    EMS Freight Forwarding Scam

    The following is the original email sent to me about the job inquiry

    We found your application on CareerBuilder and now we (the EMS Team) are glad to offer you a part-time employment opportunity in the logistics and shipping field.

    Summary of the position:

    The main reason our customers use our delivery service because of the fact that many of the United States retailers, due to the their policies are refusing to ship the bought products to many countries overseas, in which our clients reside.

    The Freight Forwarder is essentially responsible for the middle phase of the delivery process.

Receives the customers products in a timely manner, delivered directly to the employee’s home address, with the use of freight data provided in the Virtual Office System, consisting of the freight’s tracking number; the approximate time of delivery; description of the contents of the freight and more.
    • Ensures the undamaged condition of the freight through the conduct of inspection of the freight contents, ** opening the delivered parcels and reviewing the items for any possible damage.
    • In case the item is damaged, Freight Forwarder sends it back to the retail company.
    • Upon verification of the condition, repacks the content back in the parcel and prepares for delivery.
    • With the use of the prepaid shipping labels, issued ** the Supervisor, forwards the merchandise further to the customer’s destination.


    Job Requirements:

    • United States Citizenship, Permanent Resident Status or the Legal Work Permit

    • Professional Attitude
    • Perfect sense of time management and discipline

    For application or an additional info please contact us ** simply replying to this letter. In the e-mail please provide your telephone number, or else we wouldn’t be able to return your inquiry.
    The work is real enough, but suspect. Packages are shipped to your home under the "names" of their original purchasers. These may be false, because the packages had always been shipped to Russia, and the people these packages are shipped to in Russia are different than the names on the packages when you receive them.

    In the end they don't pay you. The "contract" you sign stipulates that you start getting paid 30 days after you receive your first package. It's been well over that for me and they aren't responding to any of my messages, and have all together stopped communicating with me. I am still receiving packages related to the position despite this.

    The points of contact with this "company" are-
    Michael Dvincev- michaeldvincev@expressmailservice.net
    +7 (495) 744-5544
    Maxim Bauer- maximbauer@expressmailservice.net
    +7 (495) 431-5740
    the employee website is http://bpo.bpo-expressmailservice.net/login.php

    Whether the job is legitimate or not (once again, probably not), they don't pay. Don't let the same happen to you.

    Re: EMS Freight Forwarding Scam

    those "names" are likely names of people that had their credit card info stolen. when they complain, the only address the police will be able to find is yours. or they could just be made up names.

    there is no job reshipping from home - always criminal scam.

    Re: EMS Freight Forwarding Scam

    100% scam.

    There is no job.

    There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money and maybe your freedom.

    The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "assistant" and will demand you accept packages purchased with stolen credit cards, hi-jacked paypal accounts and spoofed bank transfers, at YOUR home address. Then you are suppose to use a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number to send the electronics, clothing and jewelry overseas. When the websites, credit card/paypal/bank account owners and UPS/FedEx discover the fraud, you get the real life job of paying back ALL of them. Then the local law enforcement comes knocking asking why are you fencing stolen merchandise for someone you never met, don't know their real life name and have no idea in what country they really live.

    Another email will be from the scammer and will demand you cash a large fake check sent on a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number and send most of the money via Western Union or moneygram back to the scammer posing as the "supply company" while you "keep" a portion of the cash. When your bank realizes the check is fake and it bounces, you get the real life job of paying back the bank for the bounced check fees and all the bank's money you sent to an overseas criminal.

    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.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his '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 being the perfect buyer, great 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 re-shipping job", "fraud money mule scam", or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam.

    You need to cease responding to those criminals, refuse any more packages and tell your local law enforcement agency what you have been doing before you are arrested for fencing stolen goods.
