Suspected Re-Shipping Assistant Manager Job Scam At ShipLikeABoss.com
Job seekers beware of yet another suspected reshipping/package forwarding job scam at shiplikeaboss.com and shiplikeabosspnl.com.
Both domains, shiplikeaboss.com and shiplikeabosspnl.com was just registered on 11/2/2016 for one year only by someone going by the name Richard Edwards, 150 N Michigan Ave Chicago, Illinois, email address: email@example.com (which is an invalid-undeliverable email address in violation of iCann terms of service for registering a domain!)
Shiplikeaboss.com, is showing the website as still “Under Construction” whereas Shiplikeabosspnl.com is using a website which is the exact same log in page for “employees” used in many previous job scams we have alerted
our readers about over the last several months.
Shiplikeaboss.com was registered solely to set up various email accounts in order to contact and recruit jobseekers and appear as a legitimate business such as firstname.lastname@example.org. These scammers no longer take the time to create a legitimate looking business website as they have in the past since their only goal is to recruit as many mules as possible to reship stolen merchandise or cash fake checks and send them the money as quickly as possible. Then they abandon that website and go create another scam registering a new domain using different credentials.
The Recruiting Emails
Someone going by the name Holly Styles who claims to be the Shipping Department Manager may be contacting job seekers with resumes posted on CareerBuilder or similar job sites with a lucrative work at home job offer as an Assistant Manager. These emails may be coming from email@example.com or possibly firstname.lastname@example.org.
The business address they may be using is 6323 N Avondale Ave , Chicago, IL 60631 Phone (773) 683-3487.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true..trust your instincts because these offers always are! Don’t be a victim!
Keep in mind that if you accept any work from home job offer that requires you to accept packages/parcels at your home to relabel and reship elsewhere, that you may be accepting and re-shipping items to criminals that was purchased with stolen credit card information and you will not be paid a dime and if you do get paid the check will probably be fake. What’s worse is you could be prosecuted for receiving stolen goods and/or mail fraud since the stolen items are being sent to your home!
The USPS calls this Re-shipping Fraud! You can visit the USPIS website here for more details.
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 provided any personal details such as birthdate or Social Security number to the scammers, you need to contact the 3 credit bureaus- TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and place a fraud alert on your report. They can steal your identity and may try and obtain credit in your name. This will alert you for at least 90 days about any suspicious activity.
In the hands of a thief your personal information 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.
