I had done my research, but turned out it wasnt good enough. I just hope they find the scammers and bring justice to this incident.

    Hi Eddy,

    I fell for this scam as well. I believed the company was called Global Logistics. Signed a contract and gave all my personal information. I got a package the other day and I told the DHL man that I’m not taking it. It had my address but somebody else’s name on the box. The DHL guy I believe shipped it to the person that’s name was on the box. I got a visit from a kid that said he received 1200 dollars worth of stuff. I don’t know where the stuff was from, maybe gamestop. All he told me is that it had video electronics in it. I told the kid that I was scammed. He thought I was lying. I did across desperate but it was only because I knew I had been scammed and I came across your website so I knew what to do and I knew the situation. He told me that I’m the mastermind behind all of it. Why I was investing time into it. He told me to leave him alone and that he contacted the company, gamestop I believe. He contacted the return people for gamestop and that the gamestop security are looking into it. I could’ve done without the vulgar language he said lol. He was very upset with me. So what I did is I followed the steps you have above. Fortunately that was the only package I’ve received. So I didn’t send any packages out

    I wrote a few complaints on the ic3.gov website and the Postal Inspectors. Closed my checking account and put my credit on alert. I also kept the emails Global Logistics sent me. I kept The application and the email that I wrote to them telling them I know they’re a scam and not to contact me anymore. My uncle is a police officer and I asked for his advise. He told me unfortunately this happens all the time to people. I’m just upset with myself that I fell for it. Like you said above when your desperate you throw skepticism aside. So what he told me to do is file a complaint with my local police department. Which I did.

    I’m just concerned that gamestop or worse the authorities are going to ask the kid where he got the box and they’re going to trace it back to my address and since my address is on it I get the blame because they’re going to think I’m apart of it.
    Thanks for this website
    Take care

      Hey Jason,

      Sorry to hear you were a victim of this scam as well. But I think you took all the proper steps. I don’t imagine you should get into any issues given what you’ve done. It’s unfortunate that the other victims don’t believe a fellow victim. But I guess everyone is heightened after something like this. Either way keep us posted.

    Hi I had the same scam from the comments below. It was also with Exec Direct Aviation Services LTD. Some guy that I know doesn’t exist named Robert Hudson. Unfortunately I sent all my personal info to these scam artists. My family told me it was to good to be true. I was so desperate I sent all my info. Well I found this website and my family was right. It was to good to be true. I shut down all my banking and put an alert out on my credit. My checking account info and credit info is also worrying me. Yesterday I received a package that had my address but somebody else’s name. I told the UPS driver that the person on this box doesn’t live here. So I gave it back to him and very similar to the person below it was sent to the person that was named on the box. I had this women come to my house stating she had 1500 dollars worth of electronics from Gamestop as well. I told her it was a scam. Well she didn’t believe that I wasn’t in on the scam. She told me that she had reported it to Gamestop and they are looking into it. I’m very scared as well because it has my address on it. Im worried that Gamestop or the woman will tell the police about the situation. That Im at fault. Should I file a report to the police as soon as possible like the person below? Should I contact Gamestop and tell them the situation? I did also file a complaint to the ic3.gov. website. I will contact the consumer agency as well. I do have all the emails they sent me with the job application and offer. As well as the W4 form they sent me. They had me logged on onto this website/workingpanel. Well once I figured out it was a scam I emailed the scam artists and they shut me out of the website. So they knew I was on to them. I basically told them they are scam artists and not to send me any packages. Unfortunately they did on the 23rd. Im just praying that the lady who has the package doesn’t say that I’m the scam artist because Im not. Any advice would be great. Thank you for taking the time.

      Hey Cody,

      I’m sorry to hear you fell for this as well. You have the emails which will help. I would also contact all parties involved. You can even refer them to this page so they can see it’s a scam that has affected tons of other people. But definitely contact whoever else you think should know. It’s better to be proactive than reactive. You’re just a pawn in this situation. Between the emails you received, this site and you can refer people to the other sites listed here, anyone will be able to see you’re not part of this.

      Keep us posted.

