Beware Of Schneider Safe Escrow Services Fraud Employment Offers!
4 new identical websites was just registered on March 24th for 1 year supposedly to someone named Renee B. Cruz
under the Organization name Pomeroy’s, using the address 4049 Heliport Loop, Chandler, YD (??) with the zip code 47610 (which is Evansville Indiana) using a throwaway email address ReneeBCruz@inbound.plus!
The 4 websites are schneidersafe.com, schneidersafety.com, schneiderescrow.com and schneiderdefense.com and the copyright info at the bottom of the websites say 2005-2016 which doesn’t quite fly with a website that was just registered a week ago. Below is a screenshot of the main page (the sites are all identical):
The business address given on these sites is 750 Shipyard Drive, Wilmington, DE 19801 (which is actually called “Red Brick Building”) and Phone # +1 (855) 204-5282 . According to Google:
“Area code 855 is a non-geographic area code, meaning that it is not associated with any particular city, state, province, or country. Area code 855 is a toll free number, that recently joined the list of 800, 888, 877, 866, and 844 toll-free numbers. Possibly Cambodia.”
A tenant search for this address shows there is NO business going by the name Schneider Safe or Schneider..Anything located at that address!
The “Employment” Opportunities!
What a coincidence that the schneidersafe.com, schneidersafety.com, schneiderescrow.com and schneiderdefense.com websites are exact copies of several other websites that was registered back in Dec 2015 for one year and registered under different suspicious names, addresses and disposable emails as well: weberescrow.com, webersafe.com, weberdefence.com, beckerdefence.com, beckersafe.com, beckerescrow.com,
webertrusted.com and beckerdeal.com (just to name a few) and they all used the SAME job offers as well as the same so-called employees names and pictures on those websites as well!
The job offers listed are :
- Box packer with a salary of $2500 – $3000 per month, depending on your location
- Microsoft Dynamics Axapta Developer. Salary: $8000-$14000 per month and..
- Administrative Assistant Salary: $4500 – $8000 per month, depending on your location, skills and experience.
The salaries and job descriptions are suspicious enough…(NOTE: “depending on your location”) but here is where the HUGE RED FLAG waves because it screams scam! The website has a 4 step “employment process”..After you supposedly ’email’ your resume to them then…
- Step 1- The candidate’s resume is reviewed by our Hiring Department. An official PDF document with the job description is sent to the successful candidate. A candidate must follow a link in the job description document to register for the interview.
- Step 2- After registering for the interview, you’ll get a personal candidate’s account. After that you have to download the agreement template, read it, and wait for your manager’s call.
- Step 3- After the successful interview you’ll be able to download the contract in your personal account
- Step 4- After signing the contract you will be able to begin your work (or on-the-job training) within 48 hours. Your manager will contact you and provide with the instructions. Welcome to our company 🙂
Since these Schneider Safe websites seems to emphasize on international “transactions” with customers and clients along with the “too good to be true” high salaries and the 4 step hiring process that is almost identical to the process of all the previous work from home money mule job scams we have warned our readers about, there is no doubt in my mind that Schneider Safe operating at schneidersafe.com, schneidersafety.com, schneiderescrow.com and schneiderdefense.com are all fraudulent business websites disguised as a so-called “escrow service” company created specifically to attract desperate job seekers in order to lure them into a money mule employment scam.
They may be sending out phishing emails that may appear to come from an employment agency to generate interest and responses and then follow up with the actual job offer.
The best way to avoid becoming a victim of a job scam is to be informed and educate yourself on how to spot a scam. Don’t just assume a job offer is legitimate just because they have a nice professional looking website and you’ve talked to a real person on the phone. These scammers have been doing this a long time and are very good at what they do!
What To Do If You Are A Victim
If you have fell victim to an employment scam like this, you 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 then file a complaint with the FBI’s internet crime center at http://www.ic3.gov/
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 credit 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, just your 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.
