Job scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

  • they want you to collect and forward money in any way (a "money mule" job). You'll wind up engaged in money laundering, personally defrauded via expertly forged cheques, money orders, etc, or defrauding someone else who pays for goods that never arrive.
  • they want you to receive packages and reship them somewhere else. The goods will have been obtained fraudulently, and they're just using you to make the shipping address appear local. You will be aiding fraud.
  • they want up-front payment (either to them or someone else) of any sort for anything before you can get the job. This is advance fee fraud: there is no job -- it's just a big con to extract money from you.
  • they want you to buy any kind of "membership" or "kit" in order to start. Forget it -- it's not a real job at all: they're trying to sell you something, and they're probably making a bunch of other false claims about it if they're pitching it as a "job".
  • it's a job offer, and it's spam. There are LOTS of these scams about, as you can see.

Preston Logistics

This job is a reshipping scam. Usually this means that the scammers purchase a whole bunch of stuff on stolen credit cards, have it shipped to the "employee", and have the employee reship it overseas to them. If anyone has been suckered into doing this, please tell us (anonymously) where you were asked to ship it, because it's interesting to know where the crooks are. I'm not sure whether to guess West Africa or the Former Soviet Union in this case, but I'll wager on the latter.

Every now and then the scammers post comments pretending to be their own best customers. "Preston-logistics.com" was only registered this month. Anyone who claims to have been working for them a whole year needs to explain this anomaly, otherwise it's safer to assume they're a lying scammer.

I have a separate blog entry for the Amato Logistics scam (which is quite similar to this, of course).

Man, this is a hot scam. They just make pretty websites and, yeah, they do appear credible.

I discovered this one wasn't after reading their BS accolade concerning Great Clips awarding them for their innovation. I googled the name listed as the CEO (Rhoda Olson, I believe) and saw K2 Logistics claimed the same.

Is this the new 419'r?

Ever since posting on career builder I get more and more scams like this, check out my letter.

"My name is Carol Belmonte. I am the manager of the Logistic Solutions Co, which can be found at www.logistic-solutions.us . Recently I've examined your resume on careerbuilder.com. At the moment we need an agent in your state and your resume looks attractive. You have several qualifications and based on your job history you look trustworthy enough for this position. I’d like to proceed to an online interview, and send you a contract to read over and sign. Once returned to me, we can proceed to the interview process.



To provide some information about the position, I’d like to start off with the logistics of the way our business works. Our company participates in transactions with Ebay, Online stores (Buy.com,Amazon.com etc) and it is a common matter that a buyer and a seller are in different parts of the world and it does not meet with our clients requirements to use international wires, paypal, or other such methods of payment, as they are in process from one week up to one month. That is why we would like to hire some employees that can deal with the money transfers between the buyer and the seller.



The job description is as follows:

Your responsibilities will be:

- Check your e-mail two times a day to verify incoming transactions. This must be done, and you must send us a confirmation e-mail at least twice a day to verify when you checked your mail.
- Once a week, visit your bank to receive money transfers, and resend it to our clients via another transfer system. We prefer you use Western Union.



Your compensation will be:
1. You will receive 5% from each transaction, up to a limit of $1700 per your probationary month.
After your probationary month your salary will be $2500-$3000 depending on the jobs you receive.



2. You can receive 7% from each transaction but it is necessary for you to register an independent company(Limited Liability Company) and to open a corporate account. You can make up to 5000 but the introductory fees are 300 in your state to form a LLC.

Your commissions, which are 5-7% of every transaction and depend on the quantity of completed transactions and the speed of your work. Normally the amounts that we process vary from $5,000 to $35,000, but can go higher on special occasions. For your convenience, there will be no paycheck. Just leave the commission in your bank account directly after each transfer.



Taxation:
According to US laws you are not required to pay taxes on bank transactions. If you wish to file a 1099 for any work given to your LLC, it will be your responsibility.

You'll have to post more information than just a name -- but assume that "anything logistics" is a scam if they're offering some kind of Internet-based work-from-home job (unless you have excellent evidence to the contrary).

