Be careful job seekers, scammers are recruiting mules by email for yet another possible reshipping/package forwarding scam or perhaps even a money mule check scam! This time it’s for a company called Royal Star LTD supposedly located at 1990 North California Blvd, Suite 650 Walnut Creek, California 94596. Phone #: (925) 478-4458.

The Recruiting Emails
The initial recruiting email is coming from 3 different email addresses using different names, but there could possibly be more. The email content however, is basically the same except for the first paragraph. I have included all 3 with the reply-to email addresses.

The third email says the same as the 2 emails above but with slightly different wording.
Notice all the spelling and grammar errors. That’s usually always a sign that English is not the senders primary language.

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).
If you have fell victim to a money mule employment scam, you 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.
Have you received a suspicious email offering you a “job” with Royal Star LTD or other work at home “Manager” or “Logistics Coordinator” job that you never applied for? Feel free to copy and paste the email in the comments so we can help alert and prevent others from becoming victims.
yes i have been scamed by this royal star company and really dont know what to do about it…i guess i’ll never get paid….
Unfortunately you’re right. You probably won’t get paid and even if you do (providing the check isn’t fake), you could be putting yourself in a position to be prosecuted and you definitely don’t want that to happen!
You need to cease all communication with the scammers immediately and file a complaint at ic3.gov and also with the US Postal Inspector ASAP at: http://ehome.uspis.gov/fcsexternal/default.aspx
