Is The Logistics Manager Job Offer At Emcon-Mainmailer.com Legitimate?
If you have received a job offer email claiming to be from someone representing a company called Emcon from mainmailer.com for a Logistics Manager position, be VERY cautious!
A few weeks ago we warned our readers about a re-shipping/package forwarding scam at sendmeabox.com. They were using the stolen business name of V L Martin Enterprises as well as a fake business address in San Bernardino California and has been publicly slandering their victims as well as anyone that exposes their scam.
It appears we have a carbon copy of the website sendmeabox.com operating at mainmailer.com including the job application page shown below and found at http://mainmailer.com/apply/form?id=id01-smbweb-170931380-a1-3.
Below is a PDF copy of the Logistics Manager “JOB DESCRIPTION” found on mainmailer.com.
Just like sendmeabox.com, where the domain was deleted and re-registered by someone different a year or 2 later, the domain mainmailer.com was originally registered in 2014 by someone by the name Michael Saxon in ST Cloud Minnesota but was deleted in 2016 and then registered as “new” by someone by the name Garland Nelson and moved to a host in Germany on 2017-07-19.
Mainmailer.com also wants people to believe they have been in business since 2009 just like V L Martin Enterprises did and just like VLME they have also gone to great lengths online to make themselves appear as though they have been.
For example, posting backdated “articles” on various blog sites backdated as 2015-2016. We found one “blog” at face2face.ws, a domain which by the way was just registered in June 2017 (as well as others), that has posts about both sendmeabox.com and mainmailer.com which is nothing more than a bunch of copy and paste gibberish posted only to make it appear on the surface that these businesses has been around a long time specifically for the purpose of tricking and luring job seekers into their scheme. But when you try to investigate them further the information just doesn’t add up!
UNVERIFIED BUSINESS ADDRESS
Mainmailer.com claims on their website that their business address is 732 Carnegie Dr Ste 125 San Bernardino, CA 92408. We cannot find any business with the name Emcon at that address anywhere except for websites they can actually control what information appears like business directories. In fact Google shows that until recently that address belonged to a Doctor’s office INCLUDING the suite number: 125. Search for the company name Emcon and you won’t find a company with that name at that address! That will always be the first red flag!
Ask yourself this..if “Emcon is the premier leader in the global shipping and logistics solutions industries” as it states on the mainmailer.com website and they have been in business since 2009 wouldn’t you easily be able find that information in a company name search on google? Of course you would however, that’s not the case!
There is only 2 “active” corporations registered by the name Emcon in the state of California and neither company is anywhere near that address NOR has anything to to do with the Logistics or Global Shipping industry! Another red flag. There is no LLC registered in California by that name either!
So be careful and never provide any personal information to anyone claiming to be representing a company that you cannot verify it’s legitimacy without complete certainty! Scammers have become pros at researching the companies they target and they already know the information that’s available to the public beforehand and will use that info to their advantage. That’s how they can easily fool their victims into believing they are a legitimate business.
Is ThePostalDelivery.Com & Parceller.Com Operated By The Same People?
We already reported Sendmeabox.com and now Mainmailer.com both supposedly operating from unverified locations in the San Bernardino California area using the same website template, the same application process and registering deleted domains under new names and addresses a year after they were deleted. But wait..there’s more!
We also discovered yet 2 other websites that were also registered under the same circumstances and also located in the San Bernardino California area and both offering a work from home Logistics Manager position.
One is currently online operating under the name Nietos and Associates at thepostaldelivery.com using the same website template and application process as Sendmeabox.com and Mainmailer.com. Of course the company location cannot be verified and their “registered at” address of : 816 Colton Ave, Colton, CA 92324 just happens to be a T-Mobile store. (go figure) and their “headquarters” at 2201 E. Cooley Dr. Suite #107, Colton, CA 92324 is a warehouse that is vacant and currently “for sale”!
The other was operating under the name Direct Access, Inc. and their website, which was a deleted website in 2016 just like those above and registered as new on 2017-05-23, was parceller.com which was shut down and deleted on 8/22/2017! Their business address was 327 Grant St. Redlands, California 92373 which is a private residence located..you guessed it, in San Bernardino County! Parceller.com was shut down because they were reported as a verified scam by a victim in Pasco County Florida and the victim of the stolen credit card info the merchandise was purchased on! Watch this news report
specifically about parceller.com on July 22: http://wspa.com/2017/07/22/scam-alert-criminals-using-career-websites-to-steal-identities/
All 4 domains were re-registered at the same registrar Paknic within the timeframe of a month or two of each other and all pointing to the same nameservers: zoneedit.com located in Germany.
What was revealed in that report is exactly what we have been warning our readers about with these re-shipping scams and there is no doubt in my mind that all 4 of these “companies” were engineered and operated by the same group of people!
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 ss # 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, 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.