I received an email very similar to those posted from a Carlos Represas. The email was well written and the website provided as well as attached job application appeared legitimate. I filled out the application and sent it back with my resume. The responding email was horribly written and raised serious red flags for me. He said that you do not need to check the packages (i.e. open them) but merely need to examine the exterior for irreparable damage and send it on its way to the next destination. THIS MAKES NO SENSE. Why would anyone pay people to look at the outside of a box and ship it somewhere else? What a crock. Don't waste your time filling out the application like I did. I am continuously saddened by the overwhelming amount of scam jobs I am contacted for.

I've been scammed :-( I worked for a company named Vesanto-Logistics and the same thing, I shipped packages for them but when it came time to pay me the rep was mia. WAS NEVER PAID.

E-mail: career@vesanto-logistic.com
www.vesanto-logistic.com. I had answered a job posting on Career Builder. They even called to explain the job. All documents they sent look truly legal, except when they send you the last one asking for all types of account information so their clients will know where to deposit the money. And, yes, funds needed to be sent via Western Union within 24 hours. It all looked good but I was not comfortable with it and then did some searching and found all the information posted here. Thank you for posting and I have sent them a note to take me off their list.

Hi Mike!

I'm not sure what tipped him off. Maybe it was the fact that the registration of logone-logistics.com is less than a year old, and lists some Russian guy using a hotmail address as the owner. So... Luxembourg-based business, or Russian scammer? You decide.

Hi. Has any1 heard about globox logistics llc? I got an email from them a month ago. They look legit. Please fill me up if any1 knows anything abt them

Spotter said...

A name like "Globox Logistics" isn't enough to go on. After all, even if there is a legitimate company by that name, how can you be sure that the people who have contacted you actually represented it? What is the email address they use for contact? Do they claim to have a website? What clues do you have as to their actual identity, other than their word for it?

Having said that, I'd be willing to lay ten-to-one odds that "Globox Logistics LLC" is a scam, even without further information. I've yet to see anyone ask about a job offer from a company calling itself something-or-other Logistics that isn't a scam.

Anonymous said...

How do I confirm if they are legit? They have a wesite and a portal for ppl who work for them. Everything on there looks legal and real.

Anonymous said...

This company is listed under BBB. They are not accredited but neither is google.

Spotter said...

Scammers also have legit-looking websites with portals for people to work for them. They make more money when they don't look like obvious scams.

If you'd supplied the address of the website, I may have been able to give you more detailed information. In lieu of that, I'll just go with my gut instinct and say you're probably walking into a trap.

Anonymous said...

Here is the address www.globoxlogistics.com.

Spotter said...

That address was registered anonymously late November last year, making it highly suspicious. The job description fits the profile of a reshipper scam. They probably purchase things from US merchants on stolen credit cards, and tell the merchant to ship the goods locally (within the USA) in order to reduce suspicion. The reshipper then forwards them on overseas. For one thing, the job involves aiding and abetting fraud, and for another thing, the fraudsters aren't all that likely to actually pay you anyhow.

PhiL Koster said...

Ive gotten the same email from Globox and they actually sent me an app and a contract.....they also have an address and a company stamp with a tax id # on it.....and obviously you are an independent contractor with no real tie to the company......basically the only personal thing they ask for besides basic info is drivers license # and if you have a PayPal account.....even if they dont pay you....whats to stop you from keepin the items that are sent?

Anonymous said...

I went through the same process with globox and apparently tommorrow is the day I get paid. Lets see if I really do. They have this cool control panel which tells you about your completed and future tasks and also your account balance.

Anonymous said...

Yes please update if you are paid. I have filled the application out with globox and have not shipped anything as of yet. just want to see if it is worth my Time

Spotter said...

"even if they dont pay you....whats to stop you from keepin the items that are sent?"

Repo men, or possibly police. Fraud is fraud, and the merchants know your address.

Anonymous said...

Its official. Globox Logistics is a scam. I got to know this the hard way. Wasted my gas delivering their packages to the post office. I m thankful I am out. It could have been worse. Whoever is approached my globox, don't take up the offer. Its a scam. And don't even think of keeping the packages. They know your adress and have your info. Globox look legit and legal but trust, its not. They are fake. Trust me. I am a victim

Spotter said...

