Another Logistics Agent Reshipping Job Scam – Premium Send
A reader just contacted us stating they received a job offer as a Logistics Agent for a company called Premium Send LLC from someone going by the name Lisa Robertson. The reader didn’t provide a copy of the email received, however they did provide the website address which is premiumsend.com. Below is a screenshot of the website:
What We Learned About Premiumsend.com
Premiumsend.com was just registered 11/14/2017 for 1 year only by someone by the name Louise Carroll in Salem, Oregon and is hosted in Germany. The website does not have a SSL certificate and is NOT secure yet asks for personal information from customers and “employees” who would create an account! The business address listed on the website is 4016 N Dupont Hwy, New Castle, DE 19720, USA which according to google is actually the address listed for a self-storage rental facility. We were unable to locate any business by the name “Premium Send” associated with that address.
Our reader also states the phone number (302) 956-1247 listed on the website is always busy.
The “about us” at the bottom of the page claims the business was founded in 2004 and that they launched their website in 2005 and on their About Us page they claim that:
Premium Send is a famous company founded more than 10 years ago in a small warehouse and aimed at becoming a market leader in the mail and package forwarding business…
But if this was true, there would surely be some sort of a business listing in google, however there is no history of any online presence or “buzz” such as reviews or social media accounts. So it appears Premium Send is not as “Famous” as they would like us to believe!
Also our reader stated that Lisa Robertson represented the company as Premium send LLC, which would indicates they are a registered entity with the state, but our search on the Delaware.gov website for registered corporations found NO record for Premium Send!
The domain premiumsend.com has a long history dating back to 2013 of being registered and deleted 3 times and transferred to different hosting accounts 9 times! This is usually a clear indication that the domain has possibly been registered for fraudulent purposes in the past which is why it has repeatedly been shut down, moved and shut down again and again! See below:
So job-seekers beware if you happen to receive a recruiting email offering you a “job” as a Logistics Agent for Premium Send! It’s just one of MANY reshipping/pkg forwarding scams that pop up everyday! Don’t become a victim!
What To Do If You Are A Victim
You can visit the USPIS website here for more details about re-shipping fraud.
If you believe you’re a victim of a re-shipping/forwarding scam, file a complaint with Postal Inspectors online or call Postal Inspectors at 1-877-876-2455 (option 4, Mail Fraud).
You will need to contact your bank immediately and close your account IF you have provided your account information to the scammers. Next file a police report with your local authorities and also report the scam at http://ic3.gov which is the official site working in conjunction with the FBI to help stop internet crime.
If you provided your personal information like your social security #, birthdate etc , you need to contact the 3 credit bureaus- TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and place a fraud alert on your report. These criminals can steal your identity and may try and obtain credit in your name. Doing this will alert you for at least 90 days about any suspicious activity.
In the hands of a thief, your driver’s license, name, address, Social Security number or date of birth, can be used over and over months- even years down the road to:
Open new lines of credit
Seek medical attention
Drain savings and retirement accounts
Provide an alias when arrested
Get a job or file false tax returns
Get Payday Loans in your name
Obtain service agreements for cellular service or utilities
Obtain Government Documents such as a drivers license or passport
That’s why I highly recommend you get some sort of ongoing identity theft protection such as the services offered through companies like LifeLock-Visit Their Website Here or Identity Force-visit their website here! LifeLock and Identity Force are both reputable companies that monitors your accounts and alerts and protects you from identity theft.
