    I’m so glad I found this article. Too bad I found it too late. I received the exact same emails. They seemed very legitimate, and so did the company website (, so I didn’t even think to question it. I gave them my ID and SSN in order to be employed, and gave them banking information so that I could receive payment (which I never did). After the one month probation period, I filled out the W-4 and I-9 forms for employment. And all of the sudden the website that I worked through ( goes down, and I can’t get in contact with anyone. I called and emailed my supervisor, payroll, and the HR department. No response. After digging online trying to figure out why I can’t get in touch with these guys, I stumbled upon this article. I wasted a month working for these scammers, and now I have to report fraud and close my checking account. It is frightening how legitimate this company appeared to be. I only wish I discovered this article sooner, and I hope no one else will fall for this fraud.
    Also, ever since I have been badgering them with phone calls and emails, they removed their contact information from their main website. If you try calling that number now (800-413-9520) it will go straight to a dial tone, when just last week it was working.

      I’m so sorry, I wish you could have found us sooner also but thank you for sharing your experience. Hopefully your experience will help prevent others from becoming victims to these scammers in the future. What you described is the typical pattern all these reshipping scams follow.

    I also heard from this company as well and gave my banking information for my probationary period pay. I spoke with a Jennifer Dobbs who is a supervisor there. We last spoke on 10-6-17 when she said that she’ll be sending my training report to HR and Payroll but since that time, I haven’t heard back at all. I told my mom about it and she did some digging around and I did some digging around as well and that’s how I found out about their fakery from this site. I had no idea about them being this way at all. So, now, I’m going to take preventative measures and file a complaint with the post office and have my checking account closed and have a fraud alert going.

  3. I just received a carbon of the previous offers “Nietos & Associates.” In my due diligence, I discovered this website. The absence of a verifiable website, the misspelled words and verbage found at the linked website included with the offer were “red flags” for me as well.

    That was the note I got unsolicited. I get a lot of this sort of thing mostly from insurance companies wanting me to join them, but that is not my thing. Here is the reply to my acceptance:

      I got the same exact email but they changed the name of the company to Main Mailer that is supposed to be affiliated with Emcon. I never heard of them so I tried doing some research. I came across both websites for Emcon and Mainmailer and it looked legit. I actually spoke with them about an hour ago for an “interview” and immediately got suspicious. What they claim I would be doing didn’t sound right. They told me I would be receiving packages at my house, making sure everything was in order, re-package the order using a different shipping label and then I would take it to the post office and re ship it. There were too many red flags while talking to the guy. I searched to see if they had been reported and I came across this site. He told me I should be receiving an email within 2-3 business days to know if I got the job or not. I’m going to go ahead and assume I got the job LOL! I’m almost tempted to play along and scam the scammer but I’ll definitely be reporting them. I’m glad I didn’t give them any of my information.

      I received an email identical to your original one today. Of course, it had my information substituted for yours. I started going through the website and picked through the information and was actually fairly impressed with what I saw, but I have done some research into situations like this in the past and the description of the position, including the need to receive and then we ship packages from my home address, made me realize that something sounded wrong. My initial attempts to research didn’t actually find much information, and I needed to add the word scam to the listing in order to be able to find anything helpful. Once I saw this, I knew that I was right in ignoring the listing and not providing any of my information. It was pretty unfortunate, given that I am currently on the job market, and have been for quite some time. Needless to say, I would have definitely appreciated that position.