      Cody - December 24, 2014 Reply

      Hey Eddy,

      I did everything that you stated above. Probably put in a couple complaints to the FBI website lol. Better be safe than sorry right. I also called and wrote a complaint to the United States Postal Service that you have listed above. For good measures I filed a complaint with my local police department. Told them the whole situation and got a reference number. So at least I know I talked to them. I tried to contact the person that has the package but unfortunately they didn’t want to talk to me. They think I’m behind everything. So they definitely didn’t listen to me. I did let the police know about that as well. All they told me was that they contacted GameStop. That Gamestop is investigating it. I’m hoping they send it back to the merchant. It’s a nightmare situation. Just wished I didn’t put myself in that situation. Thank you and take care.

    Hi I recently got scammed myself. The Driver delivered a package to me and i said the name isn’t anybody who lives in the house. So I denied it. Thanks to this website I didnt send any packages out. Well I think the driver sent it out to the person whos name is on the package. Now the person who has the package told me he contacted gamestop and they’re looking into it. I scared to death. He said it 900 dollars worth of stolen goods. That I’m the scammer. Should I make a police report? Its my address so I’m terrified it will come back to me.

      thanks for your help i turned them over to the FBI and sent all the info i had .I cant find anything on the internet bad about them but i know it is a scam. I did contact the companys that the product came from and they are sending the ups and fedx out to pickup the packages they were glad that called them. Get this then that person from the scam company emailed me and sent ups labels to send the items to amazon from my address . I just about lost it. I was not nice to that person . I hate scammers i have better things to do with my life than play there games.

    Hi I recently fell for one of these scams as well. It was by a company called Exec Direct Aviation Services LTD. It was sent by a man named Robert Hudson. I had signed the contract and sent all my personal info to this fraud company. Fortunately I found this website the day I sent it. I immediately froze my accounts and put a notice on my credit. I didn’t send any packages out thank goodness. I also emailed the person back stating that I’ve reported the company to the FBI. Well the other day a package came from UPS it was a PS4 and I didn’t sign for it. I gave it back to the UPS driver. I hope I did the correct thing. I’m just worried that these packages will keep coming. Thank you for this website.

    I got an email from a guy named Robert Hudson. It sounded very similar to the comments below. I should’ve been smarter but I fell for it. Fortunately after I sent all my personal info to this fraud I found this website. I closed my accounts and put my credit on alert. I emailed the crook and told him not to send me any packages that I will report him. They deleted me from their profile. They knew I was on to them. I had UPS driver deliver a PS4 and I didn’t sign for it. I Immediately made the UPS driver take it back. What should I do if they keep delivering packages? I have not sent any packages out thanks to this website. Thank you.

    Tara Harvey - December 17, 2014 Reply

    Greetings, dear applicant!

    First of all I would like to thank you for your interest in our company.
    My name is Mr. Mark Thomson, I am a Hiring Department specialist at Horizon Society Inc. Our website

    is http://www.societyhorizon.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:

    box is damaged;
    5. – You will be repackaging content. The box should be appropriate for international shipping;

    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.

    hello eddy, thank you for creating this website. I am a fresh victim and the scammers are Global Parcel Delivery LLC. I initially researched the company and couldn’t find reviews or any indication that it is a scam i wish there was a way we could alert people of any new scams by red flagging the company, i am personally going to report this company in the BBB website hopefully people will research the company there and be notified that it is fraud!!! because if someone did i would have known and never been part of it. I have shipped about 7 packages and stopped immediately i came across this website and contacted the fbi who basically directed me to ic3.gov. I have learnt my lesson – when a deal is too good think twice, i am a wise person now and i hope this individuals get caught. I do not know what happened to people here who were deep into it but i will sure post my experience. I am also looking at legitimate ways to make money online from your website. I will keep you updated with my progress on this case regardless of the outcome. below is the email they sent me :

      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.

      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.

      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.

    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
    To
    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.

      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.

    Dear Applicant,

    I’ve reviewed your resume and pleased to inform you that your skills completely meet our requirements for this position.

    TWO EASY STEPS TO START:
    1) Please see the “Job Description” file for more details about this position.
    2) Fill out “Application Form” and send it back to me.

    Note: Just save the file on your PC. Open it in Acrobat Reader. Print the form.
    Sign it, then scan the pages and send us using your email.

    PS: Please visit our website for additional information about our company and services: fast2box.com

    I believe it’s another one of these scams–I won’t be replying. I just wanted to put this e-mail out there so that if anyone searches fast2box.com to see if it is legit, they will come here and see that it is not.

