Here’s another suspected reshipping/package forwarding scam that appears to have been operating at genius4all.com using the name Genius Parcel Zoom Ltd. Inc. since around Dec 2013. Below is a screenshot of the “Career Opportunity” page:
The Recruiting Email
The first clue is the emails they are sending do not appear to be formatted as you would normally expect a legit professional recruiter to compose. There is no greeting and no signature or contact name and no paragraph breaks. Below is a copy of the email they are currently sending:

Genius Parcel Zoom Ltd. Inc.
A google search for Genius Parcel Zoom is how I found the web address they are using- genius4all.com. They are using cloud hosting with domain privacy to hide their IP address and registrant info, which is probably why they have been able to operate so long without being reported for fraud and shut down.
Keep in mind that if you accept any work from home job offer that requires you to accept packages/parcels at your home to relabel and reship elsewhere, that you may be accepting and re-shipping items to criminals they purchased with stolen credit card information and you may not be paid a dime and if you do get paid the check may be bogus. What’s worse is you could be prosecuted for receiving stolen goods since the stolen items are being sent to your home!
What to do if You Are A Victim
REPORT MAIL 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).
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 scammers any of your personal details such as your drivers license, social security number, birthdate, credit card or banking information, you need to contact the 3 credit bureaus- TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and place a fraud alert on your report. I also recommend you also get some sort of identity protection such as the services offered through companies like LifeLock-Visit Their Website Here!
