Type of a scam Employment
This was a re-shipping scam under the covers of work from home employment. Very sophisticated website,m as well as control panel to track your received parcels with label download tabs, shipping tabs and everything one would expect. Requested to sign employment contract, even fill out W4 for taxes. Salary was to be paid 30 days after first package received. Packages arrived with someone else's name on them, but close to my own, so assumed it was a typo. I was told by Debra Melancon to ignore it and the important part was to check the contents matched the inside shipping label, remove the original label and print the new shipping label and drop off at USPS. Another 6 or 7 parcels arrived over a 15 day period, all similar items of clothing which were duly shipped off as requested. After 2 weeks I received a call to commend me on the great job and offered a promotion that paid $***/month plus 5% commission on each transaction.
This suddenly changed to being a forwarding agent for the financial side of the business which involved cash transactions.
she sent me a contract to sign and explained that I would be required to open a LLC with myself being named as manager. They would front the money to open the account at BofA but I would need tom open the business with DBPR for them.
They would have manufacturers shipping goods to wholesalers who would deposit the funds into the business account as a kind of escrow account until the goods had been confirmed. After this I would need to transfer the funds to the account they instructed me to. I would get to keep 5% of the amount and get paid $***/mo for doing this. They would take care of any business taxes and since they had a W4 on file my personal taxes would be handled by them as well.
After that call and receipt of the letter, I immediately felt there was something wrong with this picture and that it sounded like some money laundering scheme.
I started to do some research online and found out where Debra Melancon lived, being Anaheim CA, as well as the start up of the websites, both in the last 60 days. They traced back to a Chinese man who I also found an address on back in China. Debra had a Russian personal email and phone # which seemed to be Anaheim where she rents a home next door to the Anaheim Marriott.
I immediately sent her emails and left messages that I could not accept the new position and that I needed to immediately cease the current shipping position due to a family emergency, since I have to fly out with 24 hours.
She did not return any calls nor did she email me after the calls and emails.
This could have been a total disaster had I not checked into this and started the "new job" what sounded like being a "money mule" as the scam site refer to it.
Be very careful of this person and company or variations of it as she seems to start a new site every 2 months or so.
The other associate "STUFFER" of hers seems to be in DE by the name of:
2401 Ogletown Rd
Newark, DE 19711-6403
Seems like they have been derailing buyers goods from Ebay as well............https://community.ebay.com/t5/Shipping-Returns/VERY-strange...in...⇄ />
This is a huge crime syndicate that needs to be stopped but seems there is not much anyone can do in the US to get the authorities to take action as it is all online complaints only and when asking anyone, they all say they have so much crime to deal with and no personal to handle it. I guess these criminals know that and of course just move ahead at our expense!!
Its about time to stop the PC and do as other Countries do.............put these people away and out of our Country......America First!!!
