ParcelOne.org Reshipping Forwarding Scam
Parcelone.org was just registered 2015-07-23 for one year only and is hosted on an IP address located in Russia, although the domain is registered to someone by the name of Allen Miller with the address 271 MADISON AVENUE, NEW YORK, NY 10016 which is also the business address listed on the Parcelone.org website. The phone number shown on the website, +1 347 305-5116 does NOT match the phone number on the domain registration which is +01.7013913397.
Here’s a screenshot of the homepage:

Fake/Stolen Team Member Photos
Scam websites like this try to make the website and the “business” look legitimate by featuring photos of their so-called top management team and ParcelOne.org is no different. Below is a screenshot of their “Top Team” photos:
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 mistakenly provided scammers any of your personal details such as your drivers license, social security number, credit card or banking information, I recommend you also get some sort of identity protection such as the services offered through companies like LifeLock-Visit Their Website Here!
