May 22, 2013
I was laid off from work last October. Since then besides being on unemployment I have been vigorously looking for a job. On April 19 I noticed a job with Ship-Express Inc for a shipping coordinator for which I applied to get some, part-time income. The website which I have enclosed copies of seemed legitimate and the items I was shipping were allowed legally to be shipped to these countries. I applied for the position on April 19 and spoke with John Watson from the company. On April 22 they told me they were verifying my information so I could begin my probationary period in approximately 2 days. On April 30 they notified me that the first parcel was on its way to me for me to reship. When the items arrived I removed all the excess packaging, re-insulated them, and repacked them into flat rate express boxes to be shipped within 24 hours. During my time with them I sent five shipments (two shipments with one item per box & three shipments with two items per box) to the address that they provided me. They paid me for the expense of shipping and were going to pay me $25 per shipment for the labor of repacking, filling out appropriate documents, sending in the post office, and forwarding receipts and return.
On May 11 I e-mailed them because of a Visa bill arriving at my home address to a name used on their packing slips and I asked them to stop this from happening. They assured me they would take care of this and it was an accident. On May 14 I e-mailed them again because of more bills arriving at my home address with the same name they used in their packing slips. On May 15 they let me know that this was an accident and it would be corrected. During my time with this company my instructions were that I was to log onto their site every day to check in. On Monday, May 20 the site would not accept my password and I notified them by e-mail and never received a reply . On May 21 I was called by a person named Lauren from the Dell computer company who asked me about a shipment that I had received and asked me to return it. I told her about the company I was working for that forwarded shipments. Lauren told me that this was fraud and then I was scammed on the Internet. Lauren then wanted more information and I needed to verify her identity before I felt comfortable to release the information and asked to call her back at Dell. I did call back and verified that Lauren does work for Dell. Dell left the following claim number which was 20130517-APP-15512. I have copies of all communication with this company:
- Copies of e-mail correspondence with this company
- Copies of receipts and documents for all the shipments done for this company
- Copies of the website of this company
- Copies of some of the packing slips that came with the products
- Copies of the credit card mail sent to me
- Copies of the PayPal receipts of the money forwarded to me for postage
So far I lost $250.00 from this site. Could be more. time will tell. They will not respond to my emails. My password no longer works to access. Ship-expressinc.com website remains open to prey upon more innocent victims. They are advertising for more shipping coordinators. Careful you could lose a lot of money. I have been told they are also involved in credit card & identity theft
Looks like they repurposed the Ship-Express Inc company name and changed it to SHIPPING EXPRESS CORP.

Subject: Re: Job opportunity for (name)
From: Steve McMillan <email@example.com>
Greetings, dear applicant!
First of all we would like to thank you for your attention to our company.
My name is Mr. Steve McMillan, I am a Hiring Department specialist at PACKAGE LOGISTICS INC. Our website is www.pckglogistics.com
The primary line of our company’s activity is correspondence and distribution for customers all over the world wanting to trade on the Internet.
Why our business exists:
We offer our services to residents of different countries who want to buy and sell at Internet stores servicing the United States, European Union and Canada, but find it difficult because of shipping restrictions and complicated transactions.
As a result, thousands of people cannot easily access the huge market with high quality products at low prices, that America and the European countries have created.
Our company’s service makes buying and selling easy and possible with street addresses that can be legally used for shipping purposes.
Much like you have a friend or relative in United States or European Union, our Product Forwarding Contractors residing in these countries inspect and repackage the contents, fix the boxes and forward the packages of merchandise bought or sold on the Internet to customers in final destination countries. Also we provide guarantees and insurance service.
That is why we contract with people like you for parcel and mail forwarding. Also, we will need smart, responsible people who can be trained for management positions.
Products usually shipped through our service:
– Luxury items such as watches and jewelry
– Sport equipment
– Small electronics such as laptops, cameras, cell phones, tablets, GPS, PC components, etc.
– Clothing, shoes, handbags etc.
– Small auto parts
IMPORTANT: We never offer to ship illegal or restricted for export or import materials and technologies.
All parcels are compact enough to be processed within the room of a regular-sized house.
Each address you will ship packages to – is our sorting facility. The packages are being shipped to our customers, but you don’t see their names and addresses on shipping labels. The package is being inspected and re-shipped further after it arrives at our facility.
We have several types of customers.
1. – Some of them are residents of different countries – they buy products online for themselves and use our service to.
2. – some of them are residents of United States, but they live outside of the US and use our service to receive their personal correspondence, financial correspondence like bills or invoices and buy products online.
3. – Some of our customers are sellers, who trade through our system. Usually they live in US, Canada and European Union and sell goods to their clients in different countries.
Your primary responsibilities as a Product Forwarding Contractor will be:
1. – You will be receiving mail and packages from our company and its clients at your physical residential address;
2. – You will be sending reports to an assigned, personal manager, who will contact you after we finish with hiring process;
3. – You will remove all labels and stickers from outside of the box(It confuses postal workers very often);
4. – You will be inspecting the contents of parcels if it will be requested by your manager or the box is damaged;
5. – You will be repackaging content. The box should be appropriate for international shipping;
6. – You will be fixing the damaged boxes. The contents should get to the customer safe and sound.
7. – You will be re-labeling parcels received at your address by attentively following instructions which your manager will send by email.
8. – Then you will be completing forms and paperwork as instructed — one for each parcel to be forwarded. Never use the same shipping label to send more than one package.
9. – And finally you will be forwarding parcels according to instructions sent by your manager. (You will receive prepaid shipping labels so you are not responsible for any cost of shipping.)
10. – After that you will only need to send small “shipping report” to your manager, which means, that you finished the task successfully.
Important note: There are no start-up fees, investment or other costs related to this position.
Salary and bonuses:
-Your base monthly salary is $2500.00;

After you finish the first month – one of our accounting department representatives will contact you to discuss the matter of health insurance, taxes and vacation time frame.

Along with the application (shown below) attached to the email:
They’ve gone to great lengths to make this reshipping scam look legitimate but of course it’s not. You’ll be reshipping merchandise overseas to the scammers that was more than likely purchased with stolen credit cards which is mail fraud and any compensation you receive if any at all will more than likely be a fake counterfeit check or stolen funds.
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 mistakenly provided scammers any of your personal details such as your drivers license, social security number, 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!