The same scammers will be back next month under a different, freshly made-up name. You can't avoid scams by remembering the names of the bad guys, because they keep changing names (and using other people's names). You have to recognise them by the pattern of work they offer. You should assume that ANY job which involves being a middle-man for transferring money or physical goods is a scam unless you have VERY good evidence to the contrary.

Sashia said...

Thank you. I have recently been scammed by Trustway Logistics. The first email they sent me was: Dear Me,
My name is Marcy Crawford, the Human Resources Manager of MMT Logistics.
We have obtained your resume from job.com and if you still need the job, please email me back.
Regards,
Marcy Crawford

I have looked at what you have posted and they have done the same thing. They said they have sent the first package but because I read this, I have told them not to send anymore. Thank you.

Seems the newest name for the company is Open Logistics http://www.open-couriers.com/. I received the initial email last week claiming they had selected me, because of my resume on careerbuilder.com. They have a professional quality website. However, I cannot find any information regarding the company online. Red flags, bells, & whistles resounded as I read the email with growing suspicion. I mean REALLY; they are supposed to be a logistics company! Why would they need home workers to re-ship packages that were previously lost or misdirected? So, here's a copy of the job description: looking for a
right person for Logistics Coordinator position. As Logistics
Coordinator you will manage the delivery department from your home and
your main task will be monitoring the flow of internal correspondence
and packages. To complete this task we need an employee whose
responsibilities will include controlling our internal mail stream.
This stream will consist of mail pieces containing different kinds of
documents which can not be sent by fax or other communication means
when such documents may be exposed to an external party due to their
strictly confidential nature. Also, as we use rewards system for our
more than 6,000 employees to reward them for their achievements, you
will be responsible for forwarding our employees' gifts weighting not
more than 18 lbs as well as forwarding previously lost letters and
packages weighting not more than 42 lbs. Our practice shows that about
90 percent of the mail and packages declared lost in transit and is
being recovered at a later stage. And, as our company is maintaining
high standard quality of our services, we are paying great attention
to establishing good relationships with our customers. Having this in
mind we are trying to deliver every recovered item to its owner right
after it has been recovered. This task will involve you in forwarding
such packages to their owners or further in our delivery chain.
Briefly I should say that your part will be receiving all the postage
mentioned above, repack them with wrapping paper if necessary and ship
them out to the correct receiver. This position doesn't require any
investment from your pocket. Mail shipment is prepaid and you get
prepaid shipping labels for every package. We also provide you with
wrapping material and supplies before you get the first 'wrapping'
task.
Thank you for posting information regarding such scams. You have confirmed my suspicions & given me insight into the big picture.

Anyone know about wtl logistics? Sharonramsey2@hotmail.com is the email account and everytiime I get an email the send it by differnt name ie: jerry sykes, linda holloman, sharon ramesy. Want to know what's up

Spotter said...

It's a scam. That's what's up. Scammers use a big pool of names so that it's harder to identify them. If they're silly enough to use multiple names while talking to one person, however, it makes it kind of obvious that they're filthy liars.

Well the new scam is something called Tomexsa Logistics, Inc. I was pretty much approached the same with a job posted on indeed.com. After getting a email saying that I have reached the qualifications and they sent me 3 files containing FAQ's Employment Form, and the nature of the business which is to send packages once they get to me. The name they are using is John Walker as Human Resources Manager. They said "I will be paid threw pay pal, western union with no taxes taking out. I was dying laughing I couldn't do anything but laugh. They also sent a Business certificate "which was normal lol" of the company do you know at the end of it where they had the company's name printed it stated Tomexsa Logistics Ink.. <<That is not a typo Ink., not Inc., but Ink.. Man I needed a cigarette afterwards from laughing so hard.

