shipping receiving offer
does anybody have any dealing with a company offering a clerk shipping receiving job from home by the name of "Parcel N Post"?
Re: shipping receiving offer
There is no job.
There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money and maybe your freedom.
The scammer will want you to accept packages purchased with stolen credit cards at YOUR home address. The you are suppose to re-box the electronics, high end clothing and jewelry and ship it all onto the scammer using a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number. When the credit card owners, online companies and UPS/FedEx discover the fraud, you get the real life job of paying them all back. Then the local law enforcement agency comes knocking asking why are you fencing stolen goods for someone you never met, don't know their real name and have no idea where they are really located.
The scammer will also demand you cash an "accidentally-printed-for-too-much" fake paycheck sent on a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number and send the "overage" to the scammer via Western Union or moneygram. The check bounces and you get the real life job of paying back the bank.
Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.
If you have responded to that scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great work-at-home jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.
You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information.
Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.
Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.
6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs:
1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.
2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.
6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.
Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.
If you google "fake shipping clerk job", "Western Union fake check scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam.
