ECM-Forwarding.com Logistics Manager Job Scam
Another Package Forwarding/Reshipping job scam is making it’s rounds to job seekers with resumes posted on Career Builder. This time they are recruiting for a “Logistics Manager” for a company called ECM Forwarding and the scammers website that was just registered on Jan 20 for one year is located at Ecm-Forwarding.com. Below is a screenshot of their “Career” page on the website:
The business address and phone # on the website is 111 N Charles St Suite 7013, Baltimore, MD 21201, United States TEL: (443) 203-5769, although we cannot find a business listing for ECM Forwarding at that address or any address for that matter. There is a legitimate trucking company called ECM Transport in Glen Burnie, MD just south of Baltimore which could possibly be the company the scammers want their potential “employees” to think they are a part of. Below is a screenshot of the address listed on ECM-Forwarding.com. 111 is the doorway in the middle.

The USPS calls this Re-shipping Fraud! Here’s the warning from the USPS website:
Criminals operating primarily from Eastern European countries and Nigeria have been conducting widespread, international schemes involving bogus job offers, fraudulent credit card orders, and the reshipping of illegally obtained products.
The scam begins when criminals buy high-dollar merchandise — such as computers, cameras, and other electronics — via the Internet using stolen credit cards. They have the merchandise shipped to addresses in the United States of paid “reshippers” (who may be unaware they are handling stolen goods). The reshippers repackage the merchandise and mail it to locations in Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Romania, and Germany. Victimized businesses include such well-known companies as Amazon, Gateway, and eBay, and other Internet auction sites.
You can visit the USPIS website here for more details.
REPORT MAIL FRAUD!
If you believe you’re a victim of a re-shipping scam, file a complaint with Postal Inspectors online or call Postal Inspectors at 1-877-876-2455 (option 4, Mail Fraud).
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 have provided any personal information to these scammers, 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.
Criminals may offer to pay you for a work-at-home job with a postal money order or check, tell you to keep your earned portion, and request you wire the remaining amount elsewhere.
Postal Inspectors warn: Make sure the money order or check is genuine before you deposit it. If your bank identifies a money order or check as counterfeit, you may be liable for the full face amount of the counterfeit you deposited in the bank. Remember any unsolicited email with a “job”offer that sounds too good to be true…it most always is! Don’t allow yourself to fall victim to these criminals! A legitimate business will never ask for your personal information such as your social security number, bank account info or credit card numbers via an email, nor will they “hire” employees without a background check or a face to face interview.
To verify if a postal money order is authentic, call the Money Order Verification System at 1-866-459-7822.