After reading these posts, OBVIOUSLY another new SCAM name for the company is ZERTOG LOGISTICS out of Warsaw, Poland. Website is www.zertoglogistics.com
I was notified via email to send them my resume & then I was sent a Microsoft Word form of an application to fill out & send back. I checked out the website MANY times, Googled names & everything I thought might give me results about a successful company. Tried to check them out with the BBB but got no international results besides Canada. Saw a few RED FLAGS but still thought it may be legit. Thanks to EVERYONE before me that posted their experience!!! I know one thing: GOD works in mysterious ways; these scammers will get theirs some day, it will catch up to them........

Jerry H said...

I found this blog while trying to research if "Zertog Logistics" is legit. Just like the post on July 25, 2013, I received the same info that they did. Location is out of Warsaw, Poland. Wanted me to mail packages that were shipped to my home address. The money seemed too good to be true.

C&S Logistics Solutions looks exactly like a typical reshipper scam.

This is a scam--I just got this same letter today. CareerBuilder seems to be their job site of choice.

thank you I just got an email from C&S, nice to know some people are still looking out for those of us desperate to work.

I found this site cause I also got an email from Miroslav Horak. I suspected it was a scam and googled "C & S Logistics scam" and found this site. Wonder what the scam is? I know they are asking for personal information.

I too received this offer and I did register, luckily I didn't give my social, but I worry about what they will do with the information I did give. What exactly is the scam from C & S Logistic Solutions?

Anonymous said...

I also received a follow-up interview.....definately felt shady and couldn't find the phone number or C & S Logistics Solutions as an accredited company. I worry though about the personal information they already have of mine, here is the phone number to help shut these scams down (206) 201-2452. Please advise!

Most online scams which call themselves "something-or-other Logistics" are reshipper scams. They purchase goods online via fraudulent means, such as stolen credit cards, and want you to act as a shipping address because merchants are generally suspicious of international purchases. In short, they use reshipping agents to increase their success rate at conducting fraud. You don't want to be their "employee" under any circumstances.

I work for them too, Today is my actual 31st day so I'm expecting to get paid did you ever get paid by the company

james green said...

I been working for c&s logistics solutions for a month and today supposed to be my payday, and I haven't gotten paid yet. I signed the contract from the lawfirm Hampton barstow and pelham. I sent packages update the shipping information from the control panel. I'll talk to my supervisor like every other day. So it seems legit, but not until I officially get paid. I called the lawfirm but it goes directly to their voicemail. Any help? I keep calling my supervisor but no answer. I'm getting really frustrated.

Well I too have been scammed by this:( the scammer this time however went under the name of vision logistical solutions.....I received packages and printed labels and all of them went to Moscow Russia. ...October 16 was supposed to be my "pay date" and I never received a dime....so sad....I'm a single mom n this money could've really helped my family:(

Spotter said...

It's a scam. Even if they paid you, they would do it with stolen money or a forged check. Chalk this one up to experience, and don't get suckered again. Reshipper jobs are scams -- all of them -- end of story.

Brad Coop said...

This question is for James Green,

I also started with this C&S company I wanted to see if you had been paid or not. I could use the extra income but if it's fake then I am done?

james green said...

To Brad Cooper. Its a scam! I sent them tons of emails and called numerous times. No reply. I couldn't even access the control panel yesterday. Now I can today. It's not real even the law firm one of the so called lawyers is an real estate agent/lawyer. I say keep the stuff and take it to a pawn shop. Fuck it! But they are bogus as hell!!!!

Spotter said...

I strongly advise against trying to sell or otherwise profit from goods that have been purchased fraudulently using your home as a shipping address (which is what's really going on here). Refuse delivery of the goods if you can, or hold them for collection if you can't. The rightful owners will probably want them back sooner or later, and they probably have the law on their side.

I got the same offer I knew it was a scam so I took their goods. One MacBook pro one hp touch smart and an apple iPad. And 4 iPhone S. They thought they was going to fool me lol. An

I have the same problem with another company & I signed the contract with them but I don't want to be part of that after i viewed that the shipping info is by my name what is the next legal step to solve that problem? especially that they had a copy of my passport.

Spotter said...

If goods are being shipped to you, I recommend that you refuse delivery if you can (ask that the package be returned to sender because you believe that the goods have been obtained on false pretences), or simply hold them for future collection if you can't. If you have divulged passport information, it's probably prudent to act as you would if it were lost or stolen.