    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.

    Below the company that was presented to me:

    Solaris Motor Freight Inc.
    1810 W Detroit St
    Broken Arrow, OK 74012
    U.S.A.

    Tel: 1 (866) 603-8014

    email address that was used: krystalbeck@solaris-trans.net

    Just be alert for yourself, these all seem to be Russian scammers.

      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….”

      Eddy Salomon - December 11, 2014 Reply

      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.

    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…

    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?

      I got the same invitation and didn’t do ENOUGH homework. I admit it seemed to good to be true (and it was), but i rationalized. Now I’m “stuck” with stolen merchandise and already forwarded 2 packages before I realized what was happening. I am in the process of filing a complaint at ic3.gov and I have already filed one with postal inspectors as directed above. Thanks, Eddy!

      I fell for the same one I sent one then they wanted to a business account transfer money. That’s when something didn’t fell right. And I came upon this site I got more packages coming but I did do ic3.gov. Thanks for letting me and others know. And sent the guy a message and saying the feds was looking me fraud to see what he says no reply yet.

      Sorry to hear you were a victim too Howard. But the good thing is you found this website and you’ll be able to find legitimate ways to make money now. So welcome to the site.

    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.

    Corrisa - October 24, 2014 Reply

    I never heard of this scam until recently. It seems like there’s red flags all over the place, but I guess a lot of people are desperate to make money from home and so they ignore the red flags.

    Nice in-depth article about this scam Eddy. Keep the great posts coming!

      Hey Corrisa,

      Yes it’s a common scam. And unfortunately a lot of people fall for it because it’s so cleverly disguised and desperation makes many folks suspend their skepticism. Fortunately this article has helped many people. Thanks for chiming in and the kind words.

    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?

    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.

      Hey Mike,

      I had the exact same people contact me. I signed a contract as well. I haven’t sent any packages which is good but the other day the UPS man brought a package with somebody’s name on it so I refused to take it. How did your experience end up?

      Hey,

      I wouldn’t know unless they actually explained what they’re expecting you to do. But the fact they provide any real details on what the job entails leads me to believe it’s either a home business or possible scam. But this is a guess.

    I’m freaking out officially because I filled out the paperwork and just recieved a package today. I didnt open it, but I am concerned is my identity gonna get stolen? what do I do now?

      D,

      Follow the advice listed in the article above. In terms of the identity theft stuff you should probably invest in some identity theft or credit monitoring services.

    Eddy, I’m freaking out. I’ve been in contact with a Lexie Redman from OTP Logistics. I was very cautious in the beginning, but I went ahead and signed an agreement and gave her our address after looking at their website. I DO NOT want to get in trouble with this! Is there any way to keep packages from getting shipped to our place?

      Eddy Salomon - September 11, 2014 Reply

      No need to freak out Linsey. Just follow the advice in the article above and you should be fine.
      You can ask the mail carrier to return the packages back to the company or just don’t accept them.

    Parcels Abroad GP, LP is an online mail management company with brick-and-mortar presence in Florida. Besides regular mail forwarding, we offer online mail management services to our international customers. Many American retailers do not offer the option of overseas delivery. We help our customers to get an American postal address for making purchases and then get their orders delivered anywhere in the world. We work with international businesses that buy and sell goods in the US and people who travel on a regular basis.

    We are always seeking to develop our services further through a number of strategies based on innovation.

We do this by utilizing the most up-to-date technological solutions and through efficient warehousing and human resources management approaches.

This also enables us to reduce our storage expenses, to be more competitive and keep our business green.

    Job details.

You can work from any location in the US except Alaska and Hawaii.

    Duties:

    • Stay available to receive parcels and correspondence at your address from 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday.

    Safe and Secure.

    You will be safe and secure while working for us. The parcels contain everyday items such as, electronics, clothing, auto parts or sporting goods. We handle only fully paid shipments and we never deal with any customers that cannot be verified as a legitimate business. This is all clarified during our phone interviews with the customers, after which they must send us two types of ID as well as a 1583 form signed by a notary.

    How to apply:
    Please complete the enclosed application, and return it to this email address along with your resume.

      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?

      @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.

    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.

    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

    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.

      what email address did the emails come from?

      Eddy Salomon - August 27, 2014 Reply

      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.

      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.

    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