I received this e-mail and it was also from a resume that was posted on Career Builder: My first e-mail was sent form a company called Real Logistics, and then the same e-mail address was sent but with a different company name Global Logistics Solutions.

am a manager at RLS.

Our company RLS is a logistics company, which acts as the middle man in the buying and shipping orders process. The items are bought in the U.S. from other countries then shipped overseas to whomever the buyer might be. Why is our company needed? There are many companies that do not ship to other countries outside of the U.S. because the international fees can become very high based on the product that is bought. Instead, what the companies do is they hire shipping companies like us that do the logistics work for them. The transportation specialist responsibility will be managing the orders for us. This particular position is Home Based that is part-time. You will receive support along the process for the first month that you are employed.
Let me know if you are insterested, I will answer your questions
and provide you with more details on how to start etc.

Best regards,
Real Logistics Solutions

I received an email from Victoria Townsend on behalf of NEOVIO LOGISTICS telling me about a juicy job offer of reshipping stuff.
It looked too good to be true and the lady kept on sending me mail convincing me.
Being the smart guy I am,I googled NEOVIO LOGISTICS SCAM and was brought here..
Thank you guys,you saved my broke self

They sent me a camera today from Florida then ask me to send to new York that don't sound rite I kept it Cuz I know it was fraud n the guy whoever Scott McMurry is gone be pissed Cuz they r ordering up high tech stuff n his name

Seems they're using Trast Logistics to hit AUS and NZ at the moment. Wen to thei website which while pretty has no content whatsoever - number one flag. Number two flag - Western union transfer -always used by scammers - number three flag, the amount of personal info they want from me - all about being able to find me nothing to do with being able to find them. number four flag earn between $1500 and $4000 a month to reship packages - may not be drugs but will most definitely be illegal.
Final Flag - this website. save yourself the heartache and ignore it or have fun creating a fictional agent for them to send to... I most certainly am not afraid of them given the surveillance I have on them.

Before reading all these comments I came SO CLOSE to sending all my personal info including photocopy of driver's license, employment history, etc., to a likely reshipper/forwarder scammer called us-visbeen.nl from the netherlands supposedly.

I'm still waiting for a reply from the "real" 89 year-old Visbeen logistics company, which I think has no connection with these twerps and doesn't know their good name is being abused, to see if they know anything about the Logistics Agent position I was going to apply for.

It LOOKS so damn legitimate, the forms I downloaded are perfect, everything seems appropriate except a bunch of misspellings and grammar mistakes in the body of the emails-which you might expect from a non-English European.

But AFTER reading all your comments and warnings, it does seem like the money is a little too good to be true, even with all the reverse-reverse psychology these cheeseballs pull with our emotions.

So I probably won't waste Spotter's time by asking about the Visbeen version of the scam (unless he's already heard of it surfacing the last few weeks).

Seems like just the thing where I would innocently sign up, surrender all my personal ID info, get involved in shady stuff without knowing it, diligently do my (their) work for an entire month or so, never get paid for my efforts, and then get tossed like used toilet paper......only to be replaced by the next sucker coming along behind me, because there are a lot of suckers out there!

Sound familiar to any of you?

Has anyone heard of Visbeen Company- position is Logistics Manager. Is this a legit company for receiving and shipping packages for working from home?

Spotter said...

Anything which involves "work at home" and "logistics manager" is basically guaranteed to be a reshipper scam. The name will just be something made up recently, because anything not sufficiently recent has a long line of easily-searchable scam reports on the Internet.

When they don't pay you, and the police come around asking about all the fraudulently purchased goods being shipped to your address, then you can be sure it's a scam. You probably want to quit before you get that kind of certainty, though.

I have been shipping for a company for several weeks. I just think it's to good to be true. I'm suppose to get paid next week. What should I do? This is one of the emails I was sent.

We received your contract paperwork to our sister branch some time ago.
Are you still interested in logistics part time job?
Please let me know and our HR manager will give you a call.
Thank you.
